Capital SUP’s 2021 Partners & Sponsors

Thank You 2021 Partners!

Three staff members pose to show the logos of Capital SUP partners on their tee shirts.

One thing we love about Annapolis is the strong sense of community, which is only heightened within our own paddling family. We are continually impressed by the way our little city rallies together to support one another. That’s why we want to take a second to give a shout out to our preferred partners. Our partners are all small businesses in Annapolis whose generous sponsorships and contributions help to keep us afloat (literally and figuratively). It really does take a village, and we’re grateful to be a part of this one! 



Rise Up Coffee

Rise Up Coffee has had a meteoric rise since their start on the Eastern Shore in 2005. From one modest food truck to now 11 thriving locations, Rise Up was recently voted ‘Maryland’s Best Coffee’ and is committed to offering the finest, artisanal roasted, sustainable small batch coffees. All Rise Up coffee is Certified Organic + Certified Fair Trade. Their aromatic brews fuel all of our sunrise paddles and many other events. Sign up for a sunrise paddle here



Vida Taco Bar

Vida Taco Bar logoVida has the best tacos downtown! Vida is passionate about offering a distinctively delicious fusion experience, using locally sourced “Farm to Taco” ingredients whenever possible. Their line up of margaritas and other seriously yummy cocktails are made with juices that are freshly squeezed daily, and are the perfect addition to a hot summer day. For a truly refreshing experience, try one of their signature margs at one of our yoga classes! Sign up for one of our themed yoga paddles here.

They’re committed to providing choices for the health conscious consumer that are as convenient as they are delicious, and always choose the eco-friendly option. Try one of their insanely good superfood smoothie bowls at one of our ‘Balance & Bowls’ yoga classes. Sign up for one of our themed yoga paddles here.




Sailor Oyster Bar

Born out of a passion for food and a love of the sea, SOB is an Annapolis favorite for oysters, craft cocktails, and uniquely curated specialty foods. Their menu boasts dishes both traditional and inventive, with ingredients made in-house from their pickles to their hot sauce. SOB donates all of their used oyster shells to Oyster Recovery Partnership to further the mission of improving the health of the Bay.




Dock Street Bar and Grill

Dock Street Bar and Grill logoHome of best crabcakes in Annapolis, Dock Street has been a downtown favorite for over a decade. Their extensive offerings of food and drink, combined with their welcoming, friendly, and fun environment, has solidified their status as a go-to haunt for locals. Navy midshipmen know Dock Street as a home away from home, and for good reason — owner Mike Wroten’s motto is that “beer tastes the same everywhere, the difference is the vibe you create”. 




Eastport Kitchen 

Eastport Kitchen logoUnderstanding the ability for food to bring people together, owners Tony & Celia Moynagh sought to create a space in their community that offered delicious cuisine with locally sourced ingredients. Eastport Kitchen is open 7 days a week with a full breakfast and lunch menu, but you’ll also want to check out their separate, seasonally rotating dinner menu. Try the CAPSUP breakfast burrito!
