    What to Expect
    The appointment is at The Yak Lake House, we welcome you with coffee ready. We use this time to make sure that everyone is ready to start.

    The tour begins with an instruction on the fundamentals of SUP, learning to stand up, to fall without hurting yourself, the correct posture, how to row and turn, and other basic techniques to enjoy SUP.

    The first place we visited during the tour is the amazing black cenote, the deepest part of the whole lagoon, where you can swim, snorkel or just sit on your board and listen to nature while waiting to see the sun rise on the other side of the horizon. A magical experience that we will make sure to save in photos for you.

    After this, we will cross the lagoon to reach the pirate channel, the emblematic road that was used a long time ago by European pirates to attack the town of Bacalar, where you will marvel at its different shades of turquoise blue.

    At the end of the tour, around 9:30 am, we will have a well-deserved full breakfast at the facilities of the Yak Lake House.

    We've had an amazing tour with Maria, Isis and Darcy. They shared their knowledge about the lagoon and took great pictures of us. It's worth getting up early for this tour!

    Hi Ann, thank you very much for sharing your comment with us. I understand that your experience was very different from what we really offer and although it is our responsibility to inform the characteristics of the lagoon, and the care we must have to protect it, obviously, on this occasion one of our instructors failed to mix their personal opinions with what should have been a brief talk of verifiable facts. For us it is very important the satisfaction of our customers and that our staff is happy doing their work, that is why I will address this situation personally to understand what happened on this specific day and take the appropriate actions so that it does not happen again in the future. What SUP Bacalar Team.

    I went on the sunrise tour. The tour guides did a good job explaining how to use the paddle board and it was easier than I expected. The guides were really nice and were great about taking pictures. The view was beautiful at sunrise; I would highly recommend this tour!
