It was wonderful and the guides were amazing. The kids had a blast. So far they said it was the best thing they’ve done since we’ve been on the island. Thanks for the memories.

We had such a great time paddle boarding. Ki was our instructor and she was so helpful, clear in her instructions, and a lot of fun to spread an evening with learning a new sport. I highly recommend it--especially the sunset tour.

Yes, the sunset time is AMAZING. We are at a location known for its sunsets, and what is a better way to enjoy it than paddling on the water?

Mariah was very friendly and supportive. The Eco Adventure seems long, but it's quite manageable if you have the dexterity, the view is gorgeous, and the break in between really helps.

No problem! Many of our paddlers are non-swimmers. We have lifejackets for your safety, and all our head instructors are certified life-guards.
