Frequently Asked Questions
Beginner lessons are designed to get you up and paddling in the shortest amount of time while still giving you a full WPA (World Paddleboarding Association) based lesson… with lots of smiles and fun thrown in.
You MUST be able to swim. No questions asked. Not necessarily like Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz, but you should be able to comfortably tread water if you fall off the board.
You might want to bring some sunscreen and or a Rash Guard, towel and your smile 🙂
Morning Lessons and Paddles are better for Pictures and seeing the beautiful colours in the water and on the reef.
Evening Lessons and Sunset Paddles are more peaceful and relaxing and the sunsets can be stunning.

For those of you who might like to combine a nice Paddle and a Snorkel Tour to see some Sea Turtles, this one is for you!
We offer Paddles from select locations to swim with the beautiful Sea Turtles.
A small Selection of Masks & Snorkels are provided, but it is recommended to bring your own.
These tours last about 1.5 to 2 hours and while seeing a Turtle is probable, it is not guaranteed as these are wild creatures that come and go as they please.
