Eric the instructor was outstanding. He is very passionate about not only paddle boarding, but also nature as well.

Paddle boarding was much easier... More

It was really easy to book a tour for the same day. My tour guide, Eric, was really friendly and knowledgable of the area, which made the tour fantastic. This was my first time trying SUP, and I would definitely recommend Eco Tours!
