We had such a great time on our SUP river adventure with Kevin & Joanne. The river was beautiful and the pictures they took and sent to us were a surprise added bonus! Kevin knew so much about the river and the Costa Rican wildlife. Super well organized and a wonderful memory for our family. Highly recommend!!!

We had a great time on our SUP trip with Kevin and Joanne. They are a calm, friendly couple who work well together. The estuary is a unique and peaceful place. Not tons of wildlife to see, but fun to explore the mangrove environment. Even though some of us had never paddle boarded before, we had no issues. Paddle boarding does require some physical strength because you sometimes paddle against the current, but overall not too strenuous. Kevin is a good teacher and no one feels rushed. The drive to the estuary was an adventure in and of itself, but Kevin and Joanne guide you the whole way.

This was such fun excursion! Kevin and Janne were very together and couldn't be nicer. The estuary river tour was so peaceful and and it was just a delight to be out there at a leisurely pace to soak in the environment while Kevin answered so many questions. He was super knowledgeable. Thank You!

An estuary paddle board tour with Kevin and Joann is a MUST when in and around Playa Negra. Kevin and Joann are very organized and conscientious about making the experience safe and enjoyable. The paddle boards are excellent and Kevin's pre-take-off orientation perfect. The estuary is incredibly interesting and the tour will leave you with a deeper understanding of the diversity of this incredible area. Highly recommend you make time for the estuary tour.

While staying at a beachfront hotel in Playa Negra, my husband (a skilled surfer) and I decided to schedule an SUP excursion. We were pleasantly surprised when the guide who came to get us (Kevin) was the same man we had seen for several days riding the waves with his SUP board. Kevin and Joanne took us to a nearby estuary, and although we didn't see a lot of wildlife, it was serene and beautiful. We weren't new to SUPing (I have mainly done flat water SUP) but Kevin gave me great tips to improve my skill and I am now inspired to try SUP wave riding. Kevin and Joanne are a calm and delightful couple, inspiring examples of great health and Pura Vida for those of us who are no longer 20 years old
