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?
