My wife and I had a fabulous time SUP'ing in Bayahibe. Mari was the perfect guide, gauging our level of experience, giving us tips, and customizing the trip to our desires. For us, we loved SUP'ing around to the reefs for snorkeling.The fish and scenery were gorgeous, the pacing was relaxed, and Mari was incredibly nice and easy to work... More

This was the first time I tried SUP and it was real nice and funny! It is harder than it looks and my legs shaked a lot in the beginning but after some practice, I started to enjoy the ride. A great way to spend a couple of hours!

This was our first time SUP. So glad we took the lesson. It made the experience so much fun. Well worth it. I think had we tried it without the lesson we would have really struggled. Mari and Jimmi were awesome. Patient and they didn't click watch. Great conversation and intetesting stories. Loved the shrimp pedicure and the fresh fruit... More

It was our first experience with SUP but definitely not the last one. We contacted Mari via Facebook and agreed on 2hours session. She came to pick us up in front of our hotel Catalonia Gran Dominicus and took us to Bayahibe village. We paddled to beautiful hidden beach where we could snorkeling, she showed us small lake with fish... More

This was my boyfriend and my second time SUPing. Mari is wonderful, she is so sweet and patient with teaching us. She brings her camera along and takes a ton of great pictures of you then shares them promptly on Facebook! You stop on a cute little island and Mari brings a little picnic with fruit. Overall such a great... More

I've had the opportunity to SUP in numerous locations around the world and this was by far my best trip. Mari is an outstanding and gracious guide. We had a fantastic time paddling the waters outside Bayahibe. I'd highly recommend this trip to both experienced and new paddlers alike. Thanks for making my short stay in Bayahibe so worthwhile Mari!!!

Once we found the location everything went smooth. There are no signs and if we didn't ask someone would never have found it. The person we asked was obviously trying to sell us hats but we politely declined and he wasn't pushy. But once there Mari was awesome and the paddle boarding was great. We were able to paddle board... More
