Full description
Participants will gather at the meeting point on Otres Beach 2 at 4:30 PM. After introductions, you’ll get a lesson on stand-up paddleboarding, or SUP, to assure that you’ll have all the skills to enjoy your venture across the tropical waters. The group will board a private, local-style boat for a 15-minute ride to Koh Tres, a nearby island.

After being given masks and snorkels, as well expert advice on snorkeling in the area, you’ll have 30 minutes to freely explore the crystal-clear waters. Life vests will be available as an option for those who wish to wear them. Afterwards, you’ll head back to the boat to be equipped with a SUP and an adjustable paddle. Explore the waters surrounding the island for about 1 hour, taking in the stunning sights of untouched natural beauty.

After enjoying the sunset from your SUP, head back to the boat to enjoy a picnic. Enjoy 1 soft drink or beer paired with bread, vegetables, and a tasty dip. As it grows dark, you’ll hop back into the warm waters to swim amongst the glowing, bioluminescent plankton that call the waters home. Swim through the sparkling water as it becomes brighter as you move through it. After your swim you’ll hop back on the boat for the 15 minute boat trip back to Otres, arriving around 7:30 PM.
