Guadeloupe: Mangrove Stand Up Paddleboard Experience

1. Guadeloupe: Mangrove Stand Up Paddleboard Experience

After an introductory stand up paddleboard course from your qualified instructor on the Plage de Babin beach, head towards Macou Island while exploring the mangroves on the way. Thanks to the clarity of the water, enjoy exceptional views of the Caribbean marine life as your friendly guide provides interesting explanations. Learn why mangroves are such an essential ecosystem for Guadeloupe, acting as a nursery for marine life, as well as a filter and protection for the island itself. The excursion takes you through the mangrove forest in this protected area that is not accessible by boat. Enjoy privileged access as you see the different species living underwater such as multicolored fish, starfish, rays, crabs, and coral. See the colonies of pelicans, herons, and frigates perched in the mangroves and soaring overhead before returning back to Plage de Babin beach.



Un spot idéal pour pratiquer le yoga et contempler l'environnement, la faune et la flore présentes sur place rendent l'endroit vivant et ressourçant. Entre mangrove et campagne le lieu est une ouverture sur le grand cul de sac marin reliant le nord Basse Terre au nord Grande Terre. Réputée pour les bains de boue thérapeutiques ( argile noire marine ) dont les locaux se badigeonnent régulièrement en famille, la plage de Babin reste malgré tout peu fréquentée ce qui lui confère cette authenticité très appréciée. Une expérience inédite à vivre en famille ou entres amis.

MAT is a brilliant guide who took advantage of this paddle excursion to explain to us the basics of standing up, and to show us the mangroves, all the way inside through small hidden tunnels, with a wealth of explanations about this fragile balance of the ecosystem + as a bonus the address of a great spot for very very good lunch on the port of old town! Thanks!

Ideal for enjoying this extraordinary nature, this outing allows you to admire the aquatic fauna and exceptional flora. The guide wishes to convey to us the love of this place as idyllic as it is fragile. Very pleasant to navigate at a gentle pace which makes us enjoy this place to the fullest.

Very good activity to recommend to others. An effective and very playful initiation from Matthieu. The latter is very involved and speaks of the mangrove as a connoisseur.

fantastic morning - lovely people and great experience to be in the mangroves
