Neither of us had done stand up paddle boarding before, but our instructor was patient with us as we learnt! It was an amazing experience and fun to do something a little bit different.

We loved it! Kayaking, swimming, snorkeling and we got to jump from a cliff/rock if we wanted to. Our guide was lovely and looked after us really well. Would definitely recommend!
