What you'll do
Let's Paddle!! Before we enter the water we'll have a briefing and I will explain the basics of Stand Up Paddling and how to use the equipment. After answering any questions you have we will enter the water on our paddle boards. Gizzie rides on the front of my board. The entry area is super calm so you'll have all the time you need to get comfortable Paddling. You'll soon get the hang of this fun sport. We will stay in the flat calm water to make your experience the most fun for all your group. There is a small Mayan Ruin near by so if conditions and group ability allow us to, we will paddle out to this special architectural place. If the weather conditions aren't so great (like strong wind and big waves) we will paddle in the calm water to a near by inlet (La Caleta), where you'll have time to swim and take photos. Bring your mask along and a water proof case for your phone. I will be taking photos of the group and I'll share them with you after the tour at no extra cost. Be prepared to get wet! Falling off is fun and if your don't fall its always nice to jump in for a swim or snorkel to refresh yourselves during the tour. BOOK YOUR TIME!! Feel free to ask for your preferred tour time if you don't see it listed.

My best buddy Gizzie and I will guide you through the flat calm channels of Puerto Aventuras marina. Originally from England, I came to the Riviera Maya in 1996 discovering this amazing paradise. Gizmo and I have been Paddling for the last 5 years. After completing my WPA (World Paddle Association) Paddle board Instructor certification I went on to become a WPA Master Trainer, certifying other Instructors. I've been guiding paddle tours for 3 years. Gizzie is a Shih tzu. They don't usually like the water but Gizmo loves to be with me so if I'm on a paddle board so is he! He loves it!
