Excellent tour with a friendly, passionate and professional guide. The mangrove was amazing and seeing it on a SUP board was the perfect way to do it. Absolutely recommend it.

We had a great time with the surf only tour. Even managed to ride a wave on the board up to the end. Coordination was easy and flexible, you get all material at the scene. Highly recommended, it was lots of fun.
