Our highly experienced SUP coaches will be happy to give you SUP lessons in a quiet bay so that you can learn to paddle step by step and in a fantastic setting; they will be happy to give you tips and accompany you on your first paddle attempts.

And don’t forget that our trips are about much more than just paddling: you’ll take a boat trip through an impressive island world, explore beautiful port towns, sit in a beach bar with friends and watch the sun set over the sea…
