    What to Expect
    SUP Eco-Tour ~ 2hrs

    Enjoy our pioneering tour into the mangroves to see amazing marine and bird life of the National

    Reserve just five minutes away from our office. Our expert guides provide thorough instruction at

    every step of the way.  Dave Kalama runs a kamp with us every year, so our expert guides are passing along his technique.

    Departure is from our location in Leeward Marina.  

    High tide is essential for visiting the mangroves, making departure times vary daily as the tide moves through the day.  There are always a couple days a month where the tide is outside of business hours where the trip may not be available.  On these days we are happy to work with you and do a trip outside the mangroves if weather conditions allow.

    We had an amazing time doing a SUP tour in the mangroves. We did not book private but only had one other couple in a kayak with us. They keep group sizes small which really made it more special. The water is super calm and the currents are not strong so even a beginner

    I booked a paddleboard excursion with my family with this company and was extremely disappointed with them. To start I booked this trip before going to Turks and Caicos. When I mentioned that my family and I were going to the front desk at the hotel, the manager had a negative

    We are very sorry to hear of your experience. While we have tried to find your trip to ensure this doesn't happen again, we haven't been able to locate it. Its very rare for our transportation to be so late as that would effect the trip leaving on time. There may have been a miscommunication with the pick up time, our apologies for that. We pride ourselves in providing value for money and ensuring our guides are well trained to ensure you receive information about the location you are going to as well as the safety and instruction for paddling. We would not have an objection to you going to the front desk, but would like the opportunity to investigate this further if you are willing to talk to us directly and provide some details. Our apologies for not delivering a superior experience for you on this day and would like the opportunity to make it up to you should you return to Turks & Caicos.

    My wife and I did the 2 hour (which turned into 2.5hr) Stand-up paddle tour through the Mangroves. Although we have a good bit of stand-up paddle board experience, there was another couple on our tour whom were doing it for the first time and the trip was great for all skill

    We went out on the SUP tour through the mangroves. This really was amazing we were complete beginners and after a few simple instructions before we set off we were away. We saw lots of turtles and some lemon sharks among other wildlife. This is a must do while you are on the

    We take pride in ensuring guest satisfaction. Unfortunately, the weather is out of our control and every effort was made to make the trip happen for you. Safety is first of course and you were not satisfied with being given the option of doing the trip in a kayak instead. With our apologies, we confirmed you would be given a full refund and taken back to your hotel. The refund was on account through Island Routes, we were assured by them it was taken care of immediately. The pick up at your respective hotels was not late, in fact early. We were not aware of any misinformed or misunderstood pick up time. In driving you back to your hotel, part of your family was staying at an alternate hotel, requesting you all be returned to Beaches. As the driver trusted you with the request, made the assumption you had permission to be on the all inclusive property. Upon receiving a call from the hotel, it seems you were not. The hotel requested the portion of your family on property without permission depart. We were advised by the hotel, it was explained to them by you would promptly write an unfavorable review on us and everyone, if they were required to leave. Upon further attempt to reach you to discuss and unfair negative review, we were unsuccessful. It’s unfortunate you have chosen this method to express your dissatisfaction with false information.
