Highlights
  • No experience needed: introductory SUP lesson in Providenciales
  • Paddleboards navigate places too shallow and narrow for boats
  • Watch for wildlife in a thriving coastal environment
  • A focus on plants and animals makes this ideal for nature lovers
What to Expect
Start with a basic lesson in stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), learning to balance on your board, steer, and maneuver before launching your board into a shallow estuary lined with mangroves. Paddle alongside the SUP guides on your way to a mangrove island and then discover hidden paths that lead into the island interior. Watch for eagle rays, turtles, conch, and starfish, as well as coastal bird, including cormorants, egrets, and pelicans; the food-rich mangroves attract a wide range of species. Advanced SUPers can brush up their paddling techniques with tips from the guides, or you can just soak up the sun, sea, and quiet coastal environment before returning to shore.

My family (group of 8) did the bioluminescent mangrove tour at sunset. Most used SUP's but two of us opted for kayak. The tour guide was excellent, took great care of the group and made us feel welcome and not rushed at all. I recommend this outfit for a SUP trip.

Despite heavy winds during our tour, we had a great time with our guide, Mowi, touring the Mangroves. He was very knowledgeable and patient, towing my two kids around attached to his paddleboard. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone!
