We will paddle to a beautiful secluded spot for a picnic, take you to stunning view points, maybe catch a cheeky wave, and even do a bit of paddle board yoga if you are up for it! We individually tailor our itinerary to suit all ages and abilities. A complimentary stand-up paddle board lesson is offered with this tour.
