On this approximately 3-hour tour you will learn the basics of stand-up paddle boarding including safety points, equipment handling, and paddling technique - if you have never paddled before.

You will then paddle from Playa Uvita to Punta Uvita (Whale's Tail) where you will snorkel in the calm waters of the Ballena Marine National Park with the chance to see a variety of colorful fish around and among the rocks and coral that make up the Whale's Tail.

This activity is a great way to see wildlife and appreciate the beauty of this place from another perspective. After snorkeling you will arrive at the famous Whale's Tail to rest and have a snack of water and fruit, and enjoy the beach for about 15 minutes. Then you will return to your board to paddle back to Playa Uvita.
