Activity was very fun and interesting, the guide (Bruno) not much so. They took us to multiple caves based on the level of the tide, quite interesting! But the guide was somewhat annoying; getting quite pissed at us for being quite bad at padding (we are total beginners). Overall I would still recommend... but the guide left us quite a sour aftertaste.

The tour was super organized! You could borrow a waterproof bag for free to store your cell phone. From start to finish you were accompanied and instructed throughout. I conducted myself very confidently on the water and in the caves. Bruno is a great guide and took nice photos while SUPing. Since you are not allowed to enter the Bengali Caves by boat, I decided to do the SUP tour. That was definitely the right decision!

We were on the tour at 7:15am. It was very worthwhile in the cave there were only up to 10 people, not more. Initially cold on land but once we were in the water you didn't feel the cold anymore. It was relatively windy and we sometimes had to paddle hard. The tour and the Guido are recommended :)
