Full description
After an introductory stand up paddleboard course from your qualified instructor on the Plage de Babin beach, head towards Macou Island while exploring the mangroves on the way. Thanks to the clarity of the water, enjoy exceptional views of the Caribbean marine life as your friendly guide provides interesting explanations. Learn why mangroves are such an essential ecosystem for Guadeloupe, acting as a nursery for marine life, as well as a filter and protection for the island itself. The excursion takes you through the mangrove forest in this protected area that is not accessible by boat. Enjoy privileged access as you see the different species living underwater such as multicolored fish, starfish, rays, crabs, and coral. See the colonies of pelicans, herons, and frigates perched in the mangroves and soaring overhead before returning back to Plage de Babin beach.

    La ballade en Paddle était sympa. J avais un peu d appréhension à réussir à tenir debout. Matt est rassurant et de très bon conseil. Il prends le temps de vous expliquer les roles de la mangrove, de nous faire partager ses connaissances sur la faune et la flore. Ça été un super guide ! Je recommande.
