We had a great tour with Powers despite being very windy. Powers was very patient and at the same time fun. He was interesting and made our trip enjoyable.

We had a great time. Very professional and friendly group. Kids would do fine on this. Powers was our guide and he was a great teacher. We would highly recommend this as a group activity. Go with SUP Safari for your paddle boarding trip!
