Tours can be designed according to the skill level of paddler/s. We want all to experience the joys of the breath-taking surroundings while paddling the open water. One can have the experience of a lifetime within moments of leaving the beach as a beautiful turtle appears, or paddle around the Island and be open the endless posibilities. The opportunity to paddle next to huge schools of fish and watch the dophin play are a reality at Pearl Island Paddle. The birds of the Pacific are another magnifacant sight. We will paddle along the Island's dymanic lava rock cliffs. Excursions to other Islands are also availble--we can make it happen.
