You can call me Joe. I love water sports and the marine life. I had been working as a dive master for the past 10 years. Showing people to the marine life is my job and safety would be my top priority when its come to water sports. Paddle boarding is not too different to scuba diving, for me its about working out, while enjoying the nature and marine life. I had been doing paddle boarding since 5 years ago and coaching and touring people around with paddle board is my new passion. Iam a cerified rescue diver and an emergency first responder to prepare for the worst

Where you'll be

During this tour / paddling session, we will be paddling in the ocean which is in front of Kota Kinabalu city center. It will be a nice view viewing the city from the sea. Even the famous Kinabalu mountain can be seen when the weather is good. We will be snorkeling at the snorkeling point or at the coral point to see amazing corals beneath the sea. If we are lucky, turtles and several type of birds also can be seen

조의 영어는 충분히 알아들을 수 있을 정도여서 영어초급수준 한국인들은 크게 걱정하지 않아도 됩니다. 보트 관련 설명과 주의점을 이해하기 쉽게 충분히 알려줍니다. 보트에서 중심을 잃어 물에 빠지더라도 조를 도와주는 친구분들이 금방 다가와줘서 두려움없이 다시 올라탈수 있었어요. 개인적으로 스마트폰 챙기지 않아도 조가 알아서 인생샷 찍어 줍니다. 마실 물도 주기 때문에 바다에 나갈때는 아무것도 필요없어요. 아침에 빗방울이 떨어지며 날씨가 흐리더라도 금방 햇빛이 강해지니 뒤늦게 후회하지 말고 썬크림은 꼭 바르세요. 가능하면 긴팔 긴바지 래쉬가드가 필요하고 아쿠아슈즈도 신으세요. 니모 포인트에서 주황색줄무늬 니모를 볼 수 있게 알려주고 스노쿨링 장비도 줍니다. 보트 정거장이 중간에 있어서 충분히 쉬면서 이동할 수 있었고, 3시간동안 총 4km 를 개인보트 위에서 바다를 즐기며 매우 특별한 경험을 했습니다.
