Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

Experience hosted by Nick

3 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 7 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We start with a basic refresher/safety instruction on the beach, before heading out to the nearby bamboo pontoon, coral bar, sand bar, floating village, nearby islands, or clownfish field, depending on the tide and weather. The start is from the Kinabalu Yacht Club, at Kota Kinabalu's main beach, Tanjung Aru. This experience lasts between 2 and 3 hours, and is available from 7am to 7pm. You just need to pick your starting time. The 5 to 7pm time slot also includes a free sunset, but keep in mind that the weather is generally nicer in the morning around this part of the world. This SUP package includes board, paddle, safety equipment, and numerous GoPro action photos.
Other things to note
The experience lasts between 2 and 3 hours. Pick your 3-hour time slot, between 7am and 7pm. This experience is not for beginners. If you are a first-time paddler, you may want to look at our other 'Stand Up and Paddle Borneo - Initiation' experience.

Where you'll be

Depending on weather and tide, we will be able to visit the nearby sand bar and coral bar, the Tanjung Aru floating village, and possibly also one of the islands of the nearby Marine Park. We also take snorkeling gear on board, in case we feel like checking out the corals and resident clownfish population there.

我们一家三口,女儿13岁,一起体验paddle。Nick教练帮助我们学会了一生都没有机会体验的paddle和surfing。面对大海的担心和恐惧顺利的克服了,我们一家在Nick的指导下,滑着paddle驶向海心,我们都成功到达海中心的休息木筏。我的心里非常激动,感激生命能如此挑战,大海母亲就这样轻松的接纳我们,我们放松荡漾在海面。感谢Nick的规范教学,给我们的勇气,学会了Paddle。由于浪大,接下来Nick教我们冲浪🏄🏻‍♀️,我们都很享受浮板冲浪的轻松惬意。感谢Nick的教学,如果有机会,我们还会再来。
