What you'll do

What's better than paddleboarding on the Caribbean Sea? Doing it at sunrise! We literally invented the Sunrise Session and been doing it almost dail since 2015. You can join our daily sunrise groups even if you have never done it before. It's not that hard and we'll make sure you're always safe and have an amazing time. As a bonus we we take, edit and share your awesome sunrise photos for free. We will meet on the beach on calle 6 in Playa del Carmen center, at a s named Fusion Beach Bar Cuisine. Here you can store your belongings and there is a bathroom available. You will be given a basic introduction to standup paddleboarding if you have never done it before. After this instruction we go together with the other participants (club members, locals) on the sea with our boards to paddle towards a (hopefully beautiful) rising sun. You will be accompanied by either me or one of the other awesome guides, so as a first timer especially you don't need to worry about safety. Depending on the weather there is a change to swim, sometimes we'll see wild life like dolphins or turtles. Of course we can't guarantee how the weather will be, but whatever the circumstances, it will always be an unforgettable experience.

He, how nice you're reading this :) Ok so 9 years ago I decided to leave my beautiful home town of Amsterdam and move to Playa del Carmen. My main reason was that I wanted to be near the beautiful Caribbean Sea which I fell in love with already 20 years ago. First I ended up falling in love and having a baby girl with a pretty Mexican lady who is now my wife. I learned scuba diving, freediving, I became a certified Yoga teacher and eventually I fell in love with surfing and paddleboarding. I got certified in that as well and I am now running the only official paddleboard school in Playa del Carmen. We have a beautiful community with various guides and instructors plus almost a 1000 club members who come paddleboarding regularly. We are located at an amazing and super laidback beach club right in the center. I hope to see you here soon!

Communication was amazing for this experience! This was my first time paddle boarding and they were really thorough with explaining everything prior to getting into the water. I really appreciate them checking in on me to make sure I was ok. If you are apprehensive about taking this experience, just take the leap and go for it! You will not be disappointed. The view is beautiful and you are in good hands :)

It was a magical experience to see the sunrise. Calm clear blue waters. A great group of people. Very clear instructions. Just a wonderful way to start the day.

It was a very nice trip! The tour leads were constantly checking on us newbies to ensure we were comfortable, safe and enjoying the trip. They moved around to get awesome pictures of the tour participants that will be for sure in some social networks.

This was a great experience and worth making the effort to get up early. Yes there was some seaweed around but there was only a little on the beach nearby and it was not a problem at all.
