Birdwatching Boat Tour

Stand Up Paddle Surf
This emerging global sport is like walking on water. Unlike surfing, Stand Up Paddle Surf is very easy to learn, but provides a good core workout. Within one hour the instructor will make you feel comfortable on your board and you’ll enjoy being out on the ocean!
This tour begins with a 45-minute hike that involves crossing a creek a half dozen times, traversing a cattle farm and weaving through a primary canopy of tropical dry forest. Stop along the way to discover the sights, sound and smell of everything around you before discovering a series of brilliant swimming holes and small waterfalls, each cascading from one to another.
Starting from the “boca” (river mouth) you will glide in our boat alongside the gorgeous wildlife of two complete different river:
The Rio Nosara is a wide open river with a great variety of flora and fauna such as many different and colorful bird species like herons, kingfisher, parrots, roseate spoonbill, trogons, motmot and many other plus crocodiles, iguanas, basilisk, monkeys, squirrels, crabs, butterflies, spiders, and last, but not least, a great abundance of plants like Guanacaste, Ceiba, beach hibiscus, rain tree, and coral shower tree.
River Stand Up Paddle

There is a reason this is our most popular tour – paddle, find out why. Our step-specific instruction makes the SUP touring session accessible for everyone. For seasoned paddle surfers and those who are a bit more comfortable in the water and think they’d like to learn, we can always tweak our instruction to ensure you’ll be up and riding on the wave that never ends.
