I was visiting the area without my own kite gear and went out with Troy for a "Sitter Session," where you basically ride on your own but with oTHErside gear. It was great!! Super conditions all around. Can highly recommend!

We took a two hour paddle board excursion. We were able to see a bit of the sea life, sponges, jellyfish, a few small fish and nurse sharks. Our guide, Holly, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable.
