We avoid the crowds! We meet and begin at the Kinabalu Yacht Club (KYC), at Kota Kinabalu's main beach, Tanjung Aru. We start with some basic instruction on the beach, before heading out to the nearby floating pontoon, clownfish (Nemo!) field, coral bar or sand bar, depending on the tide and weather conditions. This Discovery Tour lasts between 2 and 3 hours, depending on weather and your fitness level, and is available from 7am to 7pm. The sunset session starts at 4:30pm but usually does not include the snorkeling part, due to usually rougher seas and higher tide levels. The morning session (starting at 8am) generally enjoys the best weather (and flattest seas), which means we can then also discover the area best and do a bit of snorkeling (clownfish colony) around the sand and coral bars. This SUP package includes board, paddle, snorkeling mask, safety equipment, numerous GoPro action photos and videos, and a post-paddle drink.
It's not what you own, it's what you do. Experience paddleboarding in Kota Kinabalu with me. I have a keen interest in Borneo's beaches, seas, islands and rivers, and over 5 years of exploring this beautiful corner of the world on my Stand Up Paddle. I am now sharing my experience and knowledge with visitors, young and old, in a safe environment, just a few minutes from central Kota Kinabalu. Chinese speaking paddlers also welcome. We have, when needed, a Chinese translator on board. "欢迎中国桨手！我们有中文翻译员协助
