Originally we wanted to do the 1pm tour the next day. But Socrates asked us if we also spontaneously wanted to do the 6 p.m. Sunset Sunset Tour on the current day, since strong winds were announced for the next day. Luckily we were so spontaneous. The Sunset Tour was an incredibly beautiful experience and Socrates was a great guide. Very nice and personable, got us perfectly acquainted with the equipment and gave us a lot of information about the history of Lazaretta. Highly recommended, we would do the tour again and again. 5 stars are actually not enough as a rating.

Socrates is an amazing instructor and will guide you through the art of paddle boating (keeping the balance while standing is much more challenging than it seems). I sincerely recommend the evening session - you get to learn paddle boating and enjoy the spectacular views simultaneously. Definitely, a must-have experience for all on-water activities fans.

Vertsskapet om bord var helt topp. Blide, positive og engasjerte i gjestene sine. Vi var en vennegjeng på 12 som hadde en helt fantastisk opplevelse på havet. Tiden ble brukt godt, vertene hadde mye kunnskap om historien i området.

Our tour guide Socrates made this a fantastic tour!! He was so patient with everything and was very very knowledgeable about SUP and the area!! The trip is not something we will forget quickly!

Sunset SUP with Sup n’ Blue: Very cool experience with a friendly and considerate instructor.
