Sunrise SUP Tour: Pirate Route

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect

The appointment is at The Yak Lake House, we welcome you with coffee ready. We use this time to make sure that everyone is ready to start.
The tour begins with an instruction on the fundamentals of SUP, learning to stand up, to fall without hurting yourself, the correct posture, how to row and turn, and other basic techniques to enjoy SUP.
The first place we visited during the tour is the amazing black cenote, the deepest part of the whole lagoon, where you can swim, snorkel or just sit on your board and listen to nature while waiting to see the sun rise on the other side of the horizon. A magical experience that we will make sure to save in photos for you.
After this, we will cross the lagoon to reach the pirate channel, the emblematic road that was used a long time ago by European pirates to attack the town of Bacalar, where you will marvel at its different shades of turquoise blue.
At the end of the tour, around 9:30 am, we will have a well-deserved full breakfast at the facilities of the Yak Lake House.
