Thanks Craig for the Review. It was my pleasure to taking Julie and yourself Stand Up Paddling into the Stary night. That Meteor/shooting star that we saw that night over Pigeon Point was really special. Happy we could have seen it together. Next time you are over we have to go on another Stand Up Paddle Adventure.
Keep smiling.

“Awesome Saturday night out!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Duane took us on his Bioluminescence tour around the mangroves by moonlight and it was totally magical! The glowing plankton were stunning and paddling back with just the moon and stars and the rippling of our paddles in the water has to be one of the rarest and close to nature experiences you can have anywhere in the world these days. Duane is full of information, enthusiasm and passion for his beautiful homeland. An amazing insight into a little known snapshot of Tobago which we felt very privileged to see and will treasure for a very long time.

“Unbelievable experience!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Our family of 5 (3 boys ages 16, 13 & 10) arrived on Tobago for spring break and the first night here we did the SUP bioluminescence night tour. Wow! We've traveled a lot as a family and done some neat things, but this is right at the top of the list. Truly amazing! I had emailed Duane before our arrival and he was very responsive and helpful in planning our SUP trip. He was equally great in person and did a super job leading our tour. Very knowledgable and considerate of all the levels of SUP folks on the tour. Our family can SUP so we were able to just enjoy the trip. The bioluminescent plankton really must be seen to be believed. I could try to describe them here, but words truly fall short. Just do the tour and experience it first hand with this great SUP tour company. It is a memory none of us will forget.

“Learn a new skill in paradise!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

If you are wondering what to do when you get a bit bored of just sitting on the beach - do this! My sister and I decided to try SUP for the first time on a bit of a whim and couldn't have picked a better activity. Duane was patient and funny and before we knew it our time had flown by. We were buzzing by the end of our lesson. If we'd had more time we would have definitely gone out again.

Thanks for the great review. It was lots of fun taking you ladies out for a stand up paddle lesson. Next time your in Tobago you have to come for a Bioluminescence Tour or a stand up paddle surf lesson. We have lots of cool Stand Up Paddle excursions to keep you ladies happy in the water.

“Glowing above and below”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Recently my friend and I did the nocturnal bioluminesence tour with Duane. We opted for a two-seater kayak rather than stand up paddles (you can use either). This tour is done near the new moon when the skies are dark so it is easier to see the bioluminescent organisms in the water. In all we were out in the water for about two hours, kayaking along with another couple in a two-seater and Duane on a stand up paddle. The journey took us out to the lagoon where the water is as still and flat as glass. At that time the sky was darker, so we started seeing the glowing effects in the water. I would imagine that the amount of bio activity varies at different times. It is magical ... These beings creating a sparkling world in what we would otherwise simply see as "water".

Being out in the lagoon is extremely peaceful and meditative. My friend and I remained silent, soaking in the vastness and relaxing in the kayak while the others swam and chatted. Look down and you see glowing sparks in the water as you swish your hand or paddle...or look up and see the stars unimpeded by light pollution.

Duane is very knowledgeable and professional and it is clear that he wants everyone to have a good experience.

Since doing this I have recommended it to people who have asked what there is that's "different" to do in Tobago. It is one of the few one-of-a-kind leisure options.

Thanks for the great review guys. It was a pleasure having you both on the Bioluminescence Tour, and appreciate the recommendation to your clients. We can't do this without your help! Looking forward to the chance to come and spend some time in Buccoo when things slow down after summer.
Keep smiling.
