This Ocean Paddle is a great way to explore the bay out to Las Islas Tres Hermanas and then back to Playa Arco to explore the caves on the beach there. The paddle out to the Islands from Playa Ballena is about 45 minutes, where we take in the views of the three islands and even try to do some snorkeling there. After we rest for a little, we paddle over to one of the most incredible beaches around, Playa Arco. This beautiful and secluded beach is only accessible by a long hike or by boat/kayak/SUP. At low tide, there are two tunnel caves on the beach that we can explore.
THIS TOUR IS VERY AFFECTED BY THE WAVES! If there is a swell, we cannot do the tour. We take your safety seriously and want you to enjoy yourselves! Also, the snorkel conditions vary due to the swells and weather. We will always give it a shot and try to snorkel but we cannot predict the conditions until we are out there.
CHANCE TO SEE: Sea Turtles, Pelicans, Frigatebirds, Shore Birds, Toucans, Monkeys, and on the very rare occasions, we have seen dolphins and whales.
