Meet the SUP Tours Philippines’ Team!
“Stand-up paddleboarding has changed the way we travel the Philippines. It has taken us to beautiful, remote places not accessible by roads. Aside from that, it is so much fun and peaceful to stroll in the water. It’s so easy to do and it keeps us fit. We like it because it has a low-impact to the environment. We take a lot of pictures but the experience is always priceless that you can’t capture in photographs.”

“Stand-up paddleboarding for me is a way to feel free and get away from the busy and fast life that we live. It relaxes my mind and gives me a good body work out without any chance of injuries. I fell in love with the sport because it can bring you to places where most people have never been and enjoy it in harmony with nature.”
