If you prefer your fun more vertical than horizontal, then why not try Stand Up Paddle-boarding, regularly organised by Gozo Fun. Stand Up Paddle-boarding, often called ‘SUP’ is another amazing eco-friendly way to sightsee from the sea!
During the summer our waters are usually tranquil and clear and so travelling across them is like paddling over a clear large lake.
Mamo from Gozo Fun says: “SUP is a great way to explore Gozo because you can easily access caves and gulleys which would be difficult to reach otherwise. It’s a brilliant activity for families with children aged 10 years and upwards because the youngsters totally love the freedom of being on the water. In fact, its been so popular we are starting a summer camp this year.”
Gozo Fun often base themselves out of Dwejra, Ħondoq Bay and even paddle over to Comino. They regularly teach beginners and say youngsters can adapt to paddle-boarding quicker than their parents because the technique is more to do with balance than physical strength. They have recently introduced sunset SUP trips over to Comino which includes camping on the island overnight. They even have a Giant SUP which can accommodate a whole family, so you can all get on the same board and paddle together.
