All the information about your tour
Breakdown of activity
The first thing that we will do when you arrive at the pier will be to explain what the tour is and what you can expect to experience. Then, we will do a ground briefing in which we will teach you how to paddle and how to move properly in a paddle surf board.
If you are a group or you hired a guide, we will explain the history of Seville during the tour, the history of Spanish navigation and navigators, the Golden Age, the circumnavigation of Magellan and Sebastian Elcano, the Indian race, among other unique historical facts.
We also compile a photo album for group tours and particular tour with hired guide.
It is a really nice experience, very refreshing in the summer, and very enjoyable. We adapt to each group and even do games with more active groups.
In the “baptism” you will learn…
You will learn how to run beginners or professionals paddle surf boards. Paddling techniques, how to control the boat (turn, move rapidly, etc.). You will also learn navigation safety signals, safety training and how to help other paddlers without touching the water. We will teach you the navigation rules necessary to cross the waters of the Guadalquivir river.
With the guide (group guide or hired guide) you will learn the History of Seville such as the circumnavigation of Magalllanes and Juan Sebastián Elcano, the route to Indies, the attacks of the Drakens Vikings in Seville, and other parts of the enormous History of navigation linked to the river of Seville during the Spanish Golden Age.
Stand up paddling is for…
The activity is designed for all audiences. It is a basic activity, it is not necessary to be in good shape or have special physical conditions as it is simpler, easier and more fun than riding a bicycle. In many ways the stand up paddle resembles a water bike.
Children under 10 years old can carry out the activity accompanied by an adult in a beginner paddle board, where the child always sits in front.
You can come alone or with friends. If you come alone, you can join the group of people on the next tour and form part of their group (maximum 25 people). The more the merrier!
We have a team of instructors trained in water activities, who are always prepared and accompany you on your tour of the Guadalquivir while you enjoy the beautiful sights of this amazing city.

Our stand up paddle boards are for all levels: initiation, medium and advanced. You can use the board you feel comfortable with. We provide you with all the necessary equipment: paddles, life jackets and insurance.
If you are a group, we will shot photos during the tour and create a photo album for you so that you have a souvenir of the tour. In case of a private tour, the photos are included with the guide (available for hire).
