Base Camp Paddleboard

Our Espíritu Santo Island Eco Camp offers comfortable amenities for a unique stand-up paddling expedition in a natural protected area. You customize your trip dates, length, itinerary, and level of difficulty. Using the camp as a base, choose each day's adventures as you paddle along diverse island coastlines where you can stop to hike, snorkel, and explore.

Our company founder Tim Means played a key role together with a supportive community in orchestrating the designation of Espíritu Santo Island group as a natural protected area. We hold the first and, to date, one of the very few minimum-impact base camp permits, and you may have neighbors down the beach including local school groups supporting ecology and conservation projectsa portion of the proceeds from your expedition goes to support this local programming.

This expedition is available from October to April. Perfect for families, active folks and groups, our base-camp-style expedition welcomes you to our Eco Camp in a cove in the protected waters of Espiritu Santo Island, the perfect place to master the basics of stand-up paddleboarding, or just paddle at your own pace. Your group can also design a trip for structured team-building, reflection, or just time with family and friends! Our flexible itinerary facilitates a variety of activities to match your interests and abilities in the boats, and can be as active or as relaxing as you choose. Enjoy delicious catered meals prepared with fresh local ingredients.
