Water Sports

Kayak, wind board, and paddle board usage is free for guests staying at Casa Kootenay. They are available weather permitting and when the main house is open. The Hostess will set you up with the desired equipment and is available for rescue if needed.

We offer a mangrove tour for our guests that kayak.  The Rescue boat will tow the kayak and take you to the other side of the bay so you can take the kayak and enjoy the mangroves. You will kayak your return.

After a tasty breakfast, my daughter and I paddled stand up paddle boards across the flat water of the Mogote. We were greeted by two dolphins curious to see us! Kirk Miller Dec 2012
