NORTH CAICOS Downwinder
(Full day trip…$1,100…max 4 riders)
Downwinder from North Caicos to The Lagoon or Long Bay (boat supported; advanced riders).
This trip is certain to go down as the highlight of your vacation. We start off with a 35 minute boat ride from Long Bay to ‘The flats’ at North Caicos. The boat ride alone is epic… passing by 6 other uninhabited islands and to a spot that is miles from civilization.
We pump up on a flat and ‘warm up’ by kiting around the mangroves. Some kiters decide to spend the remainder of the day here… its that pristine. Should you want to kite downwind, the true adventure begins. The entire trip is through relatively shallow water, mostly less than waist deep. We will pass by small lemon sharks, countless bonefish, mangrove islands and hidden bays finally arriving 8 miles away at ‘The Lagoon’. Stop here. Ride the lagoon. Continue to Long Bay…. Its your choice. The guide and boat will follow you for guidance and safety.
CONCH RUNNER Downwinder
(1/2 day trip….$700… max 4 riders)
Downwinder from Long Bay to Turtle Tail or Boogaloos. (boat supported; intermediate to advanced riders; 3 or 7 miles; 1.5 – 2hrs)
