It took months of planning but the TISUP pilot project with Asia Outdoors is now live. They are the first outfit to offer stand up paddleboarding lessons and tours in Lan Ha Bay, giving group lessons and tours around the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Cat Ba Archipelago.
This project coincides with the release of the new Asia Outdoors website. AO staff are being trained up in the ways of SUP and the sport continues to be one of the fastest growing activities globally.
"Cat Ba archipelago bears the exceptional natural values with its tropical forests covering the limestone system and the mangrove wetlands. These vegetation layers form spectacular and scenic landscapes and make the site home of all Vietnam's typical ecosystems." -UNESCO
We get a different perspective on the boards and are able to see under the surface quite a bit easier. We see massive jelly fish, schools of fish, colorful coral and all sorts of marine life on a regular basis. Cat Ba is also home to one of the worlds most elusive and endangered primates, the Cat Ba Langur. We regularly visit the habitats of these beautiful animals and occasionally get glimpses of their aerial maneuvers while jumping from tree to tree and their charismatic faces poking out of the lush canopy.
