Paddleboard & Kayak Adventure with students from California State University, San Bernardino

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words.

The story of this adventure is best told in pictures - so here follows lots of photos. We ask for your patience in waiting for them to download. There is a bit of text with explanations where we considered it helpful.


All fourteen students from San Bernardino enjoy the calm water of the Caribbean Sea after paddleboarding and kayaking to this deserted beach near Silver Sands Jamaica.

This is how the adventure began. A little after 5:00 am, Bryan gathered the group on the beach and provided basic instructions for paddleboarding and kayaking. Life jackets donned and equipment sorted, then the students were ready to go. The sun smiled sweetly as it illuminated the Caribbean Sea.

A paddleboard turned over became a table. No picnic breakfast is complete without fruits.


DJ suddenly became very popular.
