Meet us at a local restraunt along the bank of the historical Thu Bon River. There I will run through a basic skills demonstration and run through of the equipment we will be using and the local conditions for that day. Hit the water and paddle towards the mouth of the river encountering many locals using traditional fishing techniques and weaving our way through the many traditional crab and ocean fishing boats that find safe harbor in the river during the day. From there we will continue down into the beautifully serene Nipa Palm forest and weave our way through the stunning mangrove streams. These are only accessible at certain times due to the fast changing tides which I have spent many months learning. All the while I will take plenty of photos as we pass through many tight tributaries unaccessible by any other boats or watercraft. Once finished in the forest we will return upstream to our launch location and enjoy a light meal of various local foods and a well deserved drink! (We can help orginise transport upon request!)
After years feeling unfulfilled in my legal studies I came to Asia to explore the world at my doorstep. What I found was a deep love and connection to the beautiful lantern lit town of Hoi An. Attempting to bring my hobbies and professional life into one I worked as a paddleboarding instructor for a large hostel chain throughout Vietnam but felt that my passion for the sport and my environment far exceeded the limitations of a large corporation. After a lot of hard work I was able to start Drifters Paddle Co and have since been able to turn my hobby and passion of paddleboarding and hospitality into my work and have spent the years following exploring the endless breathtaking rivers, streams and coastline Hoi An has to offer and have never looked back!

While Paddleboarding is a very accessible watersport that is very suited to beginners. Guests should keep in mind that it does still require some physical effort and fitness similar to kayaking. Guests should also have basic swimming ability such as ability to stay afloat if they are to fall.
