Upon request we also offer unforgettable cruises on sailing or power Yachts, and Fishing trips. Of course, Corporate and Group activities are also available.
Over the last 30 years, one rule has remained the same – «SAFETY IS OUR MAIN PRIORITY».
The history of the sport says that SUP evolved from surfing, when surfers started to use paddles to help them to cover long distances. The main advantage of a Stand Up Paddle, that anyone can do it on almost any kind of a watercourse: sea coasts, lakes, rivers and canals.
This new kind of activity took a start just in 2011 and quickly spread worldwide. Flyboard itself is a simple yet innovative device, which consists of a special board, attached with a long hose to the Jet Ski turbine and two hand stabilizers, thus allowing rider to fly above the surface of the water.
Wakeboarding is a combination of snowboarding, waterskiing, skateboarding and surfing. In the past, on flat, swell-less days, surfers would still try to get on the water by being towed with a ski rope behind a boat and, sometimes even from the shoreline by a truck. This eventually became a unique new sport which we now know as wakeboarding
During the 1950’s surfers began to experiment by trying to surf behind the boat wake. Soon after, the sport of wakesurfing was born. There’s no need to travel to Hawaii if you want to experience the thrill of surfing. Get behind our boat and surf the endless wave that is its wake.
Waterskiing is one of the oldest Watersports invented. At Crest we offer waterskiing on two skis and a single ski. Many people think this is a difficult sport which isn’t for everyone, but we are proving these people wrong every day by teaching people to ski in a single lesson.
Windsurfing was born when surfing and sailing. Being accessible only by a small group of enthusiasts back in the day, windsurfing has grown into a world known trend sport nowadays and has become a fun way to enjoy your time on the water.
For ultra all inclusive guests one beginner kit is available free of charge. Previous experience needed.
A kiteboarder uses the power of the wind with a large controllable power kite to be propelled across the water on a kiteboard similar to a wakeboard or a small surfboard. Riders can do high jumps, various freestyle tricks, enjoy waves or just cruise freeriding.
Riding a Hobie Cat is a fast and easy way to get a glimpse of what real sailing is all about. If you have never set foot on deck before, our instructors will be more than happy to provide you with all the essential techniques, rules and safety instructions.
