Stand Up Paddle Rental Cabarete

ION CLUB Cabarete offers beginner courses, rentals and excursions and is well equipped with the FANATIC SUP Range in all sizes, from longboards to all-round to small wave boards.
The windless morning offers in the bay of Cabarete, right in front of the ION CLUB, dream conditions for stand up paddling in all its forms: from SUP fitness and yoga in the sheltered shallow water area in front of the center, to touring the reef belt 800 meters away to paddle surfing from clean breaking waves in the outer reef. 

A long-running favorite is our lagoon tour on SUP boards: the entrance to the nature reserve with views of the green mountains is directly opposite the ION CLUB center and offers a trip in untouched tropical nature with tons of ancient kaoba, mango and passion fruit trees, banana trees , Palm trees, mangroves and many species of birds, combined with a glimpse into the typical way of life on the shore, the mirror-smooth and crystal clear freshwater lagoon, living Dominicans.

A word about

ION CLUB Cabarete

"The most beautiful land that human eyes have seen"

This famous quote from Christopher Columbus when he discovered the island of Hispaniola in 1492 sums it up quite nicely we believe. Today Cabarete is a windsurfers and kitesurfers paradise, situated on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, about 40 km from Puerto Plata International Airport.

The kitesurf, windsurf and surf spot is fuelled by Tradewinds and Atlantic swells throughout the entire year. The Tradewinds are accelerated by a proximate mountain-range.  The spot was discovered by windsurfers and surfers in the early eighties.

Our ION CLUB Center at the Frontloop Restaurant is located in the western/downwind part of Cabarete bay and is our Homebase for Kitesurf and Windsurf activities. The second base is our ION CLUB Center at Plaza Caribwind, it is located in the eastern/upwind part of Cabarete bay. Here you find a more protected windsurfing area ideal for beginners and intermediates as well as for Stand up Paddling.

The two centers are 5 minutes walking distance away from each other.

 

BEST PERIODS

December, January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September

WIND

The wind is modest in the morning and gains strength at midday under the influence of the trade wind. The best wind conditions are in January–March and June–September. The offshore reef is about 600 meters off the beach and the flat water stretching inbetween is all that slalom enthusiasts could wish for. From May–October the wind blows mainly sideshore from the right at 4-5 Beaufort. From November–April it mainly blows cross-offshore from the right and is less constant, but instead wave freaks can ride down waves up to 4 meters high.

WAVES

From November to April , the conditions are perfect for intermediate wave riders and wave freaks. Upwind of the center there is a shallow water section where beginners and intermediates feel comfortable and the tuition conditions are excellent. Beginners and intermediates can practice close to the shore while more experienced windsurfers can conquer the waves on the reef.

HOW TO GET TO CABARETE ?

By plane to Aeropuerto Internacional de Gregorio Luperon

The first one is "Aeropuerto Internacional de Gregorio Luperon" in Puerto Plata on the North Coast of the island about 30 km west of Cabarete which is a 25 minute drive passing Sosua, 10 kms away from Cabarete. Taxi services are available at all times as well as car rental services with Avis, Hertz, Europcar, National and more. There are many Charter and regular flights coming in to Puerto Plata airport from Europe and worldwide.

By plane to Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas de Jose Francisco Pena Gomez

Secondly there is the international airport of Santo Domingo "Aeropuerto Internacional Las Americas de Jose Francisco Pena Gomez", in the capital on the southern coast of Dominican Republic, which is 150 km and 2 hours-drive on a Highway away from Santiago - the 2nd biggest city of the island in the Cibaovalley on the north coast - which again will lead to Cabarete over the northern chain of mountains on smaller roads in about 1,5 hours (110 kms). Transfer from Santo Domingo to Cabarete by car takes about 4 hours.
Taxi services such as car rentals like Avis, National, Hertz, Europcar are available at all times. Rented cars can be returned at the airport of Puerto Plata.

By plane to Aeropuerto International de Cibao in Santiago

The third Airport called Aeropuerto International de Cibao in Santiago, a good hour transfer to Cabarete. For guests travelling from the eastern European countries eg. Russia, Poland, Croatia, etc. it is recommended to take a connecting flight to the closest and most convenient airport in a European city first and then fly directly to Puerto Plata. Guests from South America have to travel via New York or Miami, USA or San Juan, Puerto Rico to catch a schedule flight from there to Puerto Plata or Santo Domingo. Generally we recommend to fly to Puerto Plata and not to Santo Domingo, because it's closer to Cabarete and therefore a lot more convenient.
