Water Sports

John’s Place is very fortunate to have the most amazing beach, lagoon and reef right at your doorstep! The water will draw you in one way or another !!


SUP

We have 2 x 2018 model, 10’2 NSP stand up paddle boards for you to use at your leisure. We do not promote SUP’s in the line up but definitely encourage you to paddle around the foreshore, play on them with the kids and for the little more adventurous you can take them for a paddle around the pristine estuary. On high tide this waterway has allot to explore.

Snorkelling

Snorkelling

Snorkelling is a must! The visibility is fantastic in the Mentawais. Float along in front of John’s Place and there is a small reef that will entertain the kids for hours. When you are comfortable, Cahn will take you to some great spots with coral and all manner of reef fish and sea life. Devils island is a favourite and only 5 minutes from John’s Place! Most surf spots we go to have good snorkelling nearby too. It is advised to bring your own snorkelling gear for the best fit.


Fishing

Like anywhere the fishing can be hot and cold, however there are often nice pelagic fish like Spanish Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Rainbow Runner and Trevally. Dawn and Dusk are usually the best times for fishing and our captain will do his best to put you on the fish! If you are a keen fisherman it is advised to bring your own gear.
