About Borneo Paddle Monkeys

 Stand Up Paddling. Pure and Simple.

Experience paddleboarding in tropical Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysian Borneo,

with Nick and his Borneo Paddle Monkeys team, the paddling specialists.

Nick has been exploring Sabah's beaches, seas, islands and rivers for the past 7 years on his Stand Up Paddle board. He and his team are now sharing their experience and knowledge with their guests, young and old, in a safe environment, just a few minutes from central Kota Kinabalu, away from the city's hustle and bustle.                                     WhatsApp us directly at 0178172001 for booking and to check dates availabilities for your next session with us.



Stand Up Paddling is for everyone.

Borneo Paddle Monkeys caters to people of all abilities and ages. 

We have had 6-year olds paddling well with us, and several grandmas (and a 75 year old grandpa). 

If you are a first-time paddler, we recommend the morning session, as the weather is then usually best. 

Or, if you don't mind waking up really early to catch that worm, go for the sunrise session.

We usually paddle to our local sandbar and, weather permitting, push on to our secret clownfish (Nemo!) field for a touch of snorkeling in this truly magical place. So bring your own swim goggles (or diving mask) if you have any (if you don't, we'll get some for you, no stress).               

All our sessions include GoPro photos and videos of you in action.

See you soon on the water! 

And don't forget to also check us out on Facebook, Instagram and Google Maps to learn more about the Borneo Paddle Monkeys experience.

The Morning session generally enjoys the best weather (sunny) and sea conditions (flat), and is highly recommended for first-time paddlers.  Also, that time of the day usually offers the best light for some possible additional snorkeling and photo taking (weather permitting).  Morning sessions usually start at 8am.

If what you really really want is photos of you paddling in the sunset, then book the Evening paddle.  That session starts at 5pm, and can indeed be magical, if the sun and weather cooperate, which is never guaranteed...

The Sunrise session is for the early birds. We start at dawn, around 5:30am, and finish around 8am. The route is similar to the morning session.  The main difference is that the first light can be magical and makes for unique photos.  Also, the sunrise session is a favorite of those who wish to limit their sun exposure.
