What you'll do

Begin your session with a brief lesson on land, then it's paddling time! Join a certified lifeguard, trained stand up paddle instructor on an experience you are guaranteed to love. Paddle across a beautiful calm bay and up a lush river, home of the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. These amazing creatures are very passive, and also very big (up to 500 lbs!) Though we cannot guarantee sightings, it is very common to see them. Your friendly instructor will teach you stand up paddling techniques and skills as you travel along, so you can paddle like a pro!

Your hosts

We, Rainbow Watersports, are the original stand up paddle school on Oahu's North Shore, making people happy for 11 years now. :) Come “Stand Up” for a great cause: A portion of our profits go toward Ourrescue.org to help rescue children from sex slavery. Rainbow Watersports has been highly recognized in Rachel Raye's Every Day, Lifestrong, Huffington Post, and Concierge.com. We've been awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for the last 6 years, and have 5-stars on Yelp. Heidi was featured in SUP Magazine as "one of the top 10 instructors for beginning stand up paddlers", and Nate wrote "The Stand Up Paddle Book". Your guide will be either Heidi, Andrew, Kezia, Christiana, Vivi, Molly, or Michael. Each guide is super friendly, loves stand up paddling and connecting with guests, and are certified lifeguards. Let's go have fun!

Where you'll be

Join us as we travel along Haleiwa's "Backyard", considered one of the most beautiful rivers on O'ahu. We travel under the iconic "Rainbow Bridge" down the Anahulu river. This was home to a native village that flourished along the riverbank prior to the introduction of westerners. Along with turtles, tilapia, rays, and occasionally ocean fish are also visible.
