Overview
What to Expect
Itinerary

We will travel along Haleiwa Bay and up the Anahulu stream, home of the Green Hawaiian Sea Turtles. Although we cannot guarantee turtle sightings, it is very common to see turtles along the way. You will learn how to stand up paddle like a pro; whatever your experience level, we'll help you increase your stand up paddle ability. You'll also learn about Hawaiian fauna and its uses, and the uniqueness of historic Haleiwa town.

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 Operation Underground Railroad to help rescue children from sex slavery.

Our school, Rainbow Watersports, has been recognized in several media, including Rachel Raye's Every Day, Lifestrong, Huffington Post, Concierge, and more. We've been awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence for 5 years straight, and have a 5-star rating on Yelp.

Our instructors LOVE stand up paddling, connecting with guests, and having a good time. We are all certified lifeguards. Many paddlers have said this is the best part of their vacation; make it a part of yours!

Melinda, thank you so much! Lucky for you to get a private *group* lesson! Our goal isn’t to help you feel confident as a paddler - and you took it to the next level with SUP yoga- awesome!

Kezia was a great guide and the scenery was awesome. I felt really confident on my board by the time we returned to shore. These guys were great from first booking until I left, knowledgeable about their environment and supporting good causes through their boarding company. 👍👍

Hi Tracy! Thanks for the great review! One of our goals is to help you become a confidential paddler; I’m glad we succeeded and hope you have many more times to paddle in NZ. Although we can’t guarantee turtles, it’s very common to see them. I’m sorry they weren’t visible that day!
