Turtle's Paddle Adventures offers Stand Up Paddle (SUP) lessons on the Island of Oahu at two of the MOST SPECTACULAR locations in Hawaii. Both are just a short and beautiful 45 minute drive into the Hawaiian countryside from Waikiki. Kahana Bay is known as one of Hawaii's best kept secrets. It is here that you will begin your paddle adventure with us. Our lessons last for 2 EXCITING, FUN FILLED hours and begin with a short land lesson. Then we hit the water, launching in the CALM, FLAT stream where the instructor will continue to teach you different stroke techniques, stances, and turns while we tour the GORGEOUS stream leading into the jungle 3/4 of a mile toward the mountains... going around several bends in the stream, and ducking under tree branches. The session will end with us paddling out into the bay and landing back on the beach at the parking lot where we met. We have now opened a new location at the historic Haleiwa Beach Park on the north shore. This location also starts out on calm, flat water on the Ana Hulu Stream and ends in the bay. This location has many green sea turtles to paddle with. You will paddle under the famous double rainbow bridge that has been in many movies. Haleiwa also has a spectacular sunset which makes for an awesome sunset paddle. We are super stoked to spread our passion for stand up paddling, and look forward to seeing you soon! Please see our website to submit your stand up paddle lesson and tour request forms. Mahalo nui loa and aloha!

This is why we feel Kahana is the best location for paddling on Oahu. The jungle is absolutely amazing and this location is the only spot on Oahu that is like that. So happy you guys enjoyed your lesson & tour with Doug.

Had a BLAST! This is a "must do" activity. Doug is great and made our experience memorable. If Doug can teach me to SUP he can teach anyone.
