This is one of those “when are you going to get a chance to do something like this again” kind of experiences. After a quick stand-up paddleboard instruction, you and a rescue dog will hop on and cruise through the calm waters by San Souci Beach.
You’ll meet Phoenix, the lead SUPDog, and her well-behaved puppy friends who love people and swimming. They may even hop in the water, swimming from board to board.
Enjoy the views of Diamond Head and Kapiolani Park. This is a laid back, one-of-a-kind experience for anyone who loves dogs.

DID YOU KNOW?
Owner Tyler is also a sponsored dog surfer with the Calvin & Susie Hawaii Animal Foundation and competes in dog surfing contests.
Tyler rescued a puppy in the middle of the Arizona desert. He named her Phoenix and they became inseparable. Tyler worked at a SUP shop in Honolulu but hated leaving his dog at home so he started bringing her to work and into the ocean. This is how SUPDog Hawaii came about. [Check out this adorable video about how Tyler and Phoenix met.]
