Need to know
After a lesson on land, you’ll be ready to travel up the Anahulu River on a stand-up paddleboard. The water stays calm in the river.
The private, 2 hour session along calm waters takes place at sunset, with the sky turning pink and purple around you. Sunset is the best time to see Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles because they’re heading back up the river. You’ll spot turtles, fish, and a coral reef below.
Hosts Heidi and Nate will point out plants and marine life along the way and tell you all about them.
They’ll take photos of you throughout the session and send them to your phone. You really can’t beat the view from your paddleboard.
Must wear face covering.
Plan to socially distance. When you meet your hosts and other guests, please don’t shake hands. Try a no-contact greeting instead.
