What you'll do

We begin with a short lesson on land on the basics of stand up paddling, then go over special techniques designed to help you paddle like a pro. This time of day is ideal for spotting turtles underneath your board that are heading back up the river to rest.

After traveling up part of the Anahulu Stream, we paddle along a beautiful, calm bay as the sun sets over the ocean. As the sun fades into the horizon, your board lights up, creating a halo of light that illuminates the ocean floor. It is a magical, zen-like experience to be on the water away from life on land, and in the quiet of the night. You may even see sea turtles or reef fish swim underneath your board! Enjoy the peacefulness of the water during twilight and as stars begin to shine overhead. Come by yourself, or bring a group. It's a perfect mix of fun and zen!

Other things to note
Ideal for novice and experienced paddlers alike. Children 7+ welcome. Though we cannot guarantee sea life viewing, we often see reef fish or turtles in the halo of light underneath our boards. With the right conditions, we will also enjoy stargazing into the night sky.

Where you'll be

Stand up paddle in the home of the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Expect to see some during your paddle! Our location is one of the best places to enjoy a stunning North Shore sunset. Because of our unique location on the North Shore, we can paddle on calm water year round. We are also in a dark area that is graced by spectacular starry nights and a view of the Milky Way.

This was an awesome experience. Heidi was communicative and kept us on the loop the entire time. This was our first-time paddle boarding and Megan, our instructor, made us feel confident, gave clear instructions, and introduced us to the area with the turtles and all. We paddle boarded from sunset till the moon was up and it was magical.

What a great event! The water was calm, Michael was an awesome guide and we even took some time to just lay in the ocean and star gaze!

wowww this was so cool! I wish it lasted longer. Mike was so funny and down to earth, and also well-travelled ! I really loved this experience so much and it really helped my phobia of being in water ! I 1000% would do it again.

Overall amazing experience! The instructors we’re extremely helpful and made the experience very enjoyable, the glow under the boards made the adventure that much better. We saw turtles and fish and the paddle ride up the river was breathe taking. Definitely recommend to anyone

My friends and I went paddleboarding tonight. It was a pretty amazing experience! This was our first time ever paddleboarding. Megan was our instructor and she was just the greatest. If you decide to do this you will definitely not regret it!!! Ask for Megan, she was just super amazing!! We had a blast!

Just got back from the night glow paddle: I'm a pretty experienced paddler and my husband always tags along- he thinks he's still a beginner but he's a little more than that ;) It was easy peasy paddling in the ocean and river: weather and waves were perfect and didn't complicate anything. We saw the sunset, shooting stars, turtles and ended with a rad free float laying on our backs, holding hands watching the stars, as the waves slowly pushed us in. This was fun and easy, even for beginners I think it may be a slight challenge, but fun all the same. Our captain was patient, gave a great safety and paddle basics lesson on the beach before we went in, then he kept a slow pace so we could all keep up without constantly having to paddle (lots of nice coasting, gliding time to sight see). I loved it and highly recommend it for paddle board lovers!
