FUN is our mission! Learn to stand up paddle in a calm bay and a lush river where you are greeted by sea turtles, fish, and peacocks. Along the way, our friendly instructors, all of whom are certified lifeguards, will teach you the skills to be confident stand up paddlers. We guarantee that you can stand up and that you'll have a great time with us. Come by yourself or with a group. All groups are private – we do not join you with strangers. Lessons are 2 hours and photos are available free of charge. We are available from sun-up to sun-down. We do not have set times; we go when it is convenient for you. If your time permits, come experience our spectacular Sunset Lesson. Ready for even more paddling fun? Join us for our astounding coastal adventure (come see the dolphins!)or our fitness paddle. Stand up paddling with Rainbow Watersports is an ideal activity for paddlers of all abilities, experience, and ages (4 and up). Come drink in our aloha spirit and enjoy what many visitors are calling “the best activity on the island”!

Heidi was a fantastic SUP instructor. She truly embodies the aloha spirit with her kind presence and great skill and knowledge of SUP and Hawaii. This was the best SUP lesson I've had in Hawaii - she not only taught us the basics, but some advanced tips and skills as well. Laying back and drifting down the Haleiwa river is... More

We took a private lesson with Erin at 9am! She was the nicest, most patient, and helpful instructor! We loved our 2hr paddle lesson up/down the river! We would definitely do it again! Mahalo!!

We booked via email onto the group paddle boarding lesson, for the last day of our holiday and we weren't disappointed. They were very responsive, emailing me back late at night. As it happened, after booking the group lesson to save money (we were staying at Turtle Bay resort and their lessons were rather expensive and unlikely to be in... More

I went with my parents, and Jodi was great! This was our first time, and she was very patient and encouraging. So friendly and helpful. She also captured great pictures of us during the lesson. Wonderful memories. I recommend! It was a lot of fun, and we want to go again!

This was our first time with SUP and our instructor Jodi was AMAZING!!! She was very patient with our group and really took the time to make sure we were all comfortable. I would definitely do this again and have probably found a new activity I can do at home.

We stayed at Honolulu, but were looking for some adventure outside the city. The team at Rainbow Watersports was easy to coordinate with; very flexible. Our instructor was great at teaching us what to do, and very friendly. Recommended!

My wife surprised me with a private lesson with Heidi at Rainbow Watersports for the two of us. It was the first time SUPing for both of us, and it was beyond amazing. Heidi made it easy to learn and we had a blast. We felt like old friends from the start, and by the end of the lesson we... More

Great first-time paddleboard lesson. Having both the river and beach areas to learn and practice in was nice. Paddling downstream in the calm river, upstream around bends with headwind, and in the ocean with a bit of current and wave motion offered different levels of challenge at the beginner level plus a little scenery. The instructors were all pleasant and... More
