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”!

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!

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

Heidi worked with our family of 8 and gave us an unforgettable experience! Our son was very apprehensive and she did everything in her power to help him feel comfortable. We got individualized instruction and had a fantastic day!

Aloha! The ocean can be so much fun when we are all safe first, then the happiness becomes infectious! Our instructors make sure to instruct everyone down to the T about our route and even how to fall off the board correctly. More
