We LOVED stand up paddle boarding 2 years ago and made sure to book private surf lessons for our Family this vacation to Hawaii. Heidi at Rainbow Watersports has gone above and beyond and she is so fun and amazing to talk to. She knows the island & was so great to reccomend all the best spots to catch waves for surfing and all the best spots to see turtles on the stand up paddle boards. You MUST book a tour with her!! We surfed with Dom and he was AWESOME!!

Glow SUP reservation initially had a minor hiccup, however, Heidi was amazing and made it up to us!!!

This was my 2nd time with Rainbow Watersports. The last time I went on a sunrise SUP tour so this time I wanted to switch it up and try the glow tour. Both were very relaxing lead by fantastic guides. Each tour I've had the pleasure of viewing beautiful scenery and wildlife.

We decided to return the day after our glow SUP tour for a 1 hr kayak trip to try and locate the sea turtles and manta ray in the daytime. We saw about 7 turtles and 1-2 manta rays.

You can't go wrong with Rainbow Watersports adventures. This is a must do on the North Shore of Oahu!

My husband and I had such a beautiful experience paddleboarding on the river in Haleiwa! It was definitely one of our favorite experiences while on our vacation in Oahu. We even got to see a green turtle pop his head out if the water and look at us! Rainbow Watersports is easy to book with, affordable, they have very friendly service, and gave us tips and advice since we are new to this! I was grateful for that. Thank you for a beautiful day!

My family of 6, ages 12-50, really enjoyed the glow paddle boarding. We saw tons of turtles, felt comfortable on the boards despite being novices, and the light up boards were a real treat. Heidi and Kezia were phenomenal guides. Highly recommended.

This is a small business with people who are kind and go the extra mile. My car was broken down and Heidi ran (literally) across town to get a jump cord. It really says something how they took care of a stranger like myself at such a busy time as they were getting gear ready. What wonderful, friendly people who help others with enthusiasm and positivity. I can’t recommend them more!

We had a great time renting kayaks to go up the river. The access to the van on the beach was easy to find and the staff was all really friendly and helpful. We had some issues with reservations, but Heidi was great and helpful. Would definitely recommend!

We rented kayaks for three of us and had a fabulous morning exploring the water around Haleiwa. Heidi gave is great advice about paddling, currents, and where to go. We first set out to sea to watch the spinner dolphins, then we explored up Anahulu Stream and saw too many turtles to count. If we can't purchase our own kayaks soon, we'll definitely be renting from Rainbow Watersports again!

My fiancé and I rented 2 paddle boards to paddle down the river in Haleiwa. We had a fantastic time! The company made the rental process incredibly easy. Would highly recommend to anybody visiting Haleiwa!

This was our second time renting from Rainbow Watersports. For our first time we had a group lesson and tour, but this time we rented boards and headed out for our own adventure. We are so impressed by the helpful and friendly way they treated us both times.

Thank you! There has been a lot of turtles in the bay and up the river recently and were glad you were able to see some.
