About Turtle's Paddle Adventures
Turtle's Paddle Adventures offers Stand Up Paddle (SUP) lessons on the Island of Oahu at two of the MOST SPECTACULAR locations in Hawaii. Both are just a short and beautiful 45 minute drive into the Hawaiian countryside from Waikiki. Kahana Bay is known as one of Hawaii's best kept secrets. It is here that you will begin your paddle adventure with us. Our lessons last for 2 EXCITING, FUN FILLED hours and begin with a short land lesson. Then we hit the water, launching in the CALM, FLAT stream where the instructor will continue to teach you different stroke techniques, stances, and turns while we tour the GORGEOUS stream leading into the jungle 3/4 of a mile toward the mountains... going around several bends in the stream, and ducking under tree branches. The session will end with us paddling out into the bay and landing back on the beach at the parking lot where we met. We have now opened a new location at the historic Haleiwa Beach Park on the north shore. This location also starts out on calm, flat water on the Ana Hulu Stream and ends in the bay. This location has many green sea turtles to paddle with. You will paddle under the famous double rainbow bridge that has been in many movies. Haleiwa also has a spectacular sunset which makes for an awesome sunset paddle. We are super stoked to spread our passion for stand up paddling, and look forward to seeing you soon! Please see our website to submit your stand up paddle lesson and tour request forms. Mahalo nui loa and aloha!

This was the first stand up paddle boarding experience for my kids, ages 15 and 11. Doug was a great instructor, very patient and informative. He put them at ease and in no time, they were up and paddling with confidence. The river is very calm and is a perfect spot for beginners. The scenery is stunning! Overall, I am very happy with their experience and would highly recommend to others.

My friend from out of town and I had a blast paddling in Mission Bay. Wendy gave us a tour and directed us to the highlights. We enjoyed seeing the wildlife from the water. We felt very safe, secure, and relaxed. It was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend it to anybody looking for an adventure on the water in beautiful San Diego. Photo credit goes to Wendy.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I always enjoy seeing people’s faces when they realize how friendly the sea lions are in this area and how close one can get. It’s fun when they swim all around us too. And of course I would take pictures to capture it all. Only the best for my customers. 🤙👍😎

My friend San San and I enjoyed a wonderful morning of StandUp Paddleboarding with Wendy. She made everything easy for us and knew just where to go to see sea lions and pelicans. We got quite close to the sea lions, which was amazing. It really helped to have a knowledgeable guide with us so we didn't waste time trying to figure out where to go. Since Wendy knew what to do and where to go, we could just relax and enjoy the paddle. Wendy was open to our suggestions as well, so we got a customized trip. It was a great trip!

My husband and I enjoyed a sunset paddle board adventure with Doug. We were taken through the basics and were quickly in the water and mastering the skills. We paddled down the river which was quiet and really pleasant. Doug snapped away and got some good photos. We then headed back up the river and out on the open water for a bit more of a challenge and watched the sun go down as we returned. Doug was a great teacher and really set us at ease. It was also good to learn a bit more about the area and the sport from him. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting Oahu. Thanks
