Stand up Paddle the most beautiful part of the island! The Windward Side of Oahu, home to ancient Hawaiian royalty because of the abundant natural resources, calm ocean, and majestic towering cliffs, is perfect for paddling because of the outer coral reefs blocking surf from the shorelines. We'll meet at my home to begin with an introduction in the basics of paddling, visit with our pet boars, and outfit ourselves for the experience. Once at the beach, we hop on the boards and begin to paddle! From offshore, I'll share with you my extensive knowledge of the natural, cultural, and historical significance of this amazing place. Get ready for great Hawaiian stories passed down through generations! As we paddle out of the calm bay, you'll see the famous Chinaman's Hat breaching out of the water like a small volcano. This site is jaw-dropping in beauty. We'll paddle the crystal clear waters, taking in the coral reefs, schools of fish, and birds flying overhead. We might just end our paddle by grabbing a refreshing coconut from a tree overhead. Leave Hawaii with an experience to remember for a lifetime!

The east side of Oahu is a truly magical place and the perfect location to learn about Hawaiian history and paddle to outer islands. Referred to as the Windward side, massive green mountains tower over the ocean in epic proportions as waterfalls are frequently seen flowing down to the sea. Where the mountains meet the sea, we'll meet to paddle the calm clear waters off the Koʻolau coast!
