Oahu Stand Up Paddleboarding combines the thrill of surfing with the techniques of paddling! Stand up paddle, or SUP, is an ancient water sport that has made a major comeback with the help of new board technology, which increases the performance and ease of riding. You will get a variety of ocean conditions in Kailua, from flat water to moderate chop and rolling waves. SUP tours will generally stick to the calmest areas in order to practice basic strokes and techniques. We offer SUP experiences with Oahu’s premiere tour operator, Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks. Their shop is located in the Kailua Beach Center which serves as the staging area for their operations.
Oahu Stand Up Paddleboarding tours allows you to explore the breathtaking windward side of the island. Large waves break in the distance due to a reef miles offshore, and this offers miles of pristine bay. Hues of green and blue from the shallow waters and sandy bottom contrast beautifully with the stunning spires of the Ko’olau Mountains.
For those staying in Waikiki or arriving by cruise ship at Honolulu Harbor, complimentary pickup and round-trip transportation is available. You will enjoy the ride via the Pali Highway and its scenic route as you pass tropical rainforests, seasonal waterfalls, and scenic overlooks high above Kailua Bay. At the shop you’ll receive instruction, safety briefings, get set up with your paddle board and meet your guides. There are restroom facilities, changing rooms, lockers, and showers.
All of their guides have certifications in adult and pediatric CPR, as well as first aid training. They are your informed eyes and ears out on the water, and will instruct you in paddling techniques and educate you about the ocean environment.
