Travel Insurance

Travel Insurance is NOT included. We strongly recommend that passengers have their own travel insurance against illness, injury, loss/damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on confirmed departure dates.

The Essentials

We offer a wide range of tours, from our Aloha Sunrise, to daily paddles through the coconut mangrovers along side local fishermen in basket boats; we even occasionally hit the river to watch the sunset. Our tours all depart between 4:45AM for the sunrise to a little after dawn when the conditions are best. Due to our tours being on warer, we rely on the weather, so give us a call and we’ll let you know where we’re padding! No prior experience is required we’ll get you up and on your feet in no time! Please contact our staff for more information on current tours and times!

How much luggage can I take?

When booking any of our tours, we will let you know what you need to bring in detail in your confirmation. Generally all you will need is some swim attire, sunscreen, and the ability to enjoy a good time on the water! All of our tours include a SUP guide, all equipment necessary to participate, drinking water, and food. We also vring along our waterproof camera to catch all the candids for your new profile picture.


As much as we would like to share our love of SUP with any and everybody, a few things are required from all paddies. Due to being on water during a majority of tours, all paddlers must have the ability to swim. Any and all skill levels are able to SUP, but keep in mind it is a physical activity. We don’t recommend SUP for those who get easily seasick or cannot stand for long periods of time. Let us know of any conditions and we’ll do our best to accommodate! Cheers!
