None of us had paddle boarded before and Charlotte was a great instructor. She was patient and knowledgeable, took pictures for us and made sure we were safe. Our family of 5 would highly recommend this low key adventure. *Parking is a bit challenging so make sure to arrive early:)

We had a lovely experience. The river was gorgeous and our guide, Carol, the founder of north shore surf girls, was super sweet and great to spend the morning with. We had an amazing time just leisurely paddling up the river and enjoying the late morning breeze. Also saw a bunch of sea turtles! Would absolutely do it again and recommend to friends and family.

About This Deal


We start at the mouth of the Anahulu river near Haleiwa Harbor and travel upstream. The Anahulu River feeds into Waialua Bay from the Koolau Range, and the mix of fresh and saltwater creates brackish hues know for its solitude and frequent turtle sightings. The river’s current is so slight that it makes for a nearly effortless outing. A journey to the river’s end takes about 60 minutes, where turns into a tranquil mountain stream. There, paddlers can turn right back around and follow the gentle current back to Waialua Bay. In the Bay, students who want to can try riding the small waves that are usually breaking over a safe sand bar.
