Stand up paddle boarding in Kauai is very unique. Step from board to shore and hike the lush rain forest trails under a tree-shaded canopy. Cool off in the mountain stream of the secluded blue pool which is home to everyone’s favorite.The Water Zip! (Cannonball competitions encouraged). On the return trip you will be trading your stand up for a sit-down canoe. Relax while you return home in a motorized Hawaiian-Style canoe.
Stand up paddle (SUP) boarding is the latest in watersport innovation and is taking the world by storm! This half day adventure will let you explore this new sport and see what all the fuss is about. The creek and paddle board are provided. You will be amazed how easy it is to put your best foot forward and STAND UP! Then just paddle and glide as you cruise down wind two miles along a tranquil jungle stream. While you are enjoying your new found activity, you will be viewing spectacular scenery of the Hule’ia National Wildlife Refuge and the majestic Hau’pu Mountains. After cruising down the river you will tie your SUPs at the river bank and step from board to shore for another exciting adventure.
You are now on Kipu Ranch! This is where Indiana Jones ran from the angry natives in Raiders of the Lost Ark and where dinosaurs roamed in Jurassic Park.
You will walk about a mile through a tropical rain forest to the secluded Blue Pool, home to everyone’s favorite – the Water Zip! Hold on, step off and then splash into the clear, deep water. Lunch is served on a series of sunny decks above the pool.
