Kilauea, United States

Experience hosted by Tropical

60 mins
Includes equipment
Up to 5 people

What you'll do

This is the one and only Kauai Night Glow SUP Tour.

Experience the world-renowned North Shore of Kauai from the water at night! Our glowing stand up paddle board experience is safe, fun, and perfect for anyone seeking an extraordinary and unforgettable time.

Take in a fascinating perspective with an authentic, experienced, and friendly local waterman at this beautiful beach as the sun goes down and the lights on our boards light up the water and sea life beneath you.

We'll head out from Anini, Hawaii’s largest barrier reef, one of the most breathtaking locations on earth, as the sun sets, taking in the lush mountainside and glowing clouds as drift over gorgeous coral and warm, clean ocean water. Then we'll glide home in the twilight through peaceful, iridescent waters aboard your floating, luminescent vessels.

Each board is equipped with waterproof LED lights that make for a glowing display of sheer wonder. We'll explore calm waters providing an illuminating experience and allowing you to see the magnificent, North Shore of Kaua’i while paddling in an entirely new way!

If you're on Kaua'i, the adventure island, your stay is incomplete until you try this.

Raised on the North Shore of Kauai since the age of 5, I have always been filled with passion and appreciation for the ocean. Having the local knowledge and connection with Kauai allows for my guests, friends, and students to experience genuinely what a Hawaiian surfing tradition should be. Catching their first waves in my backyard is a special feeling for me. I share in the joy of every successful take-off to the giggles of every wipeout, that's why I started Tropical Experiences.

- 20 years of surfing experience on Kauai and in Brazil
- 5 years of experience as a professional surf instructor and tour guide
- CPR Certified

Where you'll be

On clear nights you will love taking in the stunning, starry sky above us as we drift through calm, pristine water atop our glowing SUPs.

On rainy or windy nights the tour is still so much fun! The winds will help us to get more speed as we glide over the water, so we will still run the tour. Guests will still enjoy splashing, dancing, and playing along the blissful Anini coastline.

Kauai is consistently chosen as the #1 destination in America

The guide was nice and helped carrying the boards so we could enjoy ourselves while not working too hard. Overall it was a great experience! We went on a windy night and we were hoping the trip would be postponed, but they still go rain, fog, and wind!

Magical experience. We saw so many sea turtles! I was a little anxious to do this for the first time in the dark on open water, but I felt safe the whole time and that Joel was focused on our safety and enjoyment. Mahalo Joel for being so welcoming, caring, open and engaging!

This was an incredibly unique and enjoyable experience. We loved being surrounded by dozens of turtles, gliding along the water in such an idyllic place.

Joel was amazing. If you are looking to make friends with a local and a experience the best of Hawaii you need to take this tour

The experience was amazing! Truly unique and well-worth the cost. With that being said, I would definitely recommend chacos, shoes, or some type of foot wear to protect your feet from the coral.

Even in slightly rough seas, this was a great experience. Our small group had a good time chatting as we saw wildlife and had the rare fun of being on the ocean after sunset, with an expert who grew up there and loves the water! Definitely recommend as a unique way to be active on Kauai!
