the ultimate - Big Island ocean adventure
stand up paddling stoke
day or night
shining a light on reef degradation
raising awareness & funds
for coral restoration
Lights attract plankton, plankton attracts the marine life we observe through your viewing window on our evolutionary SUP's!
LightSUP Hawaii is a next level human experience that combines the stoke of SUP with the views of snorkeling, day or night.
The coral reef we explore and marine life we admire
are the most healthy and abundant in Hawaii.
Our guides share their knowledge of the reef's secret treasures you're seeing in your window and their experience gives us the best opportunity to see the marine life below. Yet, Mother Nature is always in charge out there and we do not guarantee marine life encounters.
Help us be the change we want to see on the reef,
experience our one of a kind SUP's and our one of a kind ocean views
and of course, our world famous
LightSUP Hawaii Aloha!

Loved the sunset paddle! Started out watching sunset on the water while the team took amazing photos of us on the boards. Then turned on the lights and was able to see very well, through the see through window, in the board down onto the reef. Saw a turtle and many fish. I paddle board several times a week but not at night, would recommend to any first timers or experienced paddlers! Kelly, who lead us around the bay couldn’t have been friendlier or more informative.
Amazing experience! I planned this event/activity for my wife’s 40th birthday and Kelly’s outstanding kindness and customer service made it worthwhile. Will definitely return to do another one at sunset if we visit the big island again. I definitely recommend Lightsup Hawaii. family owned business with passion and love for customers and highest service standards. You don’t see that often in this day & age. Mahalo Kelly & Team, hope to see you again!
