ka napoo ana o hoe ~ Sunset Paddle
Our Signature Sunset Tour is THE MOST EPIC way to end your day in paradise!
A short drive down Puako Beach Drive to the First Beach Access, we will capture classic Kohala Coast sunset pictures. After a briefing and lesson is when the LIGHTSUP magic happens! With our lights on, 4500 lumens illuminates the life that comes out in the dark and attract the marine life that feeds on the plankton that concentrates under our expansive viewing window. Our guides share their knowledge of the fish and coral while be keeping our eyes open for the manta rays who will be searching for their plankton dinner. The reef at night is a whole new world, the pure light showing the true colors of reef. This is an experience you'll never forget!
We know... We know... What about sharks?! This is a concern for some, perhaps most. The truth is, the ocean is the home to all sea life including sharks. We have done extensive research and consulted numerous night diving professionals and the overwhelming consensus is reef sharks are active at night but they are not attracted to light and rarely come up to the surface. We are on the surface, on top of a SUP board and if we are lucky, we will see them cruising along the bottom. Even though sharks are not attracted to the lights, plankton is, and plankton is the main food source for the majestic Manta Ray. This is the encounter we hope most to share with you. We are NOT a Sea World kind of marine life experience, show times of species are not scheduled.
