Hoe he’e nalu

…also known as stand up paddleboarding or SUP for short, is not only one of our favorite guest experiences – but is also a great way to explore a Hana from the water and learn about the tradition’s rich Hawaiian heritage, too.

The beginner level class at Travaasa Hana is offered through our resort programming four times a week and available to guests ages 12+ up. The resort favorite incorporates a few of our favorite things – fitness, relaxation, water, and sharing Hana Town.


The activity begins with our instructor teaching the basic techniques during a 30-minute ground instruction, then we’re off to paddle for joy in Hana Bay! During your 90-minute paddling session, you will learn about the cultural significance of the waters from our local guide while you explore the beautiful bay that surrounds you.

Our two-hour SUP experience is available on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Guests of Travaasa Hana can use the Total Travaasa resort credit or book for a $60 per person fee. Advanced sign-up is required. To reserve your spot, contact our concierge or stop by the Makana Center today.
