Anahulu River - June 30, 2014

On the North Shore of Oahu the Anahulu river connects to the ocean creating brackish water. Many kayakers and Stand Up Paddle boarders cruise up the river starting under the Haleiwa Rainbow Bridge.

& if you don't own or kayak or paddle board, Surf N Sea has affordable rentals.

This was our second time going up the river, but this time we planned to go all the way to the end of the river. Mahalo to Pipe Dreams Surf Co. for the hat!

After coming back to Hawai'i from a week long business trip I was 9 hours of flight time jet lag from a 6 hour time difference. I needed a break! 

In the brackish water I was surprised to find sea turtles and fresh water green turtles living in the same water. It is common to find sea turtles resting up the stream.

It'll take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to reach the end of the stream which is the bridge ahead. 

Beware of the pit bulls, I don't know how friendly they are .

Shortly after we decided to paddle back and ran into my uncle and cousin heading up river.

Aloha!
