Wanted to sign me, my wife and 10 year old up for stand up paddle board lessons. They advertise lessons at 10 AM, 1 PM and 3 PM. I could have made a reservation online but decided to go to the stand since it was walking distance from my hotel room. Was told they were all canceled for the day... More

I had an hour and a half lesson to learn how to paddle board. Krishun was an excellent instructor. He was really patient and knowledgeable and helped me catch a wave which was a huge plus for me. The bay they teach in is the calmest place I have seen on the island to learn paddle boarding or surfing. One... More

The guides on this tour were fantastic. They really knew there stuff about surfing and the tricks to getting up on the board. They helped out a lot and made it a fun experience. I will definitely be back!

We had a lesson today. There was 5 of us and we had 2 instructors. Thanks to Fred I finally stood up after many years of trying. Yuli (sorry if I mispelt the name) was very patient with the kids. All in all fantastic. Coming back to try again

My family and I rented stand-up paddle boards and kayaks from Kauai Beach Boys. They were very helpful and efficient. Kalapaki Beach is great for newbies and young kids, as it is a pretty gentle area. We found the prices reasonable and had a ton of fun paddling around out there!

My husband and I stayed at the Marriott in Kauai and did a surf and paddle board lesson with Beach Boys! The lessons were a lot of fun, and Im not sure if it was just the timing or how they run, but they were basically private lessons. My husband surfed and it was just him and the instructor, and...

If you are staying at the Marriott this place is so easy and affordable to rent equipment. We rented SUP and snorkel equipment. They are very casual about timing and let you have equipment next day if you didn't have enough time on boards. They open early which is nice if you want to take the equipment to snorkel another...

walked over and rented snorkeling gear for the day...$10 per person, and it was pretty decent gear. Weekly rate was $25 and they left our tab open til our last day (then charged it to our resort bill, very convenient) in case we wanted to rent gear again. Friendly service and easy access. They had all the ocean toys if... More

This was the highlight of our trip. The guides are fabulous. This is not for the faint of heart. Buy some felt bottom shoes - it will make maneuvering the slippery rocks much easier. Also, listen carefully to the instructions. The guides are very entertaining. It is easy to lose focus on what they are saying because you are having... More
