We really enjoyed our 2-hour StandUp Paddle boarding tour. We were a party of 3; 1 adult and two preteens. We all had such a great time! Our instructor was very nice and patient. There was no pressure to do more than you are comfortable with. Getting there was pretty easy; about 20 mins from Waikiki. Once your schedule is... More

We recently returned from Oahu and took the double hull canoe tour with Nobi. We learned how to paddle with efficiency and had a great time learning to paddle as a team. What we hadn't bargained for was the history lesson of the Hawaiian Islands and the Hawaiin people. This was a true highlight of our vacation. We had a... More

We really enjoyed our lesson. We are two couples in our 50s who had never paddleboarded. The instructor was very patient and knowledgeable. Thanks for the great experience.

My teenage son and I booked a group surf lesson one afternoon while visiting Waikiki. We ended up having only one other learner in our group; I wouldn't have wanted a larger class as this would have decreased the opportunities to practice (since you surf one at a time). Waves were inconsistent the afternoon we were out, but the ones... More

This was the highlight of our trip! My 3 daughters and I did this one afternoon - ages 44, 20, 13 & 11. We bused from Waikiki (which was easy). They only take 6 out on the boat, my husband came as an observer for just $20 so we had it to ourselves. The waves were good size for beginners... More

Took a surf lesson and had a phenomenal time!!! Instructors were super friendly & explained everything perfectly. Was in a group with my husband & kids & we all had so much fun. All of us were surfing the first try. Highly recommend these guys, a little bit of a drive from Waikiki but so worth it. Much smaller group... More

Nobi is exceptional at teaching you the basics of canoe techniques and Hawaii history. My niece was visiting and we both enjoyed it. They even told me that my hubby (shoulder injury) could have joined us and just ridden along...so if someone is wanting the experience but unable to paddle, just let them know ahead of time.

We had an awsome time! Did the 2 hr private surfing lesson for two. Trace (owner) and Kobe were great. Trace was especially patient and helpful to my wife. Definitely feel you should be a good swimmer to do this. The waves "caught" both of us once and we tumbled some. A novice or beginning swimmer might not have "kept... More
