We took the tour with 2 other couples & our guide, Lissa. She made sure everyones schedule could accommodate being back from the tour a little late as the day was beautiful & the water was calm. We paddled out of the bay out towards open ocean and stopped over a live coral reef and were encouraged to jump into... More

We went on the double hull canoe trip with Nobi and Stacy, who were very friendly and enthusiastic. It was a small group - just 4 of us. We rowed out and took a break while Nobi gave us a crash course in all things Hawaiian, including history, culture, forming of the islands etc. It was great to learn so... More

I was thrilled when I found a Groupon for the 2.5 hour double-hull canoe tour, especially after reading all of the great reviews on both Trip Advisor and Groupon. So, needless to say it took a lot of effort to make the trip. Our tour was cancelled twice by Hawaiian Surf Adventures. However, we stayed in Waikiki for two weeks... More

Aloha and thank you for joining us, although I understand it was not what you were expecting. As I said when we spoke about the cancellations, when people cancel on US, it is just as disappointing. We need a minimum of 5 people to paddle the double-hull canoe, so since you only had 2 people in your group we could... More

I got the canoe tour on Groupon and had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip. It was great to be on the water, great exercise, and Nobi was a great guide. He made it fun for everyone. He shared so much knowledge about the Hawaiian islands, culture, and people.... More

Did both a paddle boarding and surf lesson here. Enjoyed both very much. Paddle boarding is in calm waters. For surfing you take a boat out to the reef and catch the waves there. The instructors were good. would join another tour if i was in the area again. Fun day out.

We recently visited Hawaiin Surf Adventures for a double canoe trip. This was our family's first trip to Hawaii although I had visited 25 years ago to paddle the Molakai canoe race. I really wanted my family to have an opportunity to paddle an outrigger as they aren't that easy to come by in Sydney. Our guide Lyssa (no A)... More

We used a 50% off coupon from travelzoo for our family of four. Sasha gave us a great lesson and we were all able to get up on our first try. We continued paddle boarding for about another hour and a half, switching boards between our group and instructor. We found out that the smaller boards go fast but are... More

Literally a private lesson, paid for a group lesson with my friend. The company instructs groups up to 6 people. It was just the two of us. Easy going and nice instructor, very informative and helpful throughout. Our session was a bit windy, but very fun and great workout. Would recommend the company and go back again!
