Double-hull canoe tour is one of the best things to do on Oahu

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... read 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. Kona Brewery is... More

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

My boyfriend and I did the canoe tour. Our guide (sadly I can't remember his name now) was amazing! I lived in Hawaii for 2 years, but the information he presented was awesome and I learned a ton of new stuff. It was just the right blend of history, fun, interesting, etc. It was a great experience for both of... More

Recently did both the canoe trip with Nobi and the stand up paddle board session with Lyssa. I had excellent experiences with both. The canoe trip was fun as well as very educational regarding Hawaiian culture/history. We learned the correct techniques while enjoying the sights of the coastline. The standup paddle board experience was just as good. Lyssa was very... More

Party of four joined a family of seven on this adventure. Wow. Great value. Fabulous trip out into the bay learning about the Kaiser family and the immediate marina community, good paddling instruction and a great fun paddle. Our guide is obviously loving his job and was so very knowledgeable. I'm sorry no one remembers his name but we went... More

We totally enjoyed the double hull canoe. Our guide Nibo taught us the correct way to paddle. Everyone in the canoe had a great time. Nibo, being a true Hawaiian , was very passionate about the Hawaiian culture and kept our attention with his wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this trip!

After having lived on Oahu for a year, I took friends to try the double hull canoe adventure. It was the best thing I'd tried all year! The hawaiian history was fascinating, the canoeing was challenging and fun. We laughed, paddled, and swam. I even saw a turtle. I've taken every visiting friend on this since then and all of...

This is not to be missed. We took the double-hull canoe tour. We were a little concerned because we are much older than most. It was fine for us. I even jumped in for a swim. The best part is the history lessons you learn. They lay it all out there very authentically. The true history and some thoughts about... More
