We wanted to take a surf lesson & found the companies on Waikiki beach very expensive (4 of us). We found Hawaiian Surf Adventures & it was awesome, we were the only people in the lesson & the instructors were excellent. They explained everything in a way that the kids (12 & 10) & adults understood w/ no issues. They... More

We have been to Oahu many times but this is the first time canoeing! I was a liitle scared b/c I am not a good swimmer but Lisa was very comforting on the phone and assured me that the water is quite smooth and with a life jacket, I would be ok. I was also worried that the water might... More

My husband and I did the Double-Hull Canoe Tour on 3/27. We were lucky enough to have a good group of people and a great teacher, Lyssa. The first half hour was spent being instructed on the proper use of the paddle (didn't realize I was holding it wrong after all these years)and the different commands used. Before heading out...

Wow! This was our favorite experience, by far, on a recent seven-day visit to Honolulu. We stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki, which offers its own surfing lessons on crowded Waikiki. The beauty of Hawaiian Surf is that they take you out to an little-visited reef beneath Koko Head and let you surf in isolation. Both of our landlubber kids (age... More

Don't waste your time taking surfing lessons with a large group. Get personalized instruction with a small group, two instructors and your own wave! The perfect surfing experience starts and ends here! Our family LOVED every minute of our time with this company.

Nobi does a great job leading the canoe paddle in the Hawaiian outrigger he built! As the other reviewers agree, you will be happy you did. Take a short trip from Waikiki and get a true Hawaiian tour! There is a Costco and Kona Brewery nearby to round out your day here.

Big thanks to Geary who was so patient with us as we went through our introduction to stand up paddleboarding. It was a slightly windy day so we found the going tough but Geary taught us all about technique and we managed to get there in the end! Really good tuition and most of all we had fun and enjoyed...

If you are anywhere on Oahu, you do not want to miss the opportunity to go on an adventure with Hawaiian Surf Adventures. From the moment I called to book our surf lessons, I knew we were in good hands. Lisa, the owner, was very polite and accommodating. When I checked in for the lesson I met the other owner,... More

This was the most engagingly interesting tour we enjoyed while visiting Oahu. Nobie, a 12th generation Hawaiian boat builder, inspires and teaches you to paddle an outrigger - one that he personally built - while educating you in the geologic, cultural, and natural histories of the Hawaiian islands. Paddling, swimming, humor, fun, navigational tips. This tour is fantastic! Thanks Nobie... More
