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

Upon reading very mixed reviews of this company - I went ahead and booked the Wa’a Kaulua double-hull canoe trip, thinking I would give them a chance. On the positive side - Our guide Nobi was wonderful and I enjoyed the trip, although there were only 7 of us on board, he answered all of our questions. We learned a... More

Aloha and thank you for the kind words about the canoe tour! The photo CD issue is an unfortunate mis-communication issue on our end.

This was the best experience I could have hoped for. I have been wanting to try stand up paddle boarding for a long time and Hawaiian surf adventures offered an amazing value in a great group lesson. The instructor, Gary, was super attentive and patient, taking time with all of us (there were 4 people in our group) and moving... More

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.
