About Island Style Adventures
We are located at The Whaler's Village Shopping Center in Kaanapali. A booth on the boardwalk near the ocean. We are adjacent to Leilani's on the Beach Restaurant. Look for the booth that says "Maui Dive and Surf" and "Island Style Adventures"....we're the surf instructors in the yellow shirts! We are locally owned and take pride in offering a 5 star experience, we boast the smallest student:instructor ratio of 3:1 on the island. With service being our number one priority (actually second to safety), our personable staff that are Lifeguard and CPR certified, will ensure that you have the time of your life. Be careful though, you just might become one of the many returning guests that become "family" to us! Can't wait to have you join us for some serious fun in the sun!
