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!

Me and my wife took a group surf lesson, we've surfed before but that was before kids, we went out with Christian and had a blast. We ended up coming back twice. Instruction was great, we caught a lot of waves and had a great time, it was a ton of fun to progress on the trip. Also, thanks Tyler for taking pics. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Maui! Thanks!

Definitely the place to go to learn how to surf! Knowledgeable and friendly instructors, great instructor-to-student ratio and a beautiful place to surf right on Kaanapali Beach within walking distance of the resorts. Added bonus: sea turtles were swimming all around the surf boards!

Had an amazing lesson learning to surf. Got semi and private lessons for the family and everyone loved it. The instructors (Tyler, Peter &... Christian ?) were fantastic, personable and made the whole thing great. Absolutely recommend and will come back whenever we return to Maui (hopefully soon!).

My father, brother and I finally had our first surfing lesson. Our property manager recommended Island Style Adventures and we had an amazing time. We were part of a group lesson but the two instructors gave us plenty of individual time. Will definitely return again.
