What to expect
Surf three (3) waves on an outrigger canoe! Canoe surfing was once a sport reserved solely for Hawaiian royalty--but now everyone can experience this thrilling ride! The outrigger canoe is one of the only ocean vessels that does not require life jackets for riders, as it is very safe. All abilities are welcome, ages 5+

Such a fun experience!!
May 2021
This was so much fun!! As close to a surfing experience as I will ever have. Our crew leader was knowledgeable and a lot of fun. It also let us know as beach swimmers we needed to stay clear of the boats we saw heading towards shore. We were lucky enough to also paddle over a turtle as well. Beware that person in the front is gonna take the waves!! Don't be afraid to try, at no point did I ever feel unsafe. Beautiful to see the view of Diamond Head out on the water as well.

Wonderful Activity
Feb 2021
Wonderful experienced true Hawaiin Papa Ki'i (boat captain)
Very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and informative
Everyone in our 8 person family group loved it
Great traditional experience
Bare in mind - Everyone must paddle (but its not hard)
(Ages: We had teenagers, 20 somethings, 50+ year olds and Im a 58 year old woman w bad knees etc and it was even doable for me)
Perfect waikiki beach location
Inexpensive and didn't take up an entire day
Perfect little afternoon excursion for beach goers and hotel guests

Charged for a service they cancelled
We were scheduled for 6 person canoe ride at 2pm. It was raining and thunderstorms were predicted all day so we called at 11am to see if they were cancelling. The individual I spoke to said they were cancelling activities for the whole day because of weather. I asked if we could reschedule and he said I couldn’t reschedule and that the weather would be bad for the entire week and I should see a refund on my card in 3-4 days. The next day I get an email saying thank for you visiting! Turns out they deemed me a “no show” and I was charged in full. When I responded they said they have to “investigate” and will get back to me in 2-3 days.

As someone who works as manager in customer service, this is very poor communication between staff and very poor customer service in general. I do not recommend this service and will continue to dispute the charge.

Hi. If it was cancelled due to weather, we do refund. You would need to contact Viator and request a refund as that is where you had booked. Should you still have a problem getting refund, please let us know. We will reach out to Viator on your behalf.
