5 108 Reviews | Add your review

You can’t visit the Hawaiian islands without getting your feet wet in the Pacific Ocean. Pair your beach lounging time with a surfing, paddleboarding, or kayaking experience on Oahu—whether you’re a beginner or an expert, here are your options.

Surfing
The gentle waves in Hawaii make it a good place for beginners to hop on a surfboard and test their balance. Sign up for a lesson with a local to learn the basics and you'll be riding the waves in no time.

Paddleboarding
Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is one of the United States' fastest-growing activities, and it all started here in Hawaii with a couple of visionary surfers. Rent a board or take a lesson and join the stand-up movement.

Kayaking
For those who want to get in on the action and enjoy the scenery, kayaking is the best option. Spend an afternoon on a guided excursion for uninterrupted coastal views, close looks at sealife, and opportunities for snorkeling.
