A little disappointed coz it was too short (15 minutes canoe ride) and only 1 wave. For what I paid for I was expecting more exciting experience!

Russell was our guide and he was great with instructions as well as making sure we road in 3 super waves and one of them being a double wave!! So much fun even for the unexperienced - be sure to book this excursion on your trip.

Fun but not 30 minutes
Margaret_K

It was super fun but was only 20 minutes at the most, of which five minutes were spent going over instructions. In my opinion it was not worth the price for too short of time. I couldn’t believe it when we headed back to shore.

The whole crew was excellent. It was a memorable experience catching waves on Waikiki with diamond head in view. Best experience of our trip. Thanks Captain Russell and crew.

The outrigger canoe surfing was wonderful. The captain and his mates were very helpful. We even saw a turtle. We did have a challenge finding where we checked in because we weren’t familiar with the Royal Hawaiian Hotel.

Exhilarating and not cheesy after all

Wow! This was so much fun! Easy to find in front of the Royal Hawaiian (pink hotel). Guides were super nice. We thought it might be cheesy but it was really fun and exhilarating and the folks in the water on boards were all very nice as we roared by them. It was quick - 3 waves maybe 20 minutes - but a great way to kick off our vacation - with teens - in Oahu!

My family had a great time but you should be aware that you will have to paddle the canoe out to catch the wave. I was worried at first because I can’t swim but it is perfectly safe & the captain and crew are experts.. It was a lot of fun!

Fun canoe surfing

We chose this activity as it’s much easier to do than actually surfing on a board. It was nice being out there with the other surfers in a canoe. My whole family enjoyed it.
