What people are saying about Honolulu

Paulo was very knowledgeable about the basics of surfing and he made it EXTREMELY easy and VERY enjoyable!! I still can’t believe I stood up on a surf board for the first time and caught a wave in Hawaii! My friend and I did the 1 hour, 2-person surfing lesson. It was nice that we didn’t have to share our lesson time with strangers. The hardest part was paddling out, so I highly recommend just doing 1 hour if you’re a beginner, as I was exhausted by the end of it! Outstanding lessons! Thank you Paulo!!!

(Beginner/intro dive) Awesome experience!!! Extra friendly. Professional. Really made it easy to understand and fun!! They give you classes which was brief and easy to follow, walk you through with the scuba gear then the dive instructor works with each individual till they are comfortable. Last you dive as a group supervised. It was a great experience for me and my teenage son who were diving for first time.

It’s was an amazing experience. I will try again take this. I love it! Teams was professional, patient and kind. Congratulations for this.
