Cruise Ship Passengers
Surf Lessons are available for cruise ship passengers on the afternoon of day one in port for ships that are spending two days on Kauai. The drive time is about 30 minutes from the dock to Poipu and about an hour to Hanalei. We can arrange a rental car for you including free shuttle pick-up to take you to the rental car. Nawiliwili Surf lessons are within walking distance of the harbor.
Learning to surf is surprisingly easy but you can’t just grab a board and head out on your own and expect successful results. One basic lesson to summarize board balance, paddling, and standing technique is essential. Both of these surf schools guarantee that you will stand up during your first lesson!
We don’t really have a recommendation for one surf school over the other. All Kauai surf lessons do a fine job of providing basic surfing instruction. We recommend that you do your surf lesson at whichever location is closest to your hotel or vacation rental.
Surf lessons aren’t just fun for the participants … they are fun for the rest of the family to come along and watch … and take photos … and cheer them on!
If you’re looking for a calmer experience than surfing, and you don’t want to rely on waves, check out Stand Up Paddleboarding lessons!
