Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Kauai

Surfing, Paddleboarding, and Kayaking on Kauai

Kauai is renowned for its water sports, and there’s no wonder. Calm and clear waters make it the perfect place to try a new sport, refine existing techniques, or paddle to hidden gems with a guide. Here are some of the best water sports Kauai has to offer. 

Surfing

With gentle surf and year-round warm water, Kauai is a great place to learn how to surf. Master the basics during a beginners surf lesson or hone your skills with an advanced lesson. Nothing beats the exhilaration of catching your first wave. 

Paddleboarding

Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is a fun and exciting way to explore the rivers and bays of Kauai. Plus, it’s a fairly easy sport to learn and the perfect activity for the whole family. Take a lesson to learn about ocean safety and paddleboard basics before taking to the water with your guide. Experienced paddlers can rent a board and explore the water on their own.

Kayaking

Kayaking is a great way to experience parts of the Na Pali Coast that are inaccessible by other modes of transport. Kayak tours are suitable for the whole family and can be combined with zipline or hiking adventures for a day of action-packed fun.
