Frequently Asked Questions
Surfing is one of the highest ranked answers. However, without a friendly and responsible invitation, many do not try surfing. Going into the ocean and into new surfing areas without a guide can be dangerous and life threatening, but with a professional and experienced guide it can be safe and one of the most memorable experiences.Girls Who Surf was made to provide the highest quality surf experience available in Hawaii and in the world.Recently ranked in the TOP 10 on TripAdvisor.com for Activities in Honolulu. Customers receive distinguished performance instruction and safe experiences. Instructors are Lifeguard and CPR certified. Surfboards, rash guards, reef shoes, refreshments and an aloha gift are included in the lesson fees.
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Favorite day of our trip!!!!
Overall:
My twins had such a wonderful time today. The whole experience was more than we had hoped for. Our girls got up many times and one daughter got up on her first wave. The instructors were so nice and helpful. Loved it so much. The twins want to go back a few more times before we leave to go back home. We even have a disc with great pictures and videos from out on the water.Thanks so much!!!!!!

Surfing in Hawaii
Overall:
Definitely something I've always wanted to do, and what better place to do it that here. When I got to Waikiki I realized that it was really crowded. These guys take you to other spots that are less crowded so it was more comfortable and relaxed. I got up the first time!

Took surf lessons when I was on Oahu with Girls Who Surf. It was really fun, the instructor was really nice and I got up many times. Definitely worth it, because they take you away from the crowds of Waikiki.

We had two great sessions at Kalaeloa Beach last week. My wife and I both had attentive, safety conscious instruction at our level, had a great workout and enjoyed the beach with a tent for shade. They took care of everything, and josh took some great pics for us to take home.
