Kauai Beach Boys serves as the place to go when you want to make ocean fun a top priority. From the comfort of their modest beach concession stand right by the Kauai Marriott in Lihue, they offer lessons, cruises, and rental equipment of all kinds.

At the heart of their offerings are their surfing lessons, which teach you to ride the waves of Kalapaki Bay like the pros. For a chance to enjoy calmer waters, you can take their stand-up paddleboarding, or SUP, lessons as well. Want the best of both worlds? That’s where their outrigger canoe ride comes in.

No matter which lessons you select, your friendly instructors at Kauai Beach Boys will keep your building skills and feeling confident in the water. Plus, their immense love for the natural waterways and respect for the ocean comes through in all they do. As a result, each lesson will leave a lasting impression on your perception of island life while helping you increase your prowess on the water.

When you need a break from all the action, you can take a leisurely cruise tour with the beach boys. While lounging on their 50-foot catamaran, you can take in all the gorgeous sights of the bay and beyond while enjoying drinks from the bar. Or you can hit the lagoon cruise on their 34-foot double-hull vessel, the Lili Cat, to explore a 35-acre freshwater bird sanctuary. They also offer private, personalized cruises for up to 49 people for all your special occasions.  

Their top activities include:

Surf Lessons
Available for ages 10 and up, the surfing lessons at Kauai Beach Boys give you 1.5 hours on the water, learning how to ride the waves. You’ll get a rash guard, board, and leash plus expert instruction from the top surf experts on the island. Your instructors will teach you all the basics, help you stand up on the board, and then show you just how to catch the waves.

Kauai Lagoons Cruise
The Kauai Lagoons Cruise lets you hop aboard the Lili Cat for a 1.25-hour trip across the calm lagoon waters. As you putt through the bird sanctuary, you can enjoy birdwatching, fish for tilapia, and watch the sun go down. Since the waters are so calm, this is the perfect way for seasick-prone individuals to enjoy spending time on a boat with their friends and family. 

Sunset Cruise
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can take the Sunset Cruise to watch the sun go down beyond the ocean waters. From the comfort of Kauai Beach Boys’ 50-foot catamaran, you’ll go beyond the Kalapaki Bay to the Nawiliwili Bay, past the Huleia River, and along Ninini Point. All along the way, you’ll get to enjoy light appetizers and drinks galore plus have chances to see dolphins, turtles, and other ocean life in their natural habitats.

If you want to practice your surfing and paddleboarding skills after your lessons, you can take Kauai Beach Boys rental gear for a spin. In addition to their surfboard and paddleboard rentals, they have bodyboards, fins, snorkel sets, vests, and both single and double kayaks. You can even rent beach chairs and deluxe umbrellas for when you want to rest up before your next outing. All their items are available by the hour, day, or week to best support all your oceanside adventures.
