Correct Price Guarantee with Active Oahu

Pricing on the checkout page comes directly from the tour operator, therefore, pricing listed on the website may vary from those in the checkout due to the tour operator changing the prices without notifying us. If you notice any prices are not correct, Contact Us so that we can update that information.

The price at the checkout is always the correct and accurate price and will be the same price you will pay if you were to book direct with that tour operator. We protect you against arriving at a destination and finding the same tour or activity offered at a lower price from our operator.

Discount Codes

We believe you should get the lowest price possible offered by the tour operator. Many tour operators offer online booking discounts and we try to make sure those are posted on our website. We try to keep those updated, but sometimes they expire or change. If you notice any discount codes don’t work or are missing, Contact Us so that we can update that information.

Refund Requests with Active Oahu

Transactions on ActiveOahu.com are made directly with the tour operator you booked with, so you will need to abide by the tour operator’s cancellation policy which is included in the confirmation email you receive after booking a tour. The tour operator’s cancellation policy is also included on the specific activity and company pages on ActiveOahu.com

Most tour operators will gladly refund your purchase if it’s more than 48 hours before your activity start time. If you have trouble getting in contact with the company you booked with, give us a call at (808)498-1894 and we can probably help you out. The tour operator’s contact information is included in the confirmation email.

All refund decisions will be made by the tour operator you book with.

Taxes & Fees

Taxes and fees are included at checkout. Hawaii General Excise Tax is 4.127%. If you are booking online, FareHarbor, the vendor who owns and operates the booking software, charges an online booking fee, normally about 6%.

"I was super nervous to surf for the first time. Mike and Zigg/Zeke were SO NICE. They showed my mom and I all of the techniques, safety instructions. They brought surf boards for us, rash guards, water shoes. They even went above and beyond to make sure we came out during the best time period for the waves..."

"This is one experience in Hawaii that cannot be missed. Mikes surf school is perfect for younger kids and adults. My son had a private lesson as well as I and we were able to get up and surf. It was the perfect amount of time and the pricing was reasonable in my opinion..."

Coming up to beautiful North Shore of Oahu is a must for any visitor to feel the aloha vibes and experience the beautiful water.

This experienced staff will introduce you to the sport of stand up paddling. First, you’ll learn about the proper use and care of the equipment along with correct paddling and turning techniques. Then, we’re off on the water.

With their instruction, you’ll be up, paddling and totally stoked on your very first lesson!

For the Haleiwa location, you have 2 main options: Private Lesson or Shared Group Lesson.

Join a private stand-up paddleboarding lesson with us to get a SUP lesson tailored just for you.
