HONOLULU, HI (January 7, 2010) — The Kahala Hotel & Resort has kicked up the fun factor
with the addition of Keawe Ocean Adventures to their roster of activities, which also includes the
popular Dolphin Quest and Kahala Kids programs.

ON THE BEACH

Keawe Ocean Adventures sees the beach as a journey of fun and discovery. Their ocean
experts are inspirational guides that make seemingly difficult water activities accessible no
matter what age or skill level. Learn how to surf, stand-up paddleboard, snorkel, spear fish,
outrigger canoe surf, and fly fish. Guided beach programs are open to all ages, and all activities
take place in Maunalua Bay, fronting The Kahala from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

   •   Fly Fishing - Bonefish, oio in Hawaiian, thrive in the sandy, shallow waters off The
       Kahala. Catch five to ten pound oio from an outrigger canoe with light tackle and spinner
       rods. $150 for 1.5 hours; $300 for 3 hours.
   •   Surfing – Private surf lessons, all the gear you need (including rash guards and reef
       walkers), and guides that point you to the right surf spot within seconds make for
       fantastic surf adventure. For advanced surfers, mini surf trips to nearby spots can also
       be arranged. $100 for 1 hour.
   •   Stand Up Paddling – A blend of surfing and paddling, and a great core workout, hour-
       long private lessons allow plenty of time to learn this balancing act. $100 for 1 hour.
   •   Outrigger Canoe Surfing - Catch waves in an 18-foot outrigger canoe for an
       exhilarating Hawaiian roller coaster ride. Session comes with a life vest, safety lesson,
       and an experienced waterman. $75 per person for 30 minutes.
   •   Snorkeling – Access remote snorkeling areas in an outrigger canoe to see a variety of
       colorful reef fish. $65 per person for 1 hour.
