Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie are keeping up their new romance with a trip to Hawaii.

On Friday, The Parent Trap actor, 65, and his girlfriend, 26, were spotted showing off their toned bodies on the beaches of Waikiki before hopping into the water for an afternoon of paddleboarding.

Quaid went shirtless as he walked the shore in bright blue swim trunks while Savoie dressed in a cream-colored bikini.

The two both had the straps from their paddleboards wrapped around their ankles and each carried an oar as they made their way into the ocean.

The pair have been dating for a number of months, PEOPLE confirmed in June. They were previously photographed together in late August while vacationing in Lake Como, Italy.

During their outing, Quaid wore a white polo shirt with dark shorts, while Savoie stripped down into a lacy cream bikini.

They were also seen together on May 14, after enjoying a meal at celebrity hotspot Craig’s in West Hollywood, California.

Savoie, who is originally from St. Louis, Missouri, is currently working towards her Ph.D. in accounting at the University of Texas at Austin and expects to graduate in 2021. During her time in undergrad at Pepperdine University, Savoie also dated actor Jeremy Piven, a source previously told PEOPLE.

Until recently, Quaid was dating longtime girlfriend Santa Auzina, whom he was last photographed with in December. The former pair, who were together for a little over two years, began dating after the actor split from his wife, Kimberly Buffington in 2016.

Buffington, who was married to the actor for 12 years, cited irreconcilable differences and requested spousal support when she filed for divorce in Los Angeles, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE at the time.

The former pair finalized their divorce in April 2018. In the agreement, they share joint physical custody of their twins Thomas Boone and Zoe Grace, both 11, but Buffington was awarded 75 percent of their time.

Quaid, meanwhile, was awarded ownership of their home in Austin, Texas — which could be where he met Savoie.

The actor was also previously married to actress Meg Ryan, with whom he has a 27-year-old son Jack. Their 10-year marriage ended in divorce in 2001.

Before that, the father of three was married to actress P.J. Soles from 1978-83.
