I would rate our experience on the day tour with Napali kayak as average. I wish I could give an excellent rating, but there are some reasons why I won't. First, the good things. The company is great. Contact is smooth, the guides are nice and the trip itself is well-arranged. No complaints there. The price is quite steep, but... More

The whole crew at Napali Kayak are great, they are super friendly even bright and early before a long day on the water. I was lucky enough to have Captain Annie take us on the epic journey down the remarkable Napali Coast. We were lucky to have perfect conditions and got to fully experience all the coastline had to offer.... More

The Napali coast is beautiful, no doubt. But, I'm not sure that doing it by Kayak adds to the experience. For me, it subtracted from the experience. Let me just say that doing this 18mi kayak trip is INDEED and ACCOMPLISHMENT. I wouldn't say I hit my wall per se, but I definitely came close. I'm not in great shape,... More

Kayaking is definitely an awesome way to see the coast. I backpacked the Kalalau Trail last year and wanted to see it from another angle. The scenery is breathtaking, but the guides pace made it clear that all they want to do is get to the end and go back home. It's a point-A to point-B excursion, with a 2... More

Our trip was on Friday, August 19. Our guides were really knowledgable and friendly. Follow the directions regarding what to bring, TAKE MEDS To prevent seasickness despite whether you think you'll need them, and come in with an open mind. If you're generally sedentary, and aren't up for a challenge, do yourself and the guides a favor and go on... More

This excursion is no joke. It's just as hard as advertised. It's just as long as advertised. The sun is just as intense as advertised. It's absolutely not for everyone, as advertised. All that being said, if you're up for the challenge, the payoff is well worth it. The Napali Coast is breathtaking, and this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.... More

We did the 17miles kayak day trip and it was worth every cent we spent! Annie and Nick were great guides, taking care of everything abd assuring that we had a good time. It is a pretty long day out and be prepared for a sometimes uncomfortable seating position and some waves. But if you make use of the little... More

Make no mistake, this is an intense trip. I've got some sea kayaking experience, but what would really prepare you for the trip is being comfortable paddling for a very long day. The guides were great, prepared to help and when/if you're close enough to their kayak, ready to talk about the history and beauty of the parts of Kauai... More
