Hi, has anyone done the Hanalei river kayak? Is there a place nearby were we can rent a kayak for the day? We leave in two weeks..thanks
We've Kayaked the Hanalei River twice. Both times with Kayak Kauai. Although they are known more for their Sea Kayaking adventures, they also have River Rentals. They are located right on the Hanalei River. They set you up with either single or double kayaks, and they "put you in" off their dock. When you return, they help bring the kayak back up. Very nice and friendly folks. If you want to Kayak the Hanalei River, I would recommend them.
Though you wouldn't want to take their river kayaks all the way out to the ocean, you can paddle down to the mouth and pull your kayak up on the beach at Hanalei to relax before paddling back to the dock.
