I've read through accounts of folks who kayaked the Na Pali coast. Some say, "was much easier than I had thought it was going to be," while others say, "it was brutal. Don't do it unless you are glutton for punishment." Assuming that folks who take this on are reasonably fit, I'm thinking much of the difference in experience has to do with weather conditions, especially wind speed and direction. Anyone have any insight into the maximum wind speeds for a good trip?
Or am I totally off-base and it really has to do with other conditions that cause big swells, chop, etc.?
