Outfitters Kauai offers the fabulous Na Pali Coast Sea Kayak tour that will take you on a 17 mile Kauai Kayaking tour on one of the world’s most beautiful and remote shorelines! Your Kauai Kayaking adventure begins on a ride together in Outfitters Kauai’s 15 passenger van to the launch site in Haena! After about an hour’s paddle, you will come upon the magnificent sea caves of the Na Pali Coast, entering if sea conditions permit! Afterwards, you will raft up your kayak for juice and delicious snacks! We paddle 11 miles in the morning to the first landing, known as Milolii which is the site of an ancient Hawaiian fishing community where you will enjoy a scrumptious lunch! After lunch you will enjoy a 4 mile kayak Kauai paddle in the typically calm water in Polihale where the van will be waiting for you. Upon your return to Outfitters Kauai Poipu store, you will have circumnavigated the entire island on your Kayak Kauai adventure!
Of the many Kauai activities and Kauai tours Kauai kayaking is one adventure you shouldn’t miss while visiting Kauai! This Kauai Kayaking adventure is a long, somewhat strenuous paddle in typically heavy seas so we recommend you being physically fit and up for a good workout. This excursion is not for non-swimmers and is highly recommended that you bring motion sickness medicine such as Bonine, Dramamine or Triptone (over the counter medications) if you are prone to motion sickness. Lunch and refreshments are provided on this Sea Kayak tour and include juice, spring water, snack bars, deli sandwiches and soda. Feel free to bring along additional drinks and snacks as there is plenty of room in the kayak- no alcoholic beverages, please.
