Touring Hawaii's Na Pali Coast by kayak is the ultimate way to experience Kauai's sea caves, waterfalls and hidden beaches. Paddle in warm seas and meet dolphins and monk seals. Small groups led by expert guides.


Discover caves, plunging waterfalls, and hidden beaches on this National Geographic Award-winning tour of the Na Pali Coast. Since this area is not accessible by car, kayaking is the ultimate way to see the beautiful Hawaiian coastline and all its hidden treasures.

You will be transported to the coast, where you'll receive your equipment and get briefed on the safety guidelines. For your paddling ease, speed and comfort, you'll be provided with ‘sit on top’ 2-person plastic sea kayaks with foot-controlled rudders and ample backrests.

You'll kayak beyond the lush valley of Kalalau and the natural arch of Honopu. Honopu is the tallest arch in Hawaii and a marvel of the natural world. At this point you can expect to meet dolphins, birds, and, if you are lucky, the elusive monk seal! The secluded beach at Miloli’I is the next stop. Miloli’I is one of the last Hawaiian fishing villages, and offers an insight to the Hawaiian way of life. Here, you'll be treated to a deli-style lunch and a few hours of much-deserved rest. You are free to bathe, beachcomb, and visit an old Hawaiian fishing heiau (shrine).

The afternoon involves more kayaking along Kauai’s stunning cliffs. Your final destination is the Polihale State Park, where the magnificent cliffs transform into sand dunes. Here, you can shower and change clothes. A van will be waiting to transport you back to the meeting point. After completing the tour you will be issued a Na Pali Sea Kayak Diploma. Frame it, hang it on your wall, and add this qualification to your resume!
