Customer Feedback

  • My husband and I are 36 and did this trip with another couple. We are all moderately in shape and work out 4-6 times per week doing cardio and strength training. We were all VERY nervous about the physical aspect of this trip along with the motion sickness aspect ( 2 members in our group are very prone to motion sickness) that we almost didn't sign up. Well thank goodness we did. We all had an amazing time and nobody got sick ( we all used the patch):) Our kayak trip included exploring a cave, seeing sea turtles and dolphins right in front of us, exploring a remote beach, and viewing the sights of the Napali coastline. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and I would recommend it to everyone thinking about it. It was not as scary and physical as we had thought and all the worry was for nothing. Sooo fun and we weren't even sore!

  • Fantastic trip along the Na Pali coast! Beats hiking and of course motorized ways of "enjoyment" any day, and you get to see parts of the coast that are only accessible by boat. Our guides, Nick and Casey, were awesome and shepherded the fleet with knowledge, humor and skill the whole day. The equipment is top notch and the staff incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. A trip to remember - do it!

  • Kauai was our chosen honeymoon destination and since my husband and I are both adventurers we decided to spend one of our days kayaking Napali. Oh my! It was the BEST! Such beautiful vistas, some intense moments paddling into caves (so worth it!!!), and the perfect amount of physical challenge. I'm someone who gets a little nervous with deep oceans and waves, etc., but there was something really refreshing being out on the open ocean and seeing the coast by our own muscle power. The speed boats cruise by, but they don't get to stop and enjoy the vistas the way we do... all day! It really couldn't have been more perfect. Adrien and Jamie were AWESOME guides, knowledgeable and fun. the sandwiches were tasty too. I would for sure do this again... and fully recommend to anyone who has the right attitude to enjoy a day on the water. It is long... but it somehow goes by very quickly. Keep in mind, long sleeves are a good idea, and maybe even long pants, since you only stop on land one time, which makes well intentioned reapplication of sunblock a bit difficult. :) This is for sure one of the coolest trips I have ever taken!

  • If you have decided to do this incredible journey, then this outfit is great. The guides and this outfit are laidback. Do not do this trip if you have a negative attitude or are absolutely out of shape. If so, you will not enjoy it. Also, if this is your first time seeing the Napali Coastline, save this Kayak trip for another time, since at times you will be so tired, or so concentrating on paddling you may miss a bit of the scenery. If you have seen the coast before and want another great perspective then go ahead. I am glad I did it, but not sure I would do it again, next time I will let a boat do the work.. No regrets though!

  • My wife and I completed kayaking the NaPali through NaPali Kayak last week (July 26) and had an amazing time. Truly the highlight of my first trip to Kauai. Our guides, Ivan and Adrian, were lively and funny, but also professional and conscientious of the group's safety at all times. The trip outperformed my expectations, and they were pretty lofty to begin with. As for difficulty, it's certainly a physical challenge, but if you're in decent physical shape and not afraid of a little work (or a lot, depending on weather/surf conditions), I certainly wouldn't shy away. I'd recommend to anyone with an adventurous soul and a willingness to put with sore shoulders/lats the next day or two. Thanks guys!
