About Us

Napali Kayak is an owner operated business that specializes in the Napali coast sea-kayak tour. Our team has experience and Aloha and we are happy to share the beautiful Napali coast with our guests.

Josh Comstock | Owner

Josh paddled into Anahola, Kauai 15 years ago. An experienced leader, Josh has been on Kauai's Na Pali Coast for over 10 years. He worked his way up the not-so-corporate ladder from boat washer to owner. His love of the water is life- long and everyone at Na Pali Kayak appreciates his lighthearted and skilled approach to leadership. During the off season, Josh can be found surfing the north shore of Kauai on his surf kayak or on one of his many boards. His other full time job is on the family neem farm. Neem? Whats neem? Google it.

Ivan Slack | Owner

A long time sailor, Ivan permanently anchored in Hanalei, Kauai 15 years ago. Now, no one on our staff knows the Na Pali Coast or Kalalau valley better. After 8 years of working together with Josh leading sea kayak tours on Kauai's Na Pali Coast, Ivan decided to become Josh’s business partner and together they opened NaPali Kayak. Together, they make the most experienced team on the coast. Ivan shares his humor and enthusiasm with customers daily. When not managing Na Pali Kayak or kayaking on Kauai, Ivan enjoys international travel, surfing, and hiking. No one on our staff knows the Na Pali Coast or Kalalau Valley better.

The Crew

There’s a reason Napali Kayak has the finest kayak tour on the Napali Coast. It's all about the crew. Each of our guides has many years of experience kayaking on Kauai. Each guide also has First Aid and CPR certificates, state park operator’s permits, and a coast-guard-approved lifesaving and small boat rescue certificate. For all of us at Napali Kayak it's not just a job; it's a lifestyle. We’re very proud of our crew. They make us who we are. Three cheers for our crew!
