Camp and Paddle along the Na Pali Coast

The coast tour requires surf launches and landings as well as a 17-mile rough water paddle. We suggest you pick your paddle mates carefully as this is not a trip to convince someone to go on, and not suitable for children.

It’s important to meet at headquarters the day before departure, preferably by 2 p.m. At this time, we take care of paperwork, go over the tour route, distribute dry bags, answer any questions and show you your kayaks. This is key to making your morning smooth and seamless.

Na Pali Coast Camping Permits:

There are only two remote camp sites along the coast. The first site, Kalalau, is about seven miles. This impressive beach and valley is also accessible via the 11 mile hiking trail. When traveling to Kalalau by kayak, a maximum of five camping nights are allowed and require a standard camping permit.

Miloli’i, the second campsite, is about 11 miles down the coast. A maximum of three nights are allowed at this camp site. It is only accessible by the ocean only, so a camping permit is required as landing is assumed.

Kalalau and Miloli’i permits are $20 per night for locals with Hawaii ID and $30 per night for visitors. They can be obtained through the DLNR State Parks Website.

Unguided Pre-approved Campers

If you’ve done business with us before or have a lot of experience along the Na Pali coast and don’t require a guide, you should talk to Josh or Ivan to get permission to go unguided.

Making a Reservation

We require a non-refundable deposit of 20%. The balance will be due at check in, ideally the day prior to put in. Make sure you have your permits upon arrival as we must photocopy them and cannot allow anybody on the water without them. Please give us a call if you have any further questions regarding your tour.
