Wow! Now that was a proper way to see one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. My partner and I did the 17 mile day trip in mid-September. I was nervous at first, I won't lie, but soon felt at ease. Our senior guide, Zach, was super experienced, professional, checked on the group frequently, cut a mean pineapple and left us with many memorable dad jokes to bestow upon others. Joaquin was a perfect sweep, also checked on the group frequently, and was easy with his laughter, which was encouraging in some of the more choppy waters. We loved hearing tales of the Napali coast's native Hawaiian history, hopping off the kayak into the Big Blue to take a load off, going into or through several sea caves, seeing endangered monk seals, and possibly most of all kayaking through a good long downpour near the end. The look of millions of water droplets hitting the water's surface had the appearance of satin. Both a serene and surreal experience. I felt I could do anything after that trip! Thank you for an experience of a lifetime! I have one strong recommendation... take the motion sickness medicine - non drowsy version - even if you're not prone to motion sickness.

My family (me, my wife, and two adult sons) did the Haena to Polihale trip yesterday with Iggy. Hands-down one of our favorite adventures of all time. We love Kauai and the Napali Coast ... we've hiked it, helicoptered over it, seen it from a luxury catamaran at sunset ... but this is the first time we've kayaked it. Iggy is awesome ... knowledgeable, friendly, enthusiastic, informational, safety-conscious, communicative ... everything you want in a great guide. And the rest of the Napali Kayak team that we interacted with (Josh, Ivan, Drew) were all awesome. While this trip isn't for everybody (it's fairly strenuous and wavy), it's absolutely a blast. And it wasn't as strenuous (I'm a 60-year-old, pretty fit guy) as I thought. Yes, it's 17 miles of paddling, but you're paddling with the wind so it's not that bad. Highly recommend Napali Kayak!

Hands down, the BEST way to experience the Napali coast. From the valleys, to the sea caves and the millions colors of the water, this is genuinely an experience of a lifetime. Our guides, Brian and Iggy, did any amazing job! They not only were expert kayakers, but knew the history of the island, the native wildlife, and plants. My wife and I were both really anxious about this excursion and they made sure we felt safe and stoked throughout. My wife did get pretty sea sick and required the assistance of Brain and Iggy which took such good care of her! Would highly recommend a trip guided by them. Do yourself a favor, skip the boring big boat “bus” tours, and book this trip!

This is a fabulous adventure. The best way to experience the NaPali coastline. Everything was very well organized by Josh. Our guides Brian and Ignacio were excellent and really made the trip. Brian was a nonstop source of Hawaiian culture and language, always willing to share with us, an asset to this company. A word of warning, the paddle is over 24 miles and takes around 8 hours. You need to be comfortable in the ocean and in reasonable shape. Once you start the paddle there is no turning back. I would also recommend taking waterproof snacks with you, it’s a pretty long haul from 6am to lunch at around 1pm.

There is no better way to see the NaPali coast! This was absolutely a trip of a lifetime. The views are amazing. Going into the sea caves was a fabulous experience. We could not have done this without our excellent guides. Brian and Iggy were fantastic. They were fun, shared so much information and love for Kauai and most of all kept our safety as the number one priority. We really appreciate all of the native food that Brian shared and the extra time that he spent sharing his knowledge of the island. This is a tough paddle but Brian and Iggy are excellent at keeping the group positive and head strong. Their confidence in the abilities of the group, encouragement throughout the trip and willingness to adjust to group dynamics was outstanding. Grateful to have had this incredible bucket list experience!
