I would rate our experience on the day tour with Napali kayak as average. I wish I could give an excellent rating, but there are some reasons why I won't. First, the good things. The company is great. Contact is smooth, the guides are nice...More

This excursion is no joke. It's just as hard as advertised. It's just as long as advertised. The sun is just as intense as advertised. It's absolutely not for everyone, as advertised. All that being said, if you're up for the challenge, the payoff is...More
