This is a great excursion for couples who are more on the adventurous side and want to a unique and up close experience with the Napali coast. You need to have some constitution for this 5+ hour kayaking trip in open ocean, but like their webpage implies if you are decent shape and more importantly have a dedicated mindset, you'll... More

We highly recommend this adventure. It was an extraordinary experience. Unfortunately we had no tailwinds to help us along until the last 1 1/2 hours so it was very strenuous but we still enjoyed it. The views are very rewarding. We did not get to go into two of the sea caves due to the strong current but we went... More

This trip lived up to all expectations and more. We were very sorry and unfortunate to be late on arrival, but the group was patient, and the guides were even better, and very understanding. (Thanks for the ride Ivan!) We had Ciro and Casey as our guides. These guys were great! Very knowledgeable, patient and fun. Every bit of the... More

What a phenomenal experience it was kayaking the Napali Coast. If it is not already on your bucket list, it should be. Detailed info below, but if you really want to know what it is like, search “Xolitude Napali Coast is Amazing”. You will get a great feel for the day trip by watching the video.

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 and the trip itself is well-arranged. No complaints there. The price is quite steep, but... More

The whole crew at Napali Kayak are great, they are super friendly even bright and early before a long day on the water. I was lucky enough to have Captain Annie take us on the epic journey down the remarkable Napali Coast. We were lucky to have perfect conditions and got to fully experience all the coastline had to offer.... More

The Napali coast is beautiful, no doubt. But, I'm not sure that doing it by Kayak adds to the experience. For me, it subtracted from the experience. Let me just say that doing this 18mi kayak trip is INDEED and ACCOMPLISHMENT. I wouldn't say I hit my wall per se, but I definitely came close. I'm not in great shape,... More

Kayaking is definitely an awesome way to see the coast. I backpacked the Kalalau Trail last year and wanted to see it from another angle. The scenery is breathtaking, but the guides pace made it clear that all they want to do is get to the end and go back home. It's a point-A to point-B excursion, with a 2... More

Our trip was on Friday, August 19. Our guides were really knowledgable and friendly. Follow the directions regarding what to bring, TAKE MEDS To prevent seasickness despite whether you think you'll need them, and come in with an open mind. If you're generally sedentary, and aren't up for a challenge, do yourself and the guides a favor and go on... More
