Ocean Kayak trips to Na Pali closed for the season....

Aloha from Kaua'i!

I have a friend who is a guide for the kayak tours that take you out into the ocean and over to the Na Pali coastline - yesterday was the last tour of the season - from here on out, ocean conditions are too rough to take kayaks out - however I believe that most of the boat tours are still going out there.

Just thought folks might want to know in case they are thinking of ocean kayak tours - I think they still offer them, but they are not to the Na Pali area.

Malama Pono,

That's disappointing. I leave on Wed and was looking forward to it.

It's an amazing trip but not one you want to do with the risk of winter surf kicking up. Kayak Kauai lists their summer schedule as May-September. They also offer a winter whale watch kayak trip from Poipu to Port Allen.

It looks like they meet at their shop in Kapa'a and transport to/from there. They also will do hotel pick-up along the way.

It is a grueling trip even in nice conditions, so I heard. I can't imagine what it would be like when the surf gets rough.

I bet you can still rent kayaks at Hanalei Kayak and paddle out to the bay and onto Hideaways Beach.

Oh yes, I didn't mean to imply at all that you can't go ocean kayaking this time of year - only that the Na Pali Coastline kayak tours have stopped for the season.

Plenty of other ocean kayaking tours available in other areas - as well as river kayaking of course.

Malama Pono,
