Countless miles of Kaua‘i’s breathtaking coastline and interior waterways lie waiting to be discovered by kayak. Kayaking is an efficient, environmentally kind mode of transportation—the same used by Hawaiians for centuries.
Travel deep into the past up the majestic Wailua River and learn about the area’s rich history, flora and fauna. A short valley hike brings you to enchanting Secret Falls—a 120-foot waterfall that descends into a picturesque jungle pool.
Paddle through Kaua‘i’s freshwater paradise, and visit areas normally out of reach to islanders. Or combine sea and river kayaking when you venture into Hanalei Bay with magnificent panoramic views that entice you with blue-water snorkeling, bird watching, and exploring tide pools and beaches.
The NāPali Coast can also be explored by sea kayak. Marvel at towering cliffs, lava-formed sea caves, secluded beaches and waterfalls that plummet into the Pacific. Paddle beyond the verdant valley of Kalalau, the arches of Honopu and into the azure waters of a volcanic sea cave. On any given day, you may encounter dolphins, tropical birds and even the elusive monk seal.
Later, spend a few hours enjoying lunch and resting on the quiet beach of Milolii. Here you can swim, beach comb, and visit an old Hawaiian fishing shrine before ending your tour at Polihale State Park, where the towering cliffs seemingly melt into the sand dunes.
