What You Can Expect
This tour takes place on one of the most beautiful and remote shorelines in the world. The tour begins in Poipu, where you ride together in a 15 passenger van to the launch site in Haena. After paddling for about an hour, you'll come upon the famed sea caves of Na Pali, entering if sea conditions permit. You'll raft up your kayaks for a mid-morning juice and snacks break!
You'll paddle a total of 11 miles (17km) in the morning, reaching Milolii, your first landing. Here, you'll enjoy lunch and explore the site of an ancient Hawaiian fishing community. Typically, you'll arrive at Milolii between 1 and 2 pm, so the morning is long! After lunch, you have a 4 mile (6.5km) paddle in usually calm waters to Polihale, where the van will be waiting for you. When you return to the Poipu store, you'll have circumnavigated the entire island!
A Friendly Reality Check: this is a very long, somewhat strenuous paddle in typically heavy seas. Don't sign up unless you are up for a good workout and maybe a challenge. While this tour is best enjoyed by people who are physically fit and have some basic paddling experience, you may join us as a first time kayaker if you consider yourself to be athletically inclined and quick to learn new sports. Of course, this trip is not for non-swimmers.
Warning: If you are prone to severe seasickness this trip is not for you.
This tour is seasonal and operates only from May through to September
