    Relaxing kayak tour

    Great easy kayaking trip with snorkeling. Not too strenuous. If you’d like more kayaking, go to Wailea river kayak. This one is short river kayak and another short one in the bay to the snorkeling spot
    Fanatic Guide, beautiful and Memorable
    Daniel_P, Aug 2022
    Our guide was fantastic, told us history, feed us lunch, taught us about local culture and helped when my child and mother fell behind. He also helped when we capsized . All if this was done with grace.
    Best activity of the vacation!

    We had a great time and this was one of everyone’s favorite activities during our trip! The kayaking was fun, snorkeling was amazing, and we even got to do some extras such as listen to the guide sing and break open some coconuts. Fun facts along the way, good lunch, great company made it a wonderful addition to our trip! Highly recommend!

    What a great experience with Hanalei Bay kayak team. Nice paddle out to the ocean and the snorkeling was amazing. Saw a lot of the fish on the list and even swam with a turtle for a bit. Paddle back was more or a challenge but truly enjoyed the day!

    So fun!
    Alyssa_B, May 2022
    I really wanted to see a sea turtle, but I didn’t just see one, I swam with two! The kayak portion is fun but the snorkeling was awesome! Several boats flipped (ho’ohuli) on the way back into the river but nobody was hurt. Our guides were quick to respond and made sure that the group stayed together.

    Definitely worth it! My family had an amazing time with Kolo and Kailoa. It was a little tiring for my 8 year old but he managed well. They were friendly, fun and patient with our group. Thanks for providing a memorable experience!
    We loved it!
    JonMichael_C, Apr 2022
    Great snorkel and kayak trip, delightful reef right off shore, the guides were locals who grew up in the area and had a wonderful sense of the history and lore of the area. Not strenuous, appropriate for all ages.

    Family vacay in Kauai
    Jessica_O, Apr 2022
    This was our first time in Kauai and we had a great experience with KH. Words cannot say enough about our guides Kolo and Kailoa, they were the best and treated us like Ohana!! Kolo educated us about the mountains that make up the Hanalei valley, the history of the land, and people of Kauai. They were attentive to our group and kept their eyes on all the kayaks to ensure nobody was getting left behind. My son loved it when Kolo blew the conch to alert the group. We loved the beach snorkeling area and it was perfect for my son’s second time snorkeling. The water was calm and warm, as always. We saw a honu, a moray eel and lots of fish! After we ate lunch, Kolo used his machete to open up a young coconut and also showed us how they used to open a coconut with a rock back in da day. We were treated to try the fresh young coconut juice and fresh coconut meat. It was a very memorable trip and would definitely do it again!! Mahalo nui KH Ohana!! 🤙🏼
    Two thumbs up!
    Fernando_B, Mar 2022
    What an amazing experience!!!! Our tour guide Kolo was phenomenal!!!!! He gave us a true Hawaiian experience from the history, local knowledge, ukulele serenade, coconut hunting and his friendly & funny . He treated us and took care of us like Ohana! He even rescued my cell phone when it fell into the ocean. I love supporting a family owned and operated business. The grounds are clean and beautiful! Everyone is courteous and helpful!! Overall a spectacular experience.
