Before you sign up, please be aware…

This is the roughest and longest sea kayak trip offered on the planet. Remember not only is it a 17 mile paddle, but surf launching and landings are often the norm. We usually have surf to negotiate at our take out at Polihale. The wind is a double-edged sword. When the winds don’t cooperate it is a long… long… and for some, a very strenuous day. When the winds are up you will “sail,” down the Coast for a price. These same wind that help, can also agitate the ocean and when accompanied by a ground swell,can make your kayak harder to manage with consequent “flip overs” the norm. If you flip over, will you “flip-out?”

This is not a “beginners” sea kayak tour. If you are having trouble handling your kayak you may be asked to exit 30 to 45 minutes at the Ke’e exit point.

Another companion of rough seas is sea sickness. Sea sickness is our #1 malady and is a real concern. There is no refund if we pull you out for “blowing chunks.” A seasick person does not paddle very well and can hamper an expedition.

For many experienced sea kayakers, they find the water off the Na Pali Coast to be generally some of the biggest waters that they have paddled. We have had many paddlers bail out because the seas were intimidating; over their heads; so to speak.

As with sea sickness… there is no refund for the above mentioned scenarios.
