Kayak Kauai

Kayak Kauai Outbound is one of the original kayak and adventure companies found on Kauai and specializes in kayaking, hiking and surfing. The owners and originators of the company are the Cuban born brothers Micco and Chino Godinez. They actually began their business with kayak tours in the early eighties after having undertaken a three week kayak adventure of their own in which they traveled the entire length of the state of Hawaii from the Big Island to Kauai. That trip sparked their enthusiasm for sharing the world of kayaking with others and Kayak Kauai Outbound was born. Shortly afterwards they expanded their successful operation to include hiking tours and surf lessons. They are now one of the most respected adventure tour operators on Kauai and have received recognition in National Geographic Magazine, the Honolulu Star Bulletin, Men's Journal and many others. Their Kayak tour offerings are many and vary in length and difficulty. The beautiful Hanalei River provides the setting for one of its many tours and this tour includes both a river kayaking experience and a kayak snorkel in the waters off Hanalei Bay. The Wailua River in the Kapaa area is not exempt either from the paddle kayaks of Kayak Kauai Outbound. These tours not only involve kayaking but also hiking to a beautiful waterfall known as Secret Falls. If you're really looking for adventure and are fit enough to handle about six-hours of paddling you simply have to go with them on a magical journey along Kauai's famous Na Pali Coast. This tour covers about seventeen miles of coastline and involves surf launching and landings as well as hiking.
