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.
This is a longer and more challenging hike along the Na Pali Coast to the Hanakapi'ai Falls, the most beautiful waterfall in the park. This trail, which is part of the famous Na Pali Coast Trail, begins at the end of Highway 560 at the Ke'e Lagoon.
Strike out on your own and rent a double kayak and paddle to the Sacred Falls. You will need to car top your rental kayak a short distance from the convenience of the Wailua River Marina location; across the Wailua bridge to the launch area at Kaumuali'i State Park.
This is one of the most satisfying hikes in all of Kaua'i, with ready rewards all along the way. On the lower reaches, you will go through one of the largest groves of stately Norfolk pines growing on the western flanks of this charming mountain.
