Excellent guides (Web and Dan) who were professional yet very fun and dynamic. The primary tour guide was insanely knowledgeable and has been at this for a long time. As described in the details this is an active paddle. Conditions change quickly but you're rewarded with great views, an awesome private beach lunch spot and what feels like an ocean to yourself. In the winter the conditions are a bit different and they launch at Poipo and end at Port Allen. I would trust them any time of year and anywhere they told us to go.

Web was our guide for this tour and the Hanalei Bay tour and he was informative and funny. He was I sevant and always checking in with everyone to see how they were doing and taking breaks as necessary. The sea kayaking was challenging and definitely not something you want to attempt for your first time. We loved it!

About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Poipu, Poipu, Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii

Whale Watch & Snorkel by Sea Kayak
Check In: 8:30 a.m.

During the winter the gently rolling South coast becomes a favorite for sea kayakers. You'll paddle the same canoe paths of old taken by early Polynesians and whaling captains.

We will begin the day's journey on the Golden coast of Kaua'i at Po'ipu and paddle west along the rugged and scenic shoreline that is home to the Spouting Horn, the remote Lawai Valley, the unusual Nomilo Pond, and the cove of Wahi'awa.

Winter is the season for Humpback Whales and often the highlight of the voyage. After their long journey from Alaska each year, these gentle giants delight themselves in the warm Hawaiian waters for a season of birthing and frolicking.

Delight yourself likewise, as these whales breach before you , or more likely spot Spinning dolphins, Flying fish, and Green sea turtles. With luck we sometimes see the endangered Monk Seal in the water or a sunny beach. Bird watch for Boobies, Frigate , and Tropic birds from your cockpit.

Get wet and snorkel off one of Kauai's finest shores, where the sea and bird life compliments a day of splendid paddling. At day's end we will have you back to your hotel or back to our shop late afternoon.
