Wow! 40 YEARS!

In 2024 we are celebrating 40 years of blessings, thanks to past client who have become friends.

It all started while two brothers were paddling the Alaskan Inside Passage.

In 1980, Micco and Chino Godinez paddled Seattle to Skagway Alaska. During that 5 month expedition, they logged more than 1,000 miles. They paddled, talked, and yes, even argued about starting Kayak Kauai which after a few more big adventures, they founded four years later.

The Founders of Kayak KauaiSince then the brothers have sea kayaked the entire Hawaiian chain from the Big Island to Niihau, and paddled, camped, hiked, surfed, stand up paddled, and snorkeled much of the emerald island. They have explored Kauai’s peaks and valleys, canyons, rivers and coastlines, and have come to love its many faces and moods and look forward to sharing these same adventures with you.

Micco and Chino never tire of turning visitors on to the technicolor splendor of Kauai’s majesty, where giant green sea turtles drift amid darting neon streaks of tangs and wrasses. Off the beaten track, afoot or afloat; they love these latitudes and it shows in the relaxed attitudes of the staff.
