Na Pali Maverick Application


2023 Na Pali Sea Kayak Camping Season

May 15 thru  September 9


Aloha,

Thank you for choosing Kayak Kaua’i to help realize your Na Pali Coast paddling dream or if you are paddling it again…welcome back!

We can do all that you ask.

We are offering both the Traditional route from the more challenging North shore of Ha’ena and also  “mellower” South-West  Polihale approach. 

After 39 year of pioneering and offering this service we feel guiding regardless of experience, is the way to go. 

If going with a guide is an issue, STOP, you don’t need to go further.

Guiding Insures:

  1. Safety
  2. Malama/caring  & Respect of the natural resource
  3. Interpretation

Further know that for safety we deny service to those who BMI (Body Mass Index) registers as obese.

Here is a link to determine if you qualify: CDC Adult BMI Calculator

We don’t  guide kids under 16 years; come back later when they can paddle you!

Below is our custom group Maverick application form.

Please fill it out to the best of your ability so that we will have a better idea of who you are, your group’s level of experience, conditions paddled, etc and how best we can help you and your group with your sea kayak expedition.

We will count on you to ensure that everyone in your group is up to the rigors and challenges of paddling this rugged and beautiful coastline.

Paddling Na Pali is not for everyone. It is physically taxing and everyone in your group should be fit enough to complete the journey.

Once it has been submitted we will get back with a cost quote.

A hui hou,

Micco

    Cancellation Policy

    Kayak Kauai observes a firm 24 hour cancellation policy. Any cancellations within 24 hours will receive no refund;(All Na Pali Coast kayaking tours or GROUPS of 6 or more require a 48 hour cancellation notice). Cancellations made by Kayak Kauai due to inclement weather conditions are 100% refundable.

    Travel Insurance

    Safety is no accident and on every tour we pay special attention to this fact. That said, travel insurance is not a bad idea, especially if a “dark cloud” decides to follow you. Find a company that offers medical, security evacuation and rescue services in the event of a medical or security emergency.
