Cruise Ship Passengers
The Secret Falls Kayak is available in the afternoon of day one for NCL passengers and requires a cab ride of about 15 minutes, or we can arrange a rental car including shuttle pickup at the dock.
The Blue Lagoon Kayak does not work with cruise ship itineraries.
Most Kauai kayak tours in Hawaii is done on the ocean, which at times can be rough and at other times can be downright dangerous. Kauai offers the unique opportunity to kayak NEAR the ocean on jungle waterways. This makes for a safe, tranquil outing … and an opportunity to absorb the sights, sounds, and smells of the rain forest from a unique perspective.
Never kayaked before? No worries … it isn’t difficult at all to get the hang of it. All the instruction that you need is provided. It doesn’t take a tremendous amount of effort to paddle … you’ll be surprised at how easily you move through calm waters with very gentle strokes.
Both of these tours are OK with children … they don’t have a minimum age per se; parents know their kids and their capabilities. As a general rule, these tours are fine for anyone who is of average health and is comfortable in and around the water.
Just a word of caution. River kayaking is a popular activity … some companies are better than others … and some lure you with discounts to get you to attend timeshare tours. We book with Kayak Kauai because they are the best. In the summertime they even outfit ocean kayak expeditions to the rugged and wild Na Pali coastline. This fine company was recently featured on the cover of National Geographic Adventure magazine.
