If you want to go stand-up paddling or kayaking along the rivers and nature preserves around Hanalei Bay, rent your gear here. They also do guided kayak trips up the Na Pali Coast during summer. One of the biggest and longest-running paddling outfitters on the island, their staff are usually local experts, though sometimes customer service is rushed.Recommended for:

My friends and I rented the kayaks from Napali Kayak. They are one of two local businesses that provide that service. It took quite a lot of effort to call and coordinate with them for the equipment and date reservation. They were friendly the day of the pick-up and drop-off of the equipment at the beach. When they picked us up, our group did a lot of the lifting and loading of the kayaks. By the end of our paddling and kayaking excursion, we were tired and that just added more soreness to our shoulders and back. We did pay extra to have them drop us off at the airport. Other than the not-so-cool extra work we had to do for lifting and loading of the kayaks, I would recommend renting the equipment from them.Recommended for:

The first kayak tour I ever did was Kayak Kauai's Na Pali Coast tour. You launch at Haena Beach County Park and paddle with the current 16 miles along the stunning Na Pali coast. You can stop and visit a cave, paddle with dolphins, and just be part of the amazing Hawaiian Pacific. It's a long trip, but you can paddle in double kayak, and get a boost from the current. Definitely a trip of a lifetime. Be warned, if you're prone to seasickness check the swell height and take some meds. Check with staff to be sure you're a good fit for the trip. If so, go for it.
