Overview

Explore the tropical waters of the Hanalei River and Hanalei Bay on this guided kayak and snorkeling tour. Paddle through the lush tropical surroundings as you make your way down the Hanalei River out into the open Hanalei Bay, where you can glimpse the famous cliffs of Makana Peak (also known as Bali Hai). Snorkel through the marvelous underwater world of the Bay Reef Lagoon, home to sea turtles and brightly colored tropical fish.
  • Guided kayak and snorkel tour of Hanalei River and Bay Reef Lagoon
  • Kayak down the Hanalei River surrounded by lush greenery
  • Snorkel in the pristine turquoise waters of Bay Reef Lagoon and see the tropical fish
  • Look for Hawaiian sea turtles and tropical birds
  • Enjoy spectacular views of Makana Peak as you kayak in Hanalei Bay
Splash into the watery wonders of Hanalei River and Hanalei Bay as you explore some of Kauai’s most picturesque landscapes. Meet your local guide at the departure point near the Hanalei River, and then hop aboard a double kayak and begin your leisurely paddle downriver. Along the way, soak in the peaceful atmosphere and passing scenery of taro fields and tropical forests.

After approximately 45 minutes of kayaking, disembark on the shores of beautiful Hanalei Bay and recharge with a snack break. Admire spectacular views of the bay, made famous by the 1958 film South Pacific, and learn about ancient Hawaiian fire-throwing ceremonies conducted from the dramatic Makana Peak.

Slip on a snorkeling mask and fins, and then dive into the warm turquoise waters of Hanalei’s Bay Reef Lagoon. Explore underwater reef formations and be on the lookout for Hawaiian marine life such as brilliant tropical fish and sea turtles. You’ll also have a chance to ride the gentle waves of the bay on a sea kayak if you like. Finish your 5-hour tour with another short kayak ride and a drive back to the original departure point.

Great Fun! Tour guide Dustin was really nice and informative. Ride to the beach was like an informal history lesson with fun facts,
Kayaking was a bit tougher than expected but my 9, 17,14, and 13 yr olds handled it like pros. Awesome adventure

My boyfriend and I took this tour together and loved every single moment ! I have never been kayaking or snorkeling before so I was a bit nervous to see how things would turn out but Dave and Steve were there to help every step of the way. The tour was a great length and gave enough time to both kayak and snorkel. The kayaking part was not too hard and having one of the tour guides with you was a plus! The Hanalei Bay was beautiful and snorkeling was awesome. The lunch was filling and the fresh pineapple was even better. There was plenty of time for the guides to tell us about Kauai and also recommend some great food choices in the area. Would definitely recommend this to anyone, even if you are a beginner!

The tour was supposed to be ok for beginners but we couldn't make it to the bay for snorkelling the guide said it was because it was too choppy, not too sure. Our guide was nice but didn't give any instruction or tips for kayaking. It wasn't really what we paid for....

This was great fun...the guides were great. I was confused about where to meet, and they were very helpful. Good lessons on ocean kayaking, and great snorkeling. A 72 year old gramma and a 14 year old grandson had a really fun time!

Web was a excellent guide, really knows the waters both ocean and river because he grew up in Kauai. We got to experience both river and ocean kayaking, as well as see an amazing variety of fish snorkeling in beautiful Hanalei Bay. Web is very safety conscious. I highly recommend this tour.

Steve was a great guide - very laid back but also focused on our safety. Lunch was great too. Fresh pineapple cut Oceanside!
