Departing from our launch are on the Heritage river of Hanalei, we paddle down the calm idyllic and scenic Hanalei river out to Hanalei Bay with magnificent panoramic views to the west of Makana Peak (better known as Bali Hai).
To the south , views of the fluted ridges of Namolokama, Mamalahoa, and Hihimanu peak, which lie like silent sentinels whose waterfalls, drop gourds of water into the verdant valley of Wai'oli, which lies behind the town of Hanalei.
As you paddle out the Hanalei river mouth you will pass the historic Hanalei Pier, so important to the early agricultural economy of the North Shore.
Depending on sea conditions (generally summer) and group dynamics, we can paddle west along the perimeter of the sandy shores of Hanalei Bay and portage and paddle into the lovely waters of Wai'oli stream.
Given time or inclination, we can also/instead venture to the East and paddle towards Ani'ni and land at the picturesque sandy beach of Hideaways, for some great snorkeling or surf kayaking off shore.
We often see sea turtles and dolphins accompanied often by the avian antics of such birds as the Boobie and Layson Albatrosses. Shore birds and river birds such as the Wandering Tattler, Gallinule and Black Capped night heron are often seen.
With lunch included we have time to do it all: from blue water paddling to snorkeling, bird watching, beach combing, exploring some tide pools and caves, ...all during a memorable day of sea and river kayaking.
During winter sometimes part of the Bay can be off limits to paddling due to high surf; during those occasions we will spend more time exploring the upper reaches of the Hanalei River.
Rated: Family friendly for the bit hardier family, couples and others.
