Kauai Whale Watching Kayak Tour
Take a kayak tour of Kauai’s scenic South Shore from Poipu to Port Allen. A total of eight miles long, in what typically becomes rough seas by late morning. You make three different surf landings on seldom-seen beaches throughout the tour. After taking off from Kukuiula Small Boat Harbor, you paddle the waters off our Hawaiian Island and at 45 minutes in you make your first beach landing at Lawai Kai where you can enjoy some coffee and muffins as you stroll the beach.
Next, you continue downwind hoping to see some marine life such as turtles and spinner dolphins. Humpback whales are possible to be seen between the months of November through April. After seven miles of paddling, you stop and enjoy some lunch at the Wahi’awa bay. Swim, snorkel, and play until we depart around mid-afternoon for another brief paddle, and a driver arrives to whisk you back to the Poipu resort area.
