Na Pali Coast can be kayaked by individuals or with a commercial group. Due to unpredictable and potentially unsafe ocean conditions, kayaking is only allowed between May 15 and September 7. The 15 mile trip is best done by starting at Ha'ena and paddling with the prevailing currents and trade winds to Polihale Beach. The Kalalau Valley and Miloli'i are the only two legal landing sites for kayakers, both offer camping by a permit. Between May 15 and Labor Day, day only landing permits are not required. You should be a strong swimmer in excellent condition to make this endeavor. Acquire the proper provisions, check the ocean conditions and arrange for a ride before setting out into the waves. - AsNotedIn
