Captain Kamu

Native Kauai’ian, Hawai’i Capt. Kamuela promises to provide a safe, fun, and adventurous outing based over 35 years of experience on the Napali Coast. Also very important, though, is that Kamuela and his family was born and raised on the Kauai Coast, which they spent most summers boating, rafting and hiking into – Nualolo Kai, Miloli’i Valley, Kalalau Valley, All of North shore & Hanalei Bay, Kauai. His family heritage brings with him the type of authentic Kaua’i knowledge and history that can greatly enhance not only your tour of the coast but also your entire stay on this island.

Capt. Kamuela and his family have put in years of traditional history restoring, preserving, conserving and education on the archaeological sites of the Napali coast without the need of non-profit organizations. It is part of the ethics of their Hawai’ian stewardship philosophies. You have come a long, long way to Kaua’i to see and learn some amazing things about this natural and secluded environmental monument that you can’t find on the world-wide web.  You will also share his families love of the water, whom are avid surfers, spear divers, traditional fishermen, shoreline gatherers, long-liners, kite surfers, canoe racing, biologist, culturalists, Polynesian sailors/ Modern sailors and scuba divers.

Captain Malia

The Captain

Kapena Malia

Native Kauai’ian, Hawai’i Capt. Malia has  over 25 years of experience on the Napali Coast and other coastal waters. She  spent most summers boating and rafting into Nualolo Kai, Miloli’i Valley, hiked Kalalau Valley, and all of North shore & Hanalei Bay, Kauai. Her niche for memorizing authentic Kaua’i knowledge and history is an acquired skill need by Hawai’ian philosophies. “You need both feet and hands to do things out here. You can’t write while grappling a fish (at my size), paddling a surfboard or do anything with natures suprises. You’ll end up lost or building a new path, which can be a good thing.”

Through her travels off sea, she continues to return every year to help preserve traditional history, restoring, conserving and with her mentors through education. On the archaeological sites, she’s been through out the Polynesian and Pacific Islands giving a little of her helping hand.

She is one of the families avid surfers,  traditional fisher…err women, scuba/diver,  botanist, culturalists, modern sailing, Polynesian outrigger and sailor . If not there, she’s finding a spring or waterfall in the valleys of Kaua’i with her newborn Captain Zhaleb Temana Kaikoa Tamawailualanimotu.
