A man and woman was airlifted to safety Friday afternoon after their kayak overturned in waters off Nualolo Valley on the Napali Coast.

First responders conducted a search shortly after 3 o’clock in the Nualolo area after a kayak was reported adrift. After initially scanning the ocean, they found the couple in the water waving for help.

The couple, visiting from Seattle, reported that they were okay and stranded in Nualolo for a few days due to extreme surf conditions.

The visitors were flown aboard Air-1 to the landing zone at Kee Beach and released at the scene.
