A woman died after the kayak that she and her friend were in capsized this morning on the Napali Coast.

The woman was thrown against the rocks, hitting her head and then disappearing into the surf.

Her friend survived, and was able to get assistance from a family who was on a Zodiac nearby, which took both the unresponsive woman and her friend to Kee Beach.

They were met by emergency services, who attempted CPR without success.

She was pronounced dead at Wilcox Hospital
