Make your way to Port Allen Marina to meet your captain and crew, and climb aboard a rigid-hull inflatable raft. With a maximum of 14 passengers, it’s an intimate ride. Cruise away from civilization and toward the towering spires and deep emerald valleys of Kauai’s Na Pali Coast. This 16-mile (26-kilometer) stretch of coast is so jagged that no roads traverse it, so you get the best views from the water. The raft’s speed and size make it possible to dart in and out of sea caves and beneath waterfalls for a perspective that larger boats can't offer (weather conditions permitting). It also allows access to Nu‘alolo Kai, one of the best reefs in Kauai, where you stop to snorkel among colorful coral gardens teaming with tropical fish (conditions permitting). Throughout the cruise, keep an eye out for larger marine life, such as spinner dolphins and sea turtles, too. Lunch is served with chips, cookies and soft drinks.

This trip was outstanding, well worth the money - our crew were awesome (Matt and Matt) they made it really fun, worked hard to show us dolphins and get us right into the caves. The waves were insane, but the driver was so great that i was never worried. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone that likes the water - be mindful that if you get motion sickness, this is likely not a great trip for you. I would 1000% do this trip again! Teenagers also loved it - so great for a family trip!

We had a fabulous time. The scenery was incredible. Our Captain Sky did a great job safely traversing us through bumpy waters. CJ was a great guide, and made sure we all had a terrific time. We saw dolphins in the first 5 minutes, and some huge sea turtles. The snorkeling was in a very pretty spot. The waters were calm on the way out, but choppy for our return. I sat in front, and had a wild ride. Those in the back enjoyed a smoother ride.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, and I wish they told us beforehand!
If you are prone to motion sickness, take something before you get on the boat. By the time they tell you, the group is already walking to the raft.
Your shoes don't matter! You take them off before you get in the boat, and put them in the dry bag they provide for you.
They provide a dry bag large enough for a regular size back pack, but you don't really need anything but sunscreen, a towel, and a camera. Lighten your load!
Your sunglasses need a strap. Buy one before you get there, or you'll shell out $20 for one of theirs. I need my glasses to see, but a lot of people were not wearing sunglasses. I would recommend them.
Leave the hat in the car. They will recommend a hat clip (they sell those too.) You go too fast for it to stay on your head unless it has a string. People either spent an hour trying to keep them on their heads or turned them around, so they didn't block the sun. Look at the pictures, people aren't wearing hats unless the boat isn't moving.
Wear a long sleeve shirt, jacket, or cover up. It gets chilly when you're flying through the ocean.
They provide a snack, drinks, water, a sandwich, and chips. Unless you are very picky, you don't need to bring anything to eat or drink.
Enjoy!

Captain Matt and his assistant Noah made this thrilling raft ride up the Na Pali Coast an unforgettable experience for our family. We saw three different pods of dolphins and Captain Matt took us right to them where we got amazing pictures and video. The coast was breathtaking in the early morning hours and we went in several sea caves. Even though the sea waves were huge on our ride back, we never doubted Captain Matt's skills, and we were highly entertained by Noah's singing skills and song choices. SO MUCH FUN!! My teens all said it was their favorite day on Kauai. (Just be sure to take some Dramamine if you have any motion sickness issues, and wear sunglasses to help keep the ocean spray out of your eyes ;)

Loved the rafting trip around Napali coast! We went in April near the end of winter season - so it was still pretty choppy, but JR was able to steer us into that famous open ceiling sea cave, the snorkeling was awesome (several sea turtles and lots of fish) and we saw large groups of spinner dolphins and bottlenose dolphins! And JR and Noah kept us laughing the whole time. It was well worth the price and the 1+ hour drive from Princeville to Port Allen at 5:30am while on vacation. That's saying a lot for someone who's really not a morning person!

The NaPali coast is the most beautiful coastline in the world and our guides, CJ and Ian made this adventure one we will never forget! The day started with 2 separate spinner dolphin encounters, complete with aerial acrobatics and then surfing the wake of the boat beside us. From there we explored a few sea caves, saw a beautiful rainbow at the bottom of a waterfall, and toured the coastline for miles. Both guides would tell tales (with a curated soundtrack, no less!) of the history of the area and loads of interesting facts. For lunch, we landed on the NaPali State Beach area (they are one of only 3 groups permitted to do so), met the NaPali ohana, ate lunch, then snorkeled the reef in front of us. It was like swimming in an aquarium. From there we packed up for the ride back, with a couple extra stops along the way. They said the waves can be rough on the way back, but we had relatively calm seas. Again, the soundtrack Ian put together had everyone on the boat singing and dancing in their seats. 10/10 would recommend.

This was one of the best experiences we had during our entire trip to Hawaii. Captain JR (Junya) and Gabe were such amazing hosts and have us such a great history of the island and the Na’pali coast line. They kept us laughing throughout with some of the worst jokes we have heard in a while and also shared wonderful stories of their trips. Would definitely recommend using this service as you can tour through the insides of the caves which would be otherwise inaccessible in a larger boat. Overall highly recommend!

Captain Sky is very experienced and managed to seamlessly steer amid rough ocean conditions. Our guide was ok but didn’t do much beyond small talk and handing out food - the captain was the one distributing facts about Na Pali. The snorkeling site was better than expected, with quite a lot of fish variety. However, we were called back to the boat quickly and didn’t even get to snorkel for half an hour. Lastly, the lady at the front desk was not friendly at all. Overall, it’s a memorable experience and I’d recommend the trip to anyone who doesn’t get easily seasick and would like to experience Kauai’s coast from the water.

Highlight of the trip once again. This was our third time in 20 years going to Nepali with Kauai Sea Tours and would highly recommend them. Dolphins, whales, snorkeling and the grand Napoli - almost too much to take in. Shaked and Drake were incredibly knowledgeable of the Hawaiian traditions and history along the coast line which provided great context to the experience. Shaked performed perfect navigation through the sea caves including the open air cave.

The rafts handle incredibly in big seas and wind chop. You will get wet, you will be in rough seas, you will have to hang on tight at points in time but that’s the reason why you go on the trip vs. a Mai Tai cruise. We had teens and our 9 and 11 year old and they did great.

CJ and Amber did an amazing job guiding us through the tour and we had no surprises in what we were getting ourselves into. I highly recommend people taking this tour understand that they’re going to be on a raft in the Pacific Ocean. It’s going to be bumpy and you’re going to feel it both during and after the tour. That being said, Amber was an awesome captain and we felt we were in the safest hands out there. We saw a lot of spinner dolphins, turtles and puffer fish, and of coarse the beautiful Na’Pali coast. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who’s comfortable on the water and wants an awesome view of the coast. CJ and Amber were a great team that gave us great information on the Coast’s history and ocean life facts as well.

Shout out to Ian and Noah- this was an amazing experience from start to finish. Their attitude was infectious and we all had a wonderful time! Ian had some wonderful facts about the coast, the sealife, the history and customs of the island and their people, and even some movie trivia! Not to mention his music really set the mood and was a great accompaniment to the views! Noah was so funny, extremely useful and was probably the best hype man I’ve ever seen. Between the both of them, we laughed the whole time, sang our hearts out, and took in the beautiful scenery.
Would 10/10 recommend this tour to anyone visiting- request Ian and Noah- you won’t be disappointed!
