Overview
Discover the spectacular scenery and old Hawaiian legends of the Napali Coast on a half-day snorkeling cruise from Hanalei Bay. Speed through the water and get close to the dramatic emerald cliffs, beaches and sea caves on a rigid-hull inflatable raft while a captain shares the history and myths of this rugged coast, accessible only by boat. Splash into protected, crystal-clear waters to snorkel among native fish and coral, and recharge with a sandwich lunch back on board. 
What to Expect

Tour Kauai’s Na Pali Coast aboard a High Speed Raft.

The adventure begins when you leave from the shore of scenic Hanalei Bay and we shuttle you by dinghy to your rigid hull inflatable raft which is anchored just offshore. There, you’ll do a “dry-transfer”, stow your gear, grab a seat and get ready for the experience of a lifetime.

Minutes after leaving the bay, the spectacular Na Pali Coast comes into view and you see why its dramatic cliffs and beaches have enchanted painters, authors and travelers for centuries… and we’re just getting started!

As we travel down the coast, your crew and Captain entertain your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once made this coast their home. From sea-level you really get a feel for the tremendous scale of Na Pali. Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles and seabirds which are often seen on our tours.

Depending on the ocean conditions the day of your raft tour, we’ll stop and snorkel at one of several protected and shallow areas which will be teeming with tropical fish. Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses if you need them), snorkels, and flotation aids are all provided. If you’re new to snorkeling, our crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure.

After you have a chance to snorkel and relax on the Na Pali Coast, we’ll serve a tasty sandwich lunch before we head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay. Expect to get wet and bring a lightweight jacket.

The Na Pali Snorkel Adventure was so much fun!

We went on the 7:30 AM excursion on June 23rd. Captain Dale and his mate Alakai'i were awesome guides. Considerate, funny, and knowledgeable. Being able to scoot into caves and under waterfalls was awesome, but unlike going on a zodiac, it was actually comfortable. The...More

Na Pali rocks (literally! :-) )

We had two kids, a teen and my wife and I, leaving Hanalei bay on June 26. Checkin was ok. Had to sign the obligatory waivers. Might be more efficient if this was offered ahead of time, online possibly. They offered ponchos and reef safe...More

Stunning Views!!

This tour was a standout! The ability to see the Na Pali Coast up close from the water, to explore caves, to see dolphins and see turtles.....all on a comfortable raft with an informative and helpful crew. We absolutely loved it.
