Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Kauai’s Na Pali Coast is a dramatic, 16-mile (26-km) stretch of jagged cliffs and emerald valleys along the island’s northwestern shore. The best way to view the spectacular scenery is from the water. Begin your adventure at Port Allen Marina Center, where you meet your friendly captain and crew. After a safety briefing and storage of your personal items in a dry bag, hop aboard a 14-person inflatable, motorized raft.

Your nimble vessel allows the group to get close to the shore and dart in and out of sea caves and under waterfalls (weather permitting). As you cruise along the coast, your crew shares information and legends about the landscape and help you spot passing marine life such as dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. Don a provided snorkeling mask and fins, then splash into the clear waters at Nu‘alolo Kai to explore one of the best coral reefs in Kauai.

Take a break partway through the tour for an onboard picnic of a gourmet sandwich, fresh tropical fruit, chips, and cookies. Beverages are provided throughout the journey so you stay hydrated.

Your coastal adventure concludes back at Port Allen.

A must experience
, Sep 2021
Was a little hesitant about going because we had never snorkeled before. But if you’re a decent swimmer you get used to it and feel comfortable. The raft ride was amazing and the views of the coast is worth the admission itself. CJ the tour guide and Ian the captain. What can I say. These guys are the best. I hope everyone would get as lucky as us and have them two on the tour.

What a blast!

What a blast! Our guide Landen and captain Drake were caring, fun and knowledgeable. They made the experience unforgettable! The views, caves and snorkling were amazing. I highly recommend! If you have motion sickness, make sure to take medication prior to leave. That’s what I did and I spent a fabulous day! :)
An adventure you’ll never forget
, Sep 2021
This was the highlight of our trip to Kauai. Landen and captain Drake made this adventure even more special with their culture knowledge of the island and it’s history. Being on a small raft allowed us to weave in and out of caves, and get an up close and intimate view of the coast. Both my friend and I agreed the views of the coastline were the most dramatic and break taking landscape we’ve seen in our entire lives.
Awesome trip!
, Sep 2021
It was an amazing trip. We saw a lot of dolphins and the Na Pali coast was beautiful. The caves were amazing as well. Our captain Drake was awesome as well as Landon.
The Majesty of the pali and the coolest small kine jokers
, Sep 2021
The stories about ancient hawaiians that lived in the several valleys of the Pali. Both guides were extremely accommodating, friendly and entertaining. Would do it again!
Amazing Day
, Sep 2021
Great bucket list trip.Despite very bumpy seas, captain gave us a great ride, very safe. Getting into the sea caves was well worth the long ride to the cliffs, an experience we’ll never forget. Be prepared as it’s a long ride and you will be sore the next day. Lots of good commentary from the team about the area. Got to see turtles too!
Amazing Na Pali Tour
, Sep 2021
Captian Ian was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Na Pali which was a great extra treat! CJ was super helpful and friendly which kept the atmosphere flowing. Conditions were amazing as we explored numerous caves, rode along the dolphins, snorkel with various fish and a turtle, and even spotted a tiger shark! Was the best tour we experienced on the island!
Awesome experience
