Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Considered one of the most beautiful landscapes in Hawaii and often called the ‘eighth natural wonder of the world,’ Kauai’s Napali Coast stretches for 16 spectacular miles (26 km) along the island’s northwestern shore and is best viewed from the water. Your experience begins at Port Allen Marina, where you board a 65-foot (20-meter) state-of-the-art catamaran and meet your friendly captain and crew.

Get comfortable among the vessel’s open-air cabins or outside decks, and enjoy a champagne toast and appetizers as you cruise along the coastline characterized by jagged sea cliffs stretching as high as 4,000 feet (1,200 meters). Keep your camera handy for fantastic views of the spires, along with waterfalls, secluded beaches and passing marine life like sea turtles, spinner dolphins, and whales (during December-April migratory season).

While cruising, enjoy a delicious island-inspired dinner complete with your choice of beer, wine, tropical Mai Tais, and fresh juices. As the sun dips toward the horizon, watch the shifting colors and shadows play across the landscape in a vibrant natural light show. Bring a light jacket and expect to get slightly wet on this unforgettable sunset experience.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Na Pali Coast
A spectacular landscape of towering, jagged cliffs plunging into emerald valleys and the blue expanse of the Pacific, the Na Pali Coast is inaccessible by car, so the best way to see it is from the water.   One of the fastest touring boats on Kauai, your catamaran offers comfortable seating both inside and out, with a mix of deck space and open-air cabins. Soak up the scenery as your captain takes you along the coast, and keep an eye out for marine life such as spinner dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. On board, enjoy provided drinks, appetizers, and a locally made buffet style dinner.  Expect to get wet, and bring a lightweight jacket. The landscape will change with the setting sun, as the slanting light bathes the cliffs in the rosy hues of sunset.

Loved it!

Amazing trip! The boat was nice and clean and plenty big for a large group. The captain and staff were super friendly and kind. They provided really good drinks (I’ve done similar tours in the Caribbean where they serve generic cola and cheap liquor), craft beer, wine and a few cocktails. The views were stunning and the weather was perfect! The food was served part way through the trip and was pretty decent. We were so nervous about getting motion sickness but we were surprisingly fine considering it was pretty choppy on the way out. I would recommend not dressing up too much since you have to take off your shoes and you get splashed with sea water at times. We got super lucky and saw a pod of spinner dolphins on the way back. I would not recommend if you’re not very steady on your feet.

The Perfect Kauai Experience

The Na Pali Sunset & Sightsee Dinner Cruise is a must when in Kauai! We ended up choosing to cruise on our last day in Hawaii and it was the perfect way to end our vacation. The Na Pali coast is even more impressive up close than what you see in photos. Dinner was delicious and the champagne toast during sunset was the perfect way to end the day! The cherry on top was having the opportunity to see dolphins swim up next to the boat, as well as spotted eagle rays playing! I do have to give a shout out to Jess (I believe that's her name). She could recognize when someone wasn't feeling well and was quick to respond to help them through it. The entire crew was friendly and attentive! My party felt very well taken care of while cruising on the coast of Kauai. If you're contemplating whether to do this cruise or not, don't think twice and do it!

We had a great experience with this team! On our way to the dock, there was a traffic accident and caused a 30 min delay. We kept in touch with the office and they were extremely courteous throughout. The captain delayed the departure a bit since >20 people were late bc of the traffic and the office reassured us they would issue full refunds if we did not arrive before departure. We ended up making it just in time, with the office staff escorting us down the pier. The boat itself was clean and seaworthy. A little smaller than I had imagined (60 foot catamaran). It had been raining on and off that day so the waters were definitely choppy (a couple people got seasick) but the crew kept everyone updated on our travel route/conditions and were ready at a moments notice with ginger chews, ice chips, as well as snacks and drinks for those of us tolerating the water better. On the way out we came across a couple pods or dolphins, which came right up next to the boat for photo ops. Once we reached our final point we turned around and began a leisurely return (much smoother ride), filled with magnificent views of the Na Pali coast and lots of rainbows. The captain and crew had helpful tour guide narration for the various areas we passed by. Plenty of great picture opportunities and the crew happily snapped shots for everyone aboard. Dinner was buffet style and plentiful. Everything was tasty with a Hawaiian twist - kahlua pork, teriyaki chicken, soba noodles. Finally wrapped things up with a champagne toast. Because of the clouds it wasn’t too much of a sunset but easy to imagine how nice the views would be on a clear evening . Overall a fantastic experience. Beautiful views, friendly and professional crew, plentiful food and drink. Would caution people who are prone to seasickness as the ride can be bumpy but otherwise strongly recommend the experience

We had great weather for our cruise and despite chop on the way out, we had a smooth ride back in and a beautiful sunset. The NaPali Coast is one of the most beautiful places on earth IMHO. The Captain and crew will take good care of you. Highly recommend going out with Holo Holo Charters. Would not hesitate to do another trip with them.

The Rollercoaster ride to Napali coast was so good that we all got wet. And the close look to the cave gave us a cherishing memory to go. Jay and Erin were our hosts with infinte wine and beer and delicious lunch and then brownie as dessert. A must do activity if u are not seasick and want to get wet if standing outside the cabin
