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.

Wow this was amazing

This is not for the light hearted, But I know what I signed up for! Unlike other boat tours, this one can get you super close to the caves and cliffs of the coast and provides an adventurous fun ride. It’s rough but worth it! Once in a life time experience. Ian and JR were awesome and very experienced. We saw 2 different types of dolphins, turtles, whales, and flying fish! It was an incredible time. Would definitely recommend

Our family had a wonderful time! The weather was beautiful and we were able to go through the tunnels and see the entire coast. Thanks to our amazing captain Amber and her partner Matt for making our experience extra special. We Highly recommend this tour if you're in Kauai.

Fantastic experience we will never forget! Our two Captains, Ian and JR, continuously watched over us for safety, were friendly and knowledgeable about the wildlife and area, and their skill at piloting the zodiac was outstanding! We stopped to view whales, dolphins (while eating our lunch!), and turtles. The up close views of Na Pali were mesmerizing! The ending snorkel time finalized one of the best tours we have ever taken!!!! We are 79 and 83 and enjoyed it as much as the younger folks!!

Awesome experience!
, Apr 2021
Our family did this tour with 2 friends and all 6 of us absolutely loved it. The Napali Coast is breathtaking and the nimble boat and expert captain allow you to get very close to to rocky crags and sea caves. Speaking of the captain, Amber was extremely skilled and told us lots of interesting stories about the area drawing from her degree in Hawaiian history. Matt, the tour facilitator was also great! He was gregarious and knowledgeable and clearly wanted to make sure that everyone was having a good time. We saw plenty of dolphins, a few turtles and the snorkeling at the end of the trip was fantastic. There is a little shade on the boat but bring your sunscreen!

One of the most amazing experiences of my life! The guides were amazing! Lots of sea life including a pod of spinner dolphins! Thank you!
Too much chaff, not enough wheat

The pilot and the guide did a great job. I enjoyed the caves. However, I found that for the money, there wasn't much content. Much of the trip was getting from point A to B in an uncomfortable way. It felt like paying for a full course dinner and getting a very good snack that took a very long time to come: you end up feeling taken. But the guides were great.
Best tour in Kauai

Skipper and guide were fun, attentive and knowledgeable about history. Waves were incredible, views spectacular and snorkeling saw beautiful vivid fish. Best tour around.
