Na Pali Snorkel Adventure

Are you looking for a Napali Coast sightseeing and snorkeling adventure departing from Hanalei Bay? Look no further! We’re the only company on Kauai permitted to operate raft boat tours from Kauai’s iconic north shore and we’d be stoked to take you out on a wet and wild ocean excursion. Within minutes of departing, we’ll be into the heart and soul of the sacred, historical, and stunning Napali Coast, keeping our eyes peeled for Hawaiian spinner dolphins, turtles, and sea birds. Our boats are small enough to maneuver into sea caves and under waterfalls, and powerful enough to do so safely and with confidence. With forward-facing seating, bathrooms, and a fresh-water shower, our vessels offer more creature comfort than many other raft-style boats. We’ll learn about the coast, swim, snorkel, relax, eat sandwiches, and just generally bask in the glory of the Napali Coast. Join us on this convenient four-hour ocean excursion that wastes no time and packs maximum action into every moment.
