Discover the wild wonders of Kauai’s Na Pali Coast on an exciting combo adventure. Cruise alongside magnificent jagged peaks and dart in and out of sea caves aboard a motorized raft. Stop to snorkel among sea turtles and tropical fish, and explore the archaeological ruins of a 12th-century fishing village. Enjoy a hot, beachside buffet lunch while surrounded by spectacular scenery.
What to Expect
The towering cathedral spires and emerald valleys of the Na Pali Coast are best seen from the water. Begin your adventure in Kekaha, where you’ll meet your captain and crew and climb aboard a motorized raft. The speed and small size of this vessel allows the flexibility to cruise close to shore, traveling in and out of sea caves and under waterfalls (weather permitting).

Disembark on the remote beach at Nualolo Kai, site of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village that dates back 800 years. Explore the archaeological ruins with your guide, then splash into the mellow, clear waters of the Pacific for a refreshing swim. Gear up with a provided mask and fins to snorkel among a coral reef system where you might spot colorful fish and sea turtles.

When hunger strikes, dig into a hot, delicious buffet lunch/dinner on the beach featuring island favorites like teriyaki chicken, kalua pork, salad and sweet pineapple bars on our summer sails.  During winter sails, your lunch will include smoked turkey, ham, a salami sandwich, chips and chocolate chip cookies.  Enjoy the exhilarating ride back to the departure point, where your 6-hour tour concludes.
