Overview
Discover one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world on a 3.5-hour Na Pali sunset dinner cruise. This natural wonder of dramatic scenery and colors is best seen from the water. As you travel along the Na Pali Coast, take in its cathedral cliffs, ancient lava tubes, sea caves, and waterfalls, and enjoy a locally made dinner on board as you watch the scene change with the setting sun. Celebrate the evening with a Champagne toast, and sip other drinks like mai tais, island juices, beer, and wine. It's a great way to start any night on Kauai.

    Na Pali Coast
    Stop: 3 hours -
    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.

Highlights
  • Capture gorgeous sunset photos of the Na Pali Coast
  • Choosing a catamaran means a more stable ride
  • Chance to see sea turtles, dolphins, and whales
  • Enjoy beer, wine, fresh juice, and mai tais
What to Expect
Grab a jacket and make your way to the Port Allen marina to board a 65-foot (20-meter) power catamaran for the scenic trip to the Na Pali Coast, which wraps 16 miles (26 kilometers) around Kauai’s northwestern edge. Watch for sea turtles and dolphins as you cruise, with the chance to see whales during the migration season of December through April. Drinks, Champagne, and appetizers will be served as you approach the Na Pali Coast’s jagged cliffs and valleys, and as the sunset turns the coast a rosy hue. Enjoy dinner on the boat, then begin the return trip to the Punta Allen marina, traveling back along the coast for an entirely different perspective. This Na Pali Coast dinner cruise concludes at the original departure point.

Worth it except subject to the weather, and this is not weather you wanna mess with. So since there were 40 mph winds and significant seas, our captain opted out of going around to the Na Pali coast. So we cruised around on the south coast. Eh scenery. But a good # of
