Experience the Majestic NaPali Coast

3 Tours Daily

4 hour tours, "Early Bird" 7:30am-11:30am -"Photo Favorite" 12:30pm-4:30pm

2 Hour "Evening Tour" 5:15pm-7:15pm

Departing from Hanalei Bay, sightseeing and snorkeling the majestic Na Pali Coast is the experience of a lifetime. Established in 1972, Na Pali Catamaran has a perfect safety score as well as a new 35' Power Catamaran. Offering shade and protection, the Kamahele Kai II is powerful, spacious and comfortable. Because Kamahele Kai II has no sail, we take you into many secret and sacred sea caves while introducing you to dolphins, sea turtles and seasonal Humpback whales along the way. Kamahele Kai II is built to carry 24, but we limit our passenger count to 18, allowing us to snorkel Kauai's world renown Nualolo State Park!! Na Pali Catamaran offers both 2 hour and 4 hour excursions daily. Please call or book online now. YOUR experience of a lifetime awaits you!

Fun boat ride! Took the evening trip. Went into sea caves with water fall. Guides were great. Take a towel you will get wet from sea spray. They have drinks and snacks on the boat. If you get sea sick buy the nausea wrist band for $10 it works

We took the morning tour on May 20 and were blessed with calm seas and perfect weather, a fact that was mentioned many times by our boat's captains. The tour is done very well, and we were fortunate to get a glimpse of bottlenose dolphins as well as experience the antics of a large pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins. The... More

The scenic ride down the Na Pali coast is the best way to see the island. The knowledgable crew spoke about several stopping points on the way down the coast. Great snorkeling spot and lunch was provided. The ride back however was much more wavy that anticipated. Passengers with seasickness should be careful. Great trip, would recommend to everyone.

Aloha, Mahalo for joining us on a tour! We're glad you enjoyed the crew and beauty of the coast. While there is a chance the ride back could get bumpy, the water gets calmer and the conditions get better as the season progresses. Wednesday was a bit bumpy, but it's been a smooth ride since!
