Thanks for an amazing day!!
The views of Kauai from the catamaran were breathtaking. The crew shared the history of the island, local custom and history -- they went above and beyond!! This was one of the highlights of our trip.

LUCKY LADY - Deluxe Na Pali Morning Snorkel Tour
The crew was great - Captain Greg, Jane, Ethan & one more. The meals/snacks were great, the boat was very nice & clean, very easy to schedule & we even had to change our day (was also easy), snorkeling was very good & the equipment was clean & worked well, the captain’s history of the Na’pali coast & the getting us under one of the waterfalls was great, finding two pods of dolphins & a breaching whale was cool, & the adventure was worth every dollar. Would do it again & recommend it to others.

The best NaPali Coast Tour !

Na Pali Snorkel Adventure
Captain Mike and Titus were awesome! Loads of fun and interesting info during the tour. Double dolphin magic for our group as wr spotted the same large pod twice and got a few spins from the more playful ones! We have done several NaPali Coast Tours and Holo Holo is now our jam. Take the 630AM tour for calmer waters and fresh vibes all around. We love the North Shore location since we always stay in Hanalei. We will be back! MAHALO from Pinky Kent and Olivia! LA,CA

Kauai's Ultimate Na Pali Coast Zodiac Boat Snorkeling & Sea Cave Eco Tour
Great trip to see the Na Pali coastline. The staff on board were very acknowledgable, friendly and experienced. I did not give the trip a 5 because there are no actual seats, except for the bench in the middle. It's a long trip to just be sitting on the outside of the boat holding a rope. Snorkeling is done at the end and it was very nice.

RAFT ADVENTURE - Na Pali 1/2 Day Snorkel
This was fun but not at all what I thought I booked so I was a bit disappointed. Very exciting and scenic ride around the west part of the island to the NaPali coast. We did go in caves and under a waterfall. It took two hours each way so we only had 30 minutes to snorkel. I thought I was booking a snorkeling adventure. The snorkel site was just so so but that is not their fault. You can't control marine life. It is an outstanding rafting trip if that is what you are looking for.

We loved the info of thr na pali coast and saw so many dolphins. Only thing was we didn’t see a lot of tropical fish snorkeling, but the water was still pretty

Beautiful views. Very Rough ride

LUCKY LADY - Deluxe Na Pali Sunset Snorkel Tour
Recommend the trip. Getting out on the ocean is something you should do when visiting Hawaii. And the views of the Na Pali coast are great although only make up a rather small portion of the time on the water. Most time is spent getting to/from. Be prepared… it can be a very rough ride. Not for someone who thinks it’s going to be a leisurely relaxing boat ride.

How to Get There

The Na Pali Coast stretches for 16 miles (26 kilometers) along Kauai’s northwest shore. No roads lead into the Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park, and much of the coast is inaccessible due its extremely rugged terrain and sheer cliffs. To reach the trailhead for the Kalalau Trail, follow highway 560 to the end of the road, just past Ha’ena State Park.

Show all


When to Get There

Kauai’s weather is stable all year round, which makes it an excellent destination anytime of the year. The best time to hike the Kalalau Trail is during the dry season, which lasts from May through October. Winter is whale watching season, making it a great time for boat tours.

Hiking the Kalalau (Na Pali Coast) Trail

The Na Pali coastline is only accessible by foot via the Kalalau Trail. Backpackers typically take 3 days or more to make this incredibly scenic 22-mile (34-kilometer) round-trip journey. The trail traverses steep cliffs, requires several river crossings, and is very strenuous in spots. Day hikers can venture to Hanakapi’ai Falls, but permits are required to hike past the falls, even if you don’t plan to camp.
