Seize the adventure! Your Nā Pali Ocean Raft Tour begins on our 30-foot Zodiac© rigid-hull, inflatable raft. We take you to Kauai’s remote Nā Pali Coast for an unforgettable day of fun and excitement! Be ready for a wild adventure! Along the way you will be treated to playful pods of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins and/or Bottlenose dolphins. You may even see Hawaiian green sea turtles and the occasional endangered Hawaiian monk seal. In the winter months, Hawaiian Humpback whales abound from Dec.-Apr.
The Nā Pali Ocean Raft Tour will continue past miles of white, sandy beaches, until the first cliffs of Nā Pali Coast are reached. You will be treated to incredible scenery including magnificent beaches, towering cliffs, verdant valleys, thundering waterfalls, and mysterious sea caves. The entire tour is narrated and filled with history and lore. For those who can swim in the ocean, there will be ample time for snorkeling in a pristine bay (conditions permitting). Light snacks and beverages are served towards the end of the tour.
WARNING: The Zodiac© raft makes for a wild, sometimes fast, and rough ride. Due to the nature of the Nā Pali Raft & Snorkel Adventure, you must be ready to experience ADVENTURE ON THE SEAS! You must be in good physical condition to attend this expedition. We cannot accommodate pregnant women, anyone with back or neck problems, medical conditions or recent surgeries. If you are not capable of swimming in the ocean, you are strictly prohibited from snorkeling during the tour’s snorkel time.
