Bucket List Excursion
Captain Kelly and her crew did an excellent job hosting and sailing our charter trip, super friendly, accommodating, and had great island knowledge to share. The sceneries were STUNNING, really no words to describe!! Captain Kelly stopped for dolphin watching, stopped at the waterfalls and cave. We were lucky to experience some sailing.

RAFT ADVENTURE - Na Pali 1/2 Day Snorkel
We had captain Ian and crew member Noah, they rocked this trip!! Great energy and engagement with the group! The Na Pali coast is a breath taking place and the history of it too. We loved seeing dolphins, sea turtles and tons of fish on our trip. This is an adventure for sure, so will be rocked, tossed, soaked, and possibly burned but it’s well worth it if you want to experience that side of the island.

Great crew, wonderful service, and can’t miss fun! My wife and I went for a little day trip to the west side of Kauai, and selected this tour to view the Na Pali coast by water. It was well worth the trip, as the views were spectacular.

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.

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.
