Departing daily from the calm, leeward waters of Kauai's South West side, this sea rafting adventure takes you on a sightseeing and snorkel tour along the breathtaking NaPali Coast on a comfortable luxury super-raft.
The NaPali Coast is one of the most recognizable and beautiful coastlines in the world. The cliffs up to 4,000 feet high provide a rugged grandeur of deep, narrow valleys ending abruptly at the sea. Spanning 17 miles along Kauai's North Shore, the NaPali Coast is a sacred place defined by extraordinary beauty.
The rugged terrain appears much as it did centuries ago when Hawaiian settlements flourished in these deep, narrow valleys, existing only on the food they could grow and the fish they could catch. Extensive stone walled terraces can still be found on the valley bottoms where Hawaiians once lived and cultivated taro.
This fast-paced eco-adventure allows for plenty of time to enjoy the views along the coast from every angle while also exploring its many caves and waterfalls in a way that only this versatile raft can. The journey along this secluded coastline will bring you alongside the majestic cathedrals of Kalalau and playful Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins of Polihale.
The tour also has a snorkelling stop, where you might be lucky enough to come face to face with Hawaiian Sea Turtles and a host of beautiful reef fish. In the wintertime, snorkelling is unavailable due to seasonal winter swells; however, as an alternative, your captain will take you to the very end of the coast to beautiful Ke'e beach, allowing you to see the entire coastline. The captain may also make a detour to see humpback whales during their migration season.
Finally, you'll be travelling onboard the 37-foot Naiad Super Raft, which is so much more than a typical zodiac or raft. This state-of-the-art luxury raft is known for its speed, comfort and stability. You will appreciate the ride and its amenities, including comfortable individual seating with backrests, a large accommodating restroom, a freshwater shower, a shaded area, and a sturdy swim ladder for boarding the boat after snorkelling.
