Full description
Embark on an action-packed journey departing from Hanalei, an exclusive location only a few are permitted to access.  Visit the iconic sights of the Napali Coast, while snorkeling in pristine waters and marveling at the raw beauty of Kaui.  Start the adventure when you leave from the beach of scenic Hanalei Bay. Climb aboard a shuttle dinghy which will take you to the vessel anchored just offshore. There, do a dry-transfer, stow your gear, grab a seat, and get ready for the experience of a lifetime.  Minutes after leaving the bay, the spectacular Napali Coast comes into view and you see why its dramatic cliffs, waterfalls, sea caves, lava tubes, and secluded beaches have enchanted artists, authors, and travelers for centuries.  As you travel down the coast, your crew and captain entertain your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once made this coast their home. From sea-level, you really get a feel for the tremendous scale of Napali. Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles, and seabirds which are often seen on this eco-friendly tour. After taking your time cruising down the coast, the captain will stop so you can snorkel (ocean conditions dependent) at one of several protected areas teeming with tropical fish. Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses), snorkels, and flotation aids are all provided. If you’re new to snorkeling, the friendly crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure.  Then, enjoy a locally made, fresh sandwich lunch before you head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay. The tour operator is committed to preserving the natural beauty, unique history, and rich resources of Kauai. The tour operator supports ecotourism and encourages you to take the pledge to travel responsibly by respecting the land (aina), sea (kai), and traditions of the Hawaiian people.

    Very good boat, good seating, food and overall tour. The location for Snorkeling was not good. Also couldn’t get matching fin size, had to take tighter size..
