Napali Snorkel Adventure Adventurer II & III are rigid-hull inflatable “rafts” with twin 225hp outboards that will get you to the Napali Coast in record time! They’re large enough to include all the comforts you expect, and nimble enough to get up close to Kauai’s famous coastline.
The adventure begins when you leave from the shore of scenic Hanalei Bay and we shuttle you by dingy to your rigid hull inflatable raft which is anchored just offshore. There, you'll 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 and beaches have enchanted painters, authors and travelers for centuries... and we're just getting started!
As we 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 our tours.
Depending on the ocean conditions the day of your raft tour, we’ll stop and snorkel at one of several protected and shallow areas which will be teeming with tropical fish. Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses if you need them), snorkels, and flotation aids are all provided. If you’re new to snorkeling, our crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure.
After you have a chance to snorkel and relax on the Napali Coast, we’ll serve a tasty sandwich lunch before we head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay.
Make your reservations online to get the best price! Note that tours often fill up 3-5 days in advance. Booking your tour early in your vacation window is a good idea in case weather forces us to postpone your tour.
