Afternoon Napali Adventure

Napali Coast Tours from Hanalei

Hanalei boat tours

Explore ancient lava tubes and venture into sea caves. Get up close and personal with the Napali Coast, one of National Geographic’s favorite places to photograph. Minutes after leaving Hanalei bay, the spectacular Napali Coast comes into view as your captain and crew 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. The afternoon light is best for photography, so make sure to bring your camera. Depending on the ocean conditions for the day of your tour, we will have the opportunity to explore inside the sea caves and ancient lava tubes that once created Kauai’s rugged landscape.

As a company that puts sustainability at the forefront of goals, we request you bring your own reusable water bottle with you on tour. We will have plenty of filtered spring water available to refill through the duration of your tour and by bringing your own bottle you help prevent thousands of unnecessary plastic water bottles from being in circulation. One way to help keep motion sickness at bay is to stay well hydrated, so keep your water intake consistent before and during your tour!

We pride ourselves on creating fun and memorable ocean adventures for our guests. Your safety is our top priority; therefore, all tour routes, destinations, and snorkeling activities are dependent on ocean and weather conditions. Conditions around Kauai can change quickly, so our expert captains are constantly analyzing and may wait until check-in time to determine the best route for the day. If that occurs, you will have the opportunity to go on the altered tour, reschedule to another day, or cancel your tour at no charge if it is weather-related. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 808-335-0815 so we can help create the best experience for you and your family!

Adventurer II & III: Fun, Fast, Rigid Inflatables

Adventurer II and III are super-fast, modern, rigid-hull inflatable boats. Not to be confused with a Zodiac-type rubber raft, they’re made with a channeled fiberglass hull that cuts through the waves. Twin 225 hp outboard motors allow for a top speed up to 30 knots!

The high speed of these rafts, combined with our unique North Shore departure, brings the Napali Coast into view just minutes after we leave Hanalei Bay — no one gets to the coast faster. – Learn more.

Kauai may be called the garden island but viewing this beautiful island from the sea really gives a fuller appreciation for its magnificent rugged coast.
