Tour the Napali Coast aboard our Kauai-built High Speed Raft for an adventure of a lifetime. *This tour does not include snorkeling.

Napali snorkel tour The adventure begins as we depart out of Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s North Shore. We shuttle you by our luxury dinghy to your rigid hull inflatable raft which is anchored in the bay. 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 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 raft tour, we will have the opportunity to explore inside the sea caves and ancient lava tubes that once created Kauai’s rugged landscape.


  • Snacks Only: Assorted Chips & Local Kauai Kookies
  • Beverages Include: Bottled Water, Assorted Soft Drinks and Island Juices.

Note, boat tours out of Hanalei often fill up 3-5 days in advance. Booking your tour early in your vacation window is a good idea. Holo Holo Charters is proud to operate Hanalei’s only permitted raft tours to the Napali Coast.

Disclaimer: This is a once-and-a-lifetime adventure. It may not be suitable for individuals who are physically challenged. Those that suffer from motion sickness should take precautions. Safety and your experience are always our top priority. Ocean conditions can sometimes turn rough, therefore all tour routes and destinations are subject to change due to weather.  Snorkeling depends on ocean conditions.

Adventurer II & III: Fun, Fast, Rigid Inflatables

Adventurer II & 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 225hp 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.

These boats are designed for comfort as well as speed and safety.

*Due to vessel transfers guests should be prepared to wade in the water and be able to assist themselves onto tour vessel. Expect to get some “sea spray” on our high speed raft tours and passing rain showers are not uncommon on the Napali Coast—plan to dress accordingly.
