Your Tour Includes

Tour the Napali Coast aboard our High Speed Raft for your Kauai snorkeling and sightseeing adventures.Napali snorkel tour The adventure begins when you leave from the shore of scenic Hanalei Bay and we shuttle you by dinghy 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. A perfect platform for snorkeling, both Adventurer II & III have dive ladders and a fresh water shower.

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.

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.
