Awesome Sail & Snorkel adventure of the Napali coast
The crew were terrific! They handled delicious meals with efficiently. They were friendly and sure footed, were observant, always watching out for us; did we need a hand moving around, did we need a drink, helping people that looked like they might not feel well. An effortless adventure! Highly recommend it!! 🏖❤️

Perfect adventure to finish our trip

Na Pali Coast Super Raft Adventure
This was perfect in order to see the Na Pali coast up close. We saw whales & dolphins, and had the option to snorkel. Captain J. was so sweet and funny. I love that he chose to build this business during Covid because it was his dream he stayed the course. I have huge respect for him. He took time to talk with everyone and I liked that. I will absolutely come out with them again on my next trip. Thank you for the great experience!

LUCKY LADY - Deluxe Na Pali Morning Snorkel Tour
The crew was great - Captain Greg, Jane, Ethan & one more. The meals/snacks were great, the boat was very nice & clean, very easy to schedule & we even had to change our day (was also easy), snorkeling was very good & the equipment was clean & worked well, the captain’s history of the Na’pali coast & the getting us under one of the waterfalls was great, finding two pods of dolphins & a breaching whale was cool, & the adventure was worth every dollar. Would do it again & recommend it to others.

Na Pali Coast Kauai Snorkel and Sail
From the beginning to the end was all memorable. Captain Max and his crew were all so awesome and very friendly. Max and the crew made sure that everyone was taken care of the entire trip with food, drinks, conversation, information about each stop and snorkel gear. The food was outstanding, snorkeling was beautiful and seeing the entire Napali coast was breath taking. I would 10/10 recommend this trip with this company every time.

Amber, Jane, Konakoma , and Josh were a great crew. They consistently were asking if they could help us before we would.

Na Pali Coast Super Raft Adventure
It was great to see the amazing mountains of the Na Pali coast and to hear the stories. It was very pretty. The snorkel spot was not the best. Very few fish and not much color. But it was nice to get into the water. Kannon and Miguel were great hosts. The music on the way back was very fun!

LUCKY LADY - Deluxe Na Pali Morning Snorkel Tour
The crew and the customer service was outstanding. The captain, Rick was very knowledgeable about history, culture, animal life and sights. The boat was very comfortable and the snorkeling was terrific. The lunch, fresh wraps, chips, big cookies and drinks were plentiful and delicious. Our safety was their priority. Definitely worth the money. I highly recommend the Lucky Lady tour.

How to Get There

The Na Pali Coast stretches for 16 miles (26 kilometers) along Kauai’s northwest shore. No roads lead into the Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park, and much of the coast is inaccessible due its extremely rugged terrain and sheer cliffs. To reach the trailhead for the Kalalau Trail, follow highway 560 to the end of the road, just past Ha’ena State Park.

Show all


When to Get There

Kauai’s weather is stable all year round, which makes it an excellent destination anytime of the year. The best time to hike the Kalalau Trail is during the dry season, which lasts from May through October. Winter is whale watching season, making it a great time for boat tours.

Hiking the Kalalau (Na Pali Coast) Trail

The Na Pali coastline is only accessible by foot via the Kalalau Trail. Backpackers typically take 3 days or more to make this incredibly scenic 22-mile (34-kilometer) round-trip journey. The trail traverses steep cliffs, requires several river crossings, and is very strenuous in spots. Day hikers can venture to Hanakapi’ai Falls, but permits are required to hike past the falls, even if you don’t plan to camp.
