Na Pali Cave Expedition

6 hours9:30 AM Check InAdult $245Child $225

Explore sea caves and waterfalls, land on a remote beach to tour the ruins of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village (conditions permitting), and enjoy up-close wildlife and snorkeling on one of our custom 24' rigid-hull rafts. Picnic lunch & beverages included.

Join us on an incredible 5.5 to 6 hour expedition down Kauai's world famous Na Pali Coast – darting in and out of sea caves, plunging under cascading waterfalls, and taking in the dramatic peaks and majestic valleys of the Na Pali Coast. When conditions allow, we'll land on a remote beach, Nualolo Kai, for a short cultural walk, snorkeling, and a delicious picnic lunch. An early departure virtually ensures an encounter with a massive pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins that can be found along the Kauai coastline most mornings. More

Explore Kauai's rugged Na Pali Coast with the friendly sea-going professionals at Capt Andy's. Our rafts offer an amazing view of wildlife, waterfalls, and the 4,000-foot cliffs and pinnacles of Na Pali coast. At Nualolo Kai, take a guided historical hike through the ruins of an 800 year old Hawaiian fishing village. Go snorkeling and explore the same thriving reef ecosystem that once supported the ancient Hawaiians who lived here.

Snorkel gear and instruction provided. Visiting the Na Pali Coast, a beach landing, and snorkeling are conditions permitting, and the tour destination may be modified to ensure passenger comfort and safety. In the winter, conditions can sometimes be quite rough on the Na Pali Coast, and on these days, we will offer tours to the sunny and calm south shore of Kauai instead.

Warning: Due to the bumpy ride on the rafts, we cannot accommodate pregnant passengers, anyone with a history of back or neck issues, serious medical conditions, or recent surgeries, or children under six years old. This can be a physically demanding ride, and passengers should be in above average physical condition. Elderly or frail passengers should strongly consider our Star Catamarans as a less physically strenuous alternative. The Captain reserves the right to refuse boarding at any time to anyone whose health and safety could be at risk.

Winter Alert: The island of Kauai is known for its rugged beauty and its unique ocean conditions. The same extreme elements that have shaped the landscape sometimes prevent us from comfortably exploring the Na Pali Coast, and in-water activities are always weather and ocean conditions dependent. Your captain will continually monitor the weather and will be receiving reports about local ocean conditions right up to your departure time. We will notify you approximately 90 minutes prior to departure via a text to the number you provided at booking to advise you of any destination changes the weather and/or ocean conditions may make necessary. Wherever we go, it will be a super fun day on the water!

"Not to miss! We did the morning snorkel and BBQ trip along the Na Pali coast. Seeing the Na Pali coast by boat is incredible. Our captain and crew were awesome too- they were fun, clearly loved what they do and definitely added to the whole experience with stories and history of the area, pointing out sights, etc. This was the highlight of my trip to Kauai!"
