Star Na Pali Snorkel BBQ Sail
5.5 hrs Adult $245 Child $225
Explore Na Pali Coast on a custom 65' Star Class luxury catamaran. Enjoy snorkeling and Hawaiian history from our famously friendly crew. Freshly prepared BBQ, beer & wine.
An early departure virtually ensures an encounter with the massive pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins that cruise up the coast daily. After heading North up Na Pali we’ll enjoy a relaxing downwind sail before snorkeling. A freshly prepared BBQ, beer and wine round out the tour.
This Star sailing adventure gets an early departure from Port Allen on the West shore of Kauai. As we head towards Na Pali you’ll see views of Niihau, Polihale and the ridges of Kokee. The am departure generally means we have calmer conditions and virtually ensures an encounter with the massive pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins that cruise up the coast daily.
Generally we take a nearshore route up the entire coast then sail downwind offshore so you get a variety of views. On Na Pali you’ll see spectacular sea cliffs, numerous waterfalls and lava tubes. Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands, and this carved coastline is the result of nearly 8 million years of exposure to wind, waves and rain. In addition to seagoing skills, our crew is knowledgeable in the history and legends of the ancient civilizations that once inhabited these verdant valleys.
After a relaxing and beautiful downwind sail, we’ll pull in to one or our favorite remote snorkel spots. Here, we anchor and passengers can get in the water, or simply relax. After snorkeling the crew prepares a delicious lunch in our onboard kitchen, which we serve with beer and wine (only available after snorkeling). Lastly, we’ll cruise home to Port Allen.

"One of the highlights of our entire Kauai trip! The scenery was unbeatable...(w)e saw multiple types of dolphins, and a pod of them even tried racing with our boat! The ride was breezy and there was an indoor space on the boat if you want to get more cozy. The restroom on board was clean and inviting...The food was good and fresh, we especially enjoyed our burgers that were grilled on sight...an amazing experience, definitely worth it! We will be returning for another tour next time we visit Kauai."
"...one of the best oceangoing tours in all Hawaii!"
