Highlights
Set out on a catamaran cruise and snorkeling adventure along the Na Pali Coast
Spot dolphins, sea turtles, tropical fish, and whales (December through April)
Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and drinks (beer and wine included) onboard
A spacious catamaran provides the perfect vantage point for photos
What to expect
One of the Hawaiian Islands’ most spectacular and inaccessible landscapes, the Na Pali coast stretches along Kauai’s northwestern shore in a dramatic crest of emerald cathedral spires reaching as high as 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) and dotted with sea caves, waterfalls and secluded beaches. A sailing cruise is the perfect way to experience the coastline, as there are no roads that can access it. Make your way to Port Allen in the morning, where you'll meet your friendly captain and crew and board a 50-foot (15-meter) sailing catamaran equipped with restrooms and spacious sun decks. Enjoy an onboard breakfast and relax on deck as you cruise along the coastline, soaking up magnificent views around every bend. Learn about Na Pali’s sacred place in Kauai’s culture and legends, and look out for passing marine life like spinner dolphins, sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (December through April). If conditions are right, the crew will hoist the sails for an exciting wind-powered ride. Weather permitting, stop at a calm spot to splash into the crystal-clear waters and snorkel among native fish, turtles and coral gardens. Recharge with a delicious buffet lunch and beverages onboard, and relax on the return journey to Port Allen in the afternoon.

Best Cruise EVER!
Mar 2020
It started with a very helpful and informative reservation agent who gave us the complete lowdown and recommended the best day for our trip.The reservation process was easy even though we were booking several people and using 3 different credit cards.
From check in to boarding it went very smoothly. the boat was beautiful, clean and well outfitted.
The crew was friendly and informative giving us interesting facts about the coast and its history. Captain Kelly was fantastic, taking us all the way up the Na Pali coast even putting us under a waterfall.
Simply Amazing!!!

Exciting ride, excellent crew
Feb 2020
We went on a morning trip, roughly 7 am - 1 pm. The snorkeling was beautiful, we saw a sea turtle! The crew was excellent about setting up food, distributing snorkeling gear, making sure everyone had a drink, and keeping us all safe when the seas got a bit rough. They were true to their word - as soon as people stopped enjoying the waves, we turned around. We saw spinner dolphins, multiple whales (including a baby humpback!), and albatross. Delicious lunch as well. Such a great experience and well worth the money.

Whales, dolphins and beautiful views
Feb 2020
We had the best time on the Snorkel and Sail! The snorkeling was toward the beginning of the trip. They let us off the boat for about an hour, and some people stayed out the whole time while others came in once they were satisfied. Not the most incredible snorkeling ever, but there were a good amount of fish and good visibility. The best part was the cruise up the NaPali coast. It was so beautiful out on the water with the coastline beside us and with sightings of whales and dolphins. The crew was really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. It was fun to sit on the front deck and see the views, but be prepared to get really wet as the boat crashes over the waves (especially int he winter). There is plenty of room to huddle up in the back of the boat and stay dry and warm, which many people did toward the end. The breakfast and lunch they offered was really good and fresh, and they served drinks after snorkeling. You'll definitely want sunscreen, towels, swimsuit and a rain jacket. The cruise can be fairly rough at times, so if you are at all sensitive to motion sickness, I'd recommend taking medication beforehand. I was OK but felt really bad for another passenger who was sick the whole time. And make sure to bring a tip for the awesome crew!

Best snorkel and more
Feb 2020 • Couples
This was an incredible trip. We snorkeled, whale watched, and took a beautiful ride along an NaPali coast. Two very nice meals - nothing fancy, but perfect. Captain Wendell, Ian and Max were the best crew we we could have hoped for. All were very knowledgeable, patient and fun. Take this trip is you have the opportunity.

Great way to spend the morning!
Feb 2020
We had hoped to take the Holo Holo charter that goes to Niihau and the Na Pali coast so we could snorkel at Niihau. Unfortunately they were not running that trip while we were in Kauai so we "settled" for this one. Well, it was a fabulous experience. We began by snorkeling on the west shore on Kauai where the highlight was the sea turtles. Then we sailed around to the northern part of the Na Pali coast. We stopped on the way to see pods of dolphins. We also saw a number of whales. Seeing the Na Pali coast from the water was breathtaking. In addition to the gorgeous scenery we had an experienced and knowledgeable crew who knew all about the coast line. We had a lovely breakfast on board after snorkeling and lunch on our way back. This was a great trip and I recommend it to everyone. If you go be sure to say hi to the crew, Captain Wendell, and mates Max and Stephen. All of them were excellent.

Great cruise with lots to see. The crew made us feel safe and wellcared for :)))
Feb 2020
Very enjoyable cruise. Amazing staff, great vessel, super white and clean bathrooms, great food (we had hot egg scramble and baked goodies after snorkeling and a nice selection of meats, cheeses, fruit and veggies for lunch). Beers and other drinks were also in abundance. The Na Pali coast is amazing. We saw dolphins and whales (the tent-like floor at the front of the catamaran is amazing to sit on when watching dolphins swim within a hands reach - my keikis were in awe!) The water was quite choppy for the whole journey north, but the kids thought this was all part of an adventure and we're excited to watch the boat going up and down for over an hour on some serious waves! Only one piece of advice - even if you are not prone to sea sickness - it is best to take precautions!
