Experience the Majestic NaPali Coast

3 Tours Daily

4 hour tours, "Early Bird" 7:30am-11:30am -"Photo Favorite" 12:30pm-4:30pm

2 Hour "Evening Tour" 5:15pm-7:15pm

Departing from Hanalei Bay, sightseeing and snorkeling the majestic Na Pali Coast is the experience of a lifetime. Established in 1972, Na Pali Catamaran has a perfect safety score as well as a new 35' Power Catamaran. Offering shade and protection, the Kamahele Kai II is powerful, spacious and comfortable. Because Kamahele Kai II has no sail, we take you into many secret and sacred sea caves while introducing you to dolphins, sea turtles and seasonal Humpback whales along the way. Kamahele Kai II is built to carry 24, but we limit our passenger count to 18, allowing us to snorkel Kauai's world renown Nualolo State Park!! Na Pali Catamaran offers both 2 hour and 4 hour excursions daily. Please call or book online now. YOUR experience of a lifetime awaits you!

Visiting the Napali Coast from the North shore was awesome. We got our recommendation from the "Kauai Revealed" guidebook. Johnny and Sam were our captains and they did a great job. We were able to go into one of the caves which was awesome because the weather this week was a little sketchy. The snorkeling was pretty good. They let... More

Did this trip with my wife on the front end of a 10th anniv. trip relying primarily on the Kauai Revealed guide by Andrew Doughty. He was big fan of this outfit and their accolades in the guide are richly deserved. The boat left out of Hanalei Bay - driving there in the morning was a real treat considering we... More

The guys were very funny and gave us a ton of great information. I was very sea sick (Be prepared for that if you have a tendency), and I was checked on a lot.

The good: beautiful scenery, comfortable boat, dolphins, sea caves. The bad: The sea was rough. If you are prone to motion sickness you may want to skip it. I felt ill a good deal of the time even though I took Bonine and ginger. Another person was very sick and threw up. A couple other people said they were queasy... More

Our family had an amazing time. Our crew members, Sean and Miguel, made the trip fantastic and quite funny. We were able to get into caves, see numerous dolphins and snorkel with turtles. Would recommend this trip! Mahalo!

Na Pali Catamaran took great care of us!

This is the best way to view the Na Pali Coast! The crew were friendly, funny, knowledgeable and very attentive. A couple of us were not experienced snorkelers but, after a few tips from the crew, went out and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Loved going into the caves. The views of the Na Pali Coast were amazing.
