More about this activity


Napali Snorkel ArchwayYour Boat

Climb aboard one of the “Adventurer”s for the fastest route to the Napali Coast. These twin 40-foot rigid hull inflatable boats are the only tour boats permitted to launch from Hanalei on the North Shore. Equipped with dual outboard motors and specifically designed to cut through wind and waves, this boat gets guests to the Napali Coast in record time. The Adventurers are also nimble and can easily maneuver along the coast and through sea caves.

The Adventure

Before the adventure begins, your captain will assess weather conditions and design an itinerary for the day. Departing Hanalei, you’ll spend a full 5.5 hours zipping along the Napali Coast and Kaua’i’s north shore, exploring sea caves, looking for dolphins, snorkeling at a spot or two, and taking in scenery that’s unlike anywhere on earth. Not only does this tour include an exploration deep into the Napali Coast, but it also hits popular spots on the north shore like Queens Bath, Anini Beach, and the Kilauea Lighthouse.


Depending on the weather, you’ll hit one to two snorkeling spots. Thanks to its remote location, the reefs surrounding the Napali Coast are thriving and the water is crystal clear. It’s not uncommon to spot spinner dolphins and green sea turtles in this area. The crew provides everything you need for a day underwater, like snorkel gear and snorkel instruction.

Breakfast & Lunch

Enjoy a continental breakfast and an onboard sandwich lunch catered by Tahiti Nui Restaurant in Hanalei. Guests can also munch on chips and local Kauai cookies. There will also be a cooler stocked with water, assorted soft drinks, and juices.

    Thank you for a wonderful snorkel tour. We didn’t know what to expect since we’ve never gone snorkeling in Hawaii, so this was a treat. What I was definitely not expecting was the incredible views of the cliffs and beaches. So beautiful. Awe-inspiring.

    I absolutely 100% recommend this rafting tour. I’ve been sailing to Na Pali before but this was more intimate. The ride was faster and more exciting. We got wet while riding to the snorkel spot, but it felt good since the sun was out and blazing. The snorkel spots we went to were straight out of National Geographic or the screensaver on my Apple TV.

    It was a little bumpy and I get very motion sick on boats. I was ok, and my husband and kids really enjoyed it, but I think I would’ve brought pills next time. I still had fun, but towards the end, I was little uneven.
