More about this activity
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.
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.
