What You Can Expect

Na Pali Kauai Sunset Cruise

Na Pali Kauai Sunset Cruise

Stretching for 16 miles (26 km) along Kauai’s northwestern shore, the Na Pali Coast is a spectacular landscape of towering, jagged cliffs plunging into emerald valleys and the blue expanse of the Pacific. Completely inaccessible by car, the coast is best viewed from the water.

To begin your Na Pali cruise, make your way to the Port Allen Marina Center in the afternoon, where you’ll climb aboard a 65-foot (20-meter) Holo Holo catamaran. The fastest touring boat in Hawaii, this catamaran seats up to 50 people among a mixture of deck space and open-air cabins.

Soak up the magnificent scenery as your captain navigates along the coast. Keep an eye out for passing marine life, such as spinner dolphins, whales and sea turtles. Snack on hearty passed appetizers and sip on your choice of beer, wine, champagne, cocktails or nonalcoholic beverages (see Itinerary for a sample list of appetizers and drinks).

The landscape will change with the setting sun, as Na Pali’s rugged cliffs become bathed in slanting golden light and the rosy hues of sunset. At the end of your 3.5-hour cruise, disembark back at Port Allen.

We had a very nice cruise with the crew from Holo Holo! The surf was high and we were not able to go to the Na Pali Coast, but we saw the southern coast near Poipu and whales and turtles. The captain and crew were great!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

The staff was great. We knew the seas would be rough in the winter and we did have 2-3 people on the boat having issues including my wife. Captain did a great job of navigating through the worst parts. The staff did a great job of attending to their needs while not embarrassing them. The scenery was spectacular.
