Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

A must do! You will not be disappointed. Beautiful, totally worth a day out to sea there. The shipmates were were very pleasant and had a lot of knowledge. Food was good too. Next time, I’d like to go with adults only, since I do not have kids.

My wife said we couldn’t leave Hawaii until she saw dolphins and this tour did not disappoint. We saw two pods of dolphins and the first one swam with the boat for several minutes. We also saw a couple turtles and a pair of stingrays while snorkeling. The coast was beautiful and had so many amazing views. The captain and crew were extremely attentive and constantly sharing fun history and facts as well as checking on all passengers. Captain was awesome and she even took us right up to a waterfall and gave the front passengers a free shower. If you want to get wet then sit up front and enjoy the wild ride!

We had such a great day. The captain and crew were top notch. The scenery was beautiful. Our favorite was when the captain stopped the boat while spinner dolphins swam and jumped around our boat, everyone loved it. It was a great value for what you get. We’ll be back.

Captain Dave was awesome. He was knowledgeable about the trip and was more than helpful! He had first mate Max and Jackie helping him with the tour. They made sure we didn’t go hungry or thirsty! Max was full of fun facts about the coast and really seemed to enjoy his job. They were all helpful and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. We had really nice weather and didn’t experience too much rough water and it was really enjoyable. Would definitely recommend!
