What You Can Expect

Na Pali Coast Kauai Snorkel and Sail

Napali boat tours

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. See Itinerary for sample breakfast and lunch menus.

We saw many dolphins and a couple of whales. The breakfast was hot chocolate , coffee or tea with cinnamon buns and fresh fruit. Lunch was sandwiches and veggies. Lots of soft drinks. Alcohol for adults.
We didn't see too many fish snorkeling. The site was nice though. The captain and his co-workers were very informative and made sure everyone had a great time.
Tha Na Pali coast is breathtaking!

Great experience! We were suppose to go to Na Pali Coast but the weather bad there so they took us to another spot that was great for seeing sea turtles!

The crew was very nice and attentive. The Captain said he wasn't sure if we could make it to the Na Pali coast due to potential rough seas but he gave it a good try. Found a school of dolphins and they circled around and stopped for a good long look at them. The crew also pointed out a couple of Whales and made a good attempt to get close.
Only advice take Dramamine as you are out for quite a few hours.

Fabulous trip! The crew was amazing and took excellent care of all of us. Cheers to Holo Holo Charters. Very interactive with lots of stories. Captain Kelly was the best. Snorkeling was great and we even swam with a turtle. The sail up Napali coast was beautiful and again the crew was very informative. This was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

We had a great time on this tour! We got to see the most spectacular coast line view as well as seeing several pods of dolphins in route! They swarmed around the boat and treated us to some great pictures. The food was good and the snorkeling was fun... though not the best we saw while in Hawaii. The captain and crew made us feel safe and they were friendly and attentive. We couldn't ask for a better experience!
