Departure Point: Tahiti Nui Hanalei • Check-in and passenger parking at Tahiti Nui (look for Holo Holo Charters signage). Passengers will be shuttled to Hanalei Bay • Carpooling, taxi, or shuttle service are encouraged due to limited parking at Tahiti Nui • Passengers should expect to wade in the water to board dinghy. Dinghy will shuttle them to vessel moored in the bay where passengers will do a dry transfer onto the vessel.

1:00 PM
This activity will end right where it started.
Check in for the tour at the Tahiti Nui restaurant in Hanalei and dry transfer to the cruising raft waiting in Hanalei Bay via a luxury dinghy. The inflatable-hull raft is ideal for getting close to the coastline to explore a network of sea caves and lava tubes (weather permitting). Stow any gear you have, though you’ll want to keep a camera handy to capture the spectacular coastline illuminated by the golden afternoon light.

Take a seat and hang on for a high-speed ride out of the bay and around the North Shore to where the rugged, inaccessible Na Pali Coast begins. Marvel at the towering sea cliffs as they come into view, jutting straight up from the water and punctuated by lush green valleys, waterfalls, and remote beaches. If conditions are right, get an up-close perspective on the landscape as the raft darts in an out of mythical sea caves and lava tubes.

Learn about the history of the legendary coastline as your captain and crew share tales of the ancient Hawaiians who once lived and trained for battle among its valleys. Keep your energy up with a refreshing snack of soft drinks, tropical juices, chips, and locally made Kauai Kookies, and be sure to keep an eye out for native wildlife like spinner dolphins, sea turtles, and migrating whales.

The adventure concludes back at the departure point in Hanalei Bay.

Please note: This tour does not include snorkeling.

We were driving there and get a phone call that they have canceled the excursion for the day. They tried to get us to reschedule another day with no discount or anything.
