Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Kauai’s Na Pali Coast is a dramatic, 16-mile (26-km) stretch of jagged cliffs and emerald valleys along the island’s northwestern shore. The best way to view the spectacular scenery is from the water. Begin your adventure at Port Allen Marina Center, where you meet your friendly captain and crew. After a safety briefing and storage of your personal items in a dry bag, hop aboard a 14-person inflatable, motorized raft.

Your nimble vessel allows the group to get close to the shore and dart in and out of sea caves and under waterfalls (weather permitting). As you cruise along the coast, your crew shares information and legends about the landscape and help you spot passing marine life such as dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. Don a provided snorkeling mask and fins, then splash into the clear waters at Nu‘alolo Kai to explore one of the best coral reefs in Kauai.

Take a break partway through the tour for an onboard picnic of a gourmet sandwich, fresh tropical fruit, chips, and cookies. Beverages are provided throughout the journey so you stay hydrated.

Your coastal adventure concludes back at Port Allen.

Awesome Captain and crew!
, Jun 2021
The most memorable part of our rafting trip was captain Ian and Gabe. They told us stories and had an epic playlist for the different sites. It was an amazing experience, riding on the boat and seeing the caves and Na Pali was unreal and they were the cherry on top! 10/10 would recommend to anyone traveling to the island. Would love to come back and do it again!
Best way to see thw Na Pali Coast

Most memorable parts of the trip was the Na Pali coastline, all the historical and local tips the guides (Drake and Ian) gave through out the trip (camping, hiking, beach suggestions etc.). The effort the captain made to entertain and inform the passengers was very much appreciated

Canceled an hour before the tour due to weather. Other companies were running that day so I am not sure what the problem was. Said we would get our money back (500+) in 7-10 days.
Tour was canceled last minute

Our reservation was canceled the day of. The customer service worker said it was due to choppy waters, though I know that other companies were operating that day, and on the visitor trip it listed “will operate rain or shine”. Just really disappointed, though I was able to get in touch with customer service very easily.
Amazing crew (CJ and Ian)
, Jun 2021
Amazing!!! We had such a blast put in the water with CJ and Ian, they were fun and knowledgeable about the island and culture. On the water we saw spinner dolphins jumping from the water and were able to get some amazing pictures!! The water was a little rough the day we went out so we weren’t completely able to go into the caves, but they got us a close as possible while staying safe! It’s such a unique experience to be in the raft boat, I’d recommend it to anyone!! Make sure to put sunscreen on before getting into the boat, because once you’re on it, You might not have a chance to put more on. Also, there are no ATM’s in the area, so if you plan on tipping the amazing crew, pull some cash out before you get over there!!!
One of My Favorite Memories in Kauai
, Jun 2021
Went with a friend and had an amazing time!! Both Noheli and Jane were helpful, joyful, informative, and all in all amazing in every way possible! I went on the afternoon ride and had a grand time being able to enjoy the Na Pali coast. The afternoon ride may be better than the morning ride just bc the sun would not washout the mountain when you take pictures, but not at all a big deal bc the view is breathtaking. The sea caves were also super fun! This is the only way to look at the caves up close so I definitely recommend it! Thank you so much to Noheli and Jane again! Oh and the check-in at the front desk was quick and easy. I’m recommending this ride to any of my friends who visit the island in the future!!!
Will not disappoint!

Was amazing to dart in and out of the sea caves and amongst pods of dolphins before taking a plunge into turquoise water with the dramatic backdrop of the Na Pali coast. The crew was nice and piloted our vessel with expertise. Highly recommend this over a catamaran booze cruise if you want to get closer to the beauty.
