Kauai Sea Tours Rafting is a 6 hour ultimate adventure that explores all the “nooks and crannies” of the majestic Na Pali coast. Ride through waterfalls and into sea caves (when conditions permit) … and anchor at the ancient archeological site at Nualolo Kai for snorkeling, a narrated walking tour and a picnic lunch.

As you depart the South Shore from Port Allen the odds are you will encounter pods of playful spinner dolphins. You’ll pass miles of sandy beaches at Barking Sands and Polihale and cruise past the towering cliffs of the leeward side of the island. When you arrive at the Na Pali coast it will take your breath away!

This tour allows you to experience the Na Pali coast in a way that few other tours will, as only a few vessels have permission from the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources to LAND along the Na Pali coast. This is a memorable excursion to a remote destination that few people who live in Hawaii have ever had the opportunity to experience first hand.

Sorry, this tour starts too early for any cruise ship passengers to make it to check in. While Pride of America stays overnight, the second day doesn’t work either as you wouldn’t have time to get back to the ship after your tour.


Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

This tour offers an opportunity to experience a location that very few Hawaii residents have been able to experience. The remote beach landing at Nualolo Kai is miles beyond the end of the famous Kalalau Trail, and due to towering cliffs completely surrounding it, is only accessible from the ocean. A large reef protects the beach landing from northeast trade winds and swells. This rugged and isolated location was once home to a thriving fishing village with about 100 Hawaiian inhabitants.

Landing here is like stepping back in time to ancient Hawaii. Rock walls of the historic village have been restored, and the giant “X” formed by lava dikes in the cliff face lends a distinctive identity to the location. Walking around here will give you “chicken skin” (aka goose bumps).

This tour only operates during mid-spring to mid-fall due to giant surf that hits the Na Pali coast in the wintertime. Even during the months this tour operates there are occasional days when ocean conditions do no permit snorkeling and/or landing here at Nualolo Kai. On those days additional time is spent sightseeing further up the coastline.

This tour departs from Port Allen on Kauai’s south shore. If you’re staying on the north shore, you may want to consider Hanalei Na Pali Rafting, and if you prefer an adventure with comforts of a larger raft, we suggest Na Pali Explorer Rafting.
