There are sea caves and archways to explore, with numerous waterfalls falling directly into the ocean. Sealife abounds, including spinner and spotted dolphins, monk seals, and Hawaiian green sea turtles. Humpback whales are often seen during the winter months! Ocean rafting is a popular way to explore this coastline, but those tours aren’t for everyone. That’s the niche of Blue Ocean Adventures Power Catamaran … they offer the adventure of a raft in the form factor of a more comfortable boat with shade and rest rooms on board.
Blue Ocean Adventures offer a huge advantage over most other companies on Kauai because of the proximity of the departure point to the Na Pali Coast. They depart from the Kiki‘aola small boat harbor west of Waimea, which cuts 20 minutes or so each way on the trip to the Na Pali compared to the boats that depart from the Port Allen Harbor. This increases the amount of time you have along the scenic Kona and Na Pali coasts and cuts down on the time getting there and back … and cuts a little time off the overall tour but still gets the same experience. Tours operate from this west side location all year.
This vessel is fast … powered by FOUR 250 horsepower Yamaha engines … and FUN with an inflatable water slide deployed during snorkeling.
MORNING TOURS are offered all year at 7:30am. The morning tour is popular with early risers and the ocean (and wind) is typically a little more calm on the morning tour.
AFTERNOON TOURS are offered March through September at 2:30pm. After snorkeling the late afternoon / early evening sunlight paints the Na Pali coast in a way that is popular with photographers.
Both tours include snorkel gear and a really nice meal featuring pulled pork, teriyaki chicken, and garlic shrimp … veggie option is available by request.
