Cruise Ship Passengers
Lucky Lady Na Pali Snorkel and the Leila Na Pali Snorkel Sail Morning Snorkel Tour do not work for cruise ship passengers due to the early morning check in time and the length of the tour.
The Leila Na Pali Snorkel Sail Sunset Motor Tour is available for cruise ship passengers who are on one of the NCL ships that overnight in Nawiliwili. You can do the sunset tour on day one; You will need a rental car since the check-in location is about 40 minutes from the cruise ship dock.
You MUST SEE the Na Pali coast … it is unarguably the MOST beautiful stretch of coastline in the world. Rugged, isolated, rocky spires pointing toward the heavens like a thousand cathedrals but carved by wind and rain … waterfalls that disappear into sea caves … it looks like miles of scenery created specifically for a fantasy movie set.
Helicopter tours give a unique aerial perspective and we highly recommend them, but the time spent above the coast is brief. Boat tours offer a different (and much longer) view.
These sailing catamarans are a great choice for people who want to see this beauty, but aren’t up for the more adventurous rafting tours. We do love the rafts because of their ability to go in and out of sea caves when the ocean swells permit (typically from May to October). These catamarans have masts, so they are too tall to enter any of the caves. But they DO offer creature comforts and amenities you won’t find on the smaller rafts.
