Description

Kauai Sea Tours Rafting is a 5 to 5.5 hour 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 enjoy snorkeling along the Na Pali Coast. This tour is offered all year, and does not include the beach landing at Nualolo Kai (which is only available April through October).

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! Depending on ocean conditions and swells you can go in and out of many of the sea caves. The massive "Open Ceiling Cave" is unforgettable. "Two Door Cave" has a back entrance, and as you approach the front you'll find a waterfall INSIDE the cave, which feels like it is straight out of "Pirates of the Caribbean."

We recommend this tour for adventure seekers who want an intimate experience of the Na Pali Coast but the the landing version of the tour is either sold out, or is not available during the time of year you are planning to visit Kauai.

Kevin's Activity Tips:

We highly recommend the Kauai Sea Tours rafting excurions ... the one that includes the remote beach landing at Nualolo Kai is outstanding, but this landing at the beach is only accessible during the summer half of the season though ... due to large winter swells that are generated by storms in the northern Pacific Ocean.

The tour on this page covers the same spectacular coastline, but without the beach landing. This tour is offered year-round (whereas the beach landing is only available April through October). If you are coming during the "winter" half of the year when the beach landing is not available, or if you are coming during the summer but the landing tour is already full ... this 5 hour excursion is a great alternative.

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 but that tour is also only available during summer months. If you are coming in the winter, the tour on this page is your best bet.

One thing to keep in mind about these rafting excursions ... they are high on adventure but low on "Creature comforts." A hat that has a strap to hold it onto your head while the vessel is in motion is essential as you will be in full sunlight most of the tour. There is no "rest room" on board these rafts. When nature calls, nature is your answer (if you know what I mean ... haha).
