For those who are more interested in the scenery of the coast rather than the snorkeling, the Na Pali sunset cruise is perfect for you! Sightsee the Na Pali and experience a Kauai sunset on board Holoholo's 65 foot power catamaran. The late afternoon and early evening sun frequently cast a dramatic light upon the majestic cliffs and pinnacles of the Na Pali. On board you will enjoy a scrumptious light meal, soft drinks, beer, wine and champagne at sunset. As you head toward your destination the crew will be entertain you with stories of the Hawaiians who once lived in this remote area. Considered to be "The Jewel of Kauai" with 3,000 foot cliffs, green valleys, hidden beaches, secluded waterfalls and breathtaking beauty, the Na Pali coast is a sight to be enjoyed from sea level.

Kevin's Activity Tips:
The Na Pali coastline is truly breathtaking … because of the sheer cliffs and wide open ocean exposure, these trips are often better for sightseeing than for snorkeling. This is especially true during winter when this area gets big swells. The afternoon trip on the Holoholo powered catamaran has one advantage over the sailing catamarans … because this boat doesn't have a mast, it is possible for them to actually pull this large boat inside of some of the sea caves. When I was out with Holoholo, the captain skillfully maneuvered us into one of these caves. As we approached the opening I said to myself, "There is no way this boat is going to fit in there." Two minutes later the sky disappeared and my eyes adjusted to the dim lighting of one of Na Pali's mysterious sea caves. This is possible most of the time in summer months but only infrequently during lulls in the winter swells.
The Na Pali coast tour is "conditions permitting" … while the trips normally go all the way to the Na Pali, the captain will select the tour destinations with the comfort and safety of the passengers in mind. If the Na Pali is not possible, there is a "little Na Pali" destination along the south shore of Kauai that is also very beautiful and is a good replacement. Fortunately those days are pretty rare.
