Depart from beautiful Hanalei Bay, just 15 minutes away from the secluded Na Pali coast!
Join us on an adventure of a lifetime covering the full 15 miles of the Na Pali Coast.
Depart from the lush north shore rain or shine. Hanalei Bay is a beautiful natural port without loading docks. Our knowledgeable crew provides light narration as they take you down this secluded coastline to a land lost in time. We love to pull under cascading waterfalls that drop into the ocean, alongside majestic cliffs and explore ancient sea caves. As we first head out, be camera ready and keep your eyes open for pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, monk seals, whales (in season) and other marine life. We’ll stop for a full hour for lunch on aboard and snorkeling midway through. The return ride back to Hanalei is a guaranteed Hawaiian roller coaster ride!
We provide snorkel gear, foam noodles, and dry bags for personal items. A light sandwich
lunch is included on all snorkel tours, which includes the following:
Choice of turkey or veggie* sandwich made dry on wheat flat bread with cheese, lettuce, cucumber, sprouts, and onion. *Condiments on the side and veggie sandwiches come with a side of humus.
Assorted chips & local fresh baked cookie
Bottled water, assorted soft drinks, and island juices
