Sea Cave Raft Adventure Snorkel

Napali Coast is famous for its numerous sea caves, beaches, and waterfalls so we have created an excursion that gets you up close to the action for adventure seekers looking for something exciting!

In our rigid inflatable raft we'll speed along and explore the hidden corners of the incredible coastline. Our nimble speed boats are maneuverable enough to enter multiple different miraculous caves, some with open ceilings and waterfalls flowing through them before finishing our adventure with snorkeling over the tropical coral reef.

*Please book early as tours often fill up 3-5 days in advance. Booking your tour early in your vacation window is a good idea in case weather forces us to postpone your tour.

*For safety, no children under 6 years of age or pregnant women allowed on this tour.

What to Expect

We'll shuttle you by dinghy from Hanalei Beach to our adventure tour boat waiting just offshore in the bay. Our crew will help dry transfer you onboard our tour boat, stow your gear safe and dry, and start up the twin 225hp engine. The adventure begins as we speed towards the Napali Coast, faster than any boat around at speeds of up to 30kts.

Once we are along the Napali Coast we will hug the coast and dodge in and out of multiple sea caves (open-ceilings caves, waterfalls caves, lava tube caves, etc) enjoy sightseeing the untouched beaches and valleys of Honopu and Kalalau, gaze at giant waterfalls running straight down to the ocean, while our guides tell stories and history of the area.

Next, we will find calm anchorage for snorkeling. The snorkeling location will depend on the conditions as the Captain has expert knowledge of the area and its numerous snorkeling locations to provide you with the best experience. If you’re new to snorkeling, our crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure.

Because of the Napali Coast's sheer remoteness, the coral reef is the healthiest in Hawaii attracting a variety of marine life such as tropical fish, green sea turtles, spotty eagle rays, eels, and even the occasional pod of dolphins.

After you have a chance to snorkel and relax on the Napali Coast, we’ll serve a tasty sandwich lunch before we head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay.
