Explore everything the Na Pali Coast has to offer on this ocean rafting adventure! Delve into spectacular sea caves, feel the rush of cascading waterfalls and enjoy sweeping views of all the peaks and valleys of the gorgeous Na Pali Coast. Land at Nualolo Kai, a remote beach on the coast for some hiking, snorkeling, and a delicious beach-side lunch. Take a guided historical hike to the ruins of a 800-year-old Hawaiian village and explore the still-thriving reefs at which the ancient Hawaiians once fished.
This adventure tour will take place in an ocean raft. These rafts combine a rigid aluminum hull with a buoyant inflatable tube to produce a virtually unsinkable boat. Stable and very buoyant, these motorized rigid hull rafts, known as rigid hull inflatable rafts or "zodiacs," maneuver quickly and expertly in any type of water, allowing you to explore caves and land on secluded beaches along the Na Pali Coast. This vessel has a capacity of 14 passengers allowing for a personal, intimate ride.

Beach Landing: When conditions allow, we'll land on a remote beach – Nualolo Kai – for hiking, snorkeling, and a delicious lunch.

Please Note: Due to ocean conditions from October through April, the beach landing is conditional based on current ocean activity. If the ocean conditions is too rough, a beach landing will not be guaranteed. We have discounted this tour based on these facts.

    • Whale sightings are not guaranteed, but are often spotted during the winter months from December to April.
    What will happen if conditions are too rough?
