Explore the untamed natural landscape of the Na Pali Coast on a quick, maneuverable ocean raft! Weave in and out of mysterious sea caves, exploring the vast caverns that were carved out of the mountain by rain and waves over millennia. Zip under and around the cascading waterfalls that fall hundreds of feet and see remarkable views of the dramatic cliffs and plunging valleys of Na Pali. Depart early for a 3-hour cave patrolling cruise, or book a longer adventure for snorkeling and even a beach landing!
This adventure tour will take place on 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 craft, known as rigid hull inflatable rafts or "zodiacs," maneuver quickly and expertly in any type of water, allowing you to actually enter and explore the sea caves of the Na Pali coast, an impossible task for larger vessels. This ocean raft has a capacity of 14 passengers allowing for a personal, intimate ride with a smaller group.
