Na Pali and Ni'ihau The Forbidden Island Kauai Snorkel Cruise
From US$246.24
Overview
Uncover the ancient legends and dramatic landscapes of the Na Pali Coast and the  ‘Forbidden Island’ of Ni’ihau on this sailing and snorkeling adventure. Cruise alongside the towering emerald spires and remote beaches of Kauai’s breathtaking, rugged shore in a state-of-the-art catamaran, and snorkel among native marine life in the reefs just off Ni’ihau’s mysterious shores. Hear tales of Hawaiian history and mythology from the friendly crew, and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch onboard.
What to Expect
Discover the secrets of two of Hawaii’s most captivating destinations on this full-day sailing adventure. Meet your experienced captain and crew at Port Allen in the morning, and climb aboard a 65-foot (20-meter) catamaran equipped with an inside cabin, restrooms, spacious sundecks and lounging trampolines where you can relax and soak up the ocean spray.
Enjoy a continental breakfast onboard as the vessel makes its way along Kauai’s northwestern Na Pali Coast, characterized by green sea cliffs that reach dizzying heights of 4,000 feet (1,200 meters), pocketed by lush valleys, tropical waterfalls and remote beaches. As you cruise, hear royal Hawaiian legends that surround the coastline and keep an eye out for traveling sea life including spinner dolphins, sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (December through April).
Next, head across a channel to the waters surrounding Ni’ihau, known as the ‘Forbidden Island of Hawaii’ due to its secretive community that’s closed to all outsiders. While it's not possible to visit Ni’ihau, admire the island from the water while learning about its unique history and mythology. Strap on a snorkeling mask and fins to explore the coral reefs around the island and the nearby Lehua Crater, considered among the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii.
A tasty buffet lunch and refreshments on board will keep you going throughout the day (see Itinerary for sample breakfast and lunch menus). Prepare to get wet, and bring a light jacket to stay comfortable on this unforgettable sailing adventure.

Seas were rough but did not stop us from having the best time.

We were not able to go snorkeling as the weather was rough at sea. We still would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the coast close up without flying there. The staff, Caption Drew, Jess, and of course (Comma), were delightful and...More

Fantastic trip

What a fantastic trip. Captain Wendell and crew were amazing. We toured the coast, snorkeled with great tropical fish, had a nice lunch and a very fun ride back to the port. I would absolutely recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Kauai.

Nice Boat ride, great crew, nice view of the coast line, the snorkeling was ok. But the ride back was worth the trip.
