Seize the adventure! Your raft tour begins on our 30-foot Zodiac© rigid-hull, inflatable raft. We take you to Kauai’s remote Na Pali Coast for an unforgettable day of fun. Along the way you will be treated to playful pods of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins and/or Bottlenose dolphins. You may even see Hawaiian green sea turtles and the occasional endangered Hawaiian monk seal. In the winter months, Hawaiian Humpback whales abound. In the summer months, sea caves are open for exploration and waters are calm and warm for snorkeling. Call us today and book with Na Pali Riders Raft Tours!

Thank you for your feedback, and we understand your disappointment in not being allowed to enter the sea caves or snorkel on your tour date. As we get into fall and winter season, the northwestern shores of the Hawaiian Islands will receive greater surf height...More

Since there are no roads to see the Na Pali coastline, you have to view it by sea or air. The 30 foot Zodiac rafts are very safe and give a thrilling ride. Captain Chris is very experienced and points out things of interest and...More

The tour started by getting bogus directions from the receptionist. Then we were met by the owner of the company who didn't introduce himself. When we got on the boat he made a inappropriate comment to my wife which was rude. He was insensitive and...More
