Experience the Majestic NaPali Coast 3 Tours Daily 4 hour tours, "Early Bird" 7:30am-11:30am -"Photo Favorite" 12:30pm-4:30pm 2 Hour "Evening Tour" 5:15pm-7:15pm Departing from Hanalei Bay, sightseeing and snorkeling the majestic Na Pali Coast is the experience of a lifetime. Established in 1972, Na Pali Catamaran has a perfect safety score as well as a new 35' Power Catamaran. Offering shade and protection, the Kamahele Kai II is powerful, spacious and comfortable. Because Kamahele Kai II has no sail, we take you into many secret and sacred sea caves while introducing you to dolphins, sea turtles and seasonal Humpback whales along the way. Kamahele Kai II is built to carry 24, but we limit our passenger count to 18, allowing us to snorkel Kauai's world renown Nualolo State Park!! Na Pali Catamaran offers both 2 hour and 4 hour excursions daily. Please call or book online now. YOUR experience of a lifetime awaits you!

We went on as a group of 4 people. Initially, I was disappointed this was not an actual catamaran boat but more similar to a pontoon or even regular boat. Sitting under the canopy is cramped but once under way then people stood or went...More

Aloha, Mahalo for taking the time to give us feedback! We really appreciate it. Yeah, it's much easier to go on a 4-hour boat trip to see the Na Pali, then a 11-mile hike, huh? And we even go beyond that where it's only boat...More

No there are no nets to lie down on, but there are comfortable chairs and a small area in the front of the boat to look out from with some seating. This tour was without doubt one of the highlights of our trip to Kauai.
