Ni'ihau and Na Pali Coast Super Snorkel Cruise

    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.

    All round 11/10. Yes, we were lucky with the weather, but even without a superb sea, it would still have been top notch. Great snorkeling off Ni'ihau (a full hour in which we swam with Monk Seals and a virtual aquarium of fish), great boat...More

    Had the pleasure of taking my grand girls on this cruise. Was remarkable from start to finish. The crew, Captain W, Kama, Jay and Kamaili were AWESOME. The food was delicious! The snorkeling the best!!! And they even had gluten free bread!

    The tour of the Napali coast was great, although I would have liked a little more coverage of the valley where the trail comes down at the Napali Coast State Park. The problem is that once that tour is completed, perhaps two hours in, you...More

    The ride back to Port Allen is very rough. At least 4 or 5 people were sick. But, if tend not to get sea-sickness, then go! This is the best snorkel trip I've ever taken!
