Exploring the sea caves of Na Pali Coast is the highlight of our raft tours. The sea caves along the Na Pali Coast are formed from the harsh wave action of the Pacific Ocean slamming into the porous lava. With our Zodiac® raft, we are able to enter sea caves, making for a truly up close and personal experience with the Na Pali Coast.
*Please note that entering sea caves is conditions permitting.
The Open Ceiling Cave
This cave is actually a hollowed-out lava tube, and may have served as a place where ancient Hawaiians could rest in their canoes when traveling along the coast. To this day, we do not know what the Hawaiians called this cave, hence the "Open Ceiling Cave" best describes it. This natural cathedral boasts turquoise blue water, massive walls, and a bright sunlit interior.
On calm days, Na Pali Riders can safely enter the Open Ceiling Cave with the Zodiac® raft. The interior is large enough to circle around and treat passengers to a view of the sky above through the enormous open ceiling.
Waiahuakua Sea Cave
At 1,155 feet in length, the Waiahuakua Sea Cave is second on the list in rank for the world's longest sea caves. This dark and spooky sea cave has a separate entrance and exit, and is thus referred to as the Double-Door Cave.
Inside the cave, a lively waterfall gushes down through a hole in the ceiling. Passengers get the total "Pirate's of the Caribbean" experience when venturing through the Waiahuakua Sea Cave.
Ho'olulu Sea Cave
This cave was once a fishing area for Hawaiians. A freshwater waterfall streams over the entrance, and is a favorite for passengers to duck their head under for a refresher along the tour.
