Different Types Of Raft Tours on Kauai

Before you know what to expect on your tour, you have to know what kind of raft tour you are going on. While there are some key differences, they do share some similarities as well.

Snorkeling Raft Tours on Kauai

Touring the Kauai coastline on a snorkeling raft is an amazing experience. You’ll get to see parts of the island that you can’t see from the shore, and the underwater world is full of wonders. The best part is that you don’t need any experience to enjoy a tour – the guides will take care of everything. Before you know it, you’ll be slipping into the water and exploring Kauai’s underwater paradise.

During your tour, you can expect to see a wide variety of fish and other marine life. The guides will make sure that you have plenty of time to explore and take pictures, and they’ll also point out some of the more interesting things to look for. At the end of the tour, you’ll be able to relax on the raft and enjoy the scenic ride back to shore. Snorkeling raft tours are a great way to see Kauai from a whole new perspective – book one today and see for yourself!

Adventure/Sightseeing Raft Tours on the Na Pali Coast

These tours can offer snorkeling but are mainly oriented towards seeing the cool off-shore locations that Kauai’s coastline has to offer.

With Na Pali Riders, we have an adventure tour and our sea cave exploration tour. Both of these are fantastic ways to explore the hard-to-reach areas of Kauai’s coastlines and witness the breathtaking cave formations that lay on the Na Pali coast.

What Sea Raft Tours Have In Common

Sea rafting is one of the most popular activities on Kauai, and for good reason. There’s nothing quite like hurtling through the waves on a small, durable craft, surrounded by the immense power of the ocean. And while all sea raft tours are exciting, there are some that are particularly thrilling. For those who want to test their limits, tours that venture into the open ocean are sure to deliver an adrenaline rush.

Prepare For Your Kauai Raft Tour

To prepare for your raft tour, think of what you’ll want to have when out on a raft in the ocean for a while. In our opinion, the most important things are:

  1. Light clothing that dries easily – UV protection clothing will definitely be a good choice.
  2. Sunscreen – you burn easier on the water and you want to make sure you are covered up and protecting your skin.
  3. Eat a light and healthy meal – you don’t want to fill your stomach with heavy foods before a raft tour. It will be bumpy and wild, so eat something you know you can keep down.
  4. Sunglasses/Hats/Visors are key to protecting your eyes – Just remember to have some that can tie down to your head so you don’t lose them!
  5. Swimsuit and towel – these are the basics that you should bring for any water activities!

Get Ready For Fun!

Raft tours are one of the best ways to see the island, and you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views of the coastline as you move along the coast. Kauai is home to some of the best boat tours in the world, and you’ll be able to find plenty of tour operators who can take you on an adventure of a lifetime. So what are you waiting for?
