Best Things To Do When Visiting Kauai

Are you dreaming of Kauai?

Kauai has so much natural beauty to offer visitors, it’s no wonder that people return again and again.  So many wonders of nature are to be found on the Garden Island.  One place that commands attention is Kauai’s Napali Coast.  The Napali Coast may be hiked, and is famous for the 11-mile Kalalau Trail, which ends at Kalalau Beach.  This hike is completely challenging, even for the most experienced hiker.  The trail begins at the end of Highway 56, at Ke’e Beach Park.  It weaves along the steep, volcanic cliffs of Napali Coast, winding along the most beautiful landscape imaginable.

Na Pali Riders also offers visitors a way to see the Napali Coast from the sea.  Our raft tours launch from Waimea, the west shore of Kaua’i.  From here, we approach Napali Coast from the western side (aka the sunny, dry side).  Our tours continue up to Ke’e Beach.  The stunning scenery provides a backdrop to Hawaiian Spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, tropical seabirds, flying fish, and Humpback whales (in season between Dec.-May).  The raft itself is an adventure, because you feel like you’re on a wild expedition, riding the pontoons of the 30-foot Sea Biscuit, certified by the U.S. Coast Guard, and powered with 300-HP engines.  It’s definitely a thrilling ride, and not for the faint-at-heart, and certainly an experience that will live in your memory bank forever.
