See the Nā Pali Coast in style and avoid the crowds!  Your private charter begins on our sparkling, 28-foot Glacier Bay© catamaran with a maximum of 6 persons per charter.  The boat deck is 100% shaded, with comfortable seating all around.  We take you to Kauai’s remote Nā Pali Coast for an unforgettable day of adventure. Along the way you will be treated to playful pods of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins and/or Bottlenose dolphins.  You may even see Hawaiian green sea turtles and the occasional endangered Hawaiian monk seal.  In the winter months, Hawaiian Humpback whales abound.

The boat will continue past miles of white, sandy beaches, until the first cliffs of Nā Pali Coast are reached.  You will be treated to incredible scenery including magnificent beaches, towering cliffs, verdant valleys, thundering waterfalls, and mysterious sea caves. The entire tour is narrated and filled with history and lore. There will be ample time for snorkeling in a pristine bay (conditions permitting).  A full meal will be provided.
