Seize the adventure!  Your raft tour begins on our 30-foot Zodiac© rigid-hull, inflatable raft.  We take you to Kauai’s remote Nā Pali Coast for an unforgettable day of fun. 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 tour 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).  Light snacks and beverages are served.

WARNING:  Due to the nature of the raft tour, you must be in good physical condition to attend this tour. We cannot accommodate pregnant women, anyone with back or neck problems, medical conditions or recent surgeries.
