Kauai Sea Tours , 4353 Waialo Rd #2B, Eleele, HI 96705, USA

We are located in the Port Allen Marina Center, on the Island of Kauai. Head West on HWY 50. Turn left at McDonald's (JCT 541 Waialo Rd.) Look for Kauai Sea Tours on your right. Continue to the end of the complex, turn right and we are the 3rd lot on your left! Proceed to the office to check-in.

This activity will end right where it started.
Kauai’s Na Pali Coast is a dramatic, 16-mile (26-km) stretch of jagged cliffs and emerald valleys along the island’s northwestern shore. The best way to view the spectacular scenery is from the water. Begin your adventure at Port Allen Marina Center, where you meet your friendly captain and crew. After a safety briefing and storage of your personal items in a dry bag, hop aboard a 14-person inflatable, motorized raft.

Your nimble vessel allows the group to get close to the shore and dart in and out of sea caves and under waterfalls (weather permitting). As you cruise along the coast, your crew shares information and legends about the landscape and help you spot passing marine life such as dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. Don a provided snorkeling mask and fins, then splash into the clear waters at Nu‘alolo Kai to explore one of the best coral reefs in Kauai.

Take a break partway through the tour for an onboard picnic of a gourmet sandwich, fresh tropical fruit, chips, and cookies. Beverages are provided throughout the journey so you stay hydrated.

Your coastal adventure concludes back at Port Allen.

The best boat ride of my life!!!

The 2 guides were so amazing. We’ve been on many excursions this trip but none of our guides compared to these two. CJ AND his partner were so much fun and I always felt safe. What a beautiful island. Glad we got to see it from the ocean.

One of the best tours we've ever done. The crew was amazing and really informative. (Ask for Skye and Landon) The Na Pali coast is one of the most beautiful places on earth and on this tour you get to drive into sea caves along the coastline. Could not recommend this more.

Extremely well organized and professionally done. Captain Drake and Noah showed incredibly attention to safety, yet made the experience extremely informative and fun. Views of NaPail were breathtaking, and going deep into the sea caves was awesome. One of the best days of our lives! Would highly recommend, giving it 7 out of 5 stars!

Views WOW but Extreme Level Adventure

Did a girls trip and were excited to get out on the water and up close and personal with the caves and waterfalls of Na Pali. I had a blast!! Loved snorkeling with sea turtles, seeing dolphins, and learning so many exciting facts about the sites we passed. However, this was a much more of a wild ride than expected and my friends were terrified. Lots of bouncing and need to hold on for your life for 5 hours. Fantastic experience but not for people who aren’t high level activity explorers. I loved the waves and truly enjoyed the ocean experience. Boat operators Drake and Mercedes were wonderful guides/crew.

We had an amazing adventure rafting up and down the coast. Captain Matt was very skilled and knowledgeable about the history of the area. My youngest was 9 and was too short to sit on the side of the boat but was completely safe the entire time! Thanks for the memories!

Jake and Landon were fantastic! A day of fun filled with a ton of dolphins, sea caves and waterfalls only able to be seen via raft. We were able to go into caves that other boats and catamarans cannot fit into. Jake and Landon’s knowledge of Hawaiian history and the Na Pali coastline was a great addition to the already amazing views. They handled the boat with care despite moderately rocky waters on the way back. If you’re even thinking about doing this trip, do it, you won’t regret it. With that being said, there are other reviews about sea sickness and rocky water conditions etc, however if you like rollercoasters, you will thrive on this excursion!!!

Our boat captain, Matt V, was awesome! He was so knowledgeable about the history of the Na Pali coast and made the entire trip great! Noah, our co-captain, had great energy and awesome tunes going during the ride. This was the #1 highlight of our trip - going into caves, seeing dolphin and experiencing the stunning coast. Well worth it - enjoy!

Drake and Justin were our tour guides/captain. They made the trip even more incredible. Would highly recommend the raft to those that are wanting more of an adventure instead of a smooth boring boat ride.

So beautiful! A must do! The ride can be very rough but such a fun adventure. The rafts are cool because as long as the swell is calm, you can go into the caves.

Tour canceled 45 minutes prior to start d/t Covid
Kendyl_B
, May 2022
Trip was cancelled 45 minutes verify we started (we had already arrived as we where coming from 1 hour away). The only thing offered was a refund (which we won’t get back for 5-7 days) and a seat on a day we won’t be on the island for. Yeah I get that was all they could do but this was because the captain for sick with covid. I’m sure it would have been great if we had the opportunity to go. I was real excited for this as I snorkel on all my trips and this is my honeymoon. I’m giving 1 star bc while sometimes Covid is not preventable, the fact that we got this news right before the tour started which is not professional service. If we had gotten the news a few hours earlier we wouldn’t have made the trip and would Have had time to book something else but everything was full or we wouldn’t make it there in time (another company snorkel tour)

The Na Pali coast is a must see! Our captain and crew were the best. Being on a Zodiac we were kept safe but also gave us access to places other boats couldn't go. Snorkeling was fun but the sights and stories really made the trip. This trip was worth every cent!
