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.

Captain Ian is super fun and friendly and Alejandra is super nice as well. We had a great time with them.
Must Do, preferably your first morning

Fabulous introduction to Kuaui! Captain Ian and First Mate Landon brought the stunning Na Pali coastline alive explaining what we were seeing with amazing stories of the history and culture of early Hawaiian life. The raft tour allowed us to see inside the caves and also the many waterfalls up close, and if you’re lucky, a huge pod of curious Spinner Dolphins. Snorkeling was also great; we saw sea turtles feeding and beautiful species of fish. Perfect for fit people of all ages.
Beautiful - for fit bods

Beautiful and thrilling. Informative. However, do not go on this trip if you are not in good shape. Even my spouse - who is in excellent shape - is a bit sore today. Tradewinds can make waves a hash chop and it is a looong trek back. Mahalo!
Fun and venturous.

Just what we needed. Got to see more of the island without walking all day. Captain had plenty jokes and lines with music to get everyone having a great time!
Fun 🐬

CJ and Ian were so kind and entertaining during our trip! It was a bummer we were not able to snorkel but we loved the experience!
, May 2022
The most memorable moment was when we were into the last tunnel and everyone had to turn off the headlamps. It was definitely fun when roaming in there without being able to see anything. Bryant was also very entertaining and knew a lot of fun facts from the island.
Not as advertised - be prepared for a sore rear end!

This tour is not properly advertised. It is a THRILL ride. You will spend 4+ hours of the total 5.5 hours sitting on the hard sides of the raft bumping up and down at very high and sometimes full speeds (max 28 mph). We traveled 70 miles round trip. I very much enjoyed doing this but only for 30-45 minutes total! The topography and views were stunning, however. It was exciting entering the two caves. The snorkeling wasn’t even mediocre and a shark was sighted by another passenger.

Amazing trip! See caves were the highlight for us! Our captain was wonderful along with his helper! Sooo glad we toughed it out to go on this amazing trip of a lifetime!
