Niihau & Na Pali Coast Snorkeling & Sailing Tour

Explore Kauai’s Na Pali Coast, and snorkel the world-class waters of Lehua Crater off the “Forbidden Island” of Niihau, all in one day.

After sailing along Na Pali Coast, a must-see on Kauai, cross the Kaulakahi Channel to Niihau Island, known as the “Forbidden Island”. Discover wild marine life in one of Hawaii’s most pristine snorkeling spots. This 7-hour boat tour includes breakfast, lunch, drinks (including beer and wine), and snorkel equipment rental.

Depart from Port Allen at sunrise for the world-famous Na Pali Coast. The captain and crew will explain the legends, stories, and history of Kauai’s northern coastline as you view sheer cliffs, waterfalls, secluded beaches, and wild marine life.

We will then cross the Kaulakahi Channel to Lehua Crater off the island of Niihau. The crescent-shaped crater is a state wildlife refuge. The area near Lehua Crater is also known for its many seabird species, including endangered and endemic species. The captain will also tell you the origin of Niihau’s name as the Forbidden Island, as well as the island’s history and stories.

The waters near Lehua Crater and Niihau are among the most beautiful in Hawaii and are known for clear visibility. You can see Hawaii’s endemic fish, monk seals, manta rays, underwater lava cathedrals, and more. The captain will select the best snorkeling spots based on the weather conditions of the day. Snorkeling usually lasts about an hour along the outer edge of Lehua Crater or off the coast of Niihau.

After snorkeling, enjoy a deli-style lunch on the boat. Drinks, including beer and wine, are available on board.
