Na Pali Snorkel Adventure
Today I looked up some information about what it's like to snorkel in Na Pali, Hawaii and here's what I found. I find it very convenient that there is a raft that picks people up from shore to go off and start enjoying yourselves. You get to do sight seeing, the tourists tell you stories about how these different areas and coasts were founded by Hawaiians and made their home. Depending on the weather conditions of the day, that will determine when the tour will end and after that, you will be shown to a nice shallow enough area where you and your friends and or family members can snorkel and enjoy the different sites such as how beautiful the water is, the colorful fish, and so much more. Also if you're new to snorkeling they provide flotation aids in order for you to get the hang of snorkeling under water. They have a pretty convenient section in Tahiti Nui for tourists to park their cars and to check in for a hotel to stay in. I honestly think that for people that are either new to Hawaii or returning visitors would enjoy themselves for a number of reasons such as, the fact that this trip includes a cruise for sightseeing, bottled water, a variety of beverages, lunch and more. I want to let you know that if you have back problems or are pregnant, I would not advise you to go snorkeling. In the event that the weather is poor you will get the choice to reschedule or receive a full refund. I would highly recommend a trip like this in the early summer.
Tour Kauai's Na Pali Coast aboard a High Speed Raft.
The adventure begins when you leave from the shore of scenic Hanalei Bay and we shuttle you by dinghy to your rigid hull inflatable raft which is anchored just offshore. There, you'll do a "dry-transfer", stow your gear, grab a seat and get ready for the experience of a lifetime.
Minutes after leaving the bay, the spectacular Na Pali Coast comes into view and you see why its dramatic cliffs and beaches have enchanted painters, authors and travelers for centuries... and we're just getting started!
As we travel down the coast, your crew and Captain entertain your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once made this coast their home. From sea-level you really get a feel for the tremendous scale of Na Pali. Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles and seabirds which are often seen on our tours.
Depending on the ocean conditions the day of your raft tour, we'll stop and snorkel at one of several protected and shallow areas which will be teeming with tropical fish. Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses if you need them), snorkels, and flotation aids are all provided. If you're new to snorkeling, our crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure.
After you have a chance to snorkel and relax on the Na Pali Coast, we'll serve a tasty sandwich lunch before we head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay. Expect to get wet and bring a lightweight jacket.
