Overview
See Kauai’s spectacular Na Pali coastline both above and below the water on a catamaran snorkel tour. Because no roads access the coast’s towering spires and sea caves, a boat tour is the best way to experience one of Hawaii’s most famous sights. Look for marine life as you snorkel and swim in the clear Pacific waters, or go deeper with an optional scuba upgrade.
Highlights
  • Get stellar views of Kauai's remote Na Pali coast from the water
  • Deluxe catamaran has ample deck space and a built-in waterslide
  • Snorkel or scuba in a spot hand-picked by the crew
  • Includes onboard lunch and unlimited drinks from the bar
What to Expect
At Port Allen near Hanapepe Bay, board a spacious, 65-foot catamaran. After a quick safety briefing, sail up Kauai’s west coast while enjoying a continental breakfast (on morning tours). Learn about the island’s coastal legends and see points of interest along the way. Relax and enjoy views of the coast’s towering spires, open sea caves, and emerald valleys. Stop at the best location scouted by your captain and crew to snorkel, splash down the boat’s waterslide, or float on boogie boards. If you selected the scuba upgrade, explore the ocean floor on a certified or introductory dive. Keep an eye out for green sea turtles, manta rays, dolphins, and colorful fish. After about an hour of water playtime, enjoy a deli-style lunch prepared by the crew. Sip unlimited drinks from the bar, and enjoy a champagne sunset toast as you sail back to Port Allen (afternoon tours only).

I am one of those that gets sea sick very easily. Read reviews and saw all the advice if you take precaution you'll be fine. I had my Dr give me an Rx for the patch behind the ear and i also had the wrist bands with the pressure points. No problems and we went on a very rough

Awesome crew. Really funny and attentive. We were able to see many whales and dolphins up close on the boat. The captain seemed to be very good at spotting them. One word of advice, the boat goes quite fast and the waters on the west side of the island are quite choppy. Many

This is the second tour I have done with Blue Dolphin and it was amazing, yet again. The crew both times was awesome, treat you like family and makes sure you are doing well. I took a tour with them two years ago in March, after Kauai had lots of rain. We had a smooth sail, no
