Seize the adventure! Your raft tour begins on our 30-foot Zodiac© rigid-hull, inflatable raft. We take you to Kauai’s remote Na Pali Coast for an unforgettable day of fun. Along the way you will be treated to playful pods of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins and/or Bottlenose dolphins. You may even see Hawaiian green sea turtles and the occasional endangered Hawaiian monk seal. In the winter months, Hawaiian Humpback whales abound. In the summer months, sea caves are open for exploration and waters are calm and warm for snorkeling. Call us today and book with Na Pali Riders Raft Tours!

Disregard comments about disappointment when cancelling or postponing the ride. The ocean can get unruly quickly and you don't wanna be out there if they don't think it'll be safe. This was a great adventure – not a tour. It was bumpy, wet and a...More

We loved the speed and personal nature of the rafting trip with Na Pali Riders, in and out of the caves and really entertaining and informative commentary as we cruised the coastline. A fabulous day!

Outstanding trip, we considered the catamaran trips but they were booked out which turned out to be a blessing as the smaller boat was able to go into the caves. Saws Jesus of dolphins and the operators were fun and informative. Well recommended.

This is a really fun half day out for those with an adventurous spirit! The zodiac boats are not for the faint-hearted. You sit up on the inflated sides, holding on to ropes to keep you stable, zipping across the ocean at high speeds. I...More
