NaPali Explorer

The charter company, Napali Explorer, is unusual in terms of its Na Pali Coast tours as compared to other companies. First of all it uses rigid hulled inflatable boats but not the normal variety, these boats are big with one having a capacity for eighteen people and another with a capacity for thirty-six. These boats have been proven to be ideal for the conditions surrounding the Na Pali area and the boats are among the fastest on the water. Although these boats are capable of moving at high speeds they are also very stable and seaworthy in the water. Jacques Cousteau popularized the Zodiac inflatable boat which features a hull composed of flexible rubber tubes and a rubber bottom. A RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) replaces the rubber bottom of a Zodiac with a hard, rigid hull, allowing higher speeds in rough ocean conditions and is generally much more suitable for the waters of Kauai. The comforts of Napali Explorer's adventure rafts are second to none and the 48' Explorer II is the largest boat of its type in the United States. These boats are great for investigating the white sand beaches, rock archways and caves of the Na Pali Coast and is an excitement just waiting to happen.
