NaPali Snorkel - Explorer II - NaPali Explorer
The Na Pali Explorer II allows for a more comfortable yet still adventuresome ride. This experience will bring into view the Na Pali Coastline, secluded beaches and marine life. Swim and snorkel near a protected reef, where crystal clear waters teem with fish, coral formations and other marine life. Explorer II is a large raft that features a smooth ride with cushioned seats, a canopy top for shade and a bathroom. Snorkeling takes place off of the vessel. There will not be a beach landing.
During the summer months, enjoy up close experiences with dramatic cliffs and incredible sea caves. During the winter, see the majestic Pacific Humpback Whales. Here from late November through early April, the whales come down from Alaska to mate and give birth to their young. Known for their curious and playful nature, the whales will often come right up next to our boats. Sea cave entering and snorkeling based on ocean/weather conditions. Winter tours may reroute to a south side tour at any given point, depending on ocean/weather conditions.

Average Product Rating: 5.0 / 5
We opted to do this tour as the size of the boat would allow us to go in and out of caves on the coast. Everything was great! On the way out we saw some spinning dolphins which were super cool. Both of the captains were very knowledgeable about the area and gave us lots of interesting facts. We ended up snorkeling on a reef where the water was calm and it was so beautiful! The caves were amazing, and we were even able to go under a waterfall. Of all the tours I did in Hawaii, this was the BEST LUNCH we had. The bread was amazing! Overall great trip definitely recommend.
My husband and I had a wonderful time! Well worth the money for us and we will definitely be recommending this tour to our friends and family that visit Kauai! Mahalo
