Dive in for the ultimate experience along the Na Pali Coast aboard the 49 foot catamaran the Na Pali Kai III. This vessel is equipped with powerful twin 315 hp Cummins diesel engines with Sea Fury surface drives that give a fast and comfortable ride.

The Makana is a comfortable 32’ custom built Lightning Catamaran is powered by twin eco-friendly diesel Steyr engines (500 hp) cruising at 20 to 22 knots. We are Coast Guard certified for 19 passengers but our seating is limited to only 12 passengers for your safety and comfort.

Amenities on board include: private restroom, shaded cabin with cushioned seats, fresh water shower and easy access for snorkeling. For an incredible snorkeling experience (ocean conditions permitting), we provide you with top of the line snorkeling equipment and an excellent selection of flotation devices.

For your palate’s satisfaction, we serve an excellent deli lunch with fruits and snacks. We provide cold drinks and bottled water on both am and pm tours.

Explore sea caves

Throughout the coastline are several caves big enough for the boat to pass into. Sometimes under a big swell we cannot do this, but we will do our best. Makana is one of the largest tour boats that can fit into these caves – an experience you will definitely remember. Your adventure will be unfortgetable, book now.


We will stop for lunch where we can relax, have a bite, as well as go snorkeling. The crystal-clear waters on the Na Pali coast will leave you breathless, even with a snorkel! You will see dozens of fish species, coral reefs, and even the occasional sea turtle saying hello. Don’t miss out and book now, you’ll love the adventure.

Dolphins Every Day!

As we make our approach to the coast, the boat is often visited by a group of dolphins. While we do not guarantee that you will see dolphins, we will say that the majority of our trips will see them and your chances are good. Be sure to have your camera ready, as they are fast creatures able to keep up with the speed of our boat.

The story behind the family

Of course the main attraction is the majestic Na Pali Coast. North of Polihale the coastline dramatically rises over a thousand feet to mark the beginning of the Na Pali Coast. Each successive ridge and mountain is unique. The vegetation slowly changes from the dry, red-tinted west Kauai climate into the lush, green, wet North Shore climate. No matter what the weather is like, you will be treated with awe-inspiring views. Clouds just add to the mystique of such a wondrous landscape. Even when it is raining, you will be treated with seeing hundreds of waterfalls bringing life to the landscape. Some of these originate high in the mountaintops thousands of feet above. Others spring out of the rock as if a giant drill tapped into the mountainside, releasing streams that come out of the ground.

We depart from sunny Kekaha Small Boat Harbor, the closest departure point from the Na Pali Coast. This allows you to spend more time enjoying the coast.

Enjoy a private tour of the Na Pali coast on one of our group charters. Perfect for groups of 8-12 people. Advance purchase required. Tours often sell out!

Check-in: 8:00am
Departure: 8:30am

Five hours after departing we return to Kikiaola harbor, you will step foot on land once again, taking some of the magic of the Na Pali Coast back with you.

We had an incredible time with Captain Rob and Daryl.
