Overview
Cruise the Na Pali Coast on a sunset dinner cruise that explores an area of Kauai that’s impossible to reach by car. Travel in a comfortable catamaran with indoor and outdoor seating as you see emerald valleys, waterfalls, and sea caves from the ocean. As the sun goes down, enjoy drinks, appetizers, and a buffet dinner served on deck while someone else handles the navigation.
Highlights
  • Capture gorgeous sunset photos of the Na Pali Coast
  • Choosing a catamaran means a more stable ride
  • Chance to see sea turtles, dolphins, and whales
  • Enjoy beer, wine, fresh juice, and mai tais
What to Expect
Grab a jacket and make your way to the Port Allen marina to board a 65-foot (20-meter) power catamaran for the scenic trip to the Na Pali Coast, which wraps 16 miles (26 kilometers) around Kauai’s northwestern edge. Watch for sea turtles and dolphins as you cruise, with the chance to see whales during the migration season of December through April. Drinks, Champagne, and appetizers will be served as you approach the Na Pali Coast’s jagged cliffs and valleys, and as the sunset turns the coast a rosy hue. Enjoy dinner on the boat, then begin the return trip to the Punta Allen marina, traveling back along the coast for an entirely different perspective. This Na Pali Coast dinner cruise concludes at the original departure point.
