Na Pali Experience
We are located at Kikiaʻola Small Boat Harbor in Kekaha, Kauaʻi, Hawaiʻi. Kikiaola Small Boat Harbor is the closest official boat harbor to the Na Pali Coast. Our harbor is also perfectly positioned just inside of where the highest odds of dolphin and our seasonal humpback whale encounters take place. We are very fortunate to be one of the few companies to have the privilege to operate out of this ideal boarding location.
Kikiaʻola Small Boat Harbor is very easy to find but if you have any questions please call us at 808-635-1131 to get clarification. It is better to be safe and on time than late and sorry!
Remember, we are on the WESTSIDE of Kauaʻi just past MILE MARKER 24.
From Lihue Airport:
- Exit the Airport onto Ahukini Rd
- Drive 1 mile and turn left onto HI-56 (Kuhio Hwy) South
- Continue onto HI-50 W/Kaumualii Hwy (for 24.4 miles)
- Turn left at Kikia’ola Small Boat Harbor
Use the provided color chart to calculate the time it will take you to drive to us. It is advised that guests on any of our tours with departures later than 8:00am add a little extra time to allow for the possibility of heavy traffic.
Very Important: In the summer months, if you are on our Morning Magic tour, you will likely be one of the first cars to park. The way you park will influence every car afterwards.
Please pull into the grassy field on the right and park up against the coconut trees with white painted rings around their bases. DO NOT park past them.
For those of you on our later departing tours, please park in line with the cars that are already there. Parking is free all day long for Na Pali Experience guests.
