Our Boats

Choosing the right boat for your Na Pali coast tour is very important. Do you want to simply “see” Na Pali or do you want to “experience” Na Pali? All things considered, we believe our four identical power catamarans are the most practical choice for Na Pali. The table below highlights the undeniable advantages and disadvantages to each of the different style of boats that tour along Na Pali to aid you in your decision.

Note: If your family or group consists of more than 6 passengers, we’ll make a special point to keep our boats together throughout the entire tour so that you can take photos back and forth, snorkel, and enjoy the sea caves together as a group.  We truly believe Na Pali Experience is the obvious choice when considering a private Na Pali boat tour.

Book Early!

With only 6 passengers per boat and a reputation of selling out all three tours well in advance, we highly recommend reserving your tour as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. If you have a group that is larger than six or are considering a private tour, please call us to discuss your options. Feel free to visit our FAQ page if you want more details about our tours. Any Questions?
