Choosing Between A Raft Or Boat Tour Of Kauai

When it comes to exploring the beauty of Kauai, there are a few different options for getting out on the water. You can choose between raft tours and boat tours, both of which offer their own unique advantages and disadvantages. Here, we will break down the key differences between raft tours and boat tours so you can make an informed decision about which one is right for you.

Advantages of Kauai Raft Tours

Raft tours are a great option if you want to get up close and personal with the Kauai coastline. These tours take you right into the heart of the action, where you can see all the different rock formations and wildlife up close. Raft tours also tend to be more intimate adventures, as there are usually only a handful of people on each raft. However, since rafts are smaller than boats, you will experience more wave action. If you are susceptible to sea sickness, you may want to look at our boat tours which offer a smoother ride and more amenities.

Advantages of Kauai Boat Tours

Boat tours, on the other hand, offer a more relaxing way to see Kauai. You’ll have plenty of time to soak up the sun and take in the scenery from your comfortable seat on the boat. Our boat tours also offer dinner and cocktail tour options and can accommodate large groups. When the sun gets to be too much for you, our boats also come with covered spaces for shade.

But, with our boat tours, we can’t get as close to rock formations and wildlife as you can on a raft tour – not to mention landing on the beach. These activities are only available with our raft tours.
