The ultimate adventure raft tour explores all the “nooks and crannies” of Nā Pali…in all of its majesty! Under the waterfalls and into sea caves when conditions permit, encounter playful dolphins, turtles, famous movie locations, and more. We explore the coast and experience a very special cultural site; it is much more than your typical snorkel tour.
