Kauai Recap #3- Na Pali Coast

 

When we decided to take a vacation to Kauai, I knew seeing the Na Pali Coast was a must. Other than hiking the coast, the only way to legally access shore areas in the Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park is by boat, and that is just what we did!

Boat tours depart from Port Allen on the West Side and during the summer months, guided kayaking trips can give you access to awe-inspiring views of the sea cliffs, while air tours can show you scenic Na Pali areas that aren’t accessible by land or water.

Much of Na Pali is inaccessible due to its characteristic sheer cliffs that drop straight down, thousands of feet into the ocean. This, and its remote location, allow Na Pali to remain one of the most beautiful and pristine coastlines in the world.

Located on the North Shore of Kauai, the Na Pali Coast features panoramic views of the vast Pacific Ocean, vibrant green cliffs and cascading waterfalls plummeting into deep, narrow valleys.

The rugged terrain appears much as it did centuries ago when Hawaiian settlements flourished in these valleys existing only on the food they could grow and the fish they could catch.

The tour lasted about five hours and included a light lunch and snorkeling. It was one of our favorite things we did while in Kauai and I highly recommend it!
