Visit Kauai's gorgeous Na Pali coast, then cruise to the Forbidden Isle to snorkel the coast at the Lehua atoll in this adventure-filled all-day ocean trip!
The Na Pali Coast is a must-see attraction on Kauai. Sightsee and learn of the intriguing history of the area before going further north. Head across the channel to the Forbidden Isle of Niihau, where you will snorkel along the coast. Coming so close to this private island is a very exclusive and sacred experience. You may get to see one of the curious Hawaiian Monk Seals that inhabit these waters. Just north of Niihau is the lesser-known Lehua Crater, an islet like Molokini that serves as a seabird and marine life sanctuary, to snorkel among the remote and undisturbed sea life of Niihau.
