Tour description provided by Viator

Hop aboard an exhilarating adventure raft for the ride of your life! Departing from Kikiaola Harbor, you'll experience breathtaking oceanside views of Waimea and the longest white sand beach in Hawaii. Once you reach Kalalau, you'll explore the archaeological remains of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village. Here, you'll also have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters.

Cruise past one of the oldest sugar towns in Hawaii and out to Polihale State Park towards the Na Pali coast's majestic sea cliffs and hanging valleys. Listen to a historical and cultural narration provided by your captain as he navigates you safely into sea caves and beneath cascading waterfalls.

Once you reach Kalalau, you'll head back to Nu'aolo Kai for hiking and exploring the archaeological remains of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village. Feel free to swim and snorkel on the protected reef where crystal-clear waters teem with fish, coral formations and other marine life.
