Established in 1972, Na Pali Catamaran has a perfect safety score as well as a new 35' Power Catamaran. Offering shade and protection, the Kamahele Kai II is powerful, spacious and comfortable. Because Kamahele Kai II has no sail, we take you into many secret and sacred sea caves while introducing you to dolphins, sea turtles and seasonal Humpback whales along the way. Kamahele Kai II is built to carry 24, but we limit our passenger count to 18, allowing us to snorkel Kauai's world renown Nualolo State Park!! Na Pali Catamaran offers both 2 hour and 4 hour excursions daily. Please call or book online now. YOUR experience of a lifetime awaits you!
