Preparing for Your Tour on the Na Pali

If you’re going on a tour, it’s essential to be prepared, especially when it comes to the sun. We recommend bringing items that can protect you from the sun and are okay to get wet. To ensure you’re fully prepared, it’s advisable to depart early enough to reach the harbor on time. It’s crucial not to miss the boat! Kaua’i has only one small highway that encircles the island, and traffic congestion is common due to roadwork, commuting, or accidents. To avoid any confusion, we highly recommend using the driving directions provided on our website and confirmation email. There are multiple harbors beginning with the letter “K” and it’s easy to end up at the wrong one. We want to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience for you, so please take this precaution seriously.

Here are some things you should consider bringing:

• Dry bags to keep your belongings safe
• Swimwear
• A long-sleeved shirt
• A refillable water bottle
• Snorkeling equipment
• Snacks and drinks

What to bring:
• A towel
• A change of clothes for after the tour
• Reef Safe Sunscreen
• Sunglasses and a hat
