Northshore Snorkel Raft Adventure 4Hr
Vendor: Holoholo Charters
The adventure begins when you leave shore of scenic Hanalei Bay and we shuttle you by dingy to the Ocean Adventurer which is anchored just offshore. There, you'll do a "dry-transfer", stow your gear, grab a seat and get ready for the experience of a lifetime. Minutes after leaving the bay, the spectacular Napali Coast comes into view and you see why its dramatic cliffs and beaches have enchanted painters, authors and travelers for centuries... and we're just getting started! As we travel down the coast, your crew and Captain entertain your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once made this coast their home. From sea-level you really get a feel for the tremendous scale of Napali. Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles and seabirds which are often seen on our tours. Depending on the ocean conditions the day of your raft tour, well stop and snorkel at one of several protected and shallow areas which will be teeming with tropical fish. Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses if you need them), snorkels, and flotation aids are all provided. If youre new to snorkeling, our crew will be on-hand to provide instruction and pointers so you can get the most from your adventure. After you have a chance to snorkel and relax on the Napali Coast, well serve a tasty sandwich lunch before we head back up the coast to Hanalei Bay. Built in 2004 the Ocean Adventurer is a super-fast, modern, rigid-hull inflatable. Not to be confused with a Zodiac-type rubber raft, shes 38 long and 9 wide with a channeled fiberglass hull that cuts through the waves. Twin 225hp outboard motors allow for a top speed up to 30 knots. A perfect platform for snorkeling, Ocean Adventurer has two water-level entry points with dive ladders and a fresh water shower. With plenty of shade, stadium-style seating for every passenger and the all-important enclosed marine toilet this boat is designed for comfort as well as speed and safety.
