Experience the grand beauty of Kauai's Na Pali coast and an unparalleled vantage point to view the Hawaii's largest creature, the Humpback Whale. All rafts are equipped with hydrophones which allow for listening to the whale "songs", which can be heard from more than 20 miles away.
Ideal for those seeking a bit more adventure, the raft expedition brings you closest to the action. These rapid-moving, 24-foot-rigid-hull inflatables sit low on the water, and when whales are encountered, there is a feeling of being right there with them at sea level. Hawaii's "100 yard minimum" law ensures that boats do not get too close to these endangered species but it is not uncommon for whales to approach crafts of their own accord, sometimes even swimming under the boat.
Captain Andy's has years of whale watching experience having been exploring the Na Pali on rafting tours since 1974. Their experienced captains know how to carefully share the waters with these amazing sea mammals and can provide educational information about the whales on all of the tours.
