Tour Description

This Southern Star sailing adventure gets an early departure from Port Allen on the West shore of Kauai. As we head towards Na Pali you’ll see views of Niihau, Polihale and the ridges of Kokee. The am departure generally means we have calmer conditions and virtually ensures an encounter with the massive pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins that cruise up the coast daily.

Generally we take a nearshore route up the entire coast then sail downwind offshore so you get a variety of views. On Na Pali you’ll see spectacular sea cliffs, numerous waterfalls and lava tubes. Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands, and this carved coastline is the result of nearly 8 million years of exposure to wind, waves and rain. In addition to seagoing skills, our crew is knowledgeable in the history and legends of the ancient civilizations that once inhabited these verdant valleys.

After a relaxing and beautiful downwind sail, we’ll pull in to one or our favorite remote snorkel spots. Here, we anchor and passengers can get in the water, or simply relax. After snorkeling the crew prepares a delicious lunch in our onboard kitchen, which we serve with beer and wine (only available after snorkeling). Lastly, we’ll cruise home to Port Allen.


Completed in 2010, Southern Star is a fully custom 65’ luxury sailing catamaran that delivers a new genre of the Hawaiian ocean experience.
