Trip of a Lifetime: Day 9 – The Napali Coast

Since Bae was severely afflicted by the sunburn, going on a catamaran is probably not the best idea, so he had to sit this morning out

I met up with my siblings and partners and we set off in the morning to overcast skies and relatively calm seas. 


Rainbow before we set off! Good luck!



If you do one thing in Kauai, make sure you see the Napali coast.  You really feel transported to prehistoric times.


The boat we went on had provide a continental breakfast and drinks (not alcohol) and we had a fun and very knowledgeable captain who made sure we were having fun and learning about the historic geology of Kauai.  The Jurassic park music was a nice touch.


We stopped a few times for a dip and some sea life watching and also got to enjoy seeing a LOT of dolphins swim alongside the boat (seriously at one point there were about 8 dolphins just jumping and swimming next to the boat, – awesome!)


Chilling on the deck!


The captain provided a very descriptive and interesting history about the Napali coast


Every angle you looked, the view of the coast was amazing!


Time for a swim!  The boat provided lifejackets and snorkels – though everyone and their GoPros were out in full force!



The cragged coastline was a beautiful sight to see!  the camera here doesn’t capture the variety of colours we saw – the result of thousands of years of erosion and sedimentary rock layering.


A cool little coastal waterfall


Look familiar? They filmed Jurassic Park in Kauai!


Even when it was cloudy, the way the clouds surround and envelope the Napali cliffs were otherworldly!


The weather started turning just as we got back!


My sister and I enjoying the ride back!


Tune in tomorrow!
