Take a dive at one of the drift sites at Mana Crack, have a warm brunch and fruit during your surface interval as you travel the NaPali Coast where the team will narrate for you the story of this amazing area! You’ll work your way back for that second dive before returning to the marina. This is a drift dive – there are no anchors, moorings or drift lines in the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
This Private Charter includes: any gear, two tanks of 32% nitrox per diver, weights, brunch, snacks and cold beverages, and the best geological/Hawaiian narrated culture talk about the NaPali Coast for up to 8 guests.
What to Bring
Please bring beach attire, and remember to wear sunscreen and a rash guard and bring a hat and/or sunglasses! You can store your small items in the cuddy to keep them dry and safe.
You get all of the advantages of diving nitrox here without any of the potential disadvantages. A total win-win situation! The diving profiles are straight in this area. Diving the cracks is so interesting that, generally, you want to hang out there and enjoy them for as long as possible. However, it is a straight 80 feet, which means you often can get caught on allowed bottom time. Not so with nitrox! You get more bottom time for your buck! And you can’t exceed your max operating depth as the bottom max is 80 feet with less decompression risk and that hangover effect in minimal.
Not certified in nitrox? No problem! We include a nitrox introduction for those that need it or we can do an affordable certification.
You Must See NaPali
Everyone should see the NaPali Coast every time they visit Kauai. However, sometimes it’s really just about the diving, and Mana Crack is frankly good enough to stand alone. New to any of the dive companies is our 2 tank local dive with the NaPali Coast Tour for the groups that want to see the Coast but don’t have the dive experience to do our most extreme dive, lets do a local 2 tank charter then take you up The NaPali Coast with the same great narration!
