Be prepared to hold on. The raft can be pretty bouncy if you are sitting in the front. But that's what I wanted. The views that you will see will blow your mind. Riding the raft into the caves was amazing. Bring a waterproof camera that you can take some good pictures with. They do have a guide on the... More

Our family of 5, grandma (59), husband (41), me (39) and kids (6 and 4 years old) went on the morning tour and experienced the time of our lives!! It was fun, adventurous and what we saw and learned about what was probably the best experience of our vacation. Captain Chris had a great sense of humor, especially when I... More

This was a blast! We went out on the early ride, as we were told there was a better chance of seeing dolphins and the sea was a bit calmer. Plus, we had two littles with us (5 and two and a half). The team did a great job telling us what to expect and were funny and sweet. You... More

This was a great excursion. The Napali coast is so beautiful. The guide takes you to sea caves. It's incredible and well worth it. You will never forget this trip!

Unfortunately the weather was a bit rough to get to Na Pali coast. After re-reading the reviews I guess it could have been worse. However, my understanding was this is a "Na Pali" coast tour primarily and whale watching is a bonus. After the captain bailed on the trip we spent the next few hours chasing whales without much success.... More

After arriving at the dock the captain hand picked who would sit where in the raft. He looked at me (5' 0" 100lb female) and said "I'll have you sit at the front - if you can handle a few bumps". I thought... a few bumps - no problem. The captain instructed us to hold on to the cord that... More

I hate to give bad reviews but this was so painful that I can't help it. I wasn't expecting it to be on a luxurious boat as I knew it was a raft. There definitely was too many people booked on the excursion. My husband and I had to take turns sitting on a buckle on the raft. It's obviously... More

Our raft expeditions are among the most complimented excursions we offer, and we’re truly sorry you didn’t enjoy your day on the water with us. We do our best to steer our potential passengers onto the boat that best suits them for the conditions of the day, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out. Sounds like you would have been... More

It's hard for anything to win me over if I have to be up at 5 am. This did it. I've toured the Napali coast by boat before but way different by raft and lit in the morning. It was beautiful. One the way back we had an amazing experience. Numerous whales, some jumping within 50 yards right out of... More

My cousin and I attended this tour on February 18th 2014. We had such an amazing time! The weather was beautiful, the views were breathtaking, and we had an unbelievable encounter with a humpback whale. He came right up to the raft for about thirty minutes and was so friendly. The only reason I gave it a four was because... More
