Na Pali Riders-Thrilling

Definitely the highlight of our stay on Kauai. An experienced captain, beautiful scenery, dolphins joining us, and time to snorkel. Just so much fun.

First off, let me say that the Na Pali coast is beautiful, Captain Chris was a very capable captain, Phil was a very nice person, and zodiac tours are fun. Normally, they are much more intimate and personable than big cruises. However, that was not the case here and for this tour to be worth $130/$150, there are some serious... More

Unforgettable! There were high surf warnings on the south shore of Kauai the day we toured so it was a bumpy, exciting, breathtaking ride. Captain Chris was an expert at the wheel and made our 4 hour adventure fun and safe. The front of the boat will feel ALL of the bumps while the back of the boat is calmer.... More

An incredible way to have begun our first day on Kauai. This is not a very "touristy" tour. Cap'n Chris is extremely knowledgeable, eco-conscious and his tour is very relaxed & unregimented. We saw spinner dolphins & had about 30 minutes of snorkeling time. He took us along the full length of the Na Pali coast--which is breathtaking--and the time... More

First of all, I have read the poor reviews. Don't let those sway you! We had the most wonderful weather for our morning tour of the Na Pali coast. If the scenery and caves don't blow you away, the wildlife will. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, various sea birds, goats (yes, goats...on shore, of course), and many tropical fish. Snorkeling...

What a high quality tour from the information and reservation to the skills of the captain, quality of the boat and fun experience offered. This more than exceeded our expectations. We got up close to the Na Pali cliffs and also saw dolphins. The captain did a great job of giving us a smooth ride even in some rough water.

First time seeing the Na Pali Coast and had a blast. Not for the weak, as you do have to hold on. Had a great time, Captain and crew very attentive and watching out for your safety. Would definitely recommend to someone looking for a more fun way to see the coast!

Both guides (father and son) were great. They took us to the best spots for pictures and snorkeling. They were really knowledgeable and fun. The best way to see Napali Coast. I did this after hiking the trail and have to say there is no way you see these sights unless you are in the boat.

We had a great time on the rafting trip. Its a no-frills tour but they take you see all the great spots and give interesting facts along the way. We saw lots of dolphins!

First, I must say that I agree with some reviewers that a catamaran would likely be a better option for those with small children due to the bumpy ride and no life jackets offered at the beginning. That being said, it was exactly as advertised for our all-adult group. We lucked out and happened to book the tour on one... More
