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

I am not one of those people who usually complains and I really hate doing so, but when going as part of such a large group and spending so much money and then to honestly have such a horrible scary time, I feel compelled to say something, so maybe others in the future can be better informed then we were....

This by far was the highlight of our trip! I have NEVER in my life seen anything like the magesty of these cliffs and all the NaPali coast has to see. Captain Chris has the best and fastest boat. I was pleased how smooth the craft was. Both Captain Chris and the deckhand Phil were fabulous! We saw lots of... More

The adults with the children sat in the middle while the other passengers were sitting on... More

We heard so many good things about Na Pali coast and the first thing we wanted to do after landing in Kuaui was the Na Pali coast ride. We woke up early morning and headed to the Na Pali riders visitor office. We were not told beforehand that we would have to ride another mile to the ocean after the... More

We loved this tour. We were lucky in that we got excellent weather in late October. We heard that the best weather is in the summer months. But we had calm seas, clear blue skies and no wind. Out guides clearly LOVE what they do and it was great to be on a boat with only 9 people total. It... More

This was a great way to see the Na Pali coastline. Getting to go in the caves was awesome. Got to see lot;s of dolphins and take some great pictures. The not so good thing was I should have looked in the water before jumping in to snorkle. Lot's of small jellyfish. And lot's of jellyfish stings.
