Wonderful trip to view Na Pali. Cutting through sea caves with all their color was incredible. Catching migrating spinner dolphins a bonus! Teens and 50+ parents alike loved it. Kudos to Captain Chris and first mate Brad.

We took this tour on our Kauai honeymoon in July. It was extremely rough on the water and several people looked about to be sick, but we did all make it through. We saw amazing scenery, turtles, caves, and even a pod of dolphins on the way back. The captain, Chris, was incredibly knowledgeable. I'm not sure I'd do this... More

We went on this excursion last year and it has to be one of the best we have been on in all of our travels. I was just looking at some of the shots we got while we were out on the water and it is simply amazing! We saw too many dolphins to even count and the sea caves... More

I had a great experience! They made you feel safe, and were knowledgable about the area and gave us some cultural insight. We spent time looking for dolphins, and we saw them up close! They drove us through sea caves, and stopped for snorkeling. I was lucky to be able to sit near the back where it was less bumpy.... More

We loved seeing the Dolphins and sea turtles. The sea caves were amazing! We'd suggest going out early, the water gets very rough.

This is a must for anyone going to KAUAI. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever gone to. The captain takes you everywhere and we were able to go inside every single cave, cove etc. Just stunning views. Be aware that the ride back is going to be very harsh, bumpy and you must hold on...

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

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

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
