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

This was worth getting up at 4 AM to make it all the way over to the departure area with two young children eight and nine and two other children were also on the boat which is actually large zodiac holding approximately 25 people. The adults with the children sat in the middle while the other passengers were sitting on... More

My sister and I went on the early morning trip with Napali Riders in Feb. Definitely worth it if you're looking for wildlife-- it was amazing wild dolphin and whale show. The Napali coastal landscape was incredibly awe inspiring. Riding a zodiac of not a relaxing cruise type of thing, if you're looking for that you're better off on a... 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.

This is an adventure. Enjoy it! Our morning ride began on a beautiful, calm sea day. The Na Pali coastline is majestic. The captain was very informative about the views, history & culture. He also knew how to handle that zodiac to give us the ride of our lives! Awesome! (Sit towards the front for the big bounces!) We saw... More

Don't pay too much attention to those who say that the ride is too rough. That is part of the draw. Unless you are infirm or have serious back issues you should not have a problem. If you are not the adventurous type, there is always the catamaran cruise (which is also great...but in a different way). The guides were... More

We had an absolutely beautiful day to go out. We went with the early morning and it was great. We had a smooth ride out, seen lots of dolphins, awesome scenery, snorkeled with sea turtles and fun ride back. Besides the incredible views the captain provided great details and his assistant did professional photography. He took some amazing pics. Nothing... More
