And the tour by boat if you can - note that you can only do the boat tour in the summer. Waves are too big in the winter time.

The view of the NaPali Coast we experienced, from a small plane was absolutely amazing! We have hiked the coast and seeing it from the air was an experience that everyone should have when they visit Kaua'i!

I knew I was gonna get seasick on the boat, but the view was worth it. I threw up 3 times before reaching the Kalalau valley, muster a view pose with the gorgeous view in the background, ... back to throwing up 3 more times on our way back. The relief of the cliffs is just beautiful. Loved it! Will... More

To really see the Na Pali Coast you need to take a boat trip. The cliffs are so beautiful. There is nothing so beautiful as these cliffs, with lovely waterfalls and towering green cliffs. The views take your breath away. If you have seen Jurassic park these are the cliffs used in the films. You cannot visit Kauai without seeing... More

The "Garden Island" also has one of the most scenic coastlines in the world (a reason why it is often featured in movies). Whether you hike the famous trail and take a scenic boat tour (preferably both), you'll be treated to incredible sights.

We looked at several options and decided to take the Holo Holo boat tour aboard a smaller 12 seat boat with inflatable sides and hard shell bottom. This kind of boat has 2 crew members and a center console where the helm is located. Below the helm is a small bathroom. This was an incredibly beautiful and scenic tour along... More

Amazing history of the ancient Hawaiians that lived along this stunning coastline. Explore by boat, helicopter or on foot. Our souls were touched by the stories from old.

One of the highlights of the island. Worth taking in by helicopter and/one by sea. We did both. Visually stunning!

I saw this area from the ocean while on a tour boat that sailed from Port Allen. One day earlier, I had been able to see the top of the cliffs from Napali State Park while visiting the Waimea Canyon. Incredible!

Beautiful and amazing coast line! Seeing the Na Pali coast was definitely one of the best highlights of our trip. The caves and waterfalls are truly amazing. A must see!
