We had a great trip along the Napali Coast with Capt. Joe and First Mate Matthew. There were big ocean swells on the day we went out but their boat handled everything just fine. My wife, grandson and I were the only tourists on this trip so we enjoyed the crew's undivided attention and conversation. They took us to a... More

By far the best tour we've ever taken off of Kauai. The Captain and his mate, Wyatt, made the trip super fun and were a wealth of knowledge. The intimacy of having only 6 people on board is great! One cannot explain the exhilaration of whipping in and out of lava caves, you MUST experience it. My husband wanted to... More

Went out on 9/25/13 with Joe and Matt. The rest is something myself. wife and son will never forget as long as we live. The trip itself was going fine and we were on our way back to home base when Joe decided he would show off for the people coming off the Kalalau trail in front of Hanakapiai Beach... More

Our family of 6 had a wonderful experience speeding into and out of caves, going under waterfalls and learning history along the way. Our guide, Matt was knowledgeable about the history of his island, could swim like a fish and has a background that you wouldn't believe! Our driver, Michael, was a fill in for the day but boy could... More

We did this tour a few days after the hurricane/tropical storm came through. Joe very nicely squeezed us in the day we were returning home. We had a ton of fun. Joe and Matt were great. We loved hearing the information about the area. The kids loved Woody, the little dog that tags along on the tours. We saw flying... More

Great Boat ride! Captain Joe and Matt really made a nice tour, plenty of interesting commentary also. We have been coming to the island for many years and have been on quite a few different tours..catamarans and zodiac. This was the best one I have been on! We were able to spend time in the caves and get closer than... More

Family of 4 (kids ages 12 & 9) took this tour of the Napali Coast. It was amazing. Although the Zodiac boat could hold 12, they only take 6 passengers, so you aren't crowded. Unlike the larger boats, Bali Hai's small boat enables them to go in and tour the caves/lava tubes. The snorkeling was great too (thanks to Matt,... More

My husband and our two teenage kids spent a week on Kauai, and the highlight of our trip was Bali Hai Boat Tour of Na Pali Coast. Captain Joe, amazing diver and surfer Matt and an exceptionally brave and very happy dog Wodie make it a perfect combination of seamanship, hawaiian history and story telling and fun. The great part... More

The caves and sights were absolutely incredible! The guides were obviously passionate about the trip and were very knowledgeable about the area. Overall, a great experience.

It doesn't get any better than this: tour up close to the Na Pali coast in a small inflatable boat that gets you into places other boats can't! Joe is amazing and got us into several lava tunnels. His dog is even more amazing and sure footed as it walks anywhere on the boat including the rubber inflatable parts. And... More
