Went out on Joe's boat September 2013 and got dumped in the ocean in front of Hanakapiai Beach by a 12 foot wave. This is the beach where over 80 people have died from rip currents and rogue waves over the years. Joe and Matt did nothing to assist us in getting to shore. We were left to struggle in... More

Amazing day on the water with Joe and Matt! The views were amazing and going in the caves were exhilarating to say the least. We saw a few big boats that could not even get near the places we were able to go. Joe and Matt were great guides and Matt found us turtles and a large trumpet fish when... More

My family and I are yearly visitors to Kauai. We have gone out twice with Joe and Matt! We loved it so much back in 2011 we had to go again in 2014 with new family members to share the experience. Joe and Matt are very knowledgeable about the island and give you an experience that's exhilarating and breath taking.... More

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

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
