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

My wife, brother in law and I spent 6 absolutely delightful hours with Capt Mike and Matt touring the Na Pali coast. They were conscientious, very knowledgeable about local history and environment. Mike has great finesse in boat handling and in telling a story (I'm a career Navy retiree). Matt complements him well, making for a great team. If you... More

Had the boat to ourselves...just the 5 of us including my 4 year old. Joe is the only boat that leaves from the North Shore and takes kids. OUr daughter loved it, snorkeled, went into the caves, loved the little dog that rode along. Joe is an interesting guy and is one of the most experienced captains on the island.

If you like big boats, big crowds, don't go here. Besides Matt, Joe and Woody there were six of us, casual, fun and informative. Matt so loves where he lives its infectious. Joe's got the boat under control and keeps a watch on the passengers. Woody was there, somewhere. The beauty of the Na Pali Coast is something to be... More

I have been on many tours of the Napali, on several different types of boats, this was my 4th zodiac tour and absolutely the best! We left earlier than most tours from Hanalei Bay, the water that morning was like glass, and we were the only boat on the water! We were able to see the coast in all of... More

My family of four went on the Bali Hai boat tour out of Hanalei Bay. The boat only holds six total passengers and our Captain 'Joe'. This made getting to know the Napoli Coast up close and personnal. Joe has a great little 'dock' dog that apparently jumps on some of his tours. What a great dog to have on... More

Joe of Bali Hai Tours gave us an amazing tour of the Napali Coast. His boat is a Zodiac which holds only about 8 people per tour so it is intimate and personalized. Very competively priced as well. Joe has a ton on boating experience and has worked with many folks, from National Geographic, to Hollywood directors, to the local... More

Joe and Matt provided an amazing trip. We were blessed enough to go out when there were no other boats out. It was like the Napali coast was our personal coastline. We were able to get into several sea caves, seeing amazing views all around us. We saw turtles and several whales even though it was really late in the... More
