Get to the Fun Faster! The memories will last a lifetime... Our four boats, Leila, Holo Holo, and Adventurer II & III, get you to the action quicker than anybody else, so you have more time to snorkel, sightsee, relax and enjoy the pristine waters and spectacular cliffs of the Napali Coast & Niihau. We are the only Kauai boat tours company that offers daily trips to the "forbidden island" of Niihau.

My son and I went on an excursion that took us to the Napali Coast and then to Niihau for snorkeling. It was a lot of fun. Saw lots of fish while snorkeling and we also saw spinner and bottlenose dolphins on the way over to Niihau and on the way back. Not an inexpensive tour but worth it. If... More

Oh, this was an amazing trip! We booked the sunset cruise and went out on a 50 foot catamaran up the west side of Kauai and part of the Napali coast. We met at Port Allen around 2:30, checked in at their office and then met up with one of our guides outside their office. He gave us a little... More

I will never regret going on this cruise even though I did get sick and vomit twice. I am sensitive to motion and put no blame on the crew. I guess that proves how good it was! Ahren and girl from Israel (sorry I can't remember her name) were excellent hosts indeed! They were very fast to care for me... More

Nice service with a big BUT. The guys only show a half at best of the Napali coast and not the half with the best views. Too bad we weren't aware of it. Disappointed.

We took the snorkel tour on Leila, and it was one of the highlights of our week in Kauai. Capt. Kelly and the crew, Cole and Max, were fantastic - easy-going, funny, and kind. We won't ever forget the marine life we saw or the gorgeous views of the Na Pali coast. After an exciting trip up the coast feasting... More

Oh my gosh - Ian, Jay and Emily were fabulous, wonderful, amazing and awesome. It was a great experience. The boat ride going out was a 45 minute roller coaster ride which the kids and I loved. At the turn around point Ian slowed the boat and the crew used my camera to take pictures ( no upselling-loved that)!! When... More

If you want an exciting cruise up the Napali coast, hop on the 900 hp 65' cat out of Port Allen. Under the leadership of Captain Wendell - safety first then the fun began. Crew Ahren and Shaked tended to us passengers like we were very special indeed. The crackers/cheese/cold cut appetizers and free flowing (though responsibly poured) drinks set... More

I called twice to make sure the water conditions would not be too rough. I was told everything was fine and all trips had gone as planned previous two days. It was a 7 hour tour with my 74 year old mother in some very questionable conditions. We have a great deal of experience with rough ocean conditions crossing the... More

Wonderful catamaran. The crew and captain were exceptional. The snorkeling by "the forbidden island" was incredible as well as the views!! We stopped to see sea lions, dolphins and sea turtles!

The boat was run by 3 person crew: Ian, the captain, Jake and Jay. All three people are incredibly professional. In fact, Ian has an air of coolness that you would normally see from government or non-profit organizations. The boat ran at 30mph against 3-4 ft surfs on a sunny day. At that speed, the boat can hit the water... More

Thank you for posting your kind and detailed review about your time out with us! Captain Ian, Jake and Jay really do an amazing job and truly enjoy what they do. You joined us at a time of year when, due to the time of sunset, people get an extra 30-45 minutes out on the water at no additional cost... More
