Unfortunately we did not get to do the tour because of adverse sea conditions. I was very impressed that the company decided to cancel all tours for the whole week because of concerns about guest safety. Clearly they take safety seriously even at a financial penalty to their business. I will definitely plan to do this tour on my next... More

We had a group of us friends that took this charter up the Na Pali coast. That was one of the top things I've ever done. The crew was great and pointed out some fascinating points of interest on the coastline. We had beautiful weather and the ride was thrilling. Highly recommend this.

Each was very knowledgeable and a super great host. We were concerned that we would be disappointed because so many things turn out... More

Really enjoyed this tour. Na Pali coast is beautiful. Going into the caves and the experience on the inflatable boat was really fun.

We just got back from our trip to Kauai and North Shore Charters boat tour was one of the highlights of our trip. We were staying in Princeville and was looking for Na Pali boat tours closer to where we were going to be. Most of the tours I found started from the South. Luckily I came across North Shore... More

Our party of 10 just finished our tour with Capt Mike and Drew. We had ages 7 to 65 in our group and everyone has said this was their favorite activity between our time on Oahu and Kauai. Keep in mind we also zip lined, rode horses, rode a catamaran fireworks cruise, and have visited several beaches. The tour started... More

This boat tour was one of the highlights of our Kauai vacation. We had a group of 8 people and we all had a fantastic time. The boat ride itself was incredibly fun and the Napali Coast is gorgeous. Being on a zodiac boat allows for entry into sea caves which was awesome!
