My wife and I hopped over to Kauai for the night to celebrate our anniversary and do something without the kids since they are still too small to take this tour! This was such an amazing experience! The office staff and boat crew were all so friendly and knowledgeable. The tour was excellent- so many sites to see! I would... More

The tour was AMAZING. All of us thought the highlight of our trip would be our helicopter tour, but it was actually seeing the dolphins on the boat tour. I know its not guaranteed, but seeing the dolphins so close was one of the most amazing experiences of my life, and what I tell people was the highlight of my... More

We came to Kauai for two weeks for our honeymoon and the boat tour we took with North Shore Charters was the best activity on our trip. We took a morning tour and the weather was beautiful. The ocean was smooth and we saw dolphins, turtles and lots of fish when we stopped to snorkel. The crew was amazing and... More

This was the highlight of my two weeks on Kauai. Really fun wet and bumpy ride (I sat right in the front). Since we were on a Navy Seal type raft, we could go into the caves along the shore. Scenery is incredible.

We just returned from our four hour journey with North Shore Charters and I definitely didn't want it to end. This area is truly one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The Na Pali coast is gorgeous and with the 27 ft. Inflatable craft that is used makes this experience one you won't ever forget. Only 14 people... More

My husband and I were hesitant to book a boat trip due to the recent hurricane activity, so we waited until the last minute. Most websites I read said to book at least a week in advance since these types of activities book up fast. I called 3 days prior spoke to Janelle and she was wonderful and got us... More

Our experience with North Shore Charters was satisfying in so many ways. It is a small, family-run business that runs from Kileaua (great location for us, since we were staying in Anahola). Despite our calling the day of, Janelle was easily, quickly, and pleasantly able to get us on an afternoon outing. Both in person and on the phone, she... More

This was definitely one of the top things we did during our trip to Hawaii. We went to Big Island, Kauai and Maui. We did this adventure on July 15th, 2014. To begin with, Janelle was great with the entire booking process. She's very sweet! The price is also worth it because you get to see the stunning cliffs of... More

This had to be one of my favorite experiences while in Kauai. Janelle made the booking process so easy and she was so nice and pleasant over the phone. She really took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. Captain Gary and and guide Drew went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable and having... More

It's a small, family run business that only operates a few months per year due to weather conditions. Taking off from the north shore of Kauai, it operates a hard shell zodiac to one of the most beautiful, undeveloped places in the world, the Na Pali coast. Captain Gary and Crewman Drew were professional, knowledgeable and fun to be with.... More
