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

What an amazing tour. My wife and I were on our honeymoon in Kauai and did many excursions but this was our favorite. It even beat out the helicopter ride which was the coolest thing I had ever done until this boat ride. The Na Pali coast is simply breathtaking. Our captain Sean and guide Drew were a lot of... More

We took the morning trip which departed around 7.30am from Anini Beach. The Napali Coast scenery was amazing, especially the sea caves, waterfalls and pristine beaches. Our guides had a deep knowledge of both the coastline and Kauai history. We did not snorkel at the first choice site due to the large swell, but the second choice of the outer... More

Wow, this tour exceeded my expectations. Myself and 10 year old daughter had a blast. The guides were friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The snorkeling is not fantastic, but we did swim with four turtles. The coast is beyond words and the caves were amazing. I would definitely use this company again as everyone from the front office to guides were... More
