“8th Natural Wonder of the World!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Spectacular natural beauty which can be seen a number of ways: hike the Kalalau trail, paddle on sea kayaks, helicopter, large catamaran, and small catamaran. The small catamaran is by far the best way to really experience the Na Pali Coast for several reasons. The seating capacity is limited to six passengers. The small cats are smooth riding and can enter many sea caves. They also have exclusive access to the best reefs for snorkeling.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

The na Pali coast is a very beautiful piece of earth. The best way to see the coast is by boat. I took Captain Andy's cruise and they took very good care of us all. I loved when they hoisted the sail for a bit and there was such peace while we ate our dinner. I would recommend this to anyone!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

After a very long drive up a one lane narrow road we arrived at the "end of the line" as far North as you can drive on Kauai. The Beach was sandy and hardly any rocks (lava) as the other beaches. You could walk out into the water on sand up to your waist. It was calm and we ran across a local guy who was eating a fresh coconut (in which I had tried to buy since we were there a week) and could'nt find. He offered me some of his and it brought back childhood memories of when I lived on Oahu in 1965. Wish we would have found this Beach Treasure in the beginning of the week. Must see and visit.

“A Scene from Jurasic Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We viewed the Na Pali coast from Capt Andy's sunset dinner cruise. Breathtaking! You can only see it from the sea or the air (helicopter). And Capt Andy's offers power boat rides that take you into the caves that dot the Na Pali coast. Awesome !
