Captain Chris, John and Brad were an excellent team to excursion with. They paid attention to safety, showed us all the best that the Napoli coast has to offer. They were fun, attentive and courteous to all guests. The boat was comfortable even at maximum occupancy (we had 30 w crew). They offered fruit, water and chips which were the... More

We went on this tour as a family. We saw dolphins and sea caves. There was also snorkeling. It was a fantastic way to see the coast.

Captain Chris took us on an amazing adventure exploring the Na Pali coast! The crew was friendly, knowledgeable, and we always felt safe as we explored the coast, waterfalls, and caves. Thank you and we look forward to the next adventure.

Your in a zodiac raft and if it's a windy day, you're going to bounce and bounce your way towards the Na Pali which means as you hold on to the rope if sitting on the sides of the raft, your knuckles are going to rub and you'll get blisters like we did. Just bring a pair of gloves, like... More

This tour is not what I expected. I was hoping for a nice calm ride along the coast where I could take pictures and relax. This was the complete opposite and I held on for dear life as this tour hits every wave and gets airborne. It's terrifying but one of the funnest things we did. Once got over my... More

Having recently completed yet another NaPali Coast tour (with a different company-- have now done 8 total, several different companies) I can truly say NaPali Riders is my favorite!! They are the only ones that really do cover the majority of the NaPali coastline (most recent one left from Port Allen/west side and turned around at Kalalau Valley!). NaPali Riders... More

We had a beautiful excursion of the Na Pali coast and I can highly recommend this company if you are looking for adventurous way to see the Na Pali Coast. The ride on the zodiac is an E-ticket ride and the view is magnificent. Phil was our photographer and deck hand and he was personal and very knowledgeable.

We booked our tour for Wednesday, but it bot pushed back to Thursday due to weather and swells. Our tour was with intentioned to view the Na Pali Coast and caves within, however the swells were still rough when we showed up on Thursday and the tour turned into a whale watching trip. The crew made lemonade out of lemons... More

What an adventure! For March it was calm (er) seas than normal. As such all of the bouncing excitement we hoped for was pretty tame. HOWEVER - it was so gorgeous and we caught the "tail" of whale season. :) Because the seas were calmer, especially on Na Pali coast, we were able to motor into the caves and ride... More

Here is my concern, this raft tour was cancelled due to high swell, then rescheduled for the following morning. We should have never gone out. To say that it was a rough ride is an understatement. You stick your feet under a rope, and your hands under a rope on the side. Both my right hand, and my left foot... More
