Captain Steve and Marett were AMAZING!! What a wonderful trip for our family. Marett knew so much and shared stories as we traveled the coast. Captain Steve navigated the boat like a boss! Highly recommend!

TripAdvisor had better check its algorithm because how is this not ranked the #1 thing to do in Kauai? We took a boat ride with Captain J's Adventures on a boat helmed by Andy and his apprentice Ryder.

The sights were out of this world, everything all the other reviews stated. I am glad we got Andy. He got us over some rough waves that were the standard for them but surprising for the first-time visitor. We got used to it pretty quickly.

The snorkeling was just amazing. All of the info he gave us was educational, including some trends on Kauai that have locals upset. (See billionaires buying thousands of acres, eroding local culture.)

This boat ride adventure was one I'll remember forever.

If you ever have an opportunity to visit Kauai, Hawaii I would highly recommend a trip to the NaPali Coast.  It appears that there are a variety of tours to view the NaPail Coast.  Some people take a rafting excursion, others take a helicopter/small plane tours, and then there are those who attempt to hike the eleven miles on the quite challenging Kalalau Trail. I believe the Sierra Club has rated the NaPali Coast Kalalau Trail a 9 out of 10 for hiking difficulty.  I chose the aircraft (60mins.) option and I must admit it was an amazing trip because it was the easiest option.
I was thrilled to see one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. The NaPail Coast definitely equals unimaginable beauty.  I suggest you add this adventure to your bucket list.  It is well worth your time. However, please do your research before booking any tour because tour choice can make of break your experience. Enjoy your visit to the NaPali Coast!!

We had a wonderful adventure with Captain Steve and Marett, we could not be happier! They were very attentive and fun. Great stories by both of them! We went inside the caves which was amazing, we felt like Pirates! The Snorkeling was fun, beautiful, and unrushed. The equipment was first rate too. The boat, owned by Captain Steve was fast and specially made for the Na Pali waters and rode the waves very well.

Be sure to get Captain Steve and Merett, we highly recommend them!

Beautiful, beautiful trip. We took a boat cruise in December, and while we didn't see any whales, the views of the coast were not to be missed.

Had an absolute blast on this tour. We saw spinner and bottle nosed dolphins within 20 mins of taking off. Later in the trip we saw multiple whale breeches. The views were breath taking and Drew was an incredible guide! So happy to have shared his company while exploring the na pali coast. 10/10!

This is a "not to be missed" on your checklist to Kauai. We took Makana Boat Charters and highly recommend this company with Captain Aa. Breathtaking, scenic, fun and safe!

The rugged terrain appears much as it did centuries ago when Hawaiian settlements flourished in these deep, narrow valleys, existing only on the food they could grow and the fish they could catch.

The safest access and best way to explore the Napali Coast is by sea or by air. During summer months, guided kayaking trips bring you up close to soaring cathedral cliff. When conditions are right, raft tours are available to guide you to hidden sea caves and remote beaches.

Another beautiful place to see in Kaua'i. The sheer magnificent contours of the land are just amazing. The waterfalls are an added feature to an already wonderful scenery.

While we were not able to view the coastline from the water, we did experience it via various hikes and a drive to the "end of the road" past Princeville. Unbelievable views. Highly recommended. Would love to take a "water tour" of the coastline on the next visit.
