This was well worth the money. I loved the boat because it had a canopy for shade. Most that I researched were regular zodiacs which has no shade and makes for a rough ride, especially in the afternoon (hint-take the morning tour). Captain Kevin and first mate Drake were awesome people and had much aloha to spread. Kevin is very... More

We have been on a number of zodiac type boat rides in Hawaii, but this was the first and last one on Kauai. This overpriced row boat ride was truly painful as they didn't provide any protection for peoples hands while you held on for dear life on the safety ropes. By the time you made it to the furthest...

This was an outstanding activity, especially when we went in the sea caves along the Na Pali Coast! The snorkeling was awesome too. I would recommend this boat trip to everyone. Just remember to take Bonine in case of motion sickness. The waves can be a little rough but it adds to the fun! Thanks for a great time!

This was a great morning out. The Na Pali Coast is simply stunning. The boat trip was a very comfortable way to see it. We saw dolphins and turtles on the way out which was great. Our crew was Kevin and Drake and they were great. This is a good size boat to go on as it was big enough... More

Great boat (clean, roomy, and well designed), great sites (including an awesome sea cave), and a great crew. Lunch was legit as well with a HUGE turkey sandwich, chips, and soda or water. Well worth the money.

I think that if we got to do what we were hoping to do, the tour would have been a wonderful. The plan was to see Na Pali coast, swim in caves and snorkel. Unfortunately, the ocean was very choppy with 10-15 ft waves. Instead of sailing (3 hr of roller coaster ride with no snorkeling and even getting close... More

Na Pali explorers delivers exactly what it promises. Inflatable boat with a very friendly, fun crew who are determined to make sure everyone has a good time. Crew are very knowledgable about the local area and chat to everyone throughout the trip. Caves are impressive as are the amazing cliffs and beautiful clear water. Tour was about 4 1/2 hours...
