I chose this tour after researching all the dozens and dozens of options available. I'm so happy I made this choice. My husband and I were with 3 other guests, the captain and 2 assistants. Since the group was so small, we were able to have a much more personal experience. We were able to see everything without being squished... More

This was our 4th time using Na Pali Explorer and found this experience to not be as nice. The sea were slightly rough so that is not Na Pali's fault at all.

This was my first trip to Hawaii & we did this Zodiac tour on my birthday, which was the most amazing way to spend my birthday. Seeing the Napali coast from this vantage point was awesome. Capt A'a & his daughter passion for their home & ancestors were very moving.

Such a fun experience as Kama'aina here on Kaua'i! From snorkeling with fish and turtles to getting super close to the coves and mountains of Na Pali. Our Captain Kevin was awesome! We really enjoyed our anniversary on the boat...definitely would recommend to our family and friends! Mahalo

The weather was iffy, but turned out to be ok.....the captain was very skilled and showed us some amazing sites and got us amazing views of... More
