Well worth the cost

The weather and surf meant we couldn't snorkel but out captain compensated for that with some extra cave exploration and going further up the coast than he usually does. The captain and his first mate were awesome. I highly recommend this company and this excursion.

Signed up for a cruise to the Na Pali coast, but Capt. Kevin rerouted us due to 30 ft. seas. So we went whale watching on the south side of Kauai and saw dozens, including a baby. And sea turtles. AND our boat was surrounded by a pod of dolphins, including babies that will melt your heart. Had an amazing... More

Went Whale Watching with the Na Pali Exporer company on their 48' boat. Whale watching is a real gamble and the crew worked very hard to find the whales. They were very persistent and very good at spotting the water spouts. They were able to find us several whales and we had some very good views of them during the... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed doing this tour. Our captain Alona and his daughter brought us into three caves and told us how he would bring his wife and watch the moon at night. Even though we are locals from the island they did not treat us any different than anyone else on the raft. We saw dolphins, great... More

Great trip with Captain A'a and Ducky. Took us into caves (including one open to the sky!), and we saw dolphins, whales, and a large sea turtle..all up close. Highly recommend!

We did the boat tour that takes you along the NaPali coast and includes a stop for snorkeling. The tour was great; we saw numerous dolphins and a couple of whales. Even more impressive, when we stopped to snorkel, I accidentally dropped my sunglasses in the ocean. Our first mate was able to spot them and dive down and get... More

Very good whale watching trip. The captain was very knowledgeable. It was the only tour we could find that was specifically for whale watching.

We loved our coastline and snorkeling trip during which we were fortunate to see both whales and dolphins (bottlenose and spinner.) The crew was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Would do it again and highly recommend.

The team was professional from the booking to the phone and email reminders to the check-in. Captain A'a was wonderful. He made sure we did every event possible even though the water was a little rough. We were still able to go partially inside the cave and land at the beach. We were not able to snorkel but he went...
