This was a very fun experience. The sights of the NaPali coast was amazing and the sea caves were very neat to go into. I would recommend this excursion.

Zodiac boats are meant for fun, adventurous rides, and we were not disappointed in how The Explorer delivered! We got to ride along with the spinner dolphins, drive by a few sea turtles, and even got an outstanding view of the open ceiling cave from the inside - a true boat-driving skill! The crew was attentive and made it feel... More

Loved that they allowed groups to get photo inside the water cave. The weather cooperated and the boat was smooth. They need to remind guests not to eat all the lunch while others are still snorkeling

This was a fantastic way to see the Na Pali coast. Definitely for people who like a bit of adventure as the actual boat ride is an experience in itself. Our guide Aa Aa was hilarious and made the trip even more enjoyable.

I've done this trip a dozen times, and never enjoyed it as much as with our awesome captain and crew, A'a and Brendan...two pros whose knowledge, kama'aina spirit, and total sense of fun made our experience extraordinary. Do yourself a favor and drive the extra few minutes to the small boat harbor just outside Waimea and save yourself the chop... More

We were really looking forward to our trip to the Na Pali Coast. We booked our thrip through the concierge at the Grand Hyatt. The trip is a half day trip, starting at about 7:30 AM and ending just past 1:00 PM. We chose a smaller raft, versus the Catamaran, because they are allowed into the caves and we also... More

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
