Captain Christian, crew Ben,Jen, and Ryan were fantastic. The trip started at 7AM and followed the Napali coast. Because they have the big Pacific Ocean type boats we went over to Niihau. The snorkeling was great and the flotations were available if anyone wanted them. The food was great -cinnamon rolls and fruit for breakfast. And very fresh veggies,meats,salads for... More

Captain Chad, and his mates Danny and Quinn were awesome. All 3 made sure we were not thirsty, hungry or bored. Captain Chad loves Hawaii and you can tell when he tells his tales of the island. He had us laughing the entire time. The OTHER big name tour group was out with a tour too but we noticed they... More

Great sunset cruise - cruised with Capt Ron, Matt and Jen...the views are stunning and the crew was awesome. Be aware or just ask, but it's pretty choppy seas. A few people got sea sick but the crew did a great job of keeping an eye on them, checking up on everyone and good mix of fun & safe. Food... More

From the first splash of the sea, 'round the bend, watching dolphins race ahead of us, magnificent mountains looking like Jurassic Park, waterfalls, rainbows, lush green tropical forests, sail boats, helicopters, immense 100' arch out over water, Hawaiian supper, fantastic crew, stories of isle's history, picture taking to awesome sunset, this was a trip I will take again.

Captain Chad and his crew Gwen and Dana did a stunning job making us comfortable, feeding us and entertaining us with information and nuggets of history while sailing us around some of the most stunning coast on the planet. Wonderful snorkeling, cannonballing opportunities and a sail under a waterfall. Spectacular sunset with Champagne to finish off. Just beautiful. Joe, Dublin

My wife and I stayed in Kauai for ten days celebrating our anniversary. We stayed pretty busy seeing sights and doing tours, but this was our favorite by far. Chad and his crew were awesome. Food and drinks were really good. We saw a ton of dolphins and quite a few sea turtles, we went under a waterfall, but the... More

I booked the Deluxe Na Pali Snorkel Tour based on all the reviews that I had seen on TripAdvisor. I was hesitant at first because A) we were staying at North Shore, which would mean a 1 hr 15 minute drive in the wee hours of the morning to Port Allen Boat Harbor and B) we were in the middle...

Captain Chad and his crew provide an incredible experience on their snorkeling tour around the Na Pali coast and over to the channel between Niihau and Lehua islands. They provide the perfect balance between fun and safety. At every point the team is on the lookout for dolphins, turtles, monk seals, and any other species passengers may not otherwise experience...

Exceptional experience on the snorkel tour up the Na Pali Coast. The crew was outstanding. They spent time with each passenger attending to our every need and sharing their detailed knowledge about the coastline. Jen, Ryan and Yoav were a pleasure to meet! The food was mediocre but let's face it, we were certainly not there for the food. The... More
