Our family took a morning Bali Hai trip to the Na Pali coast. We've done just about every activity you can do in Kauai, including a Na Pali snorkel trip from Port Allen. Bali Hai is a much better way to go! You can leave...More

This is the way to see the Na Pali Coast! We went into amazing sea caves and stopped at a great snorkeling spot. Riding on the boat was a thrill. Captain Joe and Chris were very nice and made sure we had fun.

Capt Joe and his nephew, Chris, were so attentive to our 13 year old grandson. They talked to him about the area and pointed out where movies were filmed, went into the sea caves, and snorkled with the turtles. Chris even used my Go Pro...More

The seas were a bit rough but the captain and co-captain were great! They were very informative about the area. They were able to get us to some spinner dolphins without interfering with the dolphins. In spite of higher water, we were able to get...More

So glad we choose Bali Hai! We had an absolute blast with Captain Joe and his dog, Wodi. With just 3 passengers we had our own private tour. Great views, exhilarating racing in and out of caves and water falls, snorkeling at Tunnels Reef, spinner...More

Choosing Captain Joe and Bali Hai Boat Tours was the best choice to see the Nepali Coast! I chose them because they launch from Hanalei Bay close to Nepali, only take a max of 6 on board and are very flexible and accommodating. Captain Joe's...More
