This was an amazing trip. Small boat yet comfortable. Don the captain was great at getting us into the caves. And Red the crew was so awesome. Knowledgeable, funny, entertaining, helpful. So glad we did this trip. Worth it.

Unfortunately, the day we went the weather wasn't great. The good news was we had a great captain and he was able to get us into the caves safely, despite the bad weather! Red (staff on boat) was attentive and helpful in every way possible!...More

At first I was nervous about the size of this tiny boat but the captain Red was excellent. We saw dolphins, monk seals and sea turtles. Red could sail right inside the caves.

Boat small enough to get into sea caves, which is why you do this tour and not the helicopter. Crew seemed to have loads of experience without being jaded, hard to do when you are doing that tour twice a day. Office staff a dream...More

Would highly recommend Napali Coast Hanali Tours - the trip was the highlight of our vacation. The Napali Coast is absolutely amazing and shouldn't be missed. The guides were really good, snorkeling was great and the lunch really hit the spot.
