My 18 year old daughter and I went on the Napali coast tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Gary was an amazing captain and showed us beautiful sea caves. He and Asher were very friendly and knowledgeable. Janelle was so friendly and helpful also. The trip was beautiful and the snorkeling was amazing. I highly... More

This was my second trip out with Kauai North Shore charters. It is a true seafaring experience and definitely an adventure tour. Such an amazing adventure and the captains Gary and Shawn are excellent boat handlers and knowledgable tour guides. Both times we saw spinner dolphin pods and enjoyed spectacular views of the Na Pali coast. I highly recommend it,... More

Trip was amazing. The lady at the front desk was great, very polite and helpful when I called to make a reservation. I told her what dates we were going to be on the island and she called me the afternoon we got there and said that the weather for the morning I scheduled showed thunder storms but there was...

Amazing tour!!! Went in the late spring and was able to venture into many of the caves for the first time of the summer season. Four hours is the perfect amount of time along the Na Pali coast! The captain, Spencer, and 1st Mate, Asher, are super informative and answered many questions. They made a fun trip, into an amazing... More

We had a great time the caves and snorkelling were super, and the boat trip is amazing. Sean and Asher were great hosts giving us information about the coast line along the way. A really worthwhile adventure for all ages without back or knee problems , our group ranged in age from 10years old to 70 years old. We booked... More

Hey, if you like the water, this is an experience you should strongly consider. We went for a helicopter ride a few days before, and although that was awesome, the zodiac ride/snorkel trip was much better value for the dollar. I recommend the morning trip if given the choice, as the water will be likely to be calmer and clearer.... More

So glad I picked this tour, we had a blast! We had a spectacular sunny day, my Facebook friends thought my photos were photo shopped. Yes, it is bouncy and wet but we felt safe with Captain Zack. We went in all the caves, stopped for jaw dropping photos and had a great time snorkeling with turtles and tropical fish.... More

A great way to see the Na Pali Costa. Loved every minute of it. I'd recommend this to any person, but if you have knee or back issues then maybe going on one of the more sedate catermarans would be advisable. I happily go again with this company.

We got a call the day before we were supposed to go and were told that our afternoon tour (better for pictures) had been canceled because the waves had been too choppy in the afternoons over the past week. We had to reschedule for the 7:15AM trip on the only day they had available while we were there and shifted... More
