    What a fabulous experience from start to finish! I highly recommended. Staff was so friendly and helpful and the pilot Nick was the real star of the show. He pointed out everything you would even think of asking and although I was sitting on the end with no door, I felt very safe and you could tell this is a dream job for him! We will definitely be back!

    Took our grandchildren, ages 7-13. The boat ride is fun, exciting and beautiful. Perfect length of time and a great way to see this part of the island. Crew is knowledgeable and attentive. Definitely recommend!

    Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids (10&13) thoroughly enjoyed this Zipline tour. Our guides were Larissa and Kaisen and I truly appreciated the way they handled themselves. They didn’t make a big deal of anything. We’ve been on tours before where you’re doing something “risky” and the non-stop over explaining and cautioning becomes so daunting that even those who weren’t afraid, become afraid. These two were like “heck yeah you should fly upside down; it’s great fun” and they left it at that. We appreciated their professionalism and willingness to answer any questions we had. They were both knowledgeable and always made sure to take care of our 2 kids. Our girls are on the lighter side so they flew them tandem on a couple of runs and on the one run that our oldest wasn’t quite able to make it to the end, Kaisen was quick to jump out and literally pull her back in (after he told her it would be a quick minute while he found the scissors to cut the line 😂) . Truly, it was a fantastic experience and one I’d recommend to everyone!

    Tory and Manu took us on a dirty, fun filled, exciting adventure. We heard some history, saw beautiful scenery, even fished after driving dusty, Kauai back roads. We had a ball!

    This is a must do excursion for anyone who can handle a boat ride with potentially rough seas. The views of the Napali coast are fantastic. The snorkeling is wonderful, with abundant, colorful fish, turtles and even a seal. While the boat ride can be rough, we lucked out on our trip. My wife often gets seasick, but with a patch and two Dramamine tablets, she did fine and thoroughly enjoyed the excursion. The crew was wonderful. Very attentive. Plentiful food and drink. Will definitely do again next time we visit Kauai.

    An absolute must do! We are not snorkeling people so this sunset cruise was perfect for us. We arrived in Port Allen just around 1pm - plenty of time to grab some lunch and beer across the street at the Kauai Brewing Company. We checked-in at the Holo Holo office with no trouble and waited just a few minutes for Captain Mike. Once he finished the high level overview of what to expect we walked the 3 blocks to the Leila. It's a nice boat, comfortable, clean, and plenty of seating. We took off from Port Allen and headed north following the island - we came up on a pod of dolphins that included a few young ones - Captain Mike turned off the motor so we could take in the moment. The coast line is stunning - keep your eyes peeled not only for sea animals but along the mountain there are goats! The crew were friendly and shared their knowledge of the islands which helps the time pass quickly. I took off one star - the food was "eh" - the kalua pork was very, very, very salty, and the pasta salad over dressed for my liking. The brownie for dessert was tasty - and the mai tai when we set sail was a nice touch. Definitely do not miss a boat tour of the Napali coast!

    It was a beautiful 40 minute kayak trip, then a beautiful 40 minute hike with educational history of the island, plants and people along the way to the secret falls! Lunch was great! Thomas was a great tour guide! A definite highlight of our trip!

    This was the best snorkel cruise we have been on! The captain and crew were absolutely amazing ing, helpful, and catering (even getting us drinks and throwing our trash away so that we didn’t have to wobble around the deck during rougher waters). I loved the small traveler group size, which allowed for plenty of space and seating. The food was amazing, which is not typical of group tours. Fabulous breakfast of eggs with sautéed veggies, fruit, and yummy scones. After snorkeling, lunch was served as well as wine, beer, and spritzers. The stunning coast was remarkable and the crew shared so much about it. Finally, the music choices was the cherry on top. Perfect songs to accompany a perfect sail. Thank you!!!!

    The whole tour was wonderful. Going down in the deep hole in the mountain was exciting. The pilot was very knowledgeable about the landscape.

    Our original time was changed due to employee illness, but we adjusted to a later time. It turned out perfect since we were honored to have Levi, as our guide. He shares Hawaiian culture throughout, which I loved!
    The kayaking was fun with two rest stops. I thought the hike up to the waterfall was a "cakewalk", but I'm a runner. Please wear shoes that can grip if you aren't use to hiking. It can get a bit slippery.
    Lunch was included in your fee.
    We were also honored to have Phillipe join us as our second guide since it was a large group.
    I highly recommend! If you are fair-skinned wear a rash guard, the sun can be unforgiving, hat, sun block,etc.
    Most important, have fun and leave nothing behind.

    Our guide Heidi was very knowledgeable. We learned some interesting facts such as the various medicinal qualities of various plants. She told us at the beginning that this was a “touch and sniff” tour. The gardenias are incredibly fragrant. The noni fruit not so much!

    The chocolate tasting in the middle of the tour was so much fun. I had never been to one before and now I eat chocolate differently! We told Heidi that we can no longer eat “regular” chocolate. Lol.

    The tasty treats during the tour included cacao nibs, sugar cane, raw honey from their beehives, and white pineapple, to name a few. The white pineapple is to die for and apparently $30 per pineapple. What?!

    The grounds are beautifully manicured and tiered for an interesting aesthetic effect. We highly recommend this tour!

    This trip exceeded expectations! The captain and skipper shared so much history and info. We saw amazing views and wildlife and went through some magnificent caves. If you are ok with being bounced around on the zodiac boat then don’t miss this trip.
