Napali Coast Tours

Are there any large catamarans that tour the Napali Coast from Hanalei or anywhere from that area? We will be going early April and hope that the seas are not too rough at that time.

One more question.

Does Kauai tend to cloud up toward the end of the day in early April?

I heard that it rains once a day.

If we were to do a helicopter ride, would a late afternoon tour be okay?

I know it depends on the weather from day to day, but on the whole, is that the pattern?

We went with Liko Kauai Cruises in March ... if you do depart from the South Shore -- I think they are the ones to go with. They start out farther west, closer to Napali, and they went further up the coast than the other boats. It was pretty rough going out as you got close to the north side, coming back was fine. They put up to 32 people on the boat. There were some smaller boats out, but we saw another small one that cancelled because it was too rough.

Book early in the trip, our afternoon reservation was cancelled by the company but we were able to reschedule for the morning -- would have missed the trip if not, because we were heading home the day after.

We did a Napali Coast Tour this week with Captain Sundown out of Hanalei Bay and it was awesome! There were 13 of us on the catamaran and were treated very well with David and the Captain. We saw the beautiful coastline, did a little snorkeling, saw magnificent whales perform - phenomenal. The guys were very knowledgeable and helpful. It was a great day.

We rode with Captain Sundown yesterday out of Hanalei bay, six hours and awesome. Nice close views up close, good snorkeling and a wild wet ride home. Arrived back cold and wet, but thrilled with our adventure.
