We had a fabulous time with Captain and Emma! If you want to experience a trip with a captain and folks who have all of the knowledge of Kauai and the coastline, in addition to a great tour and lunch-go with Catamaran Kahanu-hands down. They are not a commercial out of state or out of area company-Capt has been on the ocean here all of his life and knows his stuff! Not a packed boat of people-perfect trip!

The good.
The boat was small but that's what we wanted.

The not so good.
We did not get a chance to snorkel when other boats did.
The captain had almost no humor and sounded like a broken record.
The seats were terrible and uncomfortable.
Even with the bad waves, I managed to still fall asleep because the tour was so boring.

Aloha Joshua, On behalf of everyone at Catamaran Kahanu I apologize that your trip did not live up to your expectations. I want to be sure to address the things you brought up in your review. We are a local family business and pride ourselves on sharing our knowledge and aloha with our guests. Safety is our number one priority onboard. Captain has decades of experience on the water around Kauai and we won't take unnecessary risks like letting guests snorkel in rough ocean conditions. Captain also makes it a priority to repeat important pieces of information to avoid any dangerous situations. As for seat comfort, we have multiple sitting areas and allow our guests to move around the boat to make themselves comfortable. We hope you will give us another chance the next time you visit.

Best,
Jordan

I have been on 3 Napali Coast boat tours and Kahanu is hands down the best! Their small boat made for a personal and intimate experience and it was just perfect for our 5 and 7 year old. Catamaran Kahanu felt like we were out on the ocean on a friends boat exploring and experiencing what the coast has to offer. Captain Lani had a special kindness towards the kids and was excited to show them the porpoises and get them in the water to snorkel. We are so glad we chose Kahanu!
