Upon learning that we were going to Kauai people strongly suggested taking the tour up the Napali Coast. After some research online I gave my wife the choice of the relaxing catamaran snorkel tour or the "raft" tour on the inflatible. To my surprise she picked the inflatible- she thought it would be more interesting. Well the tour didn't disappoint- our hosts TJ and Jason were great- personable and informative. I know they do this day in and day out yet they have found a way to keep it fresh for each new group of land lubbers. The ride itself is entertaining in that you better hold on to the ropes or you'll be swimming with the fishes. A lot of dolphins- we stopped a few times to watch the Spinner dolphins (they jump and spin in a playful manner). We were blessed with a beautiful day to boat up the coast past the Navy missle base and up to the majestic coast line of cliffs, beaches and caves. After about 3 hours of taking in the sights of numerous movies we stopped at a beach where we unloaded and set up for a tour of an old Hawaiian village, lunch and snorkeling. Waiting for us on the beach was a monk seal sunning after what looked like a good meal. These animals are protected and they know it. He later joined us for a swim while we were snorkling (KST provides the equipment). The lunch was good for sandwiches, chips and cookies- more than enough water and soft drinks.
