“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2010

We did the morning tour a few weeks ago and loved it. We lucked out with the weather but Captain Bob did a great job showing us the coast and telling us about the history. There were only 14 people on our tour which I think is the most they take at once. It was nice because there was enough room for everyone and we weren't cramped on the boat. We saw some of the raft style tours and the people were packed in there along the edge and it didn't look like a whole lot of fun. We got a few splashes of water on ours but they must have been soaked on the raft. This tour also leaves from the north side of the island so you don't waste as much time getting to the coast as the tours that leave from the south end. We saw some dolphins on our tour and Captain Bob circled back so we could get a good view of the show they put on for us. On the way back there was another tour boat behind us and they didn't even slow down to get a look at the dolphins. I would highly recommend this tour.

“Amazing--great way to start a Kauai vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2010

We took a morning trip with Na Pali Sea Breeze on May 20, 2010, our first full day in Kauai, and thoroughly enjoyed it! I checked out many reviews for different catamaran cruises and found the best reviews overall for Sea Breeze; we weren't disappointed! Loved leaving from the North Shore--amazing views the entire time. We saw a beautiful rainbow after a light early morning rain and one sea turtle, but no dolphins. However, the snorkeling was amazing--the water was very clear and calm; we saw several reef sharks (they rarely bother humans unless you first go out of your way to bother them!) and lots of beautiful fish. We snorkeled at several other spots on Kauai and this was the best by far! It was too choppy to go into the sea caves, but we did pull in close enough to get photos. The lunch of deli sandwiches, chips, fruit, cookies and sodas or water was delicious and filling--just right after an early start to the day and some snorkeling. Both Captain Bob and his first mate were great about telling us about Na Pali coast history and answering all our questions. I was worried about sea sickness, but had no problems whatsoever. The trip back was a bit bouncier, but it was quite fun for this 50-yr-old! I don't think the grin left my face the entire trip!

“Na Pali Coast Tour with Sea Breeze”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2009

Went on a 4 hour morning snorkel / tour boat with Captain Bob on the "Sea Breeze" last month out of Anni Beach. There were about 14 of us - perfect size group given the size of the boat. We saw many spinner dolphins, a few turtles and beautiful scenery all around us. Capt. Bob took us into a couple of the sea caves which was really cool. They served snacks on the way up and a nice lunch after our snorkel stop. The weather was perfect - The ride back was a little rough though - they do an afternoon tour so your really flying on the way back. I was glad that we were on a bigger boat (35 ft.). We saw some rafts boats out there with alot of people on them - not the way I would want to go.
Na Pali Coast is just beautiful.
