“Exceptional, once in a lifetime kind of scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Tldr yes you should do this

Boat launches informally off a beach. Very little instruction and off you go. Boat felt pretty crowded, you had to negotiate with other passengers to move around. No restroom.

Very awesome scenery our #1 experience in Kauai.

Were given 40 minutes to have sandwich and snorkel. This felt really rushed. We snorkeled for a bit then wolfed down our sandwiches. The tour would be much much better with a bit more time on the coast.

“Beautiful coastline and snorkeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you get seasick take a pill the night before and the morning of the tour. It did help to get in the water and settle the stomach. The boat gets pretty choppy and windy on the return trip. The crew is very nice and provide sandwiches, chips, fruit and drinks on the tour. The tour includes snorkeling also.

“Leave On This Trip Right From The North Shore Of Kauai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

I loved this trip even though the wind had kicked up and made the return trip pretty bumpy I felt very safe.

The trip along Napali was perfect. The boat held 15 people so you get a personalized tour which takes you right up to the caves. The water was too rough on the day we went so we didn't go inside the caves but if you go on a calm day you may even get to go inside a cave.

The weather was warm and sunny so the water was clear and beautiful and Spinner Dolphins swam right next to the boat.

The snorkeling part was fun and we saw a lot of fish... I even swam with a turtle for about five minutes, so cool.

The staff was professional and nice.

This is a beautiful 'must see' trip, especially if you are staying on the North Shore of Kauai it's a five minute drive.

“Wonderful trip down the coast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

The crew was great and very knowledgeable. We learned a lot as we made our way down the coast. The boat is fairly small but very comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone. I liked the more intimate tour. I liked that the boat is small enough to fit into some sea caves and get an up close view of the shore. The snorkeling portion was short and just okay, but given the view of the coast, I would do this trip again. The crew did a great job navigating the rougher ocean on our way back.

“Beautiful trip along the NaPali Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

In past trips to Kauai we've hiked a good portion of the coastal trail but decided to see it from the ocean side this time. Wish we'd done it sooner. What a spectacular journey withe awe inspiring scenery at every moment. Great crew and a fun group of people on the boat. The snorkeling at the turn around point was great with a huge variety of fish and coral.

Was worth every penny just for the view.
