Would highly recommend this boat trip to any group of any age. Our party of 8 is filled with a range of ages from 13 to 87 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only is the scenery absolutely spectacular but due to the flexibility of...More

This is a really fun half day out for those with an adventurous spirit! The zodiac boats are not for the faint-hearted. You sit up on the inflated sides, holding on to ropes to keep you stable, zipping across the ocean at high speeds. I...More

We were instructed to check in at 7:00 am for a 7:30 am departure. When we arrived at 7 am, "Captain Chris" was not there yet. We ended up not leaving until 8:30 am because two of the other passengers were late, which was frustrating....More

Clearly Captain Chris and Brad know their way around Kauai! We saw spectacular views along the way and got up close the the sea caves. We were told ahead of time that snorkeling was not in the itinerary as it was cold and a little...More

We were told we needed to reschedule our trip from noon to 7:30 am because of wind warnings. Turns out going earlier worked in our favor. This tour allowed us to see amazing views of the na pali coast line. We weren't able to enter...More

Thank you for your feedback, and we understand your disappointment in not being allowed to enter the sea caves or snorkel on your tour date. As we get into fall and winter season, the northwestern shores of the Hawaiian Islands will receive greater surf height...More

Since there are no roads to see the Na Pali coastline, you have to view it by sea or air. The 30 foot Zodiac rafts are very safe and give a thrilling ride. Captain Chris is very experienced and points out things of interest and...More

The tour started by getting bogus directions from the receptionist. Then we were met by the owner of the company who didn't introduce himself. When we got on the boat he made a inappropriate comment to my wife which was rude. He was insensitive and...More
