Another charter company cancelled on us at the last second during our trip. After some scrambling, I found Komohana and after explaining our situation to Koa, he made room for us on his schedule and off we went. I'm so glad it worked out like that. We had an amazing trip with Koa. Dolphins, caves, snorkeling (and an unfortuate encounter with a Portuguese Man O' War jellyfish (it sounds much worse than it is). We had a really excellent time and if you're up for a private charter (highly recommended) I would suggest you book with Komohana.

A friend recommended captain Koa. The Na Pali tour with Komohana was the highlight of a fantastic trip. Captain Koa was fantastic! We took a family of five. The boat was just the right size. We played with a large group of spinner dolphins on the way out. He took us into caves and splashed (soaked us) in Na Pali water falls. I was thrilled when we went into dark sea caves and even more speeding out of them. Impressed by his skill of getting into and out of the sea caves. His knowledge of the Na Pali cost was great. We did see the cliff side owl! We finished with snorkeling. We encountered a sea turtle that was enjoying a spa treatment from a group of small fish.

We went on coast tour with Capt Koa and loved it! The boat is nothing special, a small fishing type boat with bench seats for 6 people, and a little bit of shade. However, the ride looked a lot more comfortable than the zodiac tours we saw. The trip was approx 4.5 hours. It's about 1 hours to the scenic coast, and an hour back (winds are factor), which leaves about 2 hours to swim, snorkel, explore the coast, and race spinner dolphins. He knew the best spots for dolphins. Koa didn't stop at the first pod of 3 like the other boats (my daughter got some serious FOMO), but kept going to a spot where we were surrounded by 40! He told us stories and the history of different beaches, and we went into caves and under waterfalls. I'm a budget conscious traveler, so the price tag was a shock for us, but they are a small family business, and very responsive. They offered us a local military discount, and it was worth every penny. My kids will NEVER forget the day. All of four of us were giddy with delight. Experiences like this are the very reason we travel. A local connection with an awe inspiring backdrop. (bring your dramamine for sure or you might not enjoy it as much as you should)

A small group of us were looking for a charter that would show us the Napali coast, snorkeling and views of Kauai. Koa our captain delivered! It’s a family owned buisness-Koa and Bethany make sure you get the type of charter that you are looking for. You will find your charter adventurous and tailored to you!!! We saw dolphins, a whale, a turtle. Koa is a native and gives lots of history of the area as well. Highly recommend!!

Absolute highlight of our trip! Any tour agency will take you to the NaPali Coast and allow you to enjoy its natural wonders. But Komohana Charters is something else! From the reservation of the trip with personalized advice to the tour itself. Probably the best experience of our two week stay in Hawaii! An absolutely unforgettable experience, in very experienced hands. Koa knew exactly where to take us and when. If you want to experience the Na Pali Coast from the sea, keeping the opportunity to have a full chartered boat all to yourself, and all that for a reasonably similar price as the big companies, don't look any further!
