mceruzzi from Millington, NJ gave our tour
mceruzzi had this to say about us:My husband, son and daughter and some of their friends accompanied us on a great tout of the Na Pali coast with Captain Shawn and First Mate Chris. The crew was knowledgable, courteous and friendly. Having a small craft we were able to go into the water caves which was absolutely awesome. The area where we stopped to Snorkel was great as it was within a coral reef and we saw many types of fish as well as turtles. This was by far one of the best days of our visit to Kauai. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to adventure in places the big boats cannot do. It was absolutely amazing. Thank you Captain Shawn and First Mate Chris! Sincerely, Marion Ceruzzi
Tim Gingrich from Lakefield Ontario Canada gave our tour
Tim Gingrich had this to say about us:My wife and I were totally impressed with Captain Sam and his mate Chris. They gave us an extraordinary experience on the Napali Coast. Their knowledge and all around aloha spirit were a real treat. The seas co-operated and we were able to go into all the caves and even some on the return trip to port. The meal was delicious and more than enough even for our huge appetites that we got from snorkeling at the reef. Captain Sam is an expert boat operator and even managed to get over a rogue wave that we encountered with what seemed like little effort on his part (this was no small feat). Our thanks to Cindy for her courteous service and to Sam and Chris for making this first trip to Hawaii a memorable one for us. Hoping to return Tim and Linda Gingrich
SVol from Tennessee gave our tour
SVol had this to say about us:Great trip!! We are repeat customers and definately will be back again soon. Loved going out with Captain Lono and his children. They told us interesting stories about their beloved island - they seemed as happy to be on the boat as the passengers. Lucky for us we got to enter all the caves, saw spinner dolphins, turtles, and had great snorkeling. Lunch was good too. Cindy was a pleasure to work with when I booked the trip. She even helped me sign up for some other awesome adventures, but this was by far the very best! Can't wait to come back.
gardinal from Hanalei, HI gave our tour
gardinal had this to say about us:Chris and Sam (our wonderful tour guides) really made our coast tour worth it! Not only did we get to see spectacular views of the Na Pali coast (I've never seen anything that beautiful), but we also got to venture into a few sea caves and stop and view 2 pods of dolphins swimming along the coast. The snorkeling was wonderful (it was my first time) and even the lunch we were provided was delicious! This was my favorite thing I did on the island, hands down. I would highly recommend this to anything considering it!! Mahalo to Chris and Sam for the wonderful time!
JM D. had this to say about us:My wife and I choose this company to do our tour with because of the great reviews we saw on Yelp and it was recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed at all. This tour was amazing, cruising from Hanalei down the Na Pali Coast line. Our tour guides, Johnny and Capt. Sammy, were what made this experience that much more memorable. They were not only very knowledgeable, but very funny throughout the whole trip. They made us feel comfortable and broke the ice right from the start. This is one of the only boats that is small enough to go inside the seacaves, which are totally worth doing. They are an amazing sight. We saw dolphins, turtles, and awesome views of Kauai. The lunch was exactly what we needed: sandwich, chips, cookies, pineapple, sodas. This is not a luxury tour, it's not intended to be. What you see on the tour is worth every bit of money we paid. It's a bit pricey, but it's the best thing we did while we were on Kauai. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
hockeystop from Westminster, CA gave our tour
hockeystop had this to say about us:To whom it may concern, We had a terrific time!!! Nick our captain was awesome. We saw turtles, dolphins and seals. The weather was perfect. The water was like glass. Check your weather report before you book this trip, these guys are not responsible for the weather and the quality of your trip will depend a lot on that. The snorkeling was the best. Visibility at least 80 feet. We didn't get any pineapple, but I got a ton in the hotel and my girlfriend doesn't mind cutting it up for me. The girlfriend loved the caves and waterfalls. IO got some good video of a pod of dolphins with a baby dolphin swimming along. On the way back Nick opened up the throttle a bit and we got pretty soaked :) It's all good. Very glad I booked this trip. It was the highlight of our vacation so far and we been doing everything. Best regards, John Emerson
Lauren from Oakland, Ca. gave our tour
Lauren had this to say about us:My brother and I had a fabulous time on our trip to see the Napali coast. We were both impressed with the history and knowledge shared by the friendly captain and crew, and of course, the scenery was beautiful! We did this 25 years ago as a family and it was great to see it all again. It is truly a coastline unlike anywhere else. Thanks for an amazing day!
canddwallace from Eugene, OR gave our tour
canddwallace had this to say about us:My wife and I have taken this tour twice and hope to take it again. We have recommended it to friends and family who have visited Kauai. It is truly a beautiful and enjoyable experience.
Brenda Brocher from Houston, TX gave our tour
Brenda Brocher had this to say about us:We LOVE Na Pali Catamaran - one of our favorite things to do in Kauai. We've toured with them 5 times and brought friends and family. They offer a wonderful boat - large enough to be comfortable and fast and small enough to enter two of the sea caves along the coast. The captains seem really competent and we are always impressed with how they handle the boat - and our children :-) The snorkling is fabulous! Take the morning tour for the calmest waters and best chance of seeing the interior of the sea caves.
Colin B. had this to say about us:GREAT way to see the Na Pali coast. Here are some highlights and notes...
- Take something for sea sickness. No way around it, the Pacific is rough even during the calm times.
- GREAT tour guides, a couple of surfer dudes with lots of great local knowledge. The love questions and telling what they know.
- We saw spinner dolphins, sea turtles, lots of fish, reef sharks, a squid and lots of blue, blue water.
- They take you into a couple caves for some great photo opps.
- Wear something warm for the ride back. It gets cold with the water spray.
- GREAT lunch. Lots of food, lots of snacks.
I'd go back just to do this again...
Nusheen D. had this to say about us:I took the morning Napali Coast tour departing from Hanalei in July 2009.
We saw everything I had hoped for along the way; beautiful coastline, dolphins, turtles, and fish. Though the water was the smoothest it had been in a long time, the ride was still choppy on the way back to Hanalei.
Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would take it again.
