"Great raft excursion!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 17, 2018 NEW
We’re regular visitors to Kaua’i and enjoy doing excursions of many kinds. The raft ride we took on Feb 16, 2018, was one of the best excursions in our 30+ years of traveling. Kalen and Robert were fantastic hosts with fun facts and interesting sites to show along the Napali coast. And, even though this was our third coastal tour we were amazed at how much sea life we could encounter in a short four hours. Spinner and Bottle nose dolphins, sea turtles, shark, many birds, and of course Humpback whales. We were very fortunate to have three males slapping their pectoral fins and tales at close range and then capped off their show by mile kicking and rolling multiple times. Great tour, thanks Capt Andy’s!!

Captain Roy took us on an incredible 5 hour journey down the Napali coast. He was full of fascinating facts and stories about the history and culture of Kauai. Heather, Jacob and Bobby were a delightful crew. Very professional and kind. We saw multiple whales and dolphins, cannot recommend this excursion enough!

"6 hour raft trip was awesome"

The 6 hour Na Pali RIB trip was a ton of fun and super enjoyable. We had amazing views of the coast and saw several whales breaching, dozens of spinner dolphin, and several sea turtles. We entered several sea caves and our captain took the exciting route riding just outside the breaking waves. The lunch and drinks provided surpassed expectations. The crew was fun and friendly, but some of the narration seemed a bit inaccurate. Our trip went a little longer than scheduled, which I viewed as an extra bonus, but another couple on the boat was irritated because they had some other plans. The extra time enabled us to see two separate whales breaching so my message to Capt Andy’s is to ignore the whiners and extend the trips in cases like this! Being the winter time, it was a bit rough, but not super uncomfortable. Nobody on the boat got seasick. The trip does require strength to hold on to the boat and the desire to get wet and bounced around. If you don’t love the water or love boats, this probably is not the best trip for you, but if you’re interested in finding out if you love the water then give this a try and you’ll find out!

Great experience especially because of the weather. Light N/W wind and sells of only 4ft made this a very easy trip. Sure do not want to do this if swells are over 20 ft, sometimes in the winter even 60 ft. Captain Kyler (where was Andy?) and his crew (Greg and Luke) did a great job and really made a difference. We left on time!! After about 20 minutes we arrived at the snorkeling spot. Was a great location with plenty of fish, close to a reef. Also saw many spinner dolphins on the way there. After the snorkeling event it was full speed ahead to Napali. Saw a few whales in the distance during this leg. Once there Kyler did a great job explaining all the features and peculiarities of the coast. Was very good. After looking at the whole coast it was full speed beck home. Total roundtrip is about 80 miles and took 5+ hrs. Food, breakfast and lunch was very good. Great experience.

We did the morning BBQ lunch cruise and it was a highlight of our trip. We saw several schools of dolphins, whales, flying fish, and manta ray. Our lunch choices were grilled cheeseburgers and teriyaki chicken, both were delicious! The staff was extremely helpful throughout the entire trip. It was a great experience and a great way to get a close look of all the cliffs of the coast.
