We had the best time with Manu ( I think that was our captains name, I could be way wrong). We booked the Ocean Raft Tour about 3 weeks before out visit to Kauai. Our captain was so friendly and took the time to explain Hawaiian history and pointed out landmarks on our way to the Na'pali. We went in a few caves - waves permitting, saw bottle nose and spinner dolphins, and we did see a few whales in the distance. The snorkeling spot wasn't great. It was cold and the current was pretty strong so we couldn't do much. Me, my husband and his parents were the only ones to snorkel. I have to hand it to our captain for being an excellent driver. On our way back to the marina the weather started to turn and the waves and wind were getting pretty nasty. Everyone was soaked and hanging on to dear life. The captain slowed the boat down so we would get rocked by the waves, but had to at the same time go fast so we wouldn't get caught in the real nasty stuff. Mad props for his handling skills. Everyone in my party enjoyed the crazy ride back. Their bottoms not so much though. Make sure you wear long enough shorts to protect your bottom from chaffing. Now I'd book this again, but in the summer time when the weather is more likely to be nice and the water is a bit warmer. I can imagine how cool it would to actually go in the caves and the snorkel spot would be much cooler in the summer. We had other members of our party go on the catamaran and they had no problems navigating the waves on the way back and said it was a very smooth and nice ride. I would recommend booking the catamaran during the winter months. Overall we enjoyed our experience with Kauai Sea Tours and recommend it to everyone.

Family of four (two teen boys) took the snorkel raft adventure. Jordan and Jamie were excellent, knowledgeable, and environmentally respectful guides on our adventure. They shared historical Hawaiian stories as well as pointing out interesting places along the way especially on the breathtaking Na Pali Coast. The weather on the way back was a bit rough but we felt completely comfortable and safe in their hands. Absolutely recommend this tour to see the beautiful coast, dolphins, (possibly whales), and have a few hours of entertainment and fun! Ask for Jordan & Jamie!

This was my 5th time out to sea with Kauai Sea Tours and I have loved every minute so this time I decided to do the Whale Watching Tour, a 3 hour tour. The crew is so good and friendly and helpful as well as knowledgeable! We saw so much sea life, whales for sure frolicking along with spinner dolphins and turtles. Great food and drinks too! What's not to love!

We took the Half-Day Snorkeling Raft Tour up the Na Pali Coast with Captain Jordan and assistant Shane. We chose the raft so we could go in the sea caves, which were awesome! We also saw sea turtles, monk seals, tons of spinner dolphins, flying fish, and a mama and baby humpback whale! The conditions at Nualolo were not favorable for snorkeling, since it was the start of spring, so we snorkeled further south, but it was great. Because it's such a small group, we felt like we were out with a bunch of friends. Jordan and Shane made everyone feel comfortable. The raft tour is definitely not for everyone, because it was rather tiring holding on to the ropes as the boat cruised through the waves. But it was just the adventure we were looking for!

The tour was amazing!!! My friend and I went on the Snorkel and Rafting Adventure, and it really was an unforgettable trip! Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into because it is quite the wild ride. If you're up for some thrills and have a positive attitude (and no bad back), this tour is for you! The boat was like a zodiac raft, and we all sat on the edge of the raft and hung onto the ropes so we wouldn't fall off! (But, they said they've never had anyone fall out before). Luckily the waters were pretty calm most of the time; at some points we were really bouncing on the waves which made it exciting and made you grip the ropes pretty tightly! It was like a roller coaster ride. My back was a little sore by the end of the tour but it was a small price to pay for a fantastic day. We went into three different sea caves which were super cool. In one of them, the ceiling had caved in many years ago, revealing a bright blue sky above us. It was so beautiful, I could barely believe it was real. Larger boats can't go into the sea caves, so be sure to choose the adventure tour if you want to see those. We saw just about all the wildlife you could see in the ocean (except for sharks), and the crew was sure to be safe and respectful when near the animals. We floated near a beautiful large turtle and cruised with a pod of about 70 spinner dolphins who put on a show for us! Even though it was the end of whale season, we also saw a mother whale teaching her newborn baby how to dive down into the water. We even saw 3 monk seals, and it's rare to even see one swimming in open water. The ocean has so many wonders! We also got to hop out of the boat a couple times and got to snorkel at the end. The water was so blue, clear, and refreshing! I get seasick easily, so I was expecting to get a little queasy. Even though I took Dramamine and ate ginger beforehand, I did throw up midway through the tour. But it wasn't a big deal (aim outside of the boat) and I STILL had a great time. Most of the ride you're going really fast and the wind is in your face so it's fine; it was only when we stopped that I would start feeling a little wobbly. Jordan and Shane were our crew members and they were the best tour guides ever!! I'm from O'ahu so I wasn't expecting to learn much on the tour but I was super impressed. Both born and raised on Kaua'i, they told us Hawaiian legends, explained the history of some of the villages that were located along the Na Pali coast, taught us about the rock and lava formations, knew a lot about the sea life, pointed out hikes to go on, and told us about life on Kaua'i so we could get a sense of what it's like to live there. They were also watching out for us to make sure we were safe and doing well. Shane gave me soda to help with the motion sickness. They told a lot of jokes and really wanted us to have the best tour we could. Shane took great pictures of us (see below)! They played great music like some favorites from Moana. Jordan was a great captain: he handled the boat expertly and tried his best to minimize our discomfort. He did some donuts for us at the end! So fun. Some tips: - Take dramamine beforehand! - Apply lots of sunscreen since you'll be in the sun for 5 hours. Especially your thighs & shoulders. Don't forget to reapply midway through the tour. - If you want to take lots of pics, bring a clear waterproof bag for your phone so you can take do so worry-free. (They do give you a large waterproof bag though) - It gets windy when the boat goes fast! Jordan said the boat can reach 80 mph. You might consider wearing a light jacket. Hats fly off easily so strap them on tight. Sunglasses are also good as long as you keep them on. - Wear a swimsuit with clothes over that are easy to take on and off. Think about bringing a towel even though you will dry in the sun. - Probably don't go in the winter months when the waves are huge. We went in March, but the waters are probably the calmest in the summer. - Be ready for a wild ride!
