"A fun way to see the Napali Coast."
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 17, 2017 NEW
We took the catamaran tour. The tour started a little late but we were still able to see all of the sights. Be sure to take medication BEFORE getting on the boat if you are at all susceptible to sea sickness. 5 people out of 40 got sick on this cruise. They looked miserable. You will see the Napali Coast up close and personal. We were supposed to snorkel, but the water was too cloudy so we did a swim in the deep ocean instead which was fun. You get a continental breakfast buffet and a sandwich and salad buffet for lunch. Plus free soft drinks, water, beer wine and mai tais. We preferred the more stable catamaran over the rafts. We noticed that the people on the raft trips were really bumped around on the waves and there was no way to get out of the sun for 6 hours. On the catamaran you can get in the shade, or stay in the sun, your choice. We saw lots of dolphins on this trip.

"Insane crazy adventure on a rib!"

Our friends, 1st timers on Kauai, wanted to see the Napali Coast and the sea caves. We called around and Kauai Sea Tours had the best rate for a rib ride. We got lucky on the day we went because the conditions were perfect and we got to see 7-8 waterfalls, 5 sea caves, a sea turtle here and there, and lots of spinner dolphins. 1 of the waterfalls was in the sea cave and the spinner dolphins were jumping out of the water and displaying their acrobatic skills! Even though there's snorkeling on the tour, I think you are better off snorkeling Tunnels if you want to see marine life and swim with sea turtles. Captain John and JR were awesome guides because they were informative and hella funny. Captain John had mad skills. He shot us in 1 end of a sea cave and out the other.

My husband and I went on this. The boat wasn't full, so that was nice. The team: Greg, Evan, Francis, and Sarah were super awesome fantastic. The perfect amount of safety first, chill, and lots of knowledge about the area. We got to snorkel, and even though it was lower visibility than some other days it was amazing. We saw at least 5 sea turtles and tons of fish. On the boat we saw spinner dolphins and even some babies! The food was good, too. Pretty healthy with great selection of fresh fruit and sandwiches then finished off with drinks. Thank you!

"Caring, Funny, Informative, Great!"

Loved this tour; already lost $300+ on lousy snorkeling trip on Big Isle, worth the $400+ for family for this. Captain Kauai (yes, that's his name) was so-o-o-o nice, and funny, and informed. Even got to know names. Crew was great. I got a bit sea sick at very end (me and only one other person) and they were right there long b/f I lost it, trying to help me be more comfortable, best location on boat. Crew was super attentive - brought drinks, food to our seats, always asking if they could do anything more. We took dinner tour (leaves 2 pm), really lunch and dinner b/c served great appetizers right away. Free and plentiful alcohol (after snorkeling). Saw few pods of dolphins on way out, great snorkeling spot picked. Was highlight of our trip. Oh, boat as spacious, smooth, easy to get around in (and I'm disabled - use cane - oh, they were solicitous to my needs in that regard too). Great outfit.

Captain Kauai told us in the beginning that we were going to have an amazing day, and without a doubt, he and his crew provided us the most memorable experience. This included cruising with dolphins, seeing sea turtles, close brushes with waterfalls, the beautiful Na Pali coast, snorkeling and a wonderful sunset. The Captain's stories were so beautiful combining history with Hawaiian folklore making the experience even richer. The crew was amazing in sharing their own stories and history. Our vacation was incredibly epic and this cruise certainly put it over the top.
