  • By far the best part of our trip. A lot of these tours are done with large companies that have nice offices and shiny boats, but it’s an automated experience. They go to the same spots everyday and they may or may not see any marine life. I was a little skeptical since their “check-in” spot is a tiny little shack, and not one of the large store fronts like the other options. Debbie does the reservations, and she met us at exactly check in time (7:15am). Captain Lani is a native Hawaiian who has been guiding these tours for over 30 years. He knows Hawaiian waters, he knows the behavior of the marine life, and will make you feel like part of the family. The waters were calm when we went out and the views were breath taking. Some of my favorites parts though were seeing mana rays, sea turtles, porpoise dolphins, and two hump-back whales! We stopped for a short snorkel and saw beautiful fish, reef, turtles, and it was away from all of the other boats with just our crew in the water. The ride was comfortable, beautiful, and we got to experience the island rather than a booze cruise. I would recommend this boat tour to anyone visiting Kauai! My favorite part of our honeymoon!
  • What an awesome family adventure! We saw porpoises, sea turtles, whales, and plenty of fish while snorkeling. All that is just the start, we also enjoyed the awe-inspiring Na Pali coast scenery. We loved standing on the front of the boat enjoying the view and sea spray! The ride back had some big waves but the Captain handled it with ease. Be prepared to get wet and to make some awesome memories!
