Dreams can come true! - Join us for a five-hour experience you will remember forever. Kauai's Na Pali coast is one of the most spectacular attractions in the world. Avoid the crowds and climb aboard a vessel that allows you to have a closer look. Our boats are the most practical size and design for touring Na Pali. Large enough for comfort and small enough to enter and explore ALL of the sea caves! Allow our small family operation to provide you with your Na Pali experience. Space is limited; reserve your tour today!

This was an incredible trip! Our Captain, Drew, was amazing. He took us through every sea cave and educated us on history, the hiking trail through the coast, camping, local beaches and restaurants. This is a tour not to be missed!

Captain Abe was amazing! He made the entire day so much fun and really knew what he was doing. Small boats are the way to go! You won't be able to go in all the beautiful sea caves if you choose a larger boat. Fun...More

There were 5 of us with the captain for 4 hours. We gave him 150. I would think 10-20% is appropriate. Me Layne we gave a lot but we LOVED the experience and felt very safe on our return bumpy ride!
