We were not able to snorkel due to water/weather conditions. Do come prepared for rain. I wished I had brought a rain jacket. Take medication if you're prone to motion sickness. Even with medication I got sick. The crew took good care of me. Our guide Matt was especially informative during the trip; we liked him very much. I didn't... More

We took the 5 hour snorkel cruise to the Napali Coast, but we never got to snorkel. Apparently it is likely this time of year that you won't get to snorkel due to rough water. So if they know it's likely, don't call it a snorkel cruise! My kids and I were really looking forward to snorkeling. Instead we all... More

We took the 5 hour morning trip. I choose this boat because you ride looking forward so we would be less likely to get sea sick....and we didn't! Captain Ray did an excellent job finding the dolphins, whales, turtles, etc. And he actually steered our boat into a cave. The onboard staff, Stan and Chris, were so helpful in helping... More

From the start, this is a very well run operation. Captain was clear on how folks needed to behave. The crew took time to explain the coast line and help with whale watching. Chris was REALLY helpful throughout the tour. Many thanks to all.

We've toured with this SAME company most every year since 2004. That alone says a lot considering the many companies offering Napoli coast tours. Their purpose built boat offers bench seating and several rows under shade cover. Crew is professional, friendly, engaging, & quite knowledgeable on area & Hawaiian culture. This tour departs from Waimea small boat harbor which makes... More

We cruised with Captain Rob and Chris on Sunday March 6 and it was one of the highlights of our whole Kauain trip. The scenery was breath taking and the whale sightings were incredible. We were thrilled with the whole experience. There were really big swells that day but Rob and Chris were very good at explaining how to stay... More

What an amazing trip on a catamaran from Waimea to almost the end of the Napali Coast. The weather was overcast and raining and the sea was rough when we started on our afternoon trip but we had lots of fun. It's a smaller catamaran and they take about 35 people so it isn't crowded. One of our friends was... More

Captain Rob and his team members made our cruise of the Napali Coast fantastic!! Their concern for everyone on the boat and their ability to guide the boat through some rough waters was amazing. The Napali Coast is absolutely beautiful and the marine life we saw was incredible (dolphins, whales, turtle, manta ray). Highly recommend Liko Kauai Cruises and especially... More

We had a great time on our afternoon trip to the Na Pali Coast. The guides seemed to really enjoy their jobs and were very friendly and easy going. They were attentive to the group's interests and made sure we got a balance of whale-watching, snorkeling, and going up towards Ke'e Beach.

Amazing is all I keep saying. Captain Rob and his crew were awesome. We saw hundreds of dolphins, swimming, jumping, flipping....yep amazing! We also saw several whales on our trip. Each time we saw them, the captain would just about stop the boat and even change course some so we could enjoy them. Also the Napali coast is beautiful. The... More
