1,000 Reviews and 5 Star Rating,Thank You! [Trip Advisor]

NA Pali Captains

We now have 1,000 Na Pali Coast boat tour reviews on Trip Advisor! THANK YOU, to all of our guest who have shared their reviews over the past 4 years.

While reviewing all these wonderful comments, we noticed something consistently mentioned in the reviews that we don’t acknowledge enough.

We have shared why we believe our Kekaha departure location is better than Hanalei or Port Allen; we have shared why a boat tour is preferable to experiencing Na Pali as opposed to a helicopter tour; we have shared about our top-of-the-line snorkeling equipment, and prime snorkeling location at Nualolo; but we have yet to highlight the most important, unique feature of our company. something that money can’t buy, and no other tour company has…our captains.

Over and over again, it’s our captains who go above and beyond to make sure that each tour is specially catered to our guests on board, who share their live experience and in depth knowledge of Hawaii with our guests, who take extreme caution in care in assessing the conditions and putting safety of all before anything else.

“Our guide, Abraham was not only knowledgeable…but so much fun!! The only person that could have been better is Moses himself! 🙂 seriously though…ask for Abraham.”

“Captain T is the best! I went on NaPali experience in 2013. It was good then, but yesterday’s experience was fantastic! Captain T filled us in on Hawaiian legends as we comfortably careened along the coast. He can really handle a boat. The snorkeling was much better this year, and my favorite part of the experience was getting to swim in the cave! Thanks for an awesome morning, Captain T!”

“We spent the afternoon chillen with Chellen and had a blast! He is probably the best guide we have ever had in Hawaii. He knows everything about the area and is a very skilled boat captain, which was very reassuring when navigating through the small channels of the lava tunnels.”

“This tour was fantastic from start to finish. Our captain Rob was very knowledgeable, funny, and looked out for everyone on board. We got an unbelievable look at the Na Pali coast in the small boat, from inside multiple caves and then from under the water as we got to snorkel. Rob dropped plenty of knowledge about the indigenous people andHawaiian culture, about hiking the trails, and about the island in general. He raised his family here and had a nice local touch to every thing.”

“Our Na Pali experience was amazing. The best part, our captain, Nate. His knowledge of the sites we saw was fantastic. His boat handling expertise was incredible. Maneuvering the sea caves and handling the waves to give us the smoothest most interesting ride possible. Nate also helped everyone move around the boat throughout the day to get the total experience. He even had music qued up at appropriate times in the trip. The sights were spectacular, but our guide made them even more memorable.”

“Our guide was great! Thank you Captain John! You made our trip memorable. He gave us information about the coastline and canyon and pointed out wildlife from sea turtles to mountain goats. His boating skills were incredible! How he was seeing to maneuver into those caves was something else! We left my husband’s wedding ring on board. Within a few hours we receive a call to let us know. The Captain brought it to our resort for us. Thanks again!! We will be back!!”

We are thrilled to work with the best of the best waterman on the coast. Last year, we were honored to have one of our Captains, Abraham Frehm, honored as a Hawaii Ecotourism Association Guide of the Year.
