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!

Hi! It cost our family $553 for 2 adults & 1 child. We took the early morning one at 7. It probably lasted a good 5 hours. Great experience! Enjoy your trip. Wish I was going!!
