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!

We had an excellent experience and this was one of the highlights of our vacation on Kauai. Captain T is a fantastic guide and made the trip as casual and comfortable as a ride out with friends from start to finish.

I chose Na Pali Experience for a trip around the west side of Kauai because the boat size and passenger capability are smaller than the competitors, allowing a more private adventure for my beloved and I. It was my hope we would be grouped with...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!
