In the midst of the feeding frenzy that is so many of these Hawaiian tour companies, north shore is an oasis. To start the experience, Jeanelle was very helpful giving us guidance from the first call. She had a kind and professional demeanor. We set out on time and the boat was ready for us as soon as we got... More

If the conditions are right (which they were perfect when we went), this is hands down the coolest thing you will do in Kauai. Besides an amazing, up-close view of the majestic mountain peaks and coastline, we were surrounded by spinner dolphins, we snorkeled with sea turtles, and we zipped in and out of amazing sea caves, thanks to the...

We went on the boat to Na Pali Coast. It was amazing, it is beautiful and we went in caves with the boat. Snorkeling was really good. Everything perfect arranged an experience that I will never forget.

Very smooth booking experience. Going out with a small group made it very fun. Gary and Kai were very personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. This is a trip my husband and I took during our honeymoon but we would definitely do it again. The views are extremely beautiful, the trip includes going into several caves and stopping for photo opportunities while... More

We did everything in Kauai (Helicopter tour, multiple hikes, Queen's bath, on and on)... but our favorite was this boat cruise. The raft is way better than other boats because you can go in and out of caves. Gary (the owner and the captain of our tour) is super knowledgeable about Kauai history and culture... he mixes the history and... More

We came across North Shore Charters by happy accident. My husband and I waited too long to book a Nepali coast tour. We spoke to Janelle and she was able to fit us in on the last day that we were in Kauai. We went in with very low expectations given our last minute booking, however, Sean and Kai blew... More

I didn't end up going on the charter and had a terrible experience with their owner. I fell on some rocks and hurt my neck the day before the charter--I called them that day to discuss rescheduling, and they didn't accommodate that or offer to let me cancel. In the end I was forced to cancel. After a week of... More

My second visit to Kauai and taken three previous Napali Coast excursions, this excursion with North Shore team has been by far my favorite. Very personalized and well planned and executed. You will not be left disappointed!

Beginning with the phone call to Janelle to obtain information about the tour, all the way to the end of our amazing tour with Janelle's van ride back to our car, this trip was 100% perfect!!

My 18 year old daughter and I went on the Napali coast tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Gary was an amazing captain and showed us beautiful sea caves.
