It was wonderful. While I was booking there were a few tours I would have booked first but they were sold out. Our trip was last minute so it was understandable. I loved getting to ride the super-raft (fastest boat on Kauai!). I don't often get excited about things but I loved every minute. It was a lot fun and the view was beautiful. Captain Miguel and Silas did a great job as well!

Lady that checked us in was less than welcoming. Seemed very stressed by all the people signing in and not being done “on time”. Bad way to start the morning experience.
icon Response from Host , Aug. 2022
Showing up on time so we can maximize the day for everyone is important to us. Guests call and say they will be 20 minutes late then get a bit emotional when we explain we are obligated by 20 plus other passengers to be timely. Other days its a 88 year old that did not understand this is an adventure. Sometimes its the person calling asking where we are whom we can see calling us while standing literally in front of our door. Yet other days it may be the gruff and confused person that “didn’t know it was going to be a boat ride.” We are very happy to start the morning and when we lose someone in the restroom for 20 more minutes while they actually sneak off for breakfasts instead it does fatigue the spirit. Usually I find in these instances there are two sides to the point. I love our office staff and all they do to make this boat get out on time while exercising a great deal of patience and restraint. Hope you enjoyed the ride and the on time departure.

Trip of a Lifetime !
byrnesjhl

Truly a spectacular day! Don’t do any other tour ! What makes this tour stand out is that the boat is small enough to get into the caves and books and crannies of the Napali Coast, but large enough that it is comfortable- with seats and a bathroom and shade ! The crew was fantastic- Captain Dave and Kannon made sure everyone had a great time and was looked after in terms of safety. Conditions were perfect going out, the snorkeling was beyond amazing and when the water got a little rougher on the way home, Captain Dave’s skill became that much more apparent. I’ve been to the Napali Coast before, but never like this! Literally, do not hesitate to book !! Once word gets out, this will be the hottest seat in town !
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
Thank you for helping get the word out. We love our vessel and enjoy hearing kind words such as yours. Dave and Kannon are doing great things with our guests. Definitely safety first. You got the brochure day as you describe it. Always like to reinforce that this is not a little boat ride. It is a big ta do. We cover a lot of ocean and when its not cooperating its an adventure that can be out of the comfort zone. Prepare for the day! We are doing something spectacular and it is often harder than it looks. Everyone should evaluate their ability and we look forward to working to make it the best fay possible. Mahalo!

Very fun activity! KK was awesome and very knowledgeable. I would have rather gone further up the coast as opposed to snorkeling. There was nothing to see at snorkeling site.

We would love to make it a fun day to Hanalei! You just cant do it all. Some days its wind from the north other days we can stretch it up a little farther but because we are dealing with wind, waves and more than a single group we have to do the best we can with what we have for the day. Glad you had KK. She is a bright light on our team. A star.

We had the perfect day for our rafting adventure and the perfect experienced crew to make it memorable. The caves were amazing, great history lesson and awesome ride ripping thru waves to the sounds of Hawaii and perfect rock playlist! Our grandsons expected to be bored/ were they ever surprised!

This sounds like the grandkids might want you to bring them out again;) Sounds like you have the amazing day. Don't forget to share your pics with us. Maneuvering in the caves is easier when we are not taking pictures too. Rock on!

I was waiting for someone who can appreciate the monumental fay that it was. Epic surf encountered with an epic boat. Definable an “over the top” day. Not everyone can get zen when the waves are pumping but our captains and crew really enjoy the times they get to surf the waves in our super raft. Glad you let go of reality for a little while. The day was supernatural!

Safety is their number one. They will be upfront with you and answer any concern questions you have. I don’t know how to swim. However, I enjoyed and had a blast time! I didn’t snorkel. The group I was in were able to snorkel sometimes unpredictable water will prohibited. I think my captain name was Andy? And the crew Ryder? (I’m so sorry) They were awesome! Regardless, the whole crew are nice! Thank you! Highlight of my trip! 💕
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
Yes it was Andy and Ryder! A great crew for a BIG water day. Andy is a veteran of the coast and excellent boat operator. He makes great decisions regarding the safety of the passengers even when that decision is a simple one. “If you cant swim please don’t start today”. Sometimes not a welcome thing to hear but we are on the end of the earth with no phone service. Radio calls have to be relayed around the coast. It is at least an hour too speed home. A long way to do compressions. Glad you took the safety tips to heart. Thank you for overcoming the conditions and allowing us to bring you to this highlight. your attitude not only made your day wonderful it makes our day as well.

Beware-20 ft historical swells & no refund.
Wanda_C
, Jul. 2022
“Historical” 20 foot swells, beaches closed, high winds, no snorkeling or caves due to ocean conditions caused by hurricane Darby. I called the excursion at nine and asked if it was still on they said they didn’t know they were monitoring it and they would call me back at 11 which they never did. I called them at noon she said she hadn’t heard anything so she assumed it was still going to be OK. Small craft warnings and motorless craft warnings. I asked to reschedule—no. I asked for a refund because it didn’t sound like it was gonna be a good day on the ocean to say the least. They told me they couldn’t give me a refund because I booked it through you. So I think you both suck.
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
Tropical storm Darby did leave some very nice swells with the islands. Legendary surfing with the best of the best having a ball. We encounter these swells every winter at this level and much larger heights. As with all days we evaluate our ability to maneuver and avoid danger. It’s what we do. There was a swell outside the harbor. It was impressive and passable. Where there was no swell? Along the beautiful Na Pali Coast. Leaving the shop and on the boat our guest are notified of what is to come. All are made aware every day, flat water, rough water, windy, rainy or sunny that entering the sea caves is weather dependent. Snorkeling is weather dependent. All are notified in advance that you do not have to go out with us. Our Cancellation policy is 48 hrs. On big days, like referenced we have no problem allowing those who wish to drop out do so. In fact our guests are encouraged to do so if they are not going to be able to enjoy the trilling adventure and possibly miss out on snorkeling. What we will not issue a refund for is to those who are notified prior to the trip of the objectives and what we may or may not be able to accomplish and make an informed decision to join us. At that point you are a passenger and we are going to take you on an adventure. The Na Pali was beautiful the waterfalls were flowing the oceans were calm and the water was amazing. The currents however were strong as addressed in the briefing prior to departure. We work with people from all around the world. Perhaps things get lost in translation. Refunds are possible if requested outside 48 hours if booked direct. They are not possible if one took the journey with us knowing in advance our policy and our plans for the day. It was big water but once one choses to go with us for the day after hearing the brief one has chosen. Third party reservations are challenging for all but that said if you use a third party to book a reservation that party has to issue the refund. We do not have the funds and all your pertaining information. Contact the third party. If a guest books direct we can process a refund immediately assuming we are provided 48 hours notice and or one takes the informed and offered opportunity prior to the trip to opt out. This is only an opt out option when we accept there is a condition that may be above some guests abilities to enjoy. As to the call it was a text. It was answered and the email was replied to as well. Upon check in all were briefed and the decision to participate was entirely optional to make at that time. What was stated is that a refund is not possible though us as this was a third party booking. As such one would have to request through the third party. My hope is you look back on the day and in a month or two and appreciate the skills and abilities of your captain. I hope you can tell your friends with a quivering laugh that you zoomed confidently over those legendary swells and were whisked away to a beautiful calm water unbecoming of the moments just minutes before. On reflection you may appreciate the wisdom of not entering a sea cave in tight quarters and on reflection you may see the professionalism extended in not allowing 28 humans with various abilities into the water when currents are strong. We are not a small craft or motor-less vessel. We are 37 feet with 600 horsepower. Twin engines for safety. As stated, we have these conditions intermittently throughout the winter months. We asses and address these remarkable moments and produce the best trip possible with the day we are given. If necessary no trip will happen and I will be here responding to the rancor of “last minute cancellation” as if there is ever any other kind when dealing with boats, ocean and weather. Enjoy the story of the day Captain J’s took you over the top and brought you back to tell the tale, even if you miss a couple of the details.

Great Time!!

We loved everything! We had a party of 5 but because my 82 year old mom wanted to come, we broke it into 2 different raft adventures. This super raft will not disappoint. You still get the speed. This raft is much more comfortable than the one you have to sit on the side and hold onto ropes with your hands and feet. Captain Dave and Kannon were so informative and made the adventure so much fun. I would absolutely do this one again and my family that did the other raft adventure would do the super raft the next time also. Captain Dave, we also loved the music!!!! Thanks for the highlight of our Kauai trip.

The proximity we can share with the sea cliffs is quite close. Yes the trip is full of scenic waterfalls and beauty beyond almost anywhere. Being there in a safe and comfortable boat is nice. Being there on one that is fast agile and able even better. We love our boat and sharing it with you. Thank for enjoying it all with us!

This was an intense and amazing adventure. But it is not for the faint of heart. The travel on the big ocean waves is jarring on the body and a serious test of any motion sick. The captain was super friendly competent and fun. The water and views incredible.

Beautiful scenery, exhilarating ride. Not for anyone prone to sea-sickness or back problems as you will be bouncing up and down (sometimes fairly violently) for the entire trip. But for those looking for an adventurous tour of the beautiful Napali coast, with quick penetrations of sea caves and the opportunity to see dolphins (we saw dozens right next to the boat!), I don't think it gets much better than this! Highly recommended this bucket list trip!

Did the afternoon tour with my wife and had an awesome time. We sat in the front of the boat which definitely added to the fun. Such a beautiful view of the napali coast. Captain was informative on pointing out all the facts of the area and had a sweet play list of music going the whole time. Def recommend doing this while you’re in Kauai

An epic adventure indeed. Fun to be jamming along the coast at a brisk pace. It is fun for us as well. Glad you enjoyed the music and the view!
