Go with KAHANU!!! This is the ONLY Hawaiian owned Na Pali coast tour. Small groups (18 max) means personal service and lots of opportunities to chat with captain and crew. The deck hands were incredibly knowledgeable and great at discussing all of the points of interest along the coastline. We saw so much marine life! The highlight had to be... More

This was our third time traveling with Captain Lani and Catamaran Kahanu. The best trip yet. We made it all the way up Na Pali and even into the sea caves. The catamaran is small enough to make it into the caves, unlike the larger tours which can get the close. This is the tour to take if you are... More

We loved this experience! Awesome captain, great crew, nice small catamaran - only 18 people plus crew. Very family oriented, safe and fun. The Na Pali coast was amazing! We saw a huge pod of porpoises and a calving hunchback whale and the mom. The boat was the perfect size to get close to the coastline for great view and... More

WOW! That is how I would summarize our 5 hour morning Na Pali trip. It was an amazing trip filled with great weather, snorkeling, dolphins, and humpback whales. Captain was able to back into a sea cave to give us a better view and some lucky passengers were able to sit on the back of the boat and let the... More

The captain and crew went above and beyond to ensure that this was a safe and enjoyable cruise..... not only we're we able to see whales, turtles and porpoises but the Captain took us within fingers reach of caves on the shoreline and went the extra mile to ensure all of the guests enjoyed themselves. They truly love what they... More

Our snorkel trip up the Na'pali Coast was a blast with the Catamaran Kahanu. The staff went above and beyond to give us a true Aloha experience you won't get on the big boats. When we passed a pod of dolphins that frequents the Na'pali Coast, Captain stopped to let us hang our feet over the water as a they... More

If you like small groups, personal service, and attention to detail, this Na'Pali tour is the one for you! Catamaran Kahanu is absolutely the best trip on the island. Captain is a local who knows the ocean and the history of Kauai. Attention to safety and comfort were paramount. Emma, the crew member, was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the... More

This was an amazing tour of the Na'Pali coast! We saw pods of dolphins only a foot or two away and whales only a boat's length away! We got to go under a waterfall in the boat and snorkel with the turtles. It was unbelievable.
