  • Although we could not snorkel due to the high waves and not go into the cave, but it was still a great experience. You can see dolphins but with 100% confidence. And the landscape is incredibly beautiful!

  • Clearly Captain Chris and Brad know their way around Kauai! We saw spectacular views along the way and got up close the the sea caves. We were told ahead of time that snorkeling was not in the itinera...  more »

  • One of the best adventures you can do while on the island. The best captain and staff. All very nice and accommodating. They also take professional photos for you for purchase at the end of the trip.
  • Amazing tour. Dolphins and unmanned coast. Don't feel bad if you don't feel comfortable taking photos on the bumpy ride - they have a ride along photographer you can buy a CD from.
  • Great captain and perfect views (with good weather). Get ready for the bull ride of your life if you sit in the front!
  • SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!! This is the biggest fraud scam I have ever seen. Did not get anything that was advertised. We paid over $500 for absolutely nothing! They are not willing to refund my money so I have started the procedure to get my money back through the atty general consumer complaint dept. I have never been ripped off this bad in my life. The guy that left the other review was spot on. Take it from us DO NOT EVER BOOK WITH THESE PEOPLE, THEY WILL FRAUD YOU. I also asked before our tour date and made sure that they have life jackets on board. THEY INSISTED they did. So when we did stop for a bit, not where promised to snorkel, my daughter wanted in the water. His exact words were "if they need a life jacket they shouldn't be in the water" yet that is the only place there is to go when you have a tiny bladder. I told him that I was pissed that he wouldn't give me a life jacket for her and offered to get it for him since he seems to have forgotten how to get them out. He still did not get one for me. Luckily another tourist let us borrow a blow up one that she had brought. If they shouldn't be in the water without a life jacket then why do they accept tourists as young as 5? How many 5 yr olds are strong enough to swim in the ocean without life jackets??? My 5 yr old isn't. I honestly don't think they even have life jackets on board. After going on a real snorkel tour in Maui for less than half the price through the pacific whale foundation, I saw how extremely bad we were frauded. And guess what, yep even the adults on the Maui tour wore life jackets. All of my kids did too. They had a blast. Completely different from the horrible experience with Na Pali Raft Riders! In closing I will not give up until I get my money back!!! Save yourself and your money.
  • This is an action adventure boat ride. I certainly wouldn't take kids as it is rough. They get you really close to the astounding Na Pali coast, with stories and history. I was really excited to go in the sea caves and snorkel, but the sea was too rough.
