  • We saw this from Captain Andy's boat trip. The view was stunning and it was well worth it!! Make sure to book a trip out the Na Pali coast so you can see it.  more »
  • It can only be seen from the air or the sea. A helicopter tour of the island is a must to fully appreciate and see the incredible colors and secluded beaches.  more »
  • I have been to Hawaii six times. Never been to Kauai. Wow what a cool fun place. Flying over the Na Pali coast, definitely bucket list material.  more »

  • Captain Makai gives an awesome private charter tour. We were visiting from Maui, and were originally going to go on the larger Catamaran tour with about 50 people-- I am so happy that didn't work out and we went with Captain Makai instead! His tour is more personal as we only had 6 guests onboard. His boat is clean and very well kept. We saw dolphins, turtles, awesome views of the Na Pali coastline, and even went inside one of the caves. Makai fed us delicious sandwiches and juice/ water. We also stopped at a great snorkel spot. I highly recommend Captain Makai-- it was our favorite adventure we had in Kauai!!!
  • Nice captain and crew. We chartered the catamaran for our family. Great way to see the coast at Sunset.
  • Captain Makai made this a wonderful trip!
  • My husband and I wanted to go whale watching while in Kauai, but it looked like a lot of the other outfits were on big boats with a lot of people and included a snorkel trip, which we didn't want. Luckily we were able to find Napali Makai. The boat is much smaller, so you have a more personal experience. We were able to spot a pod of 4 to 5 whales relatively quickly. We continued to spot this pod several times during our excursion. We loved our experience with Captain Makai and would definitely use him again. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a smaller boat with a more personal experience.
  • I have been on one of the big boat cruises up the Napali coast. It came complete with canned speeches & bad food & distant views. This is the opposite --You will connect with nature. Makai will answer any question communicating his deep knowledge of the ocean and the mountains. He is attentive and can sense what you want. Go by your self, or charter the boat -- it is all good. Your $ and time is better spent on the ocean than in a noisy helicopter flying around for an hr. I tried that too.
