  • My family with two kids (8 and 10) had a fantastic tour with Captain Makai. We shared the tour with a really great couple from Germany who we met up during the tour. Captain Makai is chilled out Hawai...  read more »
  • Captain Makai mostly does trips in the summer as his boat is smaller and less suitable for rough seas. So it took some coordination to get a right weather in March. But it was worth it. Having a boat ...  read more »
  • Makai was an excellent guide, host and captain -- we were blessed with a rare day of moderate ocean conditions, sun and terrific sights! Swam with spinner dolphins, saw many interesting sights and enj...  read more »
  • 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.
  • What was so nice about the Napali Makai tour was the fact that we got to choose where and what we did! We had done the cookie cutter "Big Boat" tours in the past and really only got a glimpse of the coast. After Makai, we now feel like we've truly "Experienced" the coastline. Best trip ever! Thank you!
  • 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.
