Amber D. and Captain Eric This tour was fantastic

Captain Eric and Kyle were attentive, knowledgeable and made our trip up the coast and back memorable. I loved going into all the various caves. We saw sea turtles, dolphins, seals, snorkeled, and The Nā Pali coast is some of the most beautiful scenery out there, it is magical. The weather was great which was great. This tour is on a zodiac boat which makes it so much fun but you are holding on most of the trip so keep that in mind when booking. Our party of four (ages 17-66) had a great time. Thank you guys for an awesome trip!!

eight dolphins next to the zodiac boat Not just for tourists!

I was born and raised on Kauai and never had the opportunity to see the Nā Pali coastline like this, and I was so amazed by it all!! The ocean water was so clear, the coastline was majestic, and the caves were so cool! There were even dolphins swimming so close to the boat! The captain and crew were so knowledgeable of the island and it was interesting to hear the folklore of the island and its people! There were so many stories that even I have never heard before! They were friendly and courteous throughout the trip, always making sure we were having a good time. We had a blast and I'm so excited I was able to finally experience this wondrous of this island!

Tourists jumping into the water Eric and Dane were the best

Eric and Dane were the best guides on this small, intimate boat tour to the Nā Pali coast. They were both so informative of the area and what we were seeing along the way. Being locals, we didn't know any of the legends of the coast. They were great photographers and knew the right places to get some amazing pics for us!! Definitely the highlight of our Kauai trip!!

Chris Y.'s tour photo Nā Pali Craze

Wonderful tour. Friendly, knowledgeable crew. Well run, professional, and welcoming tour run by true Kauai locals. Saw the beautiful views of the entire Nā Pali Coast, and our experienced captain took us into secluded caves and under sacred waterfalls. Also stopped at all the best photo spots. Would definitely recommend and book again next visit. Thank you Nā Pali Craze for doing such a great job.

kmira0121 on the Na Pali Craze Tour MUST DO WHILE ON KAUAI!!!

STOP whatever you’re planning and BOOK this tour!!! When it comes to Nā Pali boating adventures there are literally DOZENS of options The jaw-dropping coastline will always be there, so what sets them apart?? THE CREW! Nothing beats a LOCAL crew. These dudes treat you like Ohana and are extremely knowledgeable, patient, and friendly! Once among the sea caves, it will be very clear that CAPTAIN DANE knows what he’s doing I’ve been on many zodiac type trips. I can honestly say I have NEVER seen anyone express so much skill, and confidence, all while keeping safety in mind. P.S- #CaptainDane is quite the dolphin whisperer!!

Light coming through a cave Kaua'i Adventure

Just took one of the best activities Kauai can offer Kamaaina's and Malahini's alike. Unbelievable!!!! Courteous local Friendly staff full of knowledge of Kauai seas & currents, myths & legends. Zodiac is the way to go! If you want to see Nā Pali up close this is the only way to do it. Picturesque. Never have I met my island Kauai as I did while on this cruise adventure. If had the chance to do it again, surely I'd go with them again. Worth every single cent. This is the reason behind "Beautiful Kauai".
