"Great Time!"
January 2019
We took the raft for whale watching. It's a Navy Seal raft so you go fast and hold on tight. You might be a little sore the next day but the ride and view was worth the trip even if you don't see whales. My 10 year old loved the ride itself.

You will get wet. Our ponchos were futile. Sunglasses and sunscreen recommended.

We saw lots of spray and when we didn't think we'd see much, a whale jumped right in front of us (101 feet away)! Crew was knowledgeable, answering our questions and concerned about our safety and comfort with seasickness remedies on the ready.

Will book again if ever return to this area.

"Amazing & Memorable Snorkel/Tour of the Napali Coast"

My wife and I booked this tour hoping for great weather and we were rewarded! The tour and snorkel was great, but what made this a memorable trip was the crew. Captain Kaua'i and crew were amazing. Their knowledge and service was impeccable and amongst the best I've seen (we make it a point to tour/snorkel everywhere we go around the world). Perfect balance of safety/experience. Thank you crew and highly recommend Kauai Sea Tours!

"The BEST tour we’ve done on Kauai! "

We had the most amazing time with Sean as our captain and CJ as our crew! They definitely made our day, they’re both so knowledgeable. The only thing that could’ve been improved on would be a seat for the captain...😂 Not only were we able to go into every seacave and see the entire Na Pali coast (which is GORGEOUS) but we had an AMAZING snorkel. We saw turtles, Monk Seals, Whales, and all kinds of fish throughout the day. The boat ride was so much fun! Tip: be sure to take some gravol or anti-nausea if you get even the slightest bit motion sickness BEFORE you get on the boat.

We had a great time venturing up to the Napali Coast with Kauai Sea Tours. The boat was big and clean, the food was fine. The only thing I wish they had more of was information about the island, history, culture, etc. But the crew was super friendly and wonderful. We saw whales, spinner dolphins, and stopped for a snorkel where the whales could be heard underwater. Great trp!

Our booking was originally for the Napoli Coast catamaran dinner cruise, however there were high winds and our captain “Kaua’i with a name so long I can’t spell it!) rerouted us along the south coast and partially up the southeast side of Kaua’i. We were not disappointed with this detour! From the time we left the harbour we saw dolphins swimming and jumping near the boat and humpback whale activities in the distance. It was amazing! The views along the south shores of the island are lovely. Kaua’i, the captain gave lots of local information as we cruised. Matthew, Cameron and Rico the 3 crew members were always around to answer questions, serve drinks, etc. The snack and dinner were delicious and there was an assortment of drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic for everyone. It was a memorable afternoon. Thanks.

Showed up at 645 am on 2/9, captain Greg at 715 am tells us we wont be going up to Napali Coast bc of bad weather. Gave us the option to reschedule or cancel. We were told the south part of the island is also gorgeous and has good snorkeling. That was a lie! The snorkeling was the worst, there was nothing to see. The southern coast line is nothing close to gorgeous. We want our money back! If your tour cant go to napali, cancel or rebook. The crew on the lucky lady was very nice. We were bored for 5 hours bc there was nothing to see or do until we saw whales in the distance and dolphins. But thats not what we paid $165 per person for.
