Captain Don and mates Red and Tapu helped make this a great day on the water! Taking a smaller boat so we could go into the caves was a great decision. Be sure to ask if your tour can do this. A definite must for a north napali trip!

Did the sunset tour because we were nervous about weather- leaves at 445ish and you're back at 645-7ish. SO FUN! The captains were really knowledgable & entertaining. The boat was small enough to go into a couple sea caves which was really cool! We saw goats & a turtle! We both had no problem with the waves- it was really... More

It is hard to say enough about this tour...it was exceptionally good. The captain (Don) and first mate (Red) were very attentive and safety conscious, and knew so much about the many beautiful caves and hiking trails, etc., along the gorgeous Na Pali Coast. This was one of the best things we did. Go online to book for $25 off.... More

This was the highlight of our week in Hawaii! Captain Don and Red were fantastic guides. Red was very knowledgeable and even played the ukulele for us! We saw Dolphins and Whales and the Na Pali coast was beautiful. This tour is a must.

We had an amazing time on the UFO. Tyler and Red were our guides and they did an amazing job. Super informative about the coast and Kauai's history. And very fun! I've done a Coast tour with another company years before and this tour was by far better. Leaving from Hanalei on the north shore is much better than leaving... More

Tyler and Red were great captains and we had a super nice time cruising along the coast and into a few caves. If you tend to get motion sick take a Dramamine when you check in to the office pre-tour. Dress to get wet the UFO boat is smaller and closer to the water than you might expect. We saw... More

All was very good. We spotted a whale on the way back but we rather disappointed that the Cpt.. seemed keener on getting home than pursuing this opportunity.

We highly recommend this tour. We had such a fantastic day! Tyler and Red were awesome guides and had wonderful stories and Red serenaded us with his ukelele. The boat only seats 13, this is great as we have been on snorkeling tours that had too many people. One of the best tours. Thanks to all of your staff!!!

We set out on an early morning trip with Red and Captain Tyler aboard the U.F.O. The boat was awesome and the duo leading the trip were incredible fun, funny and helpful. We saw sea turtles and the local smaller variety of dolphin amidst perfectly blue seas. The snorkel spot a blast and the provided lunch was tasty. We had... More
