Napali Coast Crusie

the wife and i are looking to book a Napali Coast crusie in May. The ultimate guidebook recommended Napali Sea Breeze Tours. The Guidebook recommended using an outfilt that left from the north shore. I was wondering if anyone had any experiece with this company? thanks!

No experience with them. But I can highly recommend Na Pali Catamaran out of Hanalei. You'll want to book well in advance and try to get on one of the morning tours when seas tend to be calmer.

We used the NaPali Catamaran which leaves from Hanalei and enjoyed them. Have not heard of the Sea Breeze outfit.

Another vote for Na Pali Catamaran. I just made reservations with them for the end of June. It'll be my third trip with them.

North Shore Charters also launches out of Anini using a 14-pax rigid hull inflatable. Have gone with Na Pali Catamaran and North Shore, greatly prefer the latter. They follow the same route and both have time for a short snorkel session at Nualolo. However, the small inflatable can easily scoot in and out of the sea caves. It is more of an exciting "rock and roll" adventure than the big cat which is sort of stodgy...purely my opinion of course! Myunscientific wild guess is, by looking at the Sea Breeze boat and the rigid hull, chances of sea sickness are higher on the Sea Breeze which will wallow in the troughs more.
