Totally enjoyed the entire time. Outstanding scenery, beautiful and comfortable boat, and great guide. Danny was knowledgeable, friendly, and just an all around nice guy. His help for my apprehension with snorkeling was much appreciated! Excellent day!

Beautiful boat, went in (and for one through!) several awe-inspiring caves. Skilled and knowledgeable captain with just the right level of commentary. Saw tons of dolphins and quite a few turtles. Be prepared for a bouncy, fun ride!!

We chose to go with the Na Pali Experience as they use smaller boats and we figured it would be a little more personal without the large group. We were definitely not disappointed. We had Drew as our guide and he did an awesome job....More

We did the morning magic! Saw lots of dolphins, sea caves, waterfall and enjoyed snorkeling. Our guide Daniel was very professional, informative and made us feel comfortable.

I booked this tour for my mom and I and my 6 year old daughter. I am thinking about cancelling for my daughter. She has never swam in the ocean and never snorkeled and we are all prone to seasickness. My mom and I can take bonine but I don't want to give my daughter something thats going to make her super drowsy. I know I can try sea bands but if they don't work she will be super miserable. I'm also a little worried about her snorkeling in the ocean even though I will be right with her. How do kids generally do on this tour? Thanks :)
