I thought i would write this review as we struggled to find any boat company that would allow us to bring our 10 month old on a boat trip to see the Napali Coast via the Sea. It is a personal choice for parents to...More

Overall we enjoyed the trip, though we normally prefer a boat that gives passengers more room and freedom to move about the boat. This boat has several rows of benches on deck, so it's sort of like riding a school bus to the Na Pali...More

I’m so glad we found this charter! With open arms, they let our 11 month old join us on the cruise. There were numerous children also on board. Everyone had an amazing time. You’re welcome to bring your own baby/child life vest if you feel...More

We took an afternoon tour, because that's all that was available. It was quite rough, with large swells, but if you love roller coaster rides, you will love this tour in the afternoon! There were a couple of scared kids and one person who got...More

The purpose of our family adventure was to spread the ashes of a loved one. Captain Abraham provided an excellent balance of sharing his knowledge, providing levity and respect during our excursion. Arrangements were made through Makana Charters. It was easy and the company was...More

We did this tour today and it was awesome! The captain and deck hands were great. They were able to navigate the choppy waters to give us an great experience. I would highly recommend this group for the Na Pali coast tour.

IT was super easy to get into the water--they had little float crafts to make it easier for those who did not want to swim the whole time as well

Liko provides vests for kids too. We provided a tip at the end of the trip as did others but it is voluntary.
