With Sea Riders we got to really experience the Napali Coast with a genuine adventure. The small maneuverable craft make it fun to explore caves and get right up close to marine animals.

Many companies choose to run their Napali Coast tours year round while we limit our trip to the summer months. We start our season when the North Swells end, and that is usually some time in May. I think May 15th is likely... More
