This trip was so special. We saw whales, dolphins (spinner and bottlenose), a hammerhead shark, many birds.. and of course, the BEAUTIFUL Napali Coast. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to snorkel, but I trust the guides to know when it is safe/ worth it. Still highly recommend. Head's up though - many of my fellow passengers... More

I was really looking forward to this boat ride to see the Napali Coast. I had done a lot of research and liked this company for the price, as well as it's location (in Waimea and close to the Napali Coast). The boat was larger and my understanding was that this made for better/smoother travel on the ocean. There were... More

We had been booked to enjoy this trip on Valentine's Day but due to inclement weather this had to be cancelled. We were super impressed that a few days before our scheduled trip, the company called us to re-schedule as they had seen the weather forecast - saved us having to call them and try to rebook it ourselves! We... More

The tour was phenomenal. We cruised the entirety of the Na Pali coast and saw countless whales, dolphins, and sea birds. The best part was the crew who were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and friendly. They accommodated to the desires of the guests and were probably more excited to see multiple breaching humpbacks than most of the guests were. They truly embodied... More

Liko's Cruise is the best way to enjoy your time if you want to see the fantastic Na Pali coast, whales and dolphins. What an amazing day and the highlight of our trip to Kauai.

This cruise is SO much fun! Liko has an unusual catamaran. It is more narrow than most and all of the seats face forward. What a great thing when wanting to see all of the sights! The captain and crew were delightful and informative. We saw the gorgeous NaPali coastline, whales, dolphins, sea turtles and even a hammerhead shark. The... More

This was a great tour. Rob and Chris and crew did a great job taking a boat full of people out to sea to see everything we could see. We quickly found multiple humpback whales and then came upon several pods of spinner and bottle nose dolphins. The crew was very knowledgeable of these animals and of the sea birds... More

First off, the Napali coast is breathtaking in its beauty & large-scale. Seeing the Kalalau Valley from the opposite end of the Kalalau Lookout is amazing, one of many amazing sights. There's sea caves and waterfalls galore, and the water is an unbelievable teal blue. Second, the ocean is teeming with marine wildlife: we saw multiple whales, including a breech... More

We took the Na Pali Coast cruise. We got to hear all the details and history. We went up close to sea caves and some volunteers got wet by waterfalls near caves. Staff was very knowledgeable. We took our two young daughters who had a great time. We got to see a ton of whales and 100+ bottle nosed dolphins.... More

Captain took us out in spotty weather and really worked hard to make this a fun trip for everybody. Tough to do as he had a large, demanding and rude group trying their best to dominate the trip (actually one woman ringleader). He made sure ALL of us had fun and got to enjoy the amazing sites and amenities on... More
