If a visitor asks me what the #1 thing I would recommend doing in Hawaii it would be go to Kauai and take the Bali Hai Tours Napali Coast Tour.  It is hands down one of the best experiences of my life.  Not all Napali Coast Tours are the same.  First of all you want to experience the Napali Coast in a Zodiac.  A small one.  Bali Hai Tours accommodates only six passengers at a time which means you are not dealing with a dozen or two people with different likes/dislikes and swimming abilities. We had five people and the boat to ourselves so it was basically a private tour.  Ok #1 is a small Zodiac.  #2 is you must use Bali Hai Tours and Captain Jack because he departs out of Hanalei Bay which is just minutes from the dramatic coast.  Boats that begin out of Port Alan waste 90 minutes just getting to the Napali Coast.  This is a waste of time and boring.  With Bali Hai you jump in the boat and in minutes you have the dramatic Napali Coast in front of you.  #3 is only use Bali Hai and Captain Jack because he knows the coast better than anyone and he is the "go to" guy for maintenance and service for Zodiacs on Kauai.  He knows his stuff and especially the waters and currents of the Napali Coast.  This means you get a smooth ride and most of all are safe.  Joe is the man and I would not put my family in any other boat on the Napali Coast.  It is no wonder why he is sought out by movie companies when they film on Kauai.  They want the best and someone who knows his stuff and does not waste time.  The other great thing about Captain Joe is that his small boat gets you into the sea caves along the coast.  We were the "only" boat in the caves the morning we went out.  The other boats just passed by.  My Wife who is terribly afraid of riding in Zodiac's was so impressed with Joe and his maneuvering of the ocean that she said she would only ride with him if we come back again.  I agree.  The Napali Coast is spectacular and seeing it from a Zodiac is the only way to go.  Highly recommend Captain Joe if you are on Kauai.
