Na Pali Coast Tour aboard Any Kine Charters - September 7, 2015
On Labor day we decided to jump aboard Any Kine Charters to tour around the Na Pali Coast of Kaua'i. If you ever get the chance to visit this island this is a MUST!
We jumped on and headed out about 7:30am. We wasn't nervous at all riding with Captain Justin Tabalno, he is Kaua'i born and raised, a Water Safety Officer of the county of Kaua'i and has years of charter experience under his belt. He made us feel right at home.
On the way out we stopped to enjoy the presence of some spinner dolphins. Had many of them swimming around and you could se newly born dolphins swimming next to their mothers.
& they were showing off!
It was such a nice clear day. If you look closely you can see the Forbidden Island, Niihau.
Justin owns a brand new 27 Riddle boat that was custom built for chartering and is powered by twin Yamaha 150 that equal about 300 horsepower. It was a very comfortable ride.
We passed Polihale Beach.
The sea cliffs were so amazing.
As we passed by the valleys, Justin would tell us the stories of the Hawaiians who lived in the Valleys and how they lived off the land.
With all the rain there were many waterfalls along the cliffs.
There were many caves along the coast as well.
Next thing you know Justin takes us right in this cave!
I was pretty nervous inside this cave cause how the waves were but when its calm here you can actually swim!
We continued down the coast, we passed Honopu Beach.
Another cave we passed had a waterfall pouring right through.
We passed by many kayakers who braved the ocean to get over to the Na Pali coast. Also we seen a number of hikers on the trail trekking on the 12 mile hike in.
Such an awesome trip out with a great captain.
Then we went fishing!
All in all it was such a great experience seeing all the beauty of the Na Pali Coastline. We definitely would do this again next time we are in Kaua'i and we highly recommend your trip out to be with Any Kine Charters. All information below:
