  • Ted M on TripAdvisor

    Great tour of Na Pali coast with Makana Charters

    My family and I had the opportunity to tour and snorkel the Na Pali coast with Makana Charters. The sea was a bit rough on the way out, but my kids loved that part the most. The crew captain Rob, Dave and Austin were a wealth of knowledge and told us many of the stories of the coast.

  • Hoel H on TripAdvisor

    Fantastic tour and awesome crew

    Thank you Capatain Mike and sensational first mate Darryl, for providing our family of 7, including our almost 4 year old an amazing experience. Expert sea life spotting; spinner Dolphins, turtles, rays, and even a seal. The snorkelling was fun. The scenery and ability to access sea caves was amazing.
