Makana Charters is a native Hawaiian family owned business that takes pride in providing the best possible experience for visitors to Kauai. For over 20 years we have been offering tours of the Na Pali coast on custom-built touring catamarans that were designed to provide the ultimate touring experience.

The best NaPali tour for photographers

If the outstanding natural scenery is what brought you to Kauai, make sure you are on the right type of vessel that will facilitate the very best photography and video art creation.

Makana Charters offers the Na Pali Kai III Afternoon Tour as the very best in boat tours to get the right shot of the beautiful Na Pali Coast due to the dramatic afternoon light. Capturing those majestic spires of the Na Pali Coast through your DSLR lens requires planning, preparation, the right equipment AND the right boat.

On many boat tours space might be too small or keep you in one seat.  On these smaller crafts the salt spray can be unavoidable, which will get all over your expensive gear.
