Liko Kauai & Makana Charters ★—Born and raised on Kauai, in a Native Hawaiian family with roots on Niihau, Captain Liko Hookano offers more than just typical cruises; instead, they’re a 5-hour combina-tion Napali Coast tour/snorkel/cultural history class/seasonal whale-watching extravaganza with lunch. Choose from the 49-foot Na Pali Kai III power catamaran, limited to 32 passengers and narrow enough to go in the sea caves normally only visited by inflatable craft, or the similarly capable 32-foot Makana, limited to 12 passengers. The tours cost $139 for adults (pregnant women not allowed) and $95 for children 4 to 12. (A charter version on a 14-passenger inflatable raft is available for the same price.)
