We love the Ocean view and rooms at Shearwater. Bali Hai is nice .. great pools, a cool open architecture main checkin / rec building overlooking a pool and fountains and great landscaping but no direct ocean view.
A tour of the Napali coast from motor raft is an awesome experience while you are there.
I hear December is whale season and they can be seen from Shearwater.
Good to know. We were there in early June a couple years ago after major flooding closed down some of the Napali hiking trails and canoeing .. it was generally sunny most of the time we were there and they setup temporary launch docs for the Napali boat tours. But some of our extended family decided to 'hike' down to Queen's Bath (I think its closed now). There was so much mud .. it was basically like mud wrestling all the way down the steep bank and back up again. They were covered head to toe.I highly recommend taking a real close look at the average rainfall chart below especially if you will be staying in a unit with no air conditioning.
