Simply spectacular! I’ve been on the Sunset Dinner Cruise 3 times and I am never disappointed. Beautiful views, good food and drink and the crew is amazing!! Capt. Cole, Elia & Rob – you all did a fantastic job! We had a wonderful time and will see you again next year. Staff at the office are always friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend!!!!

What an incredible experience! Seeing the napali coast from the catamaran was an experience I will not forgot. We started by seeing amazing dolphins. Stopped at our snorkel spot. Snorkeled with a monk seal and turtles. Hopped on to enjoy breakfast. Then cruised the coastline. More dolphins and some awesome facts and history from Captain Chris (who was FANTASTIC). The crew was incredibly helpful, willing to take your picture, get you a drink if needed. Jake the first mate also gave us some awesome hikes to do for our remainder of our time on the island. Finished with a great lunch. An experience I won’t forget and would recommend to anyone traveling to Kauai.

Best boat tour EVER! Captain Cole, Ruby–who surprised us with a lovely Hula- and always smiling Rob were fantastic caring for the entire crew–some of whom were having a rough time with the “adventurous” waves. The rest of had a blast, waves were fun, views astounding and the food and drink abundant and great . Even before setting out we saw sea turtles, but once out of dock we saw several dolphins who raced along with us and tiny flying fish called sea robins.. SO COOL! Coming back to Kauai next year just for this trip. Mahalo!

This is an amazing boat tour. Saw dolphins and even a whale! Great food, drinks, and views. But this experience was made by the crew – Nicole and Kai. They gave my friends and me an unforgettable experience. I would recommend them the next time I go. Great at entertaining, taking photos, and keeping your drinks filled! Thanks for a great time Nicole and Kai!

We had a blast with Captain Dave and Dane on the zodiac tour with snorkeling. Dave went way up the napali coast to a great snorkel spot and he took us into a ton of great caves, giving us time to take pictures and ogle the majestic coastline. Would definitely do again, especially the zodiac rafts which allowed us to get up close and personal with nature.

We are Grandparents – in our 70’s. We were well taken care of by the crew. Even went snorkeling for the first time, coming from land locked Colorado. Would do again without hesitation. The highlight of our visit to Kauai.

Big Rob and Little Rob were so kind and helpful!! I got sick on the boat (my fault, I didn’t take my medication). The two Robs checked on me constantly, they kept bringing me water and words of encouragement!  I would go again (with medication) because of the caring staff!!

We did the morning tour of the napali coast. When they say dolphins guaranteed they mean it! The crew was super helpful and friendly and the food and drink were top notch. A big thank you to Capt. Joe for giving us all the interesting history of the various sites we visited along the way.

We went on the 7 hour tour with captain Chad and crew, it was the absolute best. All of the crew was fantastic. Each crew member came by and talked to every single person on the boat. They waited on us and made sure everyone had a great time. We have done several of these tours in different parts of the world and we can honestly say this was by far our favorite. We even got to go under a waterfall. Thank you so much Captain Chad, Jeff, Kai, and Cori,  you were all the best!!

Captain Joe and his crew did an excellent job of entertaining us while on the snorkeling cruise. He pointed out a pod of spinner dolphins and a few sea turtles. Had an exceptional sunset that evening. It was a great trip! Definitely recommend.

We did the Na Pali Sunset Dinner Cruise and even though it was very rainy and we didn’t see much of the coast, the trip was great. The staff, Capt. Roy, Nicole & Stacy worked their butts off and did an excellent job. Got to see some spinner dolphins right next to the boat! The food was delicious and the libations were plentiful. We finished off with a beautiful sunset. Top notch company and the souvenir store had very reasonable prices…

Kelly, Koa and Captain Chad took great care of us. Such a fun trip. Captain Chad told us a lot of history and stopped the  boat to show us landmarks. Kelly and Koi made sure we had plenty to drink and we had a great supper buffet. At sunset they stopped the boat for pictures and Champaign. Best boat ride!  Would do it again. Great job.

Captain Chris and the crew were very professional and friendly. Safety was paramount but they always had your interests at heart. Spectacular views, good commentary (jokes aside) and good company. The food was reasonable. Overall, a great experience.

Super friendly staff. Our captain was awesome and the crew was great too. Super nice people and they definitely do make the trip so much more enjoyable. The crew is constantly interacting with the tourists. They tell stories of the areas that you are visiting and offer to take pictures constantly. Overall a very very nice experience.
