I've been on Blue Dolphin several times before for their Napali and south shore trips, and each time have taken advantage of the available scuba diving off the boat. This time I was interested in diving off the coast of Nihau, and Blue Dolphin is the only boat that goes there this time of year. When I booked the charter... More

Wow, All we can say is that the crew at Blue Dolphin know how to care for their passengers. After coming to kauai for 10 years we finally took a trip up Napali with Blue Dolphin. Every step of the way was handled so professionally and with so much fun. I come from a safety background (Paramedic,firefighter,search and rescue swiftwater... More

I went on this tour in October with my family and two kids. We opted for the student cruise, which began at 2pm and ended around 6pm. Upon boarding the ship , the crew immediately makes you feel like part of the family. They pass out drinks take pictures of you and your family if you need them to; pass... More

Yesterday, we went on the 4-hour Na Pali sunset dinner cruise with Blue Dolphin Charters. Our crew (Greg, Ben & Ryan) were great. True professionals. Not too much script but always willing to answer questions. The mai tai's and "Bob Marley's" got most everyone relaxed and in a great place. Lots of fun. Greg inched the 65-foot catamaran up to...

We did the morning snorkeling trip. Started out with snorkeling at a pretty nice spot. Saw some turtles. Then we had breakfast: eggs, croissant and fruit. The ocean got a little choppy on our way to the Napali coast and there's always a few that get sea sick. Crew was very helpful and checked regularly on them. It was nice... More

We went out on Blue Dolphin's sunset Na Pali cruise on Nov. 10th for my dad's birthday, and could not have imagined a better experience for the occasion! Capt. Chad is personable and you can't help but warm up to him immediately; the fact that he is born and raised on Kaua'i is an added bonus. In addition to information... More

We did the morning dolphin and snorkeling cruise. From the time we arrived the staff in the so we're very friendly and helpful. Once we boarded the Dolphin II, the crew and captain were very attentive and knowledgeable. The sights were beautiful and the dolphin watching was spectacular. They served very good food and the Mai Tai's were perfect. Would... More

I had heard it was pretty rough at the front of the boat but I found this was not the case. it was a bit rough over one small spot but mostly a great... More

Chris & Joe are the best hosts. Joe cooked our dinner all night long and the cookies he made were out of this world. Captain Chris took us near waterfalls, we saw 2-3 whales, several sea turtles. The information that they passed on about the history and stories were great. Overall this was a great evening - we did the... More
