We took the NaPali Coast & Ni'ihau snorkel trip today with Capt. Chris and crew. We had the best time and saw spinner & bottle nose dolphins, monk seals, sea turtles, porpoises and pilot whales in addition to everything we saw while snorkeling. The food served on board was excellent and plentiful as were the liquid refreshments. Highly recommended!

As we were checking in, the Captain made a few announcements and it was evident he was going to give us an entertaining adventure. One thing that impressed me was his attention to safety. Prior to boarding and again once we were aboard the catamaran, Captain detailed all safety features and requirements. The trip was beautiful. Saw numerous dolphins and... More

We had a great time! Captain Chad, Brad and Mike were great! We got to see parts of the coast we otherwise would not have been able to view. Food was good too.

Phenomenal tour! You get to witness the incredible forces of nature that carved out the entire coast, while simultaneously learning from the ship's crew members about the history as well as interesting facts about the region. Thank you Brad, Michael and Captain Chad for the excellent experience!

Had a great time on the sunset dinner cruise - crew was fun and helpful, food was great and the boat was spacious. Didn't feel crowded even when we were all on the deck. Would definitely recommend and even do again. Totally worth it.
