We did the Na Pali Sunset & Dinner Coastal Cruise. This was one of the biggest highlights of our island hopping holiday, truly breath-taking. The wife & I consider that a holiday is never complete without a nautical adventure & this was definitely in that category. We can see why the Na Pali coast is considered the most dramatic in...

Captain Chris and his crew were fun and attentive. The trip was very professional. We saw the promised dolphins and good and interesting information on the sights. The food was good and exceeded our expectations. Craft beer a good beverage option. MaiTais not the best we had on the island. The snorkeling was better off the south and north shore... More

My girlfriend recommended Blue Dolphin catamaran tours to us and now we will recommend it to everyone too. What a great time we had! The crew (Greg, Ryan and Ben) were so friendly and accommodating. We got to see the cliffs up close as well as dolphins, turtles and flying fish. The food was good too.

Trying to choose a company to go with for a Na Pali Coast snorkel trip was difficult. All the reviews were similar for each company. In the end, I choose Blue Dolphin Charters. I am so happy I did! Once on the boat, I realized we had used this company before for a Whale Watching excursion in February about 8... More

My girlfriends and I spent 6 hours on an amazing boat tour up the NaPali coastline. The staff was fun, helpful, and informative. They made the whole trip! The scenery was breathtaking and the snorkeling was a lot of fun. They even fed us! I highly recommend it!

I've done this particular trip a few times and have always enjoyed it no matter which company, but this was perfect. The boat was great (not overcrowded at all), the crew were adults (as in, not college kids) who were really nice but also very professional, the dinner was delicious, and the whole vibe was just what we were looking...

BDC was the most enjoyable boat tour of any kind I have had the pleasure to ride. Great view, fun ride, and awesome food. But the best part were the staff. Heather and Danny were great guides, very relatable and knowledgable about the island and its history. They had a perfect balance of fun and safety, allowing the youth to... More

Wow! If I could give this place 6 stars I would. The crew was fantastic! Ben, Shane, and our captain Greg were great! The dinner cruise totally exceeded my expectations. Greg really knew how to handle his ship, he took us sooo close to the shoreline, it was amazing. They knew so much about the napali coast, I could not... More

I just got off of Blue Dolphins afternoon snorkel and Na Pali coast trip taken today.. I cannot put into words how incredible this company was!

We had fairly calm seas from other peoples description and nobody got... More

We took the Blue Dolphin morning tour to visit the Na Pali coast. The Crew was very nice as others mentioned and the boat is not crowded so everybody can walk around easily. They do promise Dolphins for every morning tours and yes they were right on this one, that was maybe the best part of the trip, al least... More
