I have been on a similar trip, but it was 15 years ago, but I didn't remember that it was this much fun. We had a great time on this 4 plus hour trip up the Na Pali Coast returning at 6:30 in the evening. This is a larger catamaran than others and holds more people. But, we were able... More

We had never taken a chartered boat trip in Hawaii before and were very pleasantly surprised at how much fun this was. We took a morning cruise and couldn't have enjoyed it more! The crew, Christian, Ben, Kamaile, and Michael were all very attentive to everyone's needs and also very interesting and fun. We snorkeled in an area rich with... More

We had a great afternoon Na Pali Coast Cruise on Thursday, January 22, 2015. The weather forecast during the week indicated marginal weather. We called on Tuesday to see whether they would be going up the west side of Kauai to see the Na Pali Coast. They indicated that we might not, but that we should call by 1:30 PM... More

We went on a perfect day, very calm, captain very knowledgeable, narrated about the coast and sights the entire trip. We saw maybe 400 dolphins jumping out of the water and we saw so many whales it was almost ho hum on the return trip. Food was very good, homemade cookies and potato salad along with a sandwich bar. Boat... More

We were so lucky to see whales. Captain Chad went out of his way to ensure we saw everything we could see out there. It was great !!! We even saw a mahi mahi reeled in!

We took the morning cruise this morning (1/25/15). After about 1.5 hours, we were making our way along the Napali coast - albeit at a distance. The weather was fine; the swells were up to 10 feet. The coast was not receptive to photographing due to the mist and diffuse sun. We did make it, however. The crew and the... More

Captain Chris and his crew of Cole,Matt and Ben were awesome. I wish I could give more points for rating. Highly recommend when visiting kauai. Talk about hands on and interactive with everyone. Great job guys.

so if you are in Hawaii in the winter know that you will not be seeing the Na Pali coast! (unless of course if you go there by car and hike it) They do not tell you this until you are almost on the boat. The captain says: " I can not guarantee you will see the Na Pali coast... More

It's not Blue a Dolphin charters's fault that the weather was not cooperating for our sunset sale to the Na Pali coast but it was their fault for not stating from the get go how uncomfortable an experience it would be and for not stating how unlikely it would be that we make it there (we didn't get to Na...

Hats off to Captain Chris and his crew Joe and Michael. It's not often you see people having this much enjoyment making your trip so memorable. The four-hour sunset cruise leaves Port Allen Marina to explore some of the least seen portions of Kauai. The majestic Na Pali coast is the highlight of the cruise, but along the way you'll... More
