Loved this crew and experience! I am not the type of person to be on a boat all day or take a tour. I typically do not like the slow pace of a tour or listening to someone point out every small rock, tree, leaf etc. That's just me. However....I wanted to see whales! I could see the tails from...

They provided a lot of interesting history, were friendly, funny, and intent on ensuring everyone had fun while being mindful of everyone's safety. The offered to take pictures and pointed out whales, dolphins, monk seals, and sea turtles. We got... More

We did the 2-hour whale watching trip. The crew was very friendly and helpful, and yes we saw some whales, and dolphins & a turtle, and they served nice drinks and desserts. But.......we saw many more from the shores on Maui every day and many folks kayaked right up to them from the beach.......so if your trip includes Maui and... More

There are several choices of Cruise Companies to choose from to savor Kauai's NaPoli Coast, we chose Blue Dolphin charters & were over the moon with our choice for two primary reasons: Staff enhanced the overall experience and the company was not trying to pack so many people onto the catamaran that you had no space. Captain Greg assisted by... More

We loved the Sunset Sail up the Napali Coast. The boat was top-notch, & the captain & crew wer excellent. Not only knowledgeable, but patient and humorous as well. For example: they gave a thorough lesson in safety before we left the dock which included how to descend the ladders FACING the boat. A group of non-English-speaking folks just didn't... More

We did the deluxe morning na Pali coast. This is a 5 plus hour tour. We snorkeled and enjoyed see the na Pali coast as you can not see it by land. We were thrilled to see many groups of spinner and bottle nose dolphins. Bonus we saw a monk seal. There were whales in the distance so we didn't... More

We sailed with Blue Dolphin in February. The seas were rough and they were willing to relocate to a different port in a calmer area. Our first tour had to be cancelled so we sailed the following day. As soon as we left the port we began seeing whales. They were popping out of the water in every direction. The... More

We took the sunset cruise with Captain Christian and crew on our recent trip to Kauai. The cruise lasts about 4 hours+ and heads up to the Napali Coast. The boat is a catamaran which handles the waves very nicely. We had strong winds which rested in big swells. Of the approximately 50 people on board about 12 were sick.... More
