We had a great trip today on the catamaran style boat heading out to the Nepali Coast. Captain Christian and crew were awesome, very attentive during the trip. We were lucky enough to see a large group of Dolphins, a sea turtle and a lot of fish. Would definitely use this company again. When we got back to our car... More

Wonderful tour of the Napali Coast. The crew were everywhere serving drinks and pointing out various landmarks. We spotted dolphins and rays, each time the captain either drew us closer for a view or complete turned us around to see the wildlife. The sunset co-operated and was beautiful. The on-board luau was actually better that most of the food we... More

My family of 5 took a sunset dinner cruise with Blue Dolphin. Captain Chad and Michael and Ryan were GREAT!! Captain Chad is a native Resident of Kauai and embodies the spirit of Aloha. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his home showed through the entire cruise. (I would suggest requesting his cruise) Michael and Ryan were also great, they were... More

We saw many dolphins and turtles on our trip. We never did sail, but we did get under waterfalls. The crew was friendly. Breakfast was not served till the trip was well underway. Lunch was a sandwich bar. It took a long time for everyone to get through the line so some people did not get to eat till the... More

My husband and I signed up for the sail/snorkel to Niihau and sail Na Pali coast. I'll start off by saying there is no sailing involved. The boat is more like a ferry boat which motors to the island. So that part was pretty misleading. Also, they tout providing breakfast, but they don't serve it until you are well into... More

We did the Napali/Niihau snorkel/scuba tour. I have to admit that the boat ride is long (especially with little kids). However- our family loved it! Some of our family snorkeled, while others tried the scuba. My middle son had an unsuccessful attempt with the scuba, but everyone else loved it. My youngest got seasick on the way back to the...

This cruise leaves out of Port Allen in Kauai and takes you along the Na Pali Coast. The trip includes drinks and an amazing dinner. Captain Chad and his crew took really great care of us. They took pictures for us, talked with us as if we were friends, not tourists, and gave a rich history of the Na Pali... More

I am just getting around to writing this review after a trip in December. Our family of five took the evening whale watching cruise. We saw several whale tails and a school of dolphins. While we would all have liked to see whales breaching, this is not the norm. Just the thrill of searching for the whales and then seeing... More

Blue Dolphin provided us with a lovely set of memories touring the Na Pali coast by sea. The sights were breath-taking. The trip was a blast. The staff was great. Worth every penny!
