We have been visiting Kauai for 15 years and our trip would not be complete without our trips out on the Northern and Southern Star. We book 4 years annually . Doesn't matter to us whether we go North or South. The crew and staff are the best and do all they can to make your trip enjoyable. Whales, spinner... More

This was spectacular! Capt Mike and his cohorts Robbie and Thomas were terrific. They helped everyone on this beautiful trip. The food was delicious and the sneaky tikis dangerous in a good way! We saw too many whales to count and the lighting on the Napali coast line was magical. The boat ride was very smooth even with big swells.... More

We took the Snorkel BBQ sail and it was the highlight of our trip to Kauai! The weather prevented us from seeing the Na Pali Coastline, but to the South we saw a bunch of whales, dolphins and turtles. The ocean and the coastline were beautiful, the marine life was awesome and the crew of Capt Kerber, Roy, Kevin &... More

We were unable to cruise the Napoli Coast due to swells but were offered to cruise the south. We had an amazing trip with great staff tending to every need. One of our group was seasick and the crew did everything they could to make her comfortable. We were able to see some beautiful coastline with informative narrative as well... More

We were slated for a Na'Pali sunset cruise, which got re-routed for awful surf conditions. We sailed the south side instead. The crew was wonderful- informative, fun, and very nice. The food was good, and we saw many whales- including a calf who breached only 10 feet from the boat! It was a great trip and very romantic as well.

We were the only boat on the water because it wasn't safe. Swells were over 20 feet. Not enjoyable when you get to smell the gasoline while sitting at the back of the boat to vomiting. Even locals were shocked we had gone out that day. The food was good but unfortunately didn't eat.

A friend recommended this catamaran cruise to us as a "must do" while on Kauai. She had done it during the summer- I was concerned about trying it in January, as the swells can be prohibitive. Sure enough, we were unable to travel along the Na Pali coast as planned because of 30' swells, but were instead offered a trip... More

Took the dinner cruise this evening on the Southern Star with Capt Tony - although we could not go north due to weather, we had a wonderful time heading south. Terrific whale watching - close and plentiful. Crew was top notch and we were well fed and cared for - clearly a trip to remember. Hans did a tremendous job... More

We did the Captain Andy's Zodiac tour of the Napali coast. We had Captain Ted and Allison. Captain Ted was amazing. The day of our tour, there were swells in the ocean. Captain Ted handled the boat incredibly and you could not even tell that there were swells, He kept the boat rather flat the entire voyage. We had the... More
