My dad and I went on the catamaran trip recently and had a awesome time. Captain Larry runs a very efficient tour. The deck hands, Nick and Spencer, were knowledgeable of the coast line and everyone was friendly. The provided lunch was great and the snorkeling was excellent. We even saw whales and swam with turtles. We could not have... More

Overall a fantastic sail, snorkel, and motor along the Na Pali. We chartered the whole boat for our group of 13, 7 kids ages 6 through 12 and 6 adults. Captain Larry and Nick handled the boat knowledgeably down wind along the coast in 20 knot winds and following swells. We even reeled in 4 fish. At the half way... More

We loved our day with Captain Larry, Nick and Spence on the Na Pali Coast. Leaving from Hanalei Harbor and sailing up the coast was amazing. We saw whales, a seal, turtles and dolphins. A swim in a protected bay was fun. Lunch was delicious and plentiful. Cruising back close to the Na Pali Coast was amazing and allowed for... More

Great tour of Napali coast! Kids loved riding the waves on the ride home and getting splashed. Saw sea turtles and dolphins. On the needs improvement side, paying cash only was painful since we had a family of four and had to hit ATM's multiple times.

Spectacular trip on a great boat with great people. My wife and I just returned from our 6 hr sail with Captain Larry (Bob's son and now captain of the boat) and his new hand Nick. We have taken snorkel trips in the Keys, the Caribbean, Central America, and in other locations in the Hawaiian Islands in the past. This... More

We booked with Captain Sundown a few weeks in advance of our trip to Kauai. 2 days before we arrived, we received a call canceling our trip, saying that because of the swells they would not be taking trips until the following week. Blue Dolphin was recommended to us and we had a wonderful excursion during the week. We saw... More

This was the highlight of our Kauai vacation. We were staying in a House Of Dreams Kauai property and Kimmy from Kauai Ventures suggested this was the one adventure not to miss. So off the 10 of us went on what was a most memorable day. The weather was perfect, the seas were calm and the views were incredible. The... More

Family run sailing business offers longer excursion for just a few dollars more. Although the weather was not very cooperative on the ride out along the Na Pali coast (grey skies with intermittent drizzling rain), the voyage back was outstanding. To make up for the less than impressive beginning of the trip (no fault of the captain or NIck, his... More

Most Na'Pali cruises are based out of Port Allen on the south end of the island. Captain Sundown is based in Hanalei bay. Convient to North shore. You don't have to drive all that way to get to and from the embarkation point. No wind in the morning so no sailing. He only puts the sails out for the outbound... More
