They go out in rainy, windy weather and will charge your card $195 per person if you want to cancel your trip because of the bad weather. Not cool. It would be a nice trip in sunny weather, but no one on board had much fun on my trip - which featured lots of rain and, on the way back,... More

My husband & I were staying in Princeville; so, this 40ft. catamaran left from Hanalei Bay which was great for us! We took the sunset sail and Dave was very entertaining! Bob was the Captain and took us down the Na'Pali coastline! It was beautiful sailing with stunning views! Going there was calm with nice swells and Dave gave us... More

After first booking a sunset cruise the office called to inform us that because it was only the two of us they'd be cancelling--however they offered to fit us into the regular cruise as a replacement. Are we ever glad we took them up on this. Captain Bob and his first-mate (son) Dave provided a skilled and first-hand look at... More

We took the Napali cruise on the sailing catamaran at the end of April. The seas were pretty rough, but not too bad. We saw many, many flying fish when we left the harbor. Amazing! We got down to the snorkel spot and everyone but 3 of us snorkeled. We watched the fish and a bunch of sea turtles from... More

We took the 6 hour sail and snorkel trip and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were delayed one day because of weather but were kept informed at every step along the way. It was a beautiful day and the Na Pali coast was spectacular. Captains Bob and Dave were great and the atmosphere was very laid back and relaxed. Dave kept... More

looking forward to our "Snorkel trip and N'apali Coast boat ride"…Weather was questionable that morning. We called the phone number instructed as to whether boat ride would be cancelled or not." No answer, for at least one hour we called. We figured it was cancelled,and frustrated that there was no recorded message as instructed, just to let us know. One... More

Captain Sundown and Crew cared for this seasick passenger as though she was their own family member. We have a Sterling safety record and while we do operate tours in winter, we contract with passengers to ensure they know ahead of time, the wet and wild conditions NaPali throws at us. By contract these folks agreed that all activities aboard... More

We did the full 6 hour tour with snorkel and loved it! We had plenty of opportunity to take pictures of the Nepali coast and enjoyed the commentary by David on the boat. It was nice to feel like we had free reign to go wherever we wanted on the boat. The food and snacks were delicious. We even had... More

Husband and I visited Kauai for our honeymoon and booked a trip with Captain Sundown in advance after a LOT research and we were not disappointed. We had a wonderful day and overall experience. Intimate group, beautiful views, interesting stories and historical info and head slapping whales, definitely will be one of our fondest memories and this special trip.

This is the only Na Pali Coast snorkel/sailing catamaran leaving out of Hanalei Bay. Wow! What an experience. We took the 6 hour tour which included lunch, snacks, beverages, snorkeling and the best views ever! We were on a Catamaran that limits 15-17 people. No overcrowded boat. We were assisted in any way, and given great information about what we... More

Captain Bob, David and Nicole all did a great job! The trip was amazing! The views are breath taking. David's stories and knowledge of the island was great. Snorkeling was fun and swimming with the turtles was an added bonus. The little dingy took us out to the catamaran. They provide drinks, sandwiches, cookies and fruit. If you want booze... More
