Great trip with Captain A'a and Ducky. Took us into caves (including one open to the sky!), and we saw dolphins, whales, and a large sea turtle..all up close. Highly recommend!

We did the boat tour that takes you along the NaPali coast and includes a stop for snorkeling. The tour was great; we saw numerous dolphins and a couple of whales. Even more impressive, when we stopped to snorkel, I accidentally dropped my sunglasses in the ocean. Our first mate was able to spot them and dive down and get... More

Very good whale watching trip. The captain was very knowledgeable. It was the only tour we could find that was specifically for whale watching.

We loved our coastline and snorkeling trip during which we were fortunate to see both whales and dolphins (bottlenose and spinner.) The crew was friendly, funny and knowledgeable. Would do it again and highly recommend.

I chose this tour after researching all the dozens and dozens of options available. I'm so happy I made this choice. My husband and I were with 3 other guests, the captain and 2 assistants. Since the group was so small, we were able to have a much more personal experience. We were able to see everything without being squished... More

We had booked a snorkeling tour on 10/17 which got cancelled due to swells- but felt it was because there wasn't a full boat-- so rebooked for an 11am trip Thursday that week-- that trip should have been rescheduled but there was a full boat; rough seas where we couldn't get near the best part of the NaPali coast and...
