When my husband and I decided to visit Kauai for the first time, one of the first things I did was book a sunset cruise with Blue Dolphin Charters. The captain and crew were awesome. We saw some flying fish and two different types of dolphins. The sea was very rocky that day, but the captain didn't turn back, which... More

Today my partner and I set sail for the Napali coast. Prior to departure our Capt, Joe gave everyone the option as to whether we would want to reschedule FOC as the water was choppy, we chose to take the cruise and hope for the best. Boy we're we glad we decided to take the cruise, we made it all... More

So my fiance and I went on both the sunset charter and the snorkel excursion. I have to say they were both an amazing experience. We had so much fun. Got to see a humpback whale, dolphins and alot of flying fishes during our sunset cruise...and who can forget the beautiful views of the landscape, cliffside and the food?!? 😊... More

I booked the Poipu Sunset Cruise, lasting roughly 3 hours. Joe was the captain with crew Danny and Cole. I was really impressed with these guys -- they were friendly and kept the conversation light and lively. Along the way, we saw turtles, dolphin, and a humpback whale. We got first-class views of the Waimea coastline and a gorgeous sunset.... More

On our visit to Kauai we wanted to see the Na Pali coast, so we decided to do the sunset dinner cruise. The captain and crew were fantastic, and the boat was very comfortable. Be aware, though, that no matter how good the boat is ocean conditions can still make it uncomfortable for those with motion sickness. The captain took... More

We've done quite a few boat tours around the world and I would call this one about average. The crew was really good and Captain Joe was knowledgeable and funny and very personable. The vessel was well maintained and the crew made sure everyone was safe. We were with two young boys and they had a great time standing in... More

I loved traveling the Na Pali Coast with these guys, they definitely made it fun, and a few people on the boat got sick and the crew made sure they were as comfortable as possible. I loved the boat, there was a sweet spot at the most front of the boat to take solid pictures and ride the waves. At... More

Just went on my 6th boat tour with Blue Dolphin and it was terrific. We did a two hour sunset cruise and saw sea turtles, dolphin and whales! Joe, our Captain, and his crew were very patient in our hunt for sea life and it really paid off. I've always had a great time on Blue Dolphin and recommend them... More

We traveled on a Blue Dolphin Charter boat trip to the Na Pali Coast on our honeymoon. Our crew was fantastic. They were knowledgable of the area, the boat and our level of comfortability. Captain Chad, Rob and Quinn made our experience priceless. Captain Chad was personable and funny. Rob made sure we were getting all that we could out... More

The Blue Dolphin crew was amazing, Captain Chad, Rob and Quinn were kind, respectful, and created a fun environment for us to capture the beauty of Kauai. The crew also was highly trained and made us feel safe. We were... More
