Great sailing and snorkeling tour. We did the morning tour. Crew was friendly and professional. Captain Roy did a good job of explaining what we were passing and what to expect for the tour. The weather cooperated and we were able to have about an hour to snorkel. The boat was clean and well maintained as was the snorkel equipment. Recommend taking Bonnie or Dramamine before departing as there was lots of wind and swells on the way back.

I live here on Kauai, and whenever we have family visit we choose Blue Dolphin. They are safe, informative and "dolphinitely" funny! The music they play and the stories/jokes they tell really add to the experience. There are different stages to the tour: motoring up the Na Pali and learning about the place names, then snorkeling, perhaps some more motoring (with lots of splashing) and history, then the captain turns around, puts out the sail, opens lunch and the bar and you have a fantastic trip back where everyone is relaxed, lost in the music and taking in the incomparable scenery. It's a total unplugging from whatever it is you do day to day. A note on not getting seasick: stay as cool as you can and keep the salt spray on you. If you are cold early in the morning don't put a jacket on. Stay as cold as you can for as long as possible. You will be rewarded. The best place for this is on the round bench up front - especially when the waves start to drench those seated there. Once the bar opens on the way back, sip on beer. You will feel just fine. Don't go down below if you feel unwell - it will get worse. Stay out in the breeze and the spray.

We had a great experience with captain Joe, J Sea and Collin. Captain Joe gave great commentary and description of all that there was to see… j Sea took extra special care of us, even when my 5 year old got scared of the waves. The food was great. We saw a shark and dolphins! And the coast was spectacular. Highly recommend!

We did the sunset Napoli boat cruise with dinner. We had an amazing time! The crew went out of there way to make sure everyone was having fun. Nia, Evan, and Matt were our crew members and I’d highly recommend requesting them. They even stopped the boat so we could get up close and see dolphins off the shore. The food was very good and drinks even better! Experience was 10/10 and the highlight of our trip. We will be back!

Best crew ever! Stacey and Naya made us feel like family. They were so friendly, attentive, caring, helpful, and expert in everything they did. And they did everything. Captain Evan was an excellent tour guide as well as pilot. He knew everything about the cliffs, canyons, and waterfalls. Plus he attracted dolphins to ride our bow wave. We loved seeing Waimea Canyon from the ocean side.
