Originally had booked for the dive trip out to Niihau but Mother Nature had other plans. Blue Dolphin called and scheduled us on the shorter trip so we were still able to dive and snorkel, then a trip up the Napali Coast. We had decent weather, saw the beach at Kalalau which I had hiked into a few years ago... More

Took the whale watch/sunset tour on February 15. The tour was awesome and one of the highlights of our trip. The Captain and crew did a fantastic job of finding whales and attending to the passengers. Very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend them for any of the tours they offer.

The captain Chad and crew Rob and Yoav were great. We seen a lot of whales and they made sure we seen the beautiful coast line. All other boats turned around but they wanted to make sure we seen everything.

Had a FANTASTIC experience on this charter. Captain Chris was phenomenal... laid back yet assertive with safety issues, fun, informative and entertaining. His crew for the morning (Jen, Nate, Geoff) were AMAZING. Seriously amazing. They were genuinely kind, caring, and were attentive to safety issues without being aggressive or "jerky" about it. The snorkeling was a bit choppy so I... More

What an amazing experience up the Napali Coast for the sunset cruise with Captain Chris and his super crew! A must do on the Garden Island! The trip was everything and more than we could have asked for: majestic cliffs, awesome whales breaching, spinner dolphins literally spinning, and an absolutely beautiful sunset, not to mention the delicious food and "...

This trip was once in a lifetime!! My BF and I were on Captain Joe's boat with Danny and Nate. They were all funny, helpful and very knowledgeable. The 5 hour trip took us along the Na'pali coast where we learned island history, saw a large school and dolphins and saw a few whales. The views were awe-inspiring and we... More

Went on their 2 hr sunset tour and had a great time. Saw lots of whales and bottle-nosed dolphins. Captain Chad and his crew were great, but could be informative about the whales and dolphins. Provided lots of snacks and drinks.

Very organized from the start, meet in the office/store and sign forms. There is a nice brewery right across the street if you want to get there early. Then you take a short walk to the boat, get a briefing, and off you go. We saw multiple whales right away, then spinner and bottle-nose dolphins. It did get a bit... More
