My wife and I had a great experience on the sunset cruise. Captain Chad was very informative and cordial as was the rest of the cruise. We saw whales, dolphins, Na Pali cliffs and finished the cruise with a nice sunset. One of the better excursions we have been on and highly recommend. Great value for the cost. 😊

The crew, the experience,views were all very good. Paid for a sunset dinner cruise, they ran out of some food before everyone got to eat. Brought it to their attention, they never offered any type of restitution, or partial refund. I received a SORRY

Views were great! Captain was clearly a local, know a lot of great information. We saw a ripper sunset and the crew were so handy - taking photos, getting you drinks, snake etc! Dinner meal for the Sunset cruise wasn't anything special. Wouldn't write home about it. We saw whales though which was a bonus!!

They were very knowledgeable about the behavior of the animals and the beautiful landscaping around us. Danny and Josh took pictures for people and even joined in the pictures when asked. I would...

Can't say enough wonderful things about the crews this company employs. Top notch, professional, kind, friendly. We took their Niihau snorkeling adventure. The NaPali Coast part of the trip was incredible - saw spinner dolphins right off the boat and loads of whales. Going over to Niihau started to get some folks a little nauseous. We stopped between Niihau and... More

Snorkeling was awesome! We saw green sea turtles. I had one swim right up to me! He just seemed to look right at me, just inches away! I also saw a small octopus, sea cucumber, many variety of fish and coral. My husband also had a seal swim by him while snorkeling. The NaPali Coast is beautiful and this cruise... More

Company was very organized and crew was very friendly and helpful, and I felt safe and comfortable on board. We saw lots of dolphins close up and whales. Coast is beautiful, and definitely recommend a boat tour while you are visiting Kauai. Food onboard was basic and not up to what we had expected (cinnamon buns and fruit for breakfast)... More
