Captain Roy, his crew (Bobby, Soren, Dylan) and executive chef did a great job with all the passengers. They made it a point to learn all our names and spent a lot of time interacting with everyone. We were well cared for. We did the snorkelling and BBQ cruise. The food (herbed chicken or 1/3rd lb. Cheeseburger) was excellent. While it was cloudy along the Napali coast, we were able to see quite a bit. Even saw a missile launch from the naval station!

Consistently awesome adventures!!! Each and every time I’ve been on one of Captain Andy’s excursions, it has been a delight. I’ve been on both the catamarans, the Napali Snorkel and this time the Napali Cave Patrol. The adventure teams are all excellent, and today, we were lucky to have Captain Robert and Assistant Bailey as our guides. They made sure everyone was safe, comfortable and up for the adventure! This was a great trip, into the caves! We saw dolphins and sea turtles, too.

Our sunset dinner cruise with Captain Andy’s was amazing. Captain Mike, Thomas and Kiley went out of their way to make sure everyone had a wonderful time and the dinner was very good. We will definitely do this cruise again and be sure to tell all our friends about Captain Andy’s.

We took the lunch Zodiac tour, and it was absolutely an adventurer's dream! Being so close to the Na Pali coast and all of its wonders, to include snorkeling, a small hike in an ancient Hawaiian Village, a catered lunch and close enough to some of the sea cave walls to touch, was truly one of the most memorable things my family has ever experienced. The crew of our excursion: Brawnwyn, Kelsea and Captain Chase were absolutely top notch and took first class care of our group! Brawnwyn and Kelsea had our lunch set and let me tell you, it was so very delicious.....just icing on the cake on top of everything else. The crew was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the lore of the coast. Capt. Chase is a phenomenal captain and was able to maneuver the Zodiac right up to several amazing spots along the coast. He also stopped to let us take a swim in water so blue and clear you would need to see /experience it for yourself to believe it! Side family ran into Capt. Chase who was out for some ice cream with his girlfriend a couple days later....the guy remembered all of our names(4 people).....neat trick Capt Chase! Needless to say, I highly recommend Captain Andy's!
