My husband and myself enjoyed such a wonderful evening together sailing along the Ne Pali Coast line. The boat was very comfortable and roomy. A yummy dinner and cocktails were a plus. Captain Mike and his crew were first rate. He shared with us some really interesting island history and went out of his way to make sure we saw lots of whales and dolphins. The crew made sure we were all comfortable and having a good time. It is a must do when we visit again :)

I don't think Captain Kyler was the one responsible for the fantastic weather for our cruise, but he definitely made the most of it. Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) had a wonderful time on our cruise with Kyler, Luke and Greg. The snorkeling wasn't as good as we had on Maui, but we still saw fish and a sea turtle. Then we headed up the coast. The day was sunny, the water was relatively calm, and everyone was in a great mood. The crew was awesome at spotting wildlife, and we stopped to enjoy watching spinner dolphins and whales play and jump in the ocean. The Na Pali coast is unbelievably beautiful, and because the weather was so perfect we had perfect views. Kyler was very knowledgeable about the animals and sights on the coast. The whole crew was very concerned about making sure everyone was having a great time. The refreshments were also great. Nothing fancy, but filled the tummy. My picky eater appreciated that he could make his own sandwich. It was a highlight of our trip for sure, and we would go again in a heartbeat.

Captain Roy and crew took very good care of us on our trip. They were fun, knowledgable and extremely professional. It was a great way to visit the Napali coast on Kauai. The catamaran is big and very stable. The BBQ was awesome. Thanks Chef Mark. The entire event was a great value for the money we spent.

Captain Andy's catamaran trips along the Na Pali Coast are great. The boats are spacious and comfortable and the crew is extremely friendly and very helpful. They watch out for everyone's safety and offer good information. The food is so-so, but then you are not taking this trip for the food! We went during the peak of the whale season and were a bit disappointed that we saw whales only twice. I have done this trip before, and there were lots of whales then. We saw several big dolphin pods, both Hawaiian spinner dolphins and also bottle nose dolphins. Sadly we saw only one sea turtle. The snorkeling was well managed by the crew and happened in a safe area/
