from Capt. Andy's Southern Star Napali Snorkel BBQ Sail
This Southern Star sailing adventure gets an early departure from Port Allen on the West shore of Kauai. As we head towards Na Pali you’ll see views of Niihau, Polihale and the ridges of Kokee. The morning departure generally means we have calmer conditions and virtually ensures an encounter with the massive pod of Hawaiian Spinner dolphins that cruise up the coast daily.

Generally, we take a nearshore route up the entire coast then sail downwind offshore so you get a variety of views. On Na Pali, you’ll see spectacular sea cliffs, numerous waterfalls, and lava tubes. Kauai is the oldest of the main Hawaiian islands, and this carved coastline is the result of nearly 8 million years of exposure to wind, waves, and rain. In addition to seagoing skills, our crew is knowledgeable in the history and legends of the ancient civilizations that once inhabited these verdant valleys.

After a relaxing and beautiful downwind sail, we’ll pull into one or our favorite remote snorkel spots. Here, we anchor and passengers can get in the water, or simply relax. After snorkeling the crew prepares a delicious lunch in our onboard kitchen, which we serve with beer and wine (only available after snorkeling). Lastly, we’ll cruise home to Port Allen.

Attire and Facilities: Our passengers enjoy large shaded cabin areas, comfortable cushioned seating, clean restrooms, and fresh water showers. Wear your swimsuits and bring a towel and sunscreen.

Snorkeling, Weather, and Destinations: Snorkel gear and instruction provided. Na Pali Coast and snorkeling are conditions permitting. Tour destination will be determined based on passenger comfort and safety.

Continental Breakfast: Assorted pastries, fruit, juice, and coffee.

BBQ Lunch: Your choice of burger, chicken burger or vegetarian burger. Cole Slaw, Baked Beans, Fresh Baked Cookies for dessert. Beer and wine available after snorkeling.

No Children under the age of 3 and women over 26 weeks pregnant allowed.

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/
