A nasty patch of roadwork near Princeville almost scuttled Cap't Andy. However we made it because they called us twice and met us as our car arrived to get us on the boat! Great service. Trip was great! Beautiful catamaran and professional crew, good food and drink. The Captain's commentary was good and the Napali Coastline memorable. Be prepared to get wet (fun!) or take weather gear if you stay up front. Can get bumpy at speed against the current (fun!). Photo ops aplenty. Dolphins and sea turtles seen. Beautiful sunset photo ops. Overall: wet and wonderful. We recommend this sunset tour. You will love it. Remember your motion meds if that is a problem for you but we had a memorable trip!! Cruise was 4.5 hours. If in Princeville area allow extra travel time. Trip date was 9-18-17.

This was a great catamaran day trip with snorkeling and lunch. They had a light breakfast on the catamaran when we boarded. The crew was fabulous and truly accommodating. The captain was a local; which means the world when taking any site seeing tour on any of the Hawaiian islands. I enjoyed learning the history of the island. We snorkeled in a nice spot with beautiful fish and turtles for an hour then we boarded the catamaran for lunch. And finally a nice relaxing ride back to the dock. This trip was from 7:30 AM until 3:00 PM. I highly recommend this company and this day trip. Very nice and clean fleet of catamarans.

We had Cap't Cory and crew. Hans was the onboard Chef. For a dinner cruises the food exceeded any expectations . The views unsurpassed, the fun and knowledge of the Cap't, was great. Cory did it local boy style. We had one of those days where everything goes right. The winds and the sea were tame that afternoon.

A water view of this amazingly beautiful coastline is a MUST. The entire Capt Andys staff from booking staff thru Captain and crew were efficient, informative and extremely friendly. Captain Bernard was especially great .The lunch was simple but yummy. My one complaint would be the poor area chosen for our snorkel portion of the trip. We pulled up close to 2 other excursions and there was very little marine life....when I asked about the apparent death of the reef, was told much of the reef in the area looked this way. So sad but not enough to ruin this lovely afternoon. Would do it again!

My wife and I did the "Raft Na Pali Day Expedition" and it was incredible. We had Captain Roy and Jeff and they were hardworking, hilarious, and made the trip quite enjoyable. The website isn't kidding when it says you should be somewhat athletic; we sat on the edge of the rafting boat and they go pretty fast! There are ropes to hold on to and we felt totally safe, but be prepared for an adventure! They stopped along the way and gave us cool facts about the coast, they let us jump off the boat and swim (was so fun), and they prepared a lovely lunch for us when we stopped on a beach. We saw a ton of dolphins, some beautiful fish, mountain goats, and huge turtles and monk seals. Be prepared with sunscreen, a tight fitting hat or visor, and a towel. No need for shoes, we all wore sandals (you go barefoot on the boat anyway) and they gave us dry bags for our phones, towels, etc. There were plenty of older people on this tour, though I didn't see any kids on the day we did it. Highly highly recommend this tour; great day trip for the price!
