We did this tour on Oct 30. We had the perfect day weatherwise and our catain, Gen and his crew, Branson and Koma were terrific. Glen made sure that safety issues were addressed and reinforced and was diligent in attending to them throughout our voyage. This pwrticular vessel was designed specifically for the tours that it does. It is somewhat smaller than other catamarans and has two powerful 450 engines that allow it to navigte the large sea swells on the north coast. The smaller size and power allows the captain to sail inside the reef and closer to shore where larger boats can''t go. We were dazzled by the beauty of ghe cliffs with the colours and the shadows of the afternoon sun. There were drinks and snacks available onboard immediately and the crew made sure everyone had what the wanted and needed brining things to us as it was difficult to walk around holding drinks and plates wgile needing to hold on. Hey even very caringly and discretely looked after a gentleman who was quite seasick. Later were were served pulled pork and tuna buns with salad fresh veggies, fresh fruit and cookies. All very yummy. We stayed out on the water until just after the beautiful sunset when we then returned to dock. We were very impressed with this tour, our Captain and his crew, the scenery, the commentary, the dolphins that were playing around the boat, and the overall experience. We were also fortunate to have the perfect weather day, which, of couse is never guaranteed. This tour is worth every penny. Thank you Glen, Branson, and Koma. You helped to make this day one we will always remember.

This tour is amazing, the views are spectacular! Dinner was rolls with either Tuna or Pork. I eat neither and there wasnt enough rolls for everybody but it doesnt degrade the stars, worth doing this tour!!

This sunset tour was amazing! The crew was fun and attentive, Bronson and Jake did an awesome job catering to our groups every need. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone wanting to see the Na Pali coast up close and who are staying on the south side of the island.

Excellent boat, captain and crew. The boat was only 2/3 full - so it didn't feel at all crowded. The coast was breathtaking. Food was simple and very good. Definitely worth it and would highly recommend!
