We had a great time! The weather held out and the crew, Ian, Emily, and Camp cowboy were great. Everything was up to what we hoped for!
Absolutely magnificent, spectacular scenery...the crew were so kind and knowledgeable..highly recommend..wish I was there now!!
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!
Water was rough and we were a little queasy. However, the crew was very attentive and did all they could to make the trip enjoyable. Scenery was unbelievable.
Best tour I've ever taken!! The Captain and his crew were exceptional!!
Great cruise worth the cost for the trip! Will do it a gain!
Beautiful tour along the Na Pali coast! Staff was very friendly! Please state in your tour description that one has to be barefoot on the boat so I would have brought water shoes to wear! I don't like to be barefoot!
Everything else is perfect!
The Na Pali coast is definitely a must see for Kauai. The captain and two crewmen made the trip even more enjoyable. The meal was basic but it consisted of appetizers, main dinner entree with sides, a small dessert, and a glass of champagne as a nightcap.
I think if we had to pick one we would have gone with the helicopter tour, but the boat tour did offer a few things that weren't a part of a helicopter tour. We saw a lot of marine life dolphins, manta ray, sea turtles, and seals and we were able to get up underneath some of the cliffs. If you get seasick you might want to be a little wary as 3.5 hours on the ocean wreaked havoc with a few of the people on the boat.
Great!!! views we awesome and so was the crew. Little hint you will get wet and don't wear a dress very windy.
We very much liked this cruise -- the other reviews clued us in to the cruise conditions -- that is a bumpy ride which we were well prepared for. Most people were -- some might have got a bit wetter than they expected but were happy nonetheless. I think only one patron got seasick -- but recovered later in the cruise.
The views were fantastic and the crew was very professional.
The pre-cruise briefing was just about the best I have heard -- kudos to the captain for that.
Food was OK -- but well within expectations.
Took my family of 5. All had a great time. Took Dramamine and no one had any problems. Crew was friendly and informative.
This was a great cruise to the north side of the island od Kauai. Our captain took us up close to the great cliffs. The view is absolutely stunning. The crew was very attentive and helpful.
Excellent captain and crew! They really served us with kindness, dirnks, and food with personable smiles on the very well-kept catamaran, HOLO HOLO. The views are simply amazing!
Had a wonderful time! The crew was very friendly and helpful. The scenery is breath taking and was very delighted to see the whales! Was able to sit in the front of the boat and enjoy the wonderful sights! Unfortunately, the good weather did not last long but you can't control Mother Nature. I would recommend taking motion sickness medicine as the weather and waves can change quickly.
Beautiful scenery with a great crew. Waves were big which resulted in a few people getting seasick. Plenty of food and drink. We saw some spinner dolphins and one turtle. Sunset was cloud free and beautiful. Well worth the money. Dress casual and enjoy yourself!!
I am so glad we booked this cruise after reading previous reviews about other cheaper ones. There is no doubt that you should pay the extra 30 bucks and truly enjoy the journey you set out on with this crew. The beer and wine selections were great, however the MaiTais were the sweet premixed kind.
I would highly recommend this tour. The staff was amazing and the food exceeded our expectations. All four of us loved it.
Our crew provided a very nice experience, and we got a full tour of the entire Na Pali coast which apparently isn't always possible due to conditions. The coast itself is a can't-miss. I was a bit shocked that the boat navigated under a waterfall to give some guests a shower they were thrilled, but I guess the rocks weren't that much of a hazard? In all, the best tour experience I've had.
We LOVED this cruise from the moment it started. We had a fantastic crew - Captain Glenn, Jake, and Bronson. They were so friendly and informative, and made sure we saw everything there was to see, including a magnificent sunset. We went 'under' a waterfall, saw a Hawaiian Harbor seal, and had dolphins swimming and swimming around the boat. Everything was super-clean and all safety procedures explained clearly and thoroughly. Food was delicious, and so were the Mai Tais! I will recommend this to anyone going to Kauai. It was breathtaking and we had spectacular weather, too!
Loved the trip.. Crew was greet, extremely nice. Beautiful view of the Na Pali coast. Food and drinks were very good. Would highly recommend them. My only concern, I emailed a question to the site 3-4 days prior to our trip. Never had a response.
