We loved this cruise! What made it so memorable was our Captain and crew. Captain Danny, Safety Officer Sullivan and Whitney were so kind, funny and passionate about what they do, you could not help but enjoy yourself! The cruise itself was very enjoyable, but we were very lucky. The winds were calm and seas were not rough. That said, there were still several passengers that did get sea sick, so please, if you have any chance of getting sea sick, take medication prior to boarding!! I can't imagine a cruise with normal winds and seas!! We were so very fortunate to see several whale sightings and dolphins! This was a highlight for us. The scenery of the Na Pali Coast is gorgeous but it is sad that the waterfalls are now extinct due to the all the previous diversions for sugar plantations. One can only imagine how gorgeous it used to be! All and all, this is one cruise not to be missed!
This dinner cruise was terrific. Beautiful scenery, saw some whales and turtles. The crew were fantastic. They showed every precaution to make the trip safe for us. My Grandaughter got seasick and they were most attentive and helpful. The captain provided us with history of the area and interesting stories. I highly recommend this tour.
On this trip you can see jaw-dropping views of Napali Coast. You can take pictures of some of the most amazing places on Earth. The captain is really experienced and he took the boat so close to the shore we could take showers in the waterfalls! We saw spinner dolphins up close in crystal clear waters and we saw manta ray!
The boat is really steady but some people experienced severe sea sickness. Please do yourself a favor, and if not sure, stock up on Dramamine. Make sure to hydrate and sit or stand at the back of the boat, observing the horizon. You can prevent onset of the sickness that way. I know I did.
Logistics: you arrive to the office which is close to the pier. Look for Blue Dolphin Charters which is the last office farther from the shore. Check in at the desk and then wait in the lobby for captain to arrive and take you to the ship. Slippers cannot be taken on board so wear something that can be secured on your feet, like flats or sandals.
My husband and I went on the Romantic Dinner Cruise and it was just breathtaking!!!! We were on our honeymoon April 2017 in Kauai and did a lot of activities while there. I must say that the dinner cruise was my favorite. Honestly the most for your buck too. The captain and his crew were incredible too. They always had a smile on their face and extremely helpful. The captain also would give us history of Kauai when we were looking at different parts of the island. Like Jurassic Park was filmed there!!!!! Very cool!!!!!! I couldn't have spent a more perfect last day in Kauai with my hubby. We even saw a whale and her baby!!!!!!! I could go on and on about the scenery and the crew. It is absolutely a must do while in Kauai!!!!!!! The captain, crew and scenery was a complete package of what felt like a piece of heaven!!!!!! We can't wait to go back and will absolutely be booking another dinner cruise again!!!!!!!!
During our 10 day vacation to Kauai, the Sunset Dinner Cruise was our favorite afternoon/evening. The captain and his crew were outstanding. They were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. The captain went above and beyond our expectations to provide us the best views of the beautiful Na Pail Coast. His love for his home was very apparent. We loved it.
very nice cruise. The crew was great, the view was wonderful had a great time.
This tour was amazing!!! the Napali coast is a must-see if you are visiting Hawaii Kauai and this specifica tous has been both romantic and funny. I strongly recommend it not only because of the landscape but also for the fantastic captain and crew: kind, polite, funny, professional....enjoy it!!!!
This is a wonderful adventure! The scenery and narrated tour was outstanding! Blue Dolphin captain Dave and his crew were very welcoming, helped you to relax, knowledgable, funny/entertaining, and couldn't do enough always asking if you needed anything, happy to take pictures of you using your camera, stopped the boat to take in the views. We saw dolphins, rainbows and sea turtles! Buffet dinner was good. The boat had a lot of seating on the top deck stable more than other catamarans we saw on other cruises at the same dock. Definitely worth the money I highly recommend this trip for making wonderful memories!!!
The Crew members are very friendly and make the trip fun! Na Pali Coast is Absolutely Beautiful!
Toasting at Sunset is Very Romantic! And the Dolphins following us and putting on a show was just the icing on the cake. When we first spotted the dolphins we told the captain and he turned around to follow them so everyone aboard can see them. This is a crew that wants to make sure you enjoy the trip! The Blue Dolphin Charter is highly recommended.
Great tour up the Na Pali Coast! Captain Christian, 1st Mate Michael, and 2nd Mate Rob were great at highlighting interesting points along the coast and keeping it fun while taking care of the guests who couldn't find their sea legs. Dinner was tasty and they had a special request vegetarian meal waiting on the side for my wife.
We really enjoyed our Sunset Cruise. The Captain was funny and very informative. Enjoyed the scenery and saw a Green Sea Turtle. The food was very tasty. The pulled pork with cabbage was fantastic! Enjoyed the sunset too, just wish my camera could shoot the photo as well as my eyes actually see it.
Absolutely adored this cruise - the staff were amazing - the views were amazing - got wet under the waterfalls such a high enjoyed the Titanic moment especially with one of the cute male crew !!!
Will definitely do this cruise again next time.
We ended up switching to the morning cruise due to a scheduling conflict. We had no problem at all with Viator in getting this switched - they even confirmed with the outfitter on what time we needed to arrive. The cruise was wonderful - seeing dolphins and whales was a bonus on top of the beautiful scenery and great food. Thumbs up for this one!

What an enjoyable day. From start to finish we had an adventure to talk about for a long time to come! The boat is roomy and very comfy travelling. Certainly not bothered by any seas or swells today. Thank you Captain Chad! The scenery is to die for, the local knowledge and commentary is excellent, the manoeuvring under the waterfalls a thrill of a lifetime for those who braved the wet! To the crew Cole and David what a great job on drinks, food and photos. plenty of choice in the drinks department both soft and alcoholic and no shortage either!
We had a memorable day and the highlight of our trip to Kauai. Dinner on the way back and sunset drinks a must enjoy experience. Very happy customers AAA
We are unable to see the Na Pali Coast because of weather conditions. However, we were able to see dolphins, turtles, whales and some great coast line with a sunset. The crew was great, very informative and a lot of fun.
The crew was superb, full of fun and helpful. We saw beautiful scenery and birds, dolphins and whales. It felt a little rushed and that is understandable. The food was mediocre, but the crew made up for the lack by entertaining us. Would highly recommend this company and will contact them again next trip.
Our tour was the first one given in several days due to rough ocean waters. Our guide and captain was very good and informative. We saw many whales as well as dolphins and the Na Pali Coast is beautiful. The ocean was still very wild along the Na Pali coast which made the dinner portion of the cruise difficult as several people were seasick. This is a worthwhile tour and would get 5 stars if the weather and ocean cooperates.
Crew very attentive. Capt'n kept reminding us that he was going above and beyond for us. Food...eh!
The views are quite nice, but for me, it was not worth considering a 4-hour super rocky ride on the sea. It depends how well you get along with the waves i guess
