Capt Joe and two mates named Dane were awesome providing us with a wonderful experience. The food was really good too and with unlimited beer, wine and Mai Tai's we were set. Good craft IPA beer too! We saw lots of whales, dolphins, turtles, and the scenery was breath taking. Can't say enough good about the whole trip. Thanks again.

We were lucky enough to have Cole as our captain, with Danny & Josh as wonderful 1st mates! We took the sunset/whale watching cruise. Right away we saw a huge Green Sea Turtle in the harbor....followed by numerous whale sightings! Danny and Josh were such great hosts - retrieving any beverage we wanted. Cole was an outstanding captain, keeping us... More

Originally had booked for the dive trip out to Niihau but Mother Nature had other plans. Blue Dolphin called and scheduled us on the shorter trip so we were still able to dive and snorkel, then a trip up the Napali Coast. We had decent weather, saw the beach at Kalalau which I had hiked into a few years ago... More

Took the whale watch/sunset tour on February 15. The tour was awesome and one of the highlights of our trip. The Captain and crew did a fantastic job of finding whales and attending to the passengers. Very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend them for any of the tours they offer.

Kudos to the crew of the Blue Dolphin Tour to the Na Pali coast. We've been on numerous boat tours but, this crew was the best EVER. Because the weather forecast was "iffy" (Sat. Feb 18th) we got snorkeling out of the way early. Then, it was off to the coast. Along the way, the crew alerted us to turtles,... More

The captain Chad and crew Rob and Yoav were great. We seen a lot of whales and they made sure we seen the beautiful coast line. All other boats turned around but they wanted to make sure we seen everything.

Had a FANTASTIC experience on this charter. Captain Chris was phenomenal... laid back yet assertive with safety issues, fun, informative and entertaining. His crew for the morning (Jen, Nate, Geoff) were AMAZING. Seriously amazing. They were genuinely kind, caring, and were attentive to safety issues without being aggressive or "jerky" about it. The snorkeling was a bit choppy so I... More

What an amazing experience up the Napali Coast for the sunset cruise with Captain Chris and his super crew! A must do on the Garden Island! The trip was everything and more than we could have asked for: majestic cliffs, awesome whales breaching, spinner dolphins literally spinning, and an absolutely beautiful sunset, not to mention the delicious food and "...
