"Great Time!"
January, 2019
We took the raft for whale watching. It's a Navy Seal raft so you go fast and hold on tight. You might be a little sore the next day but the ride and view was worth the trip even if you don't see whales. My 10 year old loved the ride itself.

You will get wet. Our ponchos were futile. Sunglasses and sunscreen recommended.

We saw lots of spray and when we didn't think we'd see much, a whale jumped right in front of us (101 feet away)! Crew was knowledgeable, answering our questions and concerned about our safety and comfort with seasickness remedies on the ready.

Will book again if ever return to this area.

Captain Jeff and crew did a fantastic job hosting the 2 hour tour off the south coast of Kauai. We were fortunate to spy several male and female humpback whales as they gently curled under the water and we got a great shot of the tail flip. Four bottle nose dolphins swam iver to say hi and one floated on its back checking us out. A bit later we came across a pod of spinner dolphins that kept up with the catamaran for awhile, jumping and spinning in the waves. Complimentary beverages and wraps were offered throughout the trip. Also loved the music selection as we cruised around. Would definitely recommend!

Good Trip. We did not see many whales, but we saw a lot of dolphins. The captain was Rock-n-Roll. On the way back he cranked the boat and let people stand up front and bounce some waves. Very friendly crew.. 1 -10 I give the experience an 8.

This morning my wife and I joined Captain Chris & CJ for the zodiac whaletour. It only took about 5 minutes before we spotted our first pod of 4. This luck continued through the 3 hour tour. We encountered about a dozen humpbacks, hundreds of spinner dolphins and a huge sea turtle. Chris and CJ were knowledgeable and delightful. I have no problem with recommending this tour.

We took the Zodiac boat tour and it was amazing. We saw porpoises, whales and lots of fish and turtles when we stopped to do some snorkeling. Captain Shaked and first mate Jamie were outstanding. There were lots of big swells and waves due to the strong winds but Shaked skillfully drove the boat to minimize the bumps. Jamie was the narrator and provided a lot of interesting history about the Napali coast and the early Hawaiian culture. The views and the sea caves were fantastic. This was one of the highlights of our visit to Kauai and a truly memorable adventure.
