    Overall this cruise was amazing -even with Mother Nature not 100% cooperating. Na Pali Coast: This is why we booked the cruise and we did it way in advance because Christmas-New Years is super busy on the Island. Before we went out we knew there was a large swell and there

    Water was too close to snorkel so that didn’t happen. Water was too rough to get close to NaPili coast so that didn’t happen. Three of my four teens got seasick and the crew couldn’t have cared less. Boat was overcrowded and there wasn’t enough space for all the passengers to

    We'd like to thank you for taking the time to share your honest review and are sorry to hear how you felt about your experience. The day that you joined came just after Kauai had received abundant rainfall, which made snorkeling unsafe due to very murky conditions. We were able to go further up the Napali Coast than we typically do because of the extra time we had. We are sorry to hear some of your party experienced motion sickness, it affects every body differently and we always recommend taking preventative measures. Our crew is on board to serve and assist with whatever is needed, including tending to those feeling ill and providing facts and legends of the areas we visit and marine life we encounter. We hope the rest of your Kauai vacation exceeded your expectations. Mahalo and Aloha

    Most overarching point: professionalism. These guys are so well organized, and really know how to manage the trip well. Very detailed but concise "rules", and allow for changes if the likelihood of poor snorkeling is a possibility. Went end-of-December, so not sure if this
