Nice cruise, awful dinner
, Jan 2022
If you book this "dinner" cruise, eat before you go or book a dinner reservation for after. Ads say you will be greeted with a drink and pupus. No pupus. Ads also say there will be a gourmet meal but it was very poor; tiniest little baby pork rib with less than two ounces of meat and a pile of white rice plus some vegetables in a greenish sauce that was so gross my wife refused to even look at her plate. I tasted the veggies and sauce and they did taste better than they looked. Cruise was nice, staff was very friendly and attentive, and the history was interesting. I'd book the cruise, but not the dinner version.
Top Notch Experience
, Jan 2022
This was a travel brochure type trip. Perfect in every way. First and foremost the crew - outstanding, very courteous and accommodating. The cruise down to the bay was perfect with excellent historic narration alternating with top notch live music. A very tasty dinner and some peaceful cruising in Kealakekua Bay. The return trip was all about the indescribable sunset while the crew circulated among the guests offering to take pictures. We were even briefly joined by a pod of dolphins.
Great Experience, Caring Staff
, Jan 2022
The cruise was excellent. We enjoyed the historical narration (including the history of Captain Cooke), the dinner and the music, too. The team really went all out to ensure everyone had a good time. Special kudos to Katie who helped accommodate my wife, who has CP. It made a huge difference!
Kuaui you say? Nope KONA! A memorable event
, Jan 2022
We’ve been on 2 dinner cruises on Kauai and my expectations were very low for this. But the family really wanted to go do we plopped down our $$$$. BEST. TRIP.—truly. Wirth all those $$. Never expected this to be such an eventful fun filled informative evening. The gal (can’t remember her name) was an Amazing narrator. We learned we laughed we danced and we ate and enjoyed the lovely ride. Hawaii is very different than Kauai and we weren’t sure if we’d like it since it’s so VOLCANIC! but the island is so different that it was truly awesome in a different way. Your money will be well spent. Good good good service good times. Enjoy your evening. We certainly did!

We came across dolphins which was a great surprise. The live music was also a plus. The trip as a whole was great.

My husband and I loved the friendly and professional staff and the historical commentary of the sites along the coast. I have already recommended this tour to my daughter when she visits.
We saw some dolphins...

We saw some dolphins right away and that was special. The music was wonderful. The narrator was hard to understand. Food was mediocre but I went for the experience so had a good time.
Great value, good vibes.
