    Crew and captain were very nice and chill, did their best to ensure everyone had a great time. Route itself is great, beautiful coast, some interesting history, and we saw turtles and dolphins. We had a 3 year old and think he enjoyed it, by the last bit going back with some wind and getting dark he was a bit exhausted, but would do it again!

    Not a relaxing cruise
    Taylor_M, Sep 2023
    The views of the coast were amazing and the crew was very nice and attentive. However, if you have a weak stomach this is NOT the excursion for you. On the way back, a different captain had to drive the boat as there were extremely strong waves rocking us and we were trying to race back to shore before dark. Also, there is nothing "express" about this trip, as ours was over 5 hours long.
    Great sights and great crew!

    The tour was awesome. The crew was top notch.

    The wedding veil falls. We got close and got soaked as a blessing for our 30th anniversary. The whole trip was great. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was all so interesting. I think lots of folks will benefit from taking a pill for seasickness ahead of time.

    Happy anniversary! How beautiful and appropriate! Aloha
    Great crew. Skipper...

    Fantastic way to spend an afternoon!

    We had such an amazing time! Clear instructions for check in and parking. Prompt departure. Amazing captain and kind crew who kept us safe at all times. Food provided was delightful and the views were even better! Definitely recommend bringing a rain jacket and towel - you will likely get a lot of sea spray!
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Thank you so much for the kind review. You're right, you will most likely get a lot of sea spray :). Aloha
    Beautiful scenery on a fast boat ride!
    Nancy_W, Apr 2023
    Good excursion for those who want a fast boat ride and a chance to see the beautiful western coast. The captain and crew were very good. They provide some pre-packaged drinks, chip/snacks, and sandwich wraps which were ok. The boat ride is rough and loud which can be fun but might not be too intense for kids or some adults. If there is any history of motion sickness, take preventative medication! My husband does not usually have problems but did become motion-sick on this trip. Music selection played was good but our primary complaint was that it was played so loud that it was painful, especially over the motor noise other people trying to shout over all that. Our trip had a large adult family group who were very loud and stood up on the bow, blocking the views of anyone behind them. It would have been nice if the crew suggested they sit when not taking photos so others could enjoy the scenery too. The captain was providing description of what we were passing but we could not hear any of it. The crew was very nice and offered to take photos for the guests. It was a good experience overall with wonderful scenery but is not for everyone. Do not expect a relaxing or quiet sunset tour.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Well we do appreciate your review and honesty. The 'Imiloa is for sure a different experience than a typical catamaran - 'wet & wild' we like to say. Preventatives are always a good idea. The ocean and weather conditions are generally unpredictable these days. We hope you'll try one of our other vessels in the future, should you return. Mahalo for joining us!
    AWESOME Napali Coast Sunset Cruise/Captain/Crew!!!
    Mary_O, Apr 2023
    The spectacular views of the Napali Coast were AWESOME! The captain("Nono") and crew(Shane and "Kama") were AMAZING, skilled and experts in their jobs!!! The crew was especially attentive to each passenger and took time to talk to each couple or family:) Shane especially seemed to enjoy his job with his LOVE and respect for the water/boat standing out!!! The sandwiches were fresh and tasty and the chips/cookies a nice complement! The Mai Tai's were ample and yummy:) We also were happy to experience that water was encouraged and plentiful. Can't say enough POSITIVE things about this excursion!!! I highly recommend it!!!

    Beautiful, maybe not great for young kids
    William_C, Nov 2022
    We took the tour as 2 families (4 adults, 6 yr olds x2, 4 yr olds x2). The good - AMAZING staff! 5 star attention to all guests to make sure we were comfortable and had as much food and drink as we wanted. Several on board had nausea and they were super attentive in helping. - the sights of the Na Pali coast were spectacular as advertised. The bad/unexpected - while advertised for good for kids, it was a bit rough. On the way out to the north at this time of day, the waves were pretty extreme. The boat goes really fast (30+ nauts) and you can really feel the choppiness (even more so wtih the boat stopped...really rocky). - also out of control of the crew - there was a 20 min period of extremely heavy rain which had us bundling the kids under towels with heads down. Overall Impression - Beautiful tour with great sights - it was quite an "experience" - Glad I did it but wouldn't do it again. - the crew was really top notch
    Response from Host, Nov 2022
    We're sorry you felt the trip was a bit too much for your littles. Yes, the weather and ocean conditions can be unpredictable, we're very sorry to hear that. Hopefully you will change your mind and join us in the future, maybe during the summer when it's a bit calmer. We're glad over all you enjoyed the actual tour.
    Great memory

    Amazing Crew
    James_A, Sep 2022
    Captain Amber, crew members Josh, Kylie, and Dawn were amazing. We learned so much about Hawaiian culture and history. They made sure our trip was enjoyable and took care of everyone. We even saved a sea bird that was floating in the ocean. We had a wonderful time and can’t thank them enough.

    Thank you for sharing with us. We appreciate you!
    Just go, pictures don’t do it justice.
    Chastity_M, Sep 2022
    We were worried at one point that this weekend won’t provide good weather. But with no cancellations in the midst it was time to see the famous Na Pali Coast and boy was a sight to experience. With Jake at the helm and the crew mates Jake and Kamakana, it was a trip overwhelming memorable. The ocean was choppy, my girlfriend got sea sick, and the views were spectacular. With choppy waters, the crew made sure we were kept safe and were able to move safely throughout the boat. They were also able to accommodate my girlfriend who could handle the motion of the ocean. Taking care of us and allowing her potentially feed the fish. And the coastline, you just have to go.

    Adventurous Boat Ride - NaPali Cliffs
    Ingrid_Y, Sep 2022
    Adventures boat ride. Great moments looking at the waves of the wide open ocean at sun set and being close to the famous NaPali Cliffs. The afternoon light showed the fabulous color of the surf near the caves and waterfalls. Very attentive crew. We liked the smaller type catamaran with a small group.
