We have been sailing with Capt. Andy for many years. We tease them that we need a frequent-sailing card. We have sailed numerous times with Capt. Rick, Capt. Mark, and this year with Capt. Trent. They run two great catamarans, the Sprit of Kauai and the Alikolani (I may have butchered that name). Both are roomy and comfortable. The crews have always been friendly and helpful.
You can choose to sit in the lower portion of the boat and avoid getting wet, but you came to smell the salt, feel the ocean mist, enjoy the view, and snorkel, didn’t you? The front trampolines are usually the wettest and bounciest, while the back of the boat rides fairly smooth. Very cool to be on the trampolines when you are running with the dolphins. We usually choose the 1pm snorkel/dinner tour. (My group are not morning people.) Five and a half hours that includes the scenic ride, snacks, snorkeling (includes gear), a dinner buffet, and open bar while sailing. We’ve seen turtles, dolphins, had great snorkeling, and met fun folks. Oh yeah, you get to enjoy a marvelous sunset too.
The dinner hasn’t changed much over the years - chicken thighs and beef, a nice salad, rice pilaf, bread, dessert. Sneaky Tikis, beer, wine, soda.
I have to say, we enjoy this so much, one year we had to go twice due to changing guests over the time we were visiting. We did not want either person to miss out, and they weren’t here at the same time. We could not let them go alone - oh shame!
If you book direct online, you can get a free T-shirt. If you do a timeshare presentation, maybe you can get a 2-for-1 or better. Either way, go and enjoy and relax and marvel at the unbelievable coastline. And don’t forget to take lots of pictures.

The crew were friendly and made every effort to make our time on board fun and relaxing. Sneaky Tiki's flowed freely and were good. Lunch was well done and there was plenty of food for all on board.
The afternoon was well spent, relaxing, and informative. We saw some of the locations where different movies were filmed. Poi'pu Bay from the water was indeed different than from land.
Next time we go, we'll again attempt a cruise up the Na'pali coast for the views and snorkeling.

After lunch we started to head back. The crew unfurled the sail and we were able to sail for a short time. However, the winds had picked up to the point where we had to motor back to port.
The crew was very professional regarding the safety of the boat and the passengers, but were very fun and accommodating as well.
We would recommend a tour of this nature. The ocean can get rough at times, especially during the winter months. For those that cannot handle a rough sea we would recommend taking something for motion sickness the night before or start with a shorter tour.
You can bet we would do this again!

On the way to the Na Pali Coast we spotted a pod of about 200 dolphins. They took us for a closer look. It was like Sea World gone wild. We stopped a couple of times for a short swim and stretch. The snorkeling was good and the highlight of the trip. On the way back they had a deli lunch with sandwiches and all the sides. The food was very good. They offered free beer, wine, soda, and juice. The tour also included breakfast. I recommended this tour for anyone!
