Beautiful Experience Loved every moment of this dinner cruise. The staff were so friendly and kind and on point with catering to everyone. Didn’t have to get up for anything as they were always asking and coming around to check if we were good. The bartender made some great drinks, the food was what honestly surprised me I’ve had many disappointing experiences with boat food but this food was delicious from appetizers to desert everything was delicious. I slightly suffer from sea sickness and they have drinks on board to help with that along with motion sickness medicine so I was happy about that took it in the beginning and had no problems. The views were gorgeous and the staff was always desiring and volunteering to take pictures of the customers. I would highly recommend this tour

Historical Dinner Cruise The staff were professional and attentive, the views amazing, the food was delicious, the entertainment top notch, the history lesson interesting, and the sunset was second to none! We did see goats on the side of the mountain and some dolphins, but that was it for wildlife. We really enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this dinner cruise.

Amazing night, very enjoyable Beautiful time on the water for the dinner cruise, very friendly and welcoming staff on board . The food was absolutely delicious, which they started serving early into the cruise. I felt they could have spaced out the meals a lot more, it included an entree, main course & dessert, very nice courses ! the cruise also included a complimentary cocktail, which was lovely. Very warm and calm night !

Best Dinner and Historical Cruise in Hawaii. This cruise was awesome. My family and I had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the history behind the island and the music. The meal was 5 star. The most tender beef you could ever have. Some restaurants could take a lesson. The staff made sure the guest were enjoying themselves and attended to our needs. Great Bar Tender as well. The Best Dinner Cruise we have experienced in a long time. We highly recommend you taking this Cruise.

So Much Fun! My husband and I debated about whether or not to take this cruise. It seemed a little pricey, but we have to say it was worth every penny and we would take it again next time we're on the Big Island. We had a great time! The history narration and the music were wonderful, and the food did not disappoint. It was delicious and honestly better than I've had at some expensive restaurants. (I'm still trying to figure out how they pull that off.)

The crew was so attentive and made a point of going around and checking on everyone to make sure they had what they needed. They were very personable and a lot of fun.

If you can, we would highly encourage you to take this cruise. It was a relaxing, fun-filled evening. And what's not to like about a beautiful Hawaiian sunset to top it off?

An absolute must!!! This was one of my favorite things I did on our whole trip! Worth every penny! The crew was phenomenal, the captain was humorous, and the food was absolutely delicious! They offer a full bar and delicious drinks. They incorporated historical information along with beautiful guitar music throughout. We enjoyed the entire adventure and even saw dolphins and pilot whales. There is plenty of room for everyone and you feel spread out with lots of room. The entire adventure was wonderful and I would recommend it and also return to do it again.

Great experience with bonus Pilot Whales galore! Amazing life experience that is unforgettable! Great accommodating crew (vegetarian), wonderful local narrator, and fantastic music customized for the audience! I spotted pilot whales (many!) and we went out for a closer look.

I highly recommend these guys!

Great experience Thr food was delicious! The service was perfect! The amazing sunset and all the wildlife made the trip unforgettable. We saw a baby humpback learning to breach, a pod of spinner dolphins and pilot whales! I wish we could hear the information shared a little better what we could hear was fascinating.
