    We had the most wonderful time!! Customer service: Incredible. Shoutout to Josiah, Jess and John. Overall a great experience and food/drinks. Snorkeling was a great experience along though the reef was okay we thought we were gonna see more with snorkeling still had fun swimming. The Napali coast was beautiful. though the If you get sea sick… be prepared… there were at least 5 people who were throwing up on the way back since it was a rougher ride with the speed. (fun rollercoaster for some people, and sickening for others) We connected a lot with the cabin crew and others on the boat which made the experience very enjoyable. There were about 48 guests on the catamaran, it was a bit crowded in my opinion but overall we reccomend.
