Dream Cruises Hawaii
This company offers a variety of entertaining cruises in the waters off Honolulu and beyond. Its most popular activity is the Pacific Splash Barefoot Fun Cruise, which lasts or about three hours. Dolphin-watching cruises depart each morning and whale-watching cruises happen several times a day during the winter (December 15 through April 30). Sunset dinner cruises and extended voyages are also available.
We enjoyed the dolphine cruise very much. Right up close and personal. We saw dolphin spinning in mid air, REALLY! Hard to count the number of revelutions but I'd guess 7 complete 360's might be max. The whales were just an added pleasure. Nice boat, one of the largest catamarans I've ever seen. No, you don't lean out on this one. She's over 100 feet. The captain and deckhands were pretty cool. After such an enjoyable adventure, we decided to book a snorkeling cruise with this same company. It was FANTASTIC! Different boat, a really nice maybe 110 to 120 ft power cruise boat, different captain, different marina. Same friendly service. We wanted to book their next cruise, a dinner cruise, but thought we'd better save that for our next trip to Honolulu. I highly recommend getting in touch with Dream Cruises.
The bus was late to pick us up and the air-con didn't work in 85 degree heat. When I suggested to the staff that they do something about the cockroaches on the buffet they laughed and said that was included with our "dream cruise." When I got home to make matters worse I discovered they charged my credit card seven times. I call many times and talked to a man named Steve to get the over charge refunded. He lied and said the credit was coming through. Eventually my credit card company took the charge off and said they had many complaints against Dream Cruises. They will distroy your vacation!
My family and I have just returned from Oahu. The BEST part of our trip was Dream Cruises. We signed up for the Pacific Splash Barefoot Fun cruise. That was clearly the best choice we made during our 10 days in Hawaii. The Dream Cruises boat took us out about a mile off shore where we could see Diamond Head and Waikiki � a really nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the crowds. We got to snorkel and see tons of beautiful fish just a few yards from the boat. All the equipment was provided so it was a completely no-hassle day. No other boats were around and it was totally safe. The kids really loved the water slide and trampoline. Even our two-year old went in the water and we had a heck of a time getting the kids back into the boat. The freshly grilled food tasted great and crew was very friendly. We highly recommend Dream Cruises, its name is well-deserved.
Our family of six - four children and two adults, went on Dream Cruises dolphin eco-adventure in August 2004. It could not have been a better experience. The boat was very clean and comfortable, with an inside seating area to stay out of the sun, as well as outside covered areas, a large sundeck, and restrooms. There was plenty of room to walk around, and enjoys the views of the island, as well as the dolphins. We found the crew to be very helpful and friendly, and patient with the children. The captain was available for questions during the entire cruise, and had a lot of interesting information to share. We saw A LOT of spinner dolphins, with many mother and baby pairs, and were amazed by the acrobatic show they put on. The buffet lunch was very good, and freshly grilled on our way out to the dolphins. There was also unlimited sodas and juices to enjoy. We felt very fortunate with our choice of cruises when we saw passengers in other cruise boats, basically large inflatable-type rafts, with no sun protection, no room to stand up, no restrooms, and no food or drink service. We had a wonderful adventure, and have many amazing shots of dolphins to remember just how close we were to them. We hope to go back on this dolphin cruise on our next trip to Hawaii.
We scheduled a dinner cruise on the Big Island for New Years Eve of 2004. We were called the day of the cruise, and told it was cancelled. We were leaving January 4, so the only option we had was January 3. We scheduled that cruise, and it was cancelled as well. We were told a refund would be on our credit card (which was all ready charged the entire amount of the cruise the day it was booked) in 10-14 days. It is now February 8, and we have yet to get a refund. My husband and I have called them over a half-dozen times asking, and every time we are told someone will call us back - this has never happened. The last time my husband informed them we intended to dispute the charge and their nonchalant response was "Ok!". We are now in the midst of this dispute. I would not reccomend booking anything with a company that charges prior to the service, and then is totally unwilling to accomodate when they cancel.
