Having grown up in Honolulu, the enticement of being any where near Niihau was too much to pass up. Wow! Captain Wendell and his crew of Kamo and Ahren are about your safety first, everything else comes afterward. What a day! It started with bottle-nosed dolphins leading us out of the harbor, then within minutes we were surrounded by spinner... More

We went on the Napali coast cruise. The catamaran had a very rude female captain; even the staff seemed a bit embarrassed by her. The snorkeling spot she choose was not good: murky water and no fish. Not even an enjoyable swim. I understand that the ocean creates conditions beyond human control, but the way the captain handled ordering everybody... More

We started the cruise with a run down of safety and then got on the charter boat. It is a barefoot cruise (no shoes allowed). The staff was helpful and attentive, drinks and food were included and the staff were quick with the drinks. The food was buffet style and although it was not a fancy meal it was still... More

We did the 5 hour snorkeling and sail of Na'pali coast out of Port Allen. Snorkeling was not great but we were not at their usual spot. Crew was excellent and the scenery is among the best in the world. Highly recommend both this tour and the company. The size of this companies tour seems to be smaller than others... More

Aloha! Aboard the sailing catamaran 'Leila' we are truly able to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Kauai's coastline! The Napali Snorkel sail is an all inclusive tour at an excellent value for families. Snorkeling conditions and locations do vary from day to day and humpback whales are normally actively spotted in our waters between December thru April. Thank you for... More

I signed up for a day trip with Holo Holo. It was amazing. You can't beat these guys. First the good: This boat offers corrective lens masks, floatation devices, and the ships crew is well versed on maritiime safety and passenger safety. We were able to circle the entire island, visit the forbidden island, but you can only get so... More

Yay! You had quite the day :) HoloHolo Charters began with circumnavigating the island of Kaua'i. Today that trip is offered only on an exclusive basis or on days like yours when the conditions are right and our customers say go for it! The other obscure island you mentioned is Lehua crater, Lehua is a small, crescent-shaped island only 0.7... More

We had such a great day on our recent tour! (8/19/14) I was worried about the weather based on the forecast, but the weather was perfect. We started off with a safety demo, then headed out. We where told that if we chose to sit on the front deck it would be bumpy and wet, and it was VERY WET!... More

I booked the trip approx 4 days before my the activity date 9/7/2014 adventure 2. Everything from the booking process, the follow up process, the meet & greet was fantastic. Spencer and Dale were amusing as well, ensuring both the safety and all passengers needs we're taken care of during the whole trip. The trip out was enjoyable and informative.... More

Holo Holo Charters is the premier charter to see the Napoli Coast. If you are looking for a first class ship and crew, book this trip. I recommend the morning 7 hour tour that will exceed your expectations without a doubt. Captan Glen and the crew will ensure your trip is safe, comfortable and memorable. My wife and I always...

We booked this cruise because one of our friends won a free Holo Holo NaPali coast and Ni'hau, snorkeling cruise. We left early and enjoyed a continental breakfast along the way to the NaPali coast. It was a bit bumpy, but manageable. The NaPali coast was amazing and the captain talked about the history and the different movies that have... More
