Four of us went out on the Na Pali coast sunset sail and it was great. Our crew was fabulous. Captain Ian and the guys were great at attending to us with drinks, food and cookies after dinner/snacks! The sights were gorgeous and they took us to some awesome caves and waterfalls on the coastline. We also saw a few... More

This is an adventurous way to see the coast. However about one third of the people on the boat were sea sick!! Thank goodness for the attentive crew. They were on bucket patrol!The view is amazing but be prepared for a rough ride.

Ocean expeditions off of Kauai’s coastline are always an adventure! We do suggest for folks to take a motion sickness preventative medication, in hopes to plan for the worst and hope for the best when it comes to ocean conditions. There’s never a dull moment out on the water! Thank you for your review. Mahalo and Aloha More

Took the half day catamaran trip this past March with my wife and two daughters. Strong winds kept us (and all other tours) from heading to the Napali Coast. But the crew came up with an alternate destination that did not disappoint! The reservation staff, boat captain, and crew could not have been more pleasant and engaging. Every single member... More

Several companies offer this tour, but these guys use a motor powered (no sails) catamaran with a nice balance of deck and cabin space, and it can go really fast, allowing you to get from Pt Allen to about half way up the Napali Coast in a reasonable period of time. Yesterday, the surf was pretty rough with high winds,... More

My family of adults went on the Holo Holo catamaran sunset tour at the beginning of April. We ended up seeing approximately whales breaching in two different areas--a very lucky day given it was late for whale season. Our captain kept the tour moving but did pause for some great photo opportunities. The Na Pali coast is gorgeous and the... More

Holo Holo Charters is a company that practices customer service in all aspects of their excellent boat tours. I took the Niihua / Na Pali Coast Super Tour with two friends and was treated to an informative, safe, comfortable, and fantastic experience all around. The 65' catamaran is smooth and roomy. The staff (Drew & Jake) are attentive to and... More

We did the 7 hour charter to Niihau. This by far was some of the most spectacular snorkling we have done. The reef was amazing. I describe it like in the movie "Finding Nemo": there is sheer drop off to a vast ocean. Weather was great which made this spot available. The crew was very attentive to our needs, especially...

Captain Ian, Abraham, and Ahren were an awesome crew on the Napali + Niihau Super Tour. They were so friendly and made the whole day very comfortable. We were initially worried this 7 hour tour would seem long, but that was not the case. Great sights on the Na Pali Coast, super clear snorkeling at Niihau, awesome humpback whales breaching,...
