Get to the Fun Faster! The memories will last a lifetime... Our four boats, Leila, Holo Holo, and Adventurer II & III, get you to the action quicker than anybody else, so you have more time to snorkel, sightsee, relax and enjoy the pristine waters and spectacular cliffs of the Napali Coast & Niihau. We are the only Kauai boat tours company that offers daily trips to the "forbidden island" of Niihau.

This catamaran was fast. The mai tais were very good and the service was great. It deserves the ratings received on tripadvisor. The dinner served was just OK but the view and trip off set the food. Great sunset. We were lucky in that the winds were not high but we did receive some rain but that is to be... More

We set out on a sunset dinner cruise with Captain Glen and his crew on a beautiful afternoon. Since the waters were unusually calm, the captain was able to bring us farther north than usual. The highlights were the long Polihale beach, the magnificent Napali cliffs, and the waterfalls over cave openings. The captain slowed the catamaran down for us... More

This was a great trip...even tho we didn't get to go to The Forbidden Island because of the weather. The seas were too rough to get over there and back safely. So we snorkeled off the NaPali Coast is beautiful water. It was a rough ride but Captain Wendell gave people the option of going or not. Those who chose... More

Two years ago we did the Ni'ihau all day trip, this time just the NaPali 1/2 snorkeling trip with Capt'n Kelly and crew. We had great weather and a fantastic tour of the NaPali coast. Snorkeling is "ok" but the real draw to the north shore are the spectacular coastal views of the NaPali. If you have never done a... More

We went on the NaPali Coast and Niihau snorkeling trip. From the time we arrived to the time we arrived back the crew was amazing . We had Capt. Wendall and he was friendly and did great narratives during the trip. The crew was made up of a very helpful group. Even when people were getting sea sick they never... More

We loved our experience on the Holo Holo charter to Napali Coast and Niihau (The forbidden island). The snorkeling was excellent and we had dolphins on our bow as well other wildlife. The crew on the boat was top notch: Ian (captain), Shika (spelling), Abraham, and Jason were on top of everything from keeping passengers safe to grabbing your empty... More

Took tour with , Ian, Brandon & Jay. They were great and very knowledgeable. Beautiful view of the Napali Coast, great food and fun. We even saw whales, which was late in the year. Would definitely recommend.
