At team Sea Riders we pride ourselves in what makes us different from other companies. Kauai Sea Riders has been providing specialized small group Zodiac Eco Tours on Kauai since 2005. As a Marine Biologist, I have always focused on providing Eco Tours to our guests – focusing on education while at the same time having a great time. All of our staff are professionally trained and share the same passion and reverence for this amazing ocean environment we get to play in everyday! We choose snorkel locations that aren’t over crowded or common, and you will have a Divemaster guiding your snorkel adventure ensuring you have an exceptional snorkeling experience. At the end of the day, our goal is to have our customers feel that they have been expertly cared for, had an experience of a lifetime, and have learned something new about the ocean and its incredible inhabitants.

We had an amazing time with Captain Nick and Elijah! They are wonderful guides, friendly, funny, knowledgable and adventurous. We went into several sea caves, under waterfalls, saw baby spinner dolphins and sea turtles...gorgeous. The small group was great, feeling quieter and more intimate. We have a 7 year old daughter and both guides were wonderful with her, making her... More

Always fun with this crew. Feel like a real adventure, especially when the waves are up! Not for the faint hearted. Lots of dolphins and turtles and stunning scenery . Loved the close up views of waterfalls and caves. You may end up going where no other tours will go!!

This was such a well organized snorkel trip! The crew is so friendly and in the know. We first took a little ride around south shore to a dolphin resting area. During our first half hour we saw three turtles and a group of spinner Dolphins! We spent a large amount of time in the water and got up close... More
