I had so looked forward to this outing. It is something I have always wanted to experience. I chose this trip because of the marine biologist on board and being able to go into the sea caves. My family and I went 2 days before Tropical Storm Darby. Needless to say, the waters were choppy. Tara was an expert at... More

Our extended family spent New Year's Eve on a whale watching tour with Kauai Sea Rider. The crew was very friendly and upbeat. We all had a great afternoon/evening together. Very comfortable vessel with plenty of space to move about while looking for whales. What a thrill we had seeing several whales and one that showed off for us for... More

There is no substitute for a day on the Napali Coast than making the trip with Capt. Tara and her crew. We have done this 10 times or more over the years. Safe, fun, and educational too!!

One of the best days of my life. Loved the captain and crew. My family of six had the best time too. We ate and played on the Na Pali Coast in the company of good people. What more could you want?

We had a great time both on a snorkeling tour and a Napoli coast tour. The crew was super fun, knowledgable, and very kind. They gave great information on what we were seeing, as well as helping to enjoy riding and snorkeling. We would definitely book with them again if we get to come back to the island.

My husband and I have been to Kauai at least 10 times but never did one of the Napali coast tours. We finally decided it was a must do, and after reading some great reviews about Kauai Sea Riders chose this tour. We stay on the south side of the island at Poipu, and getting to the harbor was much... More

We booked this adventure expecting to part of a larger group however to our delight ended up being a private tour for our family of four. Three of our party had not snorkelled before and were a little apprehensive about the trip however both Tara and Julie were great and dispelled any fears they had. They took us to some... More

Julie and nick were fantastic and the snorkel experience was awesome. They took us to an area full of sea turtles. Love the small group and personal attention.

We started off expecting a short excursion on the water. Nope, we got an interactive little adventure. We got to feel the warm clear water and swim in it, the Dolphins X4, the Sea Turtles and the snorkeling just a treat. We not only saw The Na Pali coast and the splendor of its beautiful range's, but were educated on... More
