About Kauai Sea Rider Snorkel & Whale Watching Tours
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 a great time on this tour. Great experience! We saw whales, green sea turtles, and even a monk seal. Our guide, Nick was awesome.

We really weren't sure about going on a Zodiac but boy, what an adventure. The captain was awesome as well as the first mate. She took us out to a cove where we saw some rare monk seals. They were playing right next to the boat. We then went out and followed a group of 4 whales, one of which was a baby. They spouted and flipped their fins. It was great. She was very knowledgeable and really had a lot of great information. We would highly recommend this trip. So much fun.

We were is Kauai in Late June. Super fun tour with Kauai Sea Rider. Our tour "captain" was Kevin and Christina. They were above and beyond, prep snacks and fun attitude. We will definitely book another tour when we return to Kauai. Highly recommend!

Super sun ride. Stopped at 2 perfect snorkel spots; one with lots of turtles and one with lots of fish (and turtles). Saw spouting horn and more. Captain and guides were awesome.

We’re so glad we chose the smaller Zodiac boat tour of the Na Pali coast rather than a larger boat with more people. One of the larger boats left the dock right before us and it must’ve had more than 50 people, while our tour only had 14 people. A Zodiac is what the Navy Seals use so it’s fast and agile, which meant that our tour went into some of the caves along the coast while the bigger boats could only see them from a distance. Captain Adam and Emily did a fantastic job showing us around the Na Pali coast and explaining the history and significance of different places to the native Hawaiians as well as the more recent history. We also saw some beautiful fish while snorkeling. We had thought about hiking along the Na Pali coast which we’ve heard is incredible and difficult, but our family enjoyed being able to see it from the boat. We highly recommend taking this tour with the Kauai Sea Riders!

Aloha and Mahalo for joining us for your Na Pali Coast Adventure. We are so happy that you have decided to join us with our smaller Zodiac boat and was able to experience the sea caves along side with the coastline beauty. We hope that the rest of your time on Kauai was just as magical and hope to see you again on your next visit. Mahalo
