Hanalei Boat Tours

Both Adventurer II and III are super-fast, modern, rigid-hull inflatable rafts. These comfortable vessels should not be confused with a Zodiac-type rubber raft, they’re made with channeled fiberglass hulls that cut through the waves. The efficient design and twin 225-hp outboard motors allow for top speeds of up to 30 knots.

Dive ladders and freshwater showers offer the perfect platform for snorkeling. These vessels offer stadium-style seating and even an enclosed marine toilet. They are designed for comfort as well as speed and safety.

Kauai Boat Tours to the Napali Coast

The Napali Coast comes into view just minutes after leaving Hanalei Bay. The dramatic cliffs, caves, waterfalls, and white-sand beaches have you in awe from the start. Your knowledgeable captain and crew share the history and legends of this enchanting area, which was once home to hundreds of Hawaiians.

Along the way, we’re looking for sea life, including dolphins, turtles, whales (in season), seabirds, and even mountain goats that can often be spotted high up on the cliffs. Your captain anchors at one of several protected shallow reef areas that are teeming with tropical fish. We provide all of your snorkel gear and instruction so you can get the most out of your Kauai snorkeling adventure.

After snorkeling near the gorgeous Napali Coast, we take some time to relax and enjoy the magnificent coastline. We provide a tasty sandwich lunch, with chips, soft drinks, juices, water, and cookies for dessert. When you have had your fill, we make our way back to Hanalei Bay.

"Outstanding experience!"

From start to finish my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon trip down the Napali Coast. The captain and crew were engaging and interesting - and their enthusiasm was palpably genuine. This was my third Napali experience and by far the best - I wholeheartedly recommend Holo Holo Charters.

"A Very Fun and Well Organized Trip!"

We had a spectacular trip down the Na Pali Coast; saw lots dolphins, turtles, and a Monk Seal. The young men were very knowledgeable, fun, and helpful. I was amazed at how comfortable the boat was, and we enjoyed the snorkeling and a yummy lunch. Thank you for making this experience possible; I will definitely do it again when family visits.

"Highlight of our trip!"

We had the best time. Every minute was unforgettable. Worth every dollar and our captains were fantastic. Highly recommended!
