Hanalei Boat Tours

Fun fact: Kauai is home to seven distinct microclimates, ranging from the arid westside to the dense interior rainforest. And because the island is only 550 square miles, you can reasonably drive around and see it all. However, there is one stretch along the island’s northwest shore where there is no road—the world-famous Napali Coast.

One might say that the Napali Coast is arguably the most beautiful section of Kauai but we go so far as to say the Napali Coast is unquestionably the most beautiful section of Kauai. This roughly twenty-mile stretch of the island is home to spectacular 4000’ cliffs, vast emerald valleys such as Kalalau Valley and Honokoa Valley, numerous cascading waterfalls, pristine beaches such as Hanakapiai Beach and Miloli’i Beach, the Open Ceiling Sea Cave, the Honopu Rock Arch, wildlife, rainbows… it’s like music for the eyes.

Napali Coast Boat Tours From Hanalei

Visiting Kauai without seeing the Napali Coast would be like going to Athens and ignoring the Acropolis. After traveling all this way, it would practically be criminal to not experience the crème de la crème of Kauai, on one of our Napali Coast boat tours.

Holo Holo Charters operates Napali Coast, Lehua Crater, and Niihau Island catamaran boat tours year-round out of Port Allen, on Kauai’s south shore. Additionally, we’re proud to offer Napali Coast boat tours seasonally (April-October) out of Hanalei, on Kauai’s north shore. In fact, we’re the only permitted Hanalei boat tour company offering raft tours out of Hanalei.

Our two identical 25-passenger boats, Adventurer II and Adventurer III, were built in Hawai’i, specifically for taking guests on unforgettable sightseeing and snorkeling Napali Coast excursions. Our Hanalei boat tour boats are small enough to explore inside the sea caves and get underneath the waterfalls, yet large enough to offer creature comforts such as forward-facing seating and toilets. Our knowledgeable and experienced captains and crew will entertain you with stories and legends of the historic coast, which was once home to thousands of Hawaiians, while pointing out wildlife and interesting geographical features. They will choose an optimal snorkeling location depending on the day’s weather and ocean conditions and be your lifeguards while you’re swimming and exploring underwater.
