For true trade wind sailing on Kauai join us aboard Leila, a beautiful 50' sailing catamaran. Nobody sails more, and it’s not uncommon to attain speeds up to 18 knots (about 20mph)!

Napali means “the cliffs” and you’ll see how apt that name is when you gaze upon its world-renown 3,500-foot heights, green valleys, waterfalls and hidden beaches. As we head for our destination your crew will entertain your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once lived there. The Napali Coast is a sight to be enjoyed from sea level!

To top off the experience, your Captain will anchor the boat and you’ll have a chance to do some snorkeling (snorkel location varies depending on the weather conditions the day of your tour).

We provide all the snorkel gear—including flotation—and professional instruction to make sure you have a great time in the water.

We pride ourselves on creating fun and memorable ocean adventures for our guests. Your safety is our top priority; therefore, all tour routes, destinations and snorkeling activities are dependent on ocean and weather conditions. Conditions around Kauai can change quickly, so our expert captains are constantly analyzing and may wait until check-in time to determine the best route for the day. If that occurs you will have the opportunity to go on the altered tour, reschedule to another day, or cancel your tour at no charge if it is weather related.

Leila: Our Sleek Sailing Catamaran

With her sleek construction and design, Leila slips quickly and smoothly through the waters. The catamaran design allows for level sailing. With no more than 10 degrees of “heel,” you won’t be sailing sideways.

Although Leila’s two-hull design is based on a historical prototype, she truly is a modern, state-of-the-art vessel. The space-age epoxy/glass construction used to build Holo Holo was used in making Leila as well. This composite makes for a strong and safe structure. The mast and sail are of the best quality and modern design.

Leila has two entry/exit points for convenient movement on and off the boat while snorkeling. She also has two heads (bathrooms), one located on each side of the boat and are spacious enough to change from “sailing” to “swimming” attire.

Leila has all the modern luxuries and, at 28′ wide, there is ample room for lounging. She’s licensed to carry 45 people, but we keep it down to 37 to give you plenty of space to take in the views.

Fantastic Snorkel and Sail to NaPali Coast

I've been back from vacation for about a month now and am still raving about my catamaran tour. Captain Kelly and her crew were fantastic; I felt very safe and taken care of throughout the trip, and I learned a lot along the way. The scenery is absolutely beautiful, and we were lucky to see three species of dolphins and humpback whales.

I would take this tour again for sure and have already recommended it to friends.

If you go, you will get wet, especially if you ride up at the bow. This being said, it's a lot of fun up at the bow!

Incredible Tour

My gf and I did a sail/snorkel morning tour. This was the highlight of our trip. The weather was amazing. The crew did a great job of describing the sights, keeping us refreshed with food and drinks, and generally just being available for all of our questions. The Na'Pali coast itself is breathtaking, I nearly cried. The snorkeling was super fantastic as well. Almost immediately we spotted a sea turtle swimming right next to us. I can't tell you what that meant to me as I have a fascination with them. I got some great underwater pics. We also spotted an octopus that was camouflaged as coral until he swam away. On our journey back, we spotted dolphins and flying fish. I can't say enough great things about that day. I highly recommend Holo Holo Charters to anyone thinking about it. Big shout out to the crew: Captain Ian, Nicole, and Kekoa...thank you so much for making that day so memorable!
