Head across the channel to the “Forbidden Island” of Niihau.

This premier trip aboard Holo Holo takes you west and north to the majestic Napali Coast, where you can see waterfalls, lush valleys, and sea caves. After sightseeing and hearing the history of the Napali Coast, we head across the channel to the “Forbidden Island” of Niihau.

When we arrive at Niihau, we choose our snorkel spot. Our caring crew assists and instructs you in snorkeling — relax, float, and watch the comings and goings of the aquatic world. No other place in Hawaii offers you such unique formations, and no other company provides you with the opportunity to see Niihau and Lehua. Niihau’s old age means it has been shaped and carved by ocean currents and waves into the longest of all the Hawaiian Islands.

After snorkeling, enjoy a gourmet deli-style buffet lunch. Choose from a variety of deli meats, cheeses, veggies, and breads to make your sandwich a work of art! Also included are pasta and fresh fruits. Assorted soft drinks are served throughout the tour, with beer and wine served after snorkeling. While you are eating, we share stories about the island, the people, and the history of Niihau.

Your Tour Includes
Lehua Crater, Niihau’s North Shore, the Napali Coast, marine life, and more!
Continental breakfast and gourmet deli lunch
Free beverages all day — with beer and wine served after we snorkel
All snorkeling equipment and instruction
The chance to see humpback whales (peak season Dec-Apr)

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.

Disclaimer: This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. It may not be suitable for individuals who are physically challenged. Those who suffer from motion sickness should take precautions. Safety and your experience are always our top priority. Ocean conditions can sometimes turn rough, therefore all tour routes and destinations are subject to change due to weather.

Boat Details

If you’re looking for a spacious vessel, Holo Holo has got you covered! This 65-foot long and 24-foot wide, agile power catamaran was built with safety and comfort in mind.

Holo Holo was designed to eliminate side-to-side rolling motion by slicing though the water, resulting in a smooth ride. Twin diesel engines provide the power to get you to the beautiful sights of the Napali Coast and Niihau faster than any other vessel.

While Coast Guard certified for up to 65 passengers, we don’t exceed 49, which means more room to sightsee, snorkel, relax and enjoy your time on the water. Ample seating is available throughout the vessel, the bow provides an exciting and wet ride at times, while the stern has comfortable bench seating with unrestricted views of the coastline.

The cabin area features a bar and seating at two large tables, plus additional bench seating to keep you out of the elements, as well as space to store your belongings. Two heads (restrooms) are located on deck for your convenience (no need to climb or descend a ladder to use the facilities).

When it’s time to snorkel, you’ll find a swim step at the stern for ease of entry, and a ladder below the surface for quick and easy re-boarding. After snorkeling rinse off with a freshwater shower.

Wonderful experience!

We've been to Kauai numerous times and we wish we had done this sooner. We saw hundreds of dolphins and quite a few whales. Komma did a great job of sharing lots of information with us. The captain took our safety into account and we weren't able to go to the coast of Ni'ihau due to the weather, but better safe than sorry. The company gave us a partial refund, which totally surprised us.
If you have motion sickness issues, I'd strongly urge you to take something prior to the trip, but know the crew will do everything in their power to make you comfortable.

Memorable Trip!

My husband and I took this cruise last week- the scenery was absolutely stunning! Leaving so early, we got a wonderful view of the sunrise over the water. The captain did a great job of getting us good photo ops. We couldn't make it out to Ni'ihau due to the size of the swells, so instead the captain took us around the entire island of Kauai instead. We saw whales, dolphins, and even a turtle. We got to snorkel somewhere else as well., which was fun. But I have to say the crew was one of our favorite parts. Due to a freak accident, (No one was at fault), my husband ended up going overboard from the front of the boat. It was terrifying, but Christian and Comma were absolute champs. Thankfully my hubby was unhurt and they got him back on board safely. They kept checking on him the rest of the trip. Despite the craziness, we would definitely do this cruise again (just without the extra swimming!) and we both enjoyed it. We recommend Holo Holo for your Na Pali Coast tour! And thanks again to the crew- you guys rock!
