This tour operates from a 25 ft. ZODIAC RIB (Rigid hull Inflatable Boat) called the “Hokupa’a”. Our ZODIAC is a US Coast Guard approved vessel for sixteen passengers that takes visitors to areas of marine interest along Kauai’s southern coast. When you’re diving with us we generally have 6 divers or less to ensure everyone has a unique and memorable experience. Kauai Down Under is the only company on Kauai that incorporates a zodiac adventure while you dive in the gentler waters off of Kauai’s south shore.
Encounter occasional dolphins an abundance of exotic Hawaiian reef fish and beautiful coral formations. Let’s not forget, one of the most exciting creatures we will encounter is the Honu; i.e. the Hawaiian green sea turtle. There is so much to see on these southern coasts in terms of pristine reefs and off-shore caverns that diving in these areas becomes a true pleasure. The fish in these areas are plentiful, the reefs are gorgeous and the weather is almost always sunny and beautiful. Our Captain and crew look forward to sharing their passion and knowledge of marine life and island history with you.
