Our Mission

Aloha and welcome to Holo Holo Charters! When Holo Holo Charters was created over 20 years ago, we had one simple idea: to build high-quality custom boats on Kauai that could take you to some of the most remote and beautiful places on earth. Kauai offers unique and enchanting destinations only accessible by the ocean, including the Napali Coast, the forbidden Hawaiian island of Niihau, and Lehua Crater.

Being a third-generation boat builder ignited my passion for sailing and spending time on the water, which has truly allowed our company to create a unique product and vessels that no one else can match.

Kauai Boat Tours to the Napali Coast & Niihau

Every single day, from sunrise to sunset, Kauai’s coasts sing a unique symphony of natural wonder. There’s the intensity of the rainbows, the fluctuation of the waterfalls, the playfulness of the spinner dolphins, and the majesty of humpback whales (seasonally). It is truly music to the eyes and sustenance for the soul watching the sun rising and setting into the ocean. We’re obsessed and we believe that it’s “the best thing to do on Kauai” and no visit to Kauai is complete without experiencing the island from the water.

Our four Kauai-built boats are perfectly designed to take you and your family on an experience of a lifetime in the utmost safety, comfort, and style, to remote locations around the Napali Coast, Niihau, and Lehua Crater. Our talented team strives to provide impeccable service and deliver extraordinary ocean experiences. We’re ready to impress, so come holo holo with us and let us give you a big dose of vitamin sea!

"Fabulous Cruise"

Great service! Saw whales, sea turtles, bottle nose dolphins and spinner dolphins. The crew Drew, Emily and Jess were fantastic! They were very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of information about the island and the sea life. Highly recommend this cruise line!

"Beautiful Ride"

From the moment we took off our shoes it was a great ride. The guys were great and personable. Plenty to eat and drink and the group size was just great. Not too crowded. Beautiful sunset and beautiful water topped off the adventure.

"Highlight of Our Trip"

The Holo Holo snorkel/sail was a great excursion! The sailing was especially a fun experience. The crew was knowledgeable and helpful. Wasn’t a lot to see snorkeling, but it was still fun. Great activity for families. We saw monk seals, dolphins, turtles, and humpback whales from the boat.
