Kauai Boat Tour Reviews

Ok, where do I begin? We did the super tour up the Napali coast with captain Glenn and crew members Heather, Keenan, and James. The catamaran was cool, we were all vibing and having a great time until the WHALES SHOWED UP AND DECIDED TO STAY!!! Minds were blown, bucket lists were checked off and dreams came true. We watched them and they watched us for nearly 20 minutes. I can’t remember anything else after this…I think we saw spinner dolphins, and snorkeled with sea turtles and a stingray but seriously, so vague compared to the eye-to-eye contact I had with a frikkin giant humpback whale. Do this tour, you may not be as lucky as me in the whale department, but you will have a blast with this amazing group of guides who made this trip so fun. Thank you Holo Holo!

My wife and I took a sunset cruise with them on their powered catamaran and it was outstanding. The captain was funny and talented and the crew was kind and attentive as well as being very interactive with everyone. Conditions for our tour were outstanding. The water was beautiful and the views of the NaPali coast were breathtaking. In addition to seeing the wonderful views of the land and sea, we also got to see several humpback whales (some came up to the boat even after we had long since stopped to ensure we didn’t approach or bother them). I would definitely take this cruise again and recommend it to everyone who wants to see more of Kauai.

My husband & I took the Na Pali Coast sunset dinner cruise in February 2022. It was one of the highlights of our 12 days in Hawaii! Absolutely stunning views, very knowledgeable staff, and dinner and drinks made for the perfect afternoon and evening. We were so excited to get a captain that was dedicated to getting us some whale views, it was a huge bonus to our trip.

Simply stunning views and an amazing crew, truly spectacular service. We had a blast cruising up to the coastline with unlimited drinks and even saw a humpback whale on the way. Then once we got to the Nepali coast, the pictures speak for themselves, it was breathtaking. On the way back, we had a very tasty dinner and got back in time to see the sunset right before landing in port.

We absolutely loved our experience with Holo Holo Charters! We did the tour out to the forbidden island and it was truly a trip of a lifetime. From the absolutely picturesque Napoli coast to all the animals we saw, it was incredible. Even with some of the best views in the entire world, we found the staff to be one of the greatest parts of our trip. Captain Cole and his crew were extremely kind and attentive to all of the guests throughout the entire day trip. Their knowledge of everything that was seen was wonderfully unique and personal. The food throughout the day was honestly better than we expected. Special shout-out to Heather & Jay, who we’re the absolute best! They did everything they possibly could to keep us all smiling and happy throughout the day. Can’t wait to come back and do the sunset tour with Holo Holo!!

Best boat tour EVER !! The captain took his time let us see some whales and dolphins then continued the journey even backed up Into a cave … food was great staff was amazing 👍Highly recommended!! Thank you for an amazing experience 🤙

This tour company proves again a FABULOUS tour……..3rd tour w/ this company. Captain Wendell and his crew Zoey & Kai made the tour pleasant and enjoyable. The Leila was well-kempt. The food & beverages were plentiful & good quality. This tour/sea allowed Captain Wendell to cruise further north up the Napali Coast……first time seeing this area. All in all this company & tour has never disappointed & provided quality service.

What an awesome experience, we had a brochure kind of day with all the marine life we saw. The crew was exceptional and so was the food. Would highly recommend this tour, you never know what you’re going to encounter swimming alongside the boat.

Had a fabulous time with Captain Wendell, John, James, and Heather. Best snorkeling I’ve ever experienced. The sights were breathtaking and the crew was so fun, personable, and very attentive. The highlight of our trip. I highly recommend Holo Holo charters.

Excellent service and attention from the staff, they were very knowledgeable and safety was their rule number one. The food and drinks were really good, and the tour covered a wide area.

Definitely a highlight of our trip, the sunset dinner cruise was outstanding and definitely a must. Very attentive crew, knowledgeable and friendly, they went above and beyond our expectations and made this an unforgettable experience. The food was delicious and a good selection of drinks available. The Na Pali coast is a must-see!

Newbie to Hawaii, highlight of our trip
From start to finish this was an amazing adventure. The scenery was breathtaking. Being able to go inside the caves, and go under a waterfall was pretty incredible too. The buffett was delicious, and plenty as well. The captain and staff did a fantastic job. Even our 18 & 16 year old raved about this tour. Would definitely recommend Holo Holo Charters for your Napoli Coast sunset tour.

Great experience!
Had the best time, with a super fun crew. All three boys were a blast, and extremely knowledgeable of the ocean and the island. Have great tips and so fun to be around. Stunning views of the island. Saw some dolphins and stood at the bow of the ship under a waterfall off the island. Zero complaints! Great food too .

Fantasic Day
An incredible experience! The highlight was snorkeling at Ni’ihau (which only Holo Holo Charters take you to) – a monk seal swam straight to me and just stared for a few moments, slowly turned over and leisurely swam away! So cool. Plus there were tons of colourful fish and great visibility. The crew were amazing. The vessel is very well laid out – including little nooks for everyone to store their bags out of the way. If you want to see Na Pali coast and do some snorkeling, definitely go with Holo Holo Charters!

Incredible Experience!
The team that took us on the tour was top notch. My wife and I did the sunset tour option. They were so fun and made it a priority to interact with everyone on the boat. They brought around food and drinks and were constantly checking in to see if anyone needed a refill or anything else. They were very hardworking and made it a special trip. They went above and beyond to ensure that everyone had a great time. Ended the tour with a beautiful sunset accompanied with some champagne. Highly recommend them and hope we can do another tour with them in the future!
