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 floatation—and professional instruction to make sure you have a great time in the water.

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.
“We’ve been on many paid-tours, and I’m not sure we’ve ever had a more enthusiastic, helpful, fun and funny crew – they seemed to be having as much fun as we were!“
