Napali Coast Sunset Dinner Boat Tour
If you’re on a mission to witness the awesomeness of the Napali Coast, and you want to be on a comfortable boat, enjoying quality food and beverages while you do so, come aboard our spacious & sporty catamaran Holoholo for the Napali Sunset Cruise. Whether you’ve been a dozen times, or this is your first, the Sunset Cruise is an excellent way to level-up your evening plans and turn dinner, drinks, and sunset into a beautiful adventure!
We’ll be riding in comfort and style on Holoholo, our company’s namesake vessel that was designed and built here on Kauai, by our company’s founder and crew. She’s a boss boat– stable, powerful, and meticulously maintained for efficiency, safety, and comfort. Holoholo has a low center of gravity, so there’s less rocking and rolling than on more top-heavy, double decker tour boats– a feature our guests appreciate!
They say it’s the journey and not the destination, but Napali might be the exception to the rule—Kauai’s northwest coast is truly something to behold. We always find ourselves saying, “It never gets old,” because the Napali Coast has a way of humbling us with her magnificence, every single day. It’s the rainbows and the dolphins and the way the Cathedrals break through low-lying clouds. It’s the waterfalls, and the birds flying through Honopu Arch. Even when conditions aren’t “perfect”, Napali always seems to have a way of showing the love and making the trip special.
Indeed, in this case, it’s hard to beat the destination. That said, we’ll do our best to make the journey unforgettable too!
When it comes to service, we go for food and beverage menus that are refreshing, Hawaii-inspired, delicious, satisfying, and easy-to-eat. We’ve got juices, sodas, domestic & Hawaii craft beers, hard seltzers, red & white wine, sparkling wine, and our signature Koloa Rum Mai Tai. We serve meats & cheeses, crackers, and fresh veggies with dips to start, and for the main course—fresh pineapple, garden salad, somen noodle salad, rice, teriyaki chicken, and roasted veggies with tofu. Our balanced, colorful meals are prepared every day by our local caterers, using whole ingredients. We use reusable linens and service ware, and Holo Holo Charters is the only Kauai tour boat company to be certified an Ocean Friendly Restaurant by the Surfrider Foundation.
Chances are we’ll see some ocean wildlife while we’re out there; Hawaiian spinner dolphins, flying fish, green sea turtles, and pelagic sea birds are commonly seen on our Kauai sunset tours, year-round! And from December through April– it’s whale season, when thousands of North Pacific Humpback Whales migrate over 3,000 miles from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska to the warm waters of Hawaii, to mate and calve. As part of their mating rituals, curiosity, and propensity to “show off” to humans, we’re often treated to dramatic breaches, tail slapping, and other fascinating behaviors, such as spy hopping.
On the way to and from the majestic Napali Coast, we’ll pass the towns of Waimea and Kekaha, the Pacific Missile Range Facility, Barking Sands Beach, and Hawaii’s longest beach– Polihale Beach. Your captain will provide narration– history, interesting facts, information, and legends about the island—and our crew members will be at your service at all times, answering questions, taking pictures, refilling drinks, bringing you a plate, walking you to the bathroom, etc.
We have our Kauai Coffee Coconut Caramel Crunch Brownies for dessert and offer a sparkling wine toast at sunset—we’re fully treating ourselves today!
Bring layers on this tour—you might want to soak up some sun at the start, but it will be getting dark by the time we return to the dock in Port Allen. As a rule of thumb, bring a jacket with you on all of your Kauai activities and adventures. The weather here is notoriously variable!
The Napali Sunset Cruise is a terrific choice for both Kauai locals and visitors that want to elevate their happy hour/dinner/sunset plans by getting out on a nice boat and enjoying an evening in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. With dinner, dessert, and drinks included, the Napali Sunset Cruise offers a lot of value and will leave you smiling and satisfied.

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. If you are joining us during our winter season November – March, tours can be more often impacted by weather. 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 (availability permitting), or cancel your tour at no charge if it is weather-related. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 808-335-0815 so we can help create the best experience for you and your family!
Holo Holo: Our 65' Power Catamaran
Holo Holo is Kauai’s fastest tour vessel. At 65′, this agile power cat is long and wide enough to give you a swift, adventurous ride even at her top speeds. She’ll get you to the Napali Coast or Niihau faster than anyone else! She can carry 65, but we keep the numbers to 49 or less, which means more room to sightsee, snorkel, relax, and enjoy all that Kauai has to offer. Built with safety and comfort in mind, Holo Holo’s design is wide enough to eliminate any long, side-to-side rolling motion, and the hulls are narrow to slice easily through the water, resulting in a smooth ride. And Holo Holo was designed and built specifically to handle the channel waters that separate the islands. With twin 450 hp turbo diesel engines for propulsion, we get you to the beautiful sights of Napali and Niihau faster than any other vessel. – Learn more.
“An experience of a lifetime. The Captain and his crew were knowledgeable and helpful. We were able to go under a waterfall and get breathtaking pictures of the coastline.“
