Napali Boat Tours from Hanalei

April- October, the winter swell goes down and we’re able to offer Napali Coast boat tours that leave out of Hanalei. In fact, Holo Holo Charters is proud to hold Kauai’s only two legal permits for raft boat tours departing from Hanalei. Let’s hear it for options and convenience!

Choosing one of our Napali Adventure & Snorkel Tours out of Hanalei will save our guests staying in Hanalei, Princeville, and Kilauea hours of drive time. And if you’re staying on the east, south, or west side of the island, a boat tour out of Hanalei is a fabulous excursion you can do as part of an entire north shore mission.

Our two rigid-hull inflatable boats (RHIB) Adventurer II and Adventurer III were designed and built specifically for these summertime day trips up the Napali Coast. Our 40’ longboats have channeled fiberglass hulls that cut through waves efficiently, offering much more comfort than Zodiac-style rafts. We get to the fun faster– reaching speeds of up to 30 knots—leaving us more time for snorkeling and sightseeing and just enjoying all the amazing sea caves, waterfalls, wildlife, and rainbows that Napali has to offer.

Our boats are big enough to offer creature comforts like forward-facing seats and bathrooms, yet small enough to get right up into the sea caves and under the waterfalls.

As far as snorkeling, our Captains know all the best spots to go on any given day, and we have all the gear (masks, fins, snorkels, and flotation devices) you need. Our crew members are there to provide guidance and helpful tips and to be your lifeguards in the water. Safety first!

After snorkeling, you can rinse off with our freshwater shower and we’ll have some lunch before heading back to iconic Hanalei Bay, where you can enjoy the rest of the day on the beach or in town.

Our Napali Adventure & Snorkel boat tours out of Hanalei run every morning and every afternoon, Monday through Saturday, from April through September, and each takes a maximum of twenty-five passengers.

Keep this wet and wild excursion in mind for your celebration, wedding, business event, or any other private charter!
