Holo Holo Charters - Napali Snorkel Adventure (From Hanalei)

Enjoy a fun snorkel adventure along Kauai's majestic Na Pali Coast, often called the "jewel of Kauai." This picture-perfect stretch of coastline is undeveloped, so there is nothing to spoil the view. The offshore coral reefs are spectacular and the water is so clear that you'll get the feeling you're swimming in a giant aquarium.

This snorkel cruise departs from Hanalei Bay. From here, you'll first take a shuttle boat that will take you to the rigid hull inflatable raft, which is anchored just offshore. After a "dry transfer" to the raft, the journey along one of Hawaii's most beautiful coastlines begins.

As you travel along the coast, keep an eye out for green sea turtles, dolphins and flying fish. Your captain and crew will share stories of the Hawaiians who once lived along the Na Pali Coast. Depending on the ocean conditions the day of your tour, there will be a stop at one of several protected and shallow areas where you can jump into the water and snorkel (all snorkeling equipment will be provided). The crew will be happy to provide instructions for novice snorkelers. After your snorkel adventure, you'll be served a delicious sandwich lunch before heading back to Hanalei Bay.

Tour Highlights:

  • Snorkel cruise along the Na Pali Coast with departure from Hanalei Bay
  • Fantastic views and plenty of great photo opportunities of the Na Pali Coast's dramatic cliffs, sea caves, waterfalls and remote beaches

Special Instructions
Where and When:
Check in at 7:00 am or 7:30 am at the Tahiti Nui Restaurant in Hanalei. Please arrive 10 minutes before check-in. View Map
From the Tahiti Nui check-in location, guests will be shuttled from Tahiti Nui to the Hanalei Bay Pavilion (about a mile from Tahiti Nui). From here, it is a short walk to the Hanalei Pier (guests will be escorted by a staff member). Footwear will be removed, and all guests will embark on Holo Holo Charter's dinghy, which will shuttle them to the vessel moored in the bay. Guests may get wet up to their knees so best to avoid wearing long pants.
Tour returns at 12:00 pm or 12:30 pm.
Parking at Tahiti Nui is limited and carpooling or a taxi/shuttle service is recommended. Arriving early for parking is suggested too.
Please expect delays when driving in and out of Hanalei. Also there is no parking allowed on Kuhio Highway.
Due to vessel transfers guests should be prepared to wade in the water and be able to assist themselves onto tour vessel.
No expectant mothers.
Children must be 6 years or older.
No guests with pacemakers or defibrillators.
You must bring your prescribed medication with you (i.e. inhalers, epipens, diabetic medication or other daily meds).
Guests should be able to assist themselves onto tour vessel from a dinghy or water.
Non-swimmers are not allowed in the water.
Full face snorkel masks are not allowed due to them not being deemed safe. You must use a traditional 2-piece snorkel & mask set which will be provided or you can bring your own.
Guests should be able to assist themselves onto tour vessel. Not recommended for individuals who have or have had back problems, recent injuries or surgeries, or suffer from severe motion sickness (no refunds are given for sea sickness). Seasickness is best prevented with an over-the-counter remedy.
No smoking of any kind on board the vessel or on the dock.
Drones/unmanned aircraft are not allowed on board the vessel
This is an adventure. Ocean conditions can vary and may turn rough at times. It may not be suitable for some folks (all physically challenged individuals are subject to captain’s discretion). Snorkeling depends on ocean conditions. We do not land on shore.
Spray-on/aerosol sunscreen is a safety hazard and may not be used on board the vessel. We encourage using reef-friendly sunscreens.
All Holo Holo tours are "bare-foot" - passengers will need to remove their shoes prior to boarding. Only orthopedic/diabetic exceptions will be made at Captain's direction.
All tour routes and destinations are subject to change without notice. Ocean conditions can and will sometimes turn rough. Cancelled tours by Holo Holo Charters are fully refundable or gladly rescheduled.

Holo Holo vessels are equipped with sensitive marine heads (toilets) that will clog if any foreign objects are flushed. If you flush something other than what your body produces and the toilet paper we provide, you may be responsible for the cost of repair.
Special Notes:
Fins, goggles (with corrective lenses if you need them), snorkels and flotation aids are all provided.
Expect to get some sea spray on this high speed raft tour. Passing rain showers are not uncommon on the Na Pali Coast. Plan to dress accordingly.
Operation Days:
Daily from May through mid-October
4 hours
