Journey aboard Holoholo’s 65-foot high speed specially designed powercat for a 7 hour supertour of the Na Pali coastline and the island of Ni‘ihau. The rugged beauty of this area is truly a sight to behold! Witness sea caves, waterfalls that drop from hanging valleys to the ocean below, and see the Na Pali coast trail and the remote beaches that mark this pristine wilderness area. After enjoying the Na Pali, your real adventure begins! The boat crosses the channel to the forbidden and mysterious island of Ni‘ihau. On the crossing it is common to encounter dolphins and melon-headed whales! Upon arriving at Ni‘ihau the boat stops for snorkeling at Lehua Rock, an islet on the northern tip. This volcanic caldera provides crystal-clear water for snorkeling. Sometimes larger sea life can be seen swimming on the bottom almost a hundred feet below!

The Ni‘ihau Supertour has an early morning start time and leaves too early for day 1 in port. The return time is too late for day 2 in port. We recommend that you do a Molokini Snorkel Tour while you are on Maui, or the Hula Kai Snorkel Tour in Kona.


Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

“Supertour” is an apt description for this adventure. No other trip will allow you to see and do so much in one day! When I went out on this tour I saw two different types of dolphins, melon headed whales, snorkeled with a Hawaiian monk seal, watched a school of mahi mahi frolic just a few yards away from the boat … I could go on and on. Generally, I find the Na Pali coast trips to be outstanding for sightseeing but the snorkeling isn’t all that great. With this tour you get to see the beauty of the Na Pali AND combine it with wonderful snorkeling at Lehua. I’ve never been on a tour where I saw so much diversity in terms of large marine animals.

This tour does NOT actually stop and land at Ni‘ihau. You do get some nice views of the island from just off-shore. You get a much better feel for the geography of Ni‘ihau when you see it from this perspective.

I highly recommend this tour but, and I repeat BUT … the channel crossing on the way back to Kauai can get rough. They do not allow anyone who is pregnant, has neck or back injuries, or is under the age of 6 on this tour.
