For true trade wind sailing on Kauai join the crew of Holoholo Charters aboard "Leila", a beautiful 48'sailing catamaran. When the winds permit, they sail while having breakfast on the way to the Na Pali Coast. As they head toward your destination the crew will be entertaining your imagination with stories of the Hawaiians who once lived in this beautiful area. Considered to be "The Jewel of Kauai" with 3,000 foot cliffs, green valleys, hidden beaches, secluded waterfalls and breathtaking beauty, the Na Pali coast is a sight to be enjoyed from sea level. Your tour will include a continental breakfast, gourmet deli style buffet lunch, soft drinks, beer, wine and snorkel gear. Check in is at their store in Port Allen. Check in time changes seasonally; summertime is around 6am and wintertime is around 8am. Your email confirmation will give your exact check in time. NOTE: The 5 hour morning tour on Leila is not available from 10/28-11/22/2014 due to maintenance dry dock.

 

For those who are more interested in the scenery of the Na Pali coast than snorkeling, the sunset motor tour is the perfect for you! Sightsee the Napali and experience a Kauai sunset on the water on board Holoholo’s 65' power catamaran. The late afternoon and early evening sun frequently cast a dramatic light upon the majestic cliffs and pinnacles of the Na Pali. On board you will enjoy a scrumptious light meal, soft drinks, beer, wine and champagne at sunset. Checkin for this tour is in the midafternoon and the exact time varies depending on the season.

 

Don't forget about Holoholo's signature trip to the Na Pali and Niihau ... that tour has a page all its own. Check it out by clicking HERE.

 

A credit card number is required to guarantee a reservation with Holoholo Charters, but they do not charge you in advance. A 30% deposit is charged on your credit card 5 days before you come to Hawaii, and the balance is paid at checkin for your tour..

 

Holoholo Charters does not allow pregnant women or people with neck or back injuries on any of their tours!

CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS

The Sunset Motor Tour is available for cruise ship passengers who are on one of the NCL ships that overnight in Nawiliwili. You can do the sunset tour on day 1; You will need a rental car since the check-in location  is about 40 minutes from the cruise ship dock

The Morning Snorkel Tour doesn't work for cruise ship passengers. The departure on day 1 is too early and the return time on day 2 is too late. We recommend doing a snorkel tour on Maui  or Kona instead.  See Molokini Snorkel Tours from Maui and Kona Snorkel Tours on the Hula Kai for more information.

ACTIVITY TIPS

The Na Pali coastline is truly breathtaking ... because of the scenic beauty and wide open ocean exposure, these trips are often better for sightseeing than for snorkeling. This is especially true during winter when this area gets big swells. Sailing catamarans have a wonder feel to them ... and Holoholo's "Leila" is likely to sail at least part of the trip. There is nothing like the silence of cutting through the water without the roar of a diesel engine! Lying on the trampoline at the front of the boat you'll find yourself saying "Job? What job???"

The afternoon trip on the Holoholo powered catamaran has one advantage over the sailing catamarans though ... because this boat doesn't have a mast, it is possible for them to actually pull this large boat inside of some of the sea caves. When I was out with Holoholo, the captain skillfully maneuvered us into one of these caves. As we approached the opening I said to myself, "There is no way this boat is going to fit in there." Two minutes later the sky disappeared and my eyes adjusted to the dim lighting of one of Na Pali's mysterious sea caves. This is possible in summer months, but only infrequently during lulls in the winter swells.

If you are going staying on Kauai for your entire vacation, I'd do one of these morning trips ... or maybe the Holoholo supertour to Niihau (which has the best snorkeling of all the Kauai trips). If you are going to spend some time on Maui or the Big Island I'd do an afternoon sighting tour of the Na Pali while on Kauai, and then do a nice morning snorkel trip on either the Pride of Maui (a Molokini / Turtle Town trip) or the Fairwind (a wonderful snorkel trip that sails from Kona on the Big Island).

The NaPali coast and snorkeling is "conditions permitting" ... while the tours normally go to the NaPali, the captain will select the tour destinations with the comfort and safety of passengers in mind.
