Kauai - Niihau Snorkel Tour

 


 

 

Adults $195.00; Children 6-12 $139, no children under 6

NOTE: The Niihau Supertour will not be available from 11/29-12/21/2013 because the boat will be in maintenance dry dock.

Journey aboard Holoholo's 65-foot high speed powercat specially designed for this 7 hour supertour of the Na Pali coastline and the island of Niihau. Check-in is at 6:00am at the Holoholo office one block from the Port Allen small boat harbor on the south shore of Kauai. A continental breakfast is served as you enjoy the cruise up to the spectacular Na Pali coastline. 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 Niihau. On the crossing it is common to encounter dolphins and melon-headed whales! Upon arriving at Niihau the boat stops for snorkeling at Lehua Rock, an islet on the northern tip of Niihau. 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!

 

Snorkel gear is provided, and a deli lunch and beverages are served. After you are done snorkeling the boat features an open bar for beer, wine, and champagne. 

 

Because the ocean is typically calmest early in the morning, this tour has a checkin around 6:15am (exact time varies slightly with the seasons; see your email confirmation for exact time). This is a long tour ... about 7 hours in length. The channel crossing can be rough; no pregnant woman, no one with neck or back injuries, and no children under 6 are permitted.

 

Advanced reservations are necessary!

 

A credit card number is required to guarantee a reservation with Holoholo Charters. A 25% deposit will be charged on this tour by Hawaii Travel and Tours and the balance of the tour cost will be paid at check in.

CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS

The Niihau 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

"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 frolick 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 larger marine animals.

This tour does NOT actually stop and land at Niihau. You do get some nice views of the island from just off-shore. You get a much better feel for the geography of Niihau 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.
