Kevin's Activity Tips:

The Na Pali coastline is truly breathtaking ... because of the scenic beauty and 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 for 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???"

Some Sailing Catamarans in Hawaii are really just power catamarans that happen to have a mast and sail that is more ornamental than functional. We've seen masts and sails that consistently go unused on many tours. This definitely is NOT the case with Leila. She is a true sailing catamaran with great sailing performance and they will sail on every tour if conditions are right!
