Holo Holo Charters - Na Pali Niihau Snorkeling Supertour
This premiere trip aboard the Holo Holo begins with a continental breakfast while you head west & north to the majestic Na Pali Coast with waterfalls, lush valleys, and sea caves.
After sightseeing and hearing the history of the Coast we will head across the channel to the “Forbidden Island” of Niihau. You'll arrive at Niihau and we'll choose our snorkel spot. Our caring crew will assist and instruct you in snorkeling—relax, float, and watch the comings and goings of the aquatic world. No other place in Hawaii offers you such unique formations. Niihau’s old age means it has been shaped and carved by ocean currents and waves the longest of all the Hawaiian Islands.
After snorkeling, enjoy a gourmet deli-style buffet lunch. Choose from a variety of deli meats, cheeses, veggies and breads to make your sandwich a work of art! Also included are pasta and fresh fruits. Assorted soft drinks are served throughout the tour, with beer and wine served after snorkeling. While you are eating we talk story about the island, the people and history of Niihau.

- HoloHolo Charters
- The Holo Holo is a 65-foot power catamaran and Kauai's fastest tour vessel. She can carry 65 passengers, but this tour is limited to 45 passengers or less, which means more room to sightsee and relax. Built with safety and comfort in mind, Holo Holos design is wide enough to eliminate any long, side-to-side rolling motion. The hulls are narrow to slice easily through the water, resulting in a smooth ride. The Holo Holo is equipped with two heads (bathrooms) located on deck (no need to climb or descend a ladder to use the facilities), with ample room to change into your bathing suit in privacy. Holo Holo also boasts a huge shaded cabin with windows that open to allow fresh ocean breezes.
