Napali Snorkel Adventure
Departing from beautiful Hanalei Bay on Kauai's North Shore, this summer tour maximizes time on the Napali Coast and includes snorkeling at a remote location with more Hawaiian fish than you'll be able to count. 
The Adventurer is a super-fast, modern, rigid-hull inflatable boat. Not to be confused with a Zodiac-type rubber raft, she’s 40’ RHIB with a channeled fiberglass hull that cuts through the waves. Twin 225hp outboard motors allow for a top speed up to 30 knots! This high speed, combined with our unique North Shore departure brings the Napali Coast into view just minutes after we leave Hanalei Bay.

Request Exclusive Charters (2-28 People)

A perfect platform for snorkeling, Ocean Adventurer has two water-level entry points with dive ladders. We provide snorkels, masks (with corrective lenses if needed), fins and flotation aids on our Napali Snorkel Adventure. After snorkeling, rinse yourself off with our freshwater shower, grab a soda or water and enjoy the sights. With plenty of shade, stadium-style seating for every passenger — and the all-important enclosed marine toilet — this boat is designed for comfort — as well as speed and safety.

Cancellation policy: Within 24 hours and no shows will be assessed a 100% charge.
Join Captain Tara and local marine biologists for an exciting 3 hour snorkel adventure on Kauai's southern shore in Poipu aboard her 24 foot Zodiac "Hurricane", a rigid hull inflatable used by Navy Seals and valued for its quickness and maneuverability. It is certified for 20 passengers. You are in good hands with Captain Tara - she has a Masters License from The US Coast Guard. She is also a Marine Biologist, published underwater photographer and a dive master well acquainted with Hawaiian waters and especially the waters off Poipu's sunny coast. The 3 hour tour departs from Kukuiula Harbor near Spouting Horn. The adventure takes you to 'out of the way' snorkel spots that are accessible only by boat. You will have the opportunity to explore Poipu snorkel spots that others rarely see, and swim with colorful tropical fish and green Sea Turtles. The South Coast of Kauai offers many opportunities to see Dolphins, Flying Fish, and Humpback Whales (in season). You will receive a free underwater photo of your snorkel excursion. The tour includes all snorkel gear and wetsuits. Also, the tour offers a great lunch of gourmet sandwiches (Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, and Veggie) local fruit, Kauai cookies, Hawaiian juices, bottled water and soda.
Please note that afternoon tours are sometimes dependent on seasonal ocean conditions (yes, we do have a winter & summer).  You late risers may be asked to reschedule your event for a morning departure in the winter months.  Be prepared for this possibility.  It is also recommended that you consider making your reservation for boating activities as early to the beginning of your visit to allow for any unforeseen weather cancellations. This will give you a chance to reschedule and not depart Kauai disappointed.

Caution is advised regarding pregnant women and persons with special health concerns.  It is crucial that anyone on board has the physical ability to hold on and walk on board the vessels safely. Please inform us at the time of making a reservation if you are pregnant and/or have a health concern or disability. This will also help to guide you to the best vendor that can accommodate your special needs.  Mahalo!

Tip for those of you who are prone to seasickness.  My son and my husband both avoided boat rides for years because they get very seasick.  We all take motion sickness medication before bedtime the night before our adventure.   Check with your physicians for what they recommend.  Being prepared will enhance your experience!   * A popular local remedy is pickled or preserved ginger root, some even drink the tea.

Check-in times are subject to change seasonally.  Please call upon your arrival to verify your event check-in times  and it is a good idea to call for a weather check.

Rates, tours, & times are subject to change seasonally. Please also note that each vendor sets their own taxes accordingly and no percentages are the same.  Some include the harbor & dock fees, in addition to their excise tax within their rates & others add them after.

Many popular activities are sold out days, weeks, or very often months in advance year around. Mahalo Nui Loa ... There are NO added fees & No Deposits required for booking assistance. If you wish to phone (808 821-1000) me directly, the current time in Hawaii is displayed below, along with the current Kauai temperature.
