These tours, dependent on the season, tend to book up a week in advance because they accommodate only 15 passengers on their rigid hull raft.  I highly recommend that you consider advance reservations.  If you prefer a catamaran, you have the option to go on their new 60' cat that offers a raft beach landing for a limited 15 passengers (ocean permitting), while the others on board are snorkeling off the boat. Please be advised  that parents should use their disgression in regard to their children in choosing the type of vessel.  For the rafts the cut off age is 5 years old.  The raft experience is more physically challenging than a tour on a catamaran.

Mahalos-Feedback: Aloha, Lilikoi! We had a wonderful vacation on Kauai! It was hours of relaxation punctuated by the exciting excursions you arranged for us. Our sunset dinner sail and whalewatch was spectacular as well. We saw more than 50 whales. 

Once again, mahalo for all your help. Bob and Janet Lefevre

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.
