Kauai’s Na Pali Coast is simply amazing


Touring Kauai’s Na Pali Coast was like stepping into a surreal postcard. Its cathedral-like cliffs and meandering valleys transported us back to how the island first appeared to its early inhabitants. The only way to get an up-close look at this magnificent scenery is by boat, and fortunately, Holo Holo Charters offers TWO incredible ways to explore the majestic coastal features and the seascape that surrounds it.


Our first outing was on the 65′, 950 hp Holo Holo Power Catamaran. What an experience this boat is considered the fastest and one of the most comfortable tour boats on Kauai. It’s the only charter boat that offers daily tours to both the Na Pali Coast and Forbidden Island of Niihau. Since travel time was reduced due to the boat’s speed, we spent much more time snorkeling and exploring Niihau’s vast network of reefs. Holo Holo provided all our snorkel gear and instruction. The only things we brought were our swimsuits, towels, sunscreen, and camera. Holo Holo provided the rest including catered food and refreshments.

We had so much fun on our first tour that we decided to go again with Holo Holo Charters. This time, we opted for a more leisurely journey and booked a romantic sunset cruise on the Leila, Holo Holo Charter’s custom-built 50′ sailing catamaran. This vessel was created for the utmost in a true trade wind sailing adventure. Sipping mai tais, eating a gourmet dinner and cruising the Na Pali Coast at 18 knots was a vacation experience unparalleled.

The owners of Holo Holo Charters built Holo Holo and Leila specifically for Hawaiian waters, and the comfort provided on each boat is amazing quality food, beverages, freshwater showers, bathrooms, even water slides for the kids. We couldn’t imagine a better way to explore all that Kauai’s spectacular waters have to offer.
