“We booked an exclusive raft tour for my birthday. I had an absolute blast. Just my family and 3 freinds making a total of 6 of us. The captain and crew let us choose what we wanted to do on our adventure. They gave us their experienced suggestion too which we more often than not went with. They were able to accommodate our whole tour with a vegan menu for snacks and lunch. This was the best birthday I have ever had and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is trying to plan a special day”

bEACHES AND CAVES IN KAUAI

★★★★★ Yelp

“Unbelievable day with Shawn and Jamie on a 24’ raft. Darting in and out of caves, snorkeling off a beach where we toured and learned about ancient Hawaiian customs and history; witnessing breathtaking views and even seeing some dolphins playing in the crystal clear water. Everyone on the boat had a blast.”

About Us

Kauai Sea Tours launched as Hanalei Sea Tours in 1986 with five employees and a few ridge hull boats.

Today, we’re one of Kauai’s oldest and best known boat tour companies, safely ferrying over 1.2 million customers along the Na Pali Coastline and on whale watching tours.

From our modest beginnings, we’ve grown our Kauai Sea Tours family to more than 70 members, including the most respected captains, crew, mechanics, and customer care professionals in the industry. Many of our captains and guides have been with us for many years.

We pride ourselves on offering the best tour experience on Kauai. In 1999, after moving from Hanalei to our current Eleele Harbor location in Port Allen, we added the Lucky Lady, our 60-foot, two-deck luxury catamaran. In 2019, we completed our fleet with the acquisition of the Imiloa Express, a 1,000 horsepower, 40-foot Power Cat that is one of the fastest boats on Kauai. Our ridge hull boats continue to offer high-speed tours to special permit beach landings and in and out of the amazing Na Pali sea caves.

In addition to earning our five-star reviews every day, we strive to maintain our perfect safety record. Every one of our more than 1.2 million passengers since 1986 has returned safely to harbor. This is no accident- pun intended. Our boats are maintained to United States Coast Guard requirements and pass rigorous, regular inspections. Our captains and crew maintain all U.S.C.G. licenses and have years of sea faring experience.

When we’re not busy making lifetime memories for our guests, we’re contributing to our local community. We support many worthy local non-profits including but not limited to the YMCA of Kauai, Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital, Kauai Senior Center, Walk MS Kauai and Women In Need.

Kauai Sea Tours has been a proud provider to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for decades. Anytime a child with a life threatening illness has made their wish to see the Na Pali Coast or see Humpback Whales, we’ve been thrilled to fulfill that child’s wish.

We hope you and your family decide to join ours for a memorable tour, sail, snorkel or raft adventure.

Until then (a hui hou),

Darren Paskal

General Manager
