About Us

Our family-owned and operated charter business has been well known in Hawaii for over the last 30 years. Our goal is to provide an Aloha experience for those visiting Kauai. We hope to instill respect for the island’s cultural significance as well as respect for the marine life in every guest that joins us on our tours.

Kauai Sea Tours is unique among the boat tour operators on Kauai and an originator of Nā Pali coast tours. We are the first to offer both catamaran and raft adventure tours of the Nā Pali Coast. Experience does count and our excellent record sets the standard for Hawaii raft adventures by the US Coast Guard.

Take advantage of our unique special use permits to land the rafts on the Nā Pali Coast for a narrated cultural walking tour of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village at Nu’alolo Kai. All tours depart from Port Allen, Eleele, operated by experienced USCG licensed boat captains and skilled crew who are educated about Kauai wildlife, conservation, and history.

Exhilarating Ride Raft Adventure

The raft ride was exhilarating but surprisingly comfortable. It rained a bit but they were ready with rain jackets. It only added to the fun and quickly passed. We saw tons of spinner dolphins, went into a cave and did a fun turn-about, and snorkeled on our way back. Highly recommend.

Go For It! Raft/Snorkel Adventure

I have hiked Napali for years, but this was the first time via water and it was amazing! A MUST SEE & DO for those wanting a more adventurous and remote experience. Great crew and captain- good vibes, history, stories & views. I'll be back to book another trip! Thanks for some valuable memories and experiences.

A Must-Do Catamaran Tour

I’m a Custom-Adventure-Tour guide on Kauai. I specialize in only the best. Even though I live on Kauai, I still take a catamaran tour of Na Pali coast at least once a year. This company offers the best catamaran tour available! If you can, make sure to book a tour that has Captain Kauai at the helm, as he is the best of the best. Aloha!

A Blast! Snorkeling Tour

My first time snorkeling and I had a blast! The crew was personable, professional, and even offered me prescription goggles. This was a solo activity for me and I met some very nice people. Everyone had a great time. I saw dolphins, a tortoise, and fish that I used to have in my fish tank some years back. I look forward to doing it again on my next trip!

Beautiful Catamaran Tour

Picturesque views of the coast, great information on the history of the area, and amazing wildlife!We saw too many whales to count, turtles and spinner dolphins. The crew provided a fun and safe experience for people of all ages. There were several people on the boat that had been on the same tour multiple times before.

Well Worth It Whale Watching

This was probably my favorite of all the tours I did in Kauai (..and I did a lot!).Very fun and upbeat, but also relaxing. We saw so many whales and lots of spinner dolphins. The views are second to none. We couldn’t do the Na Pali Coast due to high winds and waves. So worth your time to do this tour!Shout out to the captain and guys ROCKED!

Amazing & Memorable Snorkeling Tour

The tour and snorkeling were great, but what made this a memorable trip was the amazing crew! Their knowledge and service was impeccable and amongst the best I've seen (we make it a point to tour/snorkel everywhere we go around the world). Perfect balance of safety and experience. Thank you crew, I highly recommend Kauai Sea Tours!

Excellent Adventure Snorkeling Tour

We had an excellent time! Would recommend for sure when visiting Kauai. Captain Greg and our crew were amazing. We were re-routed the day of our trip due to high winds and not safely getting us to Napali, but they still made the trip memorable and fun! Scenery and wildlife were the best, would've been happy with just that.
