WARNINGS:  Know Before You Go

Kauai Boat tours are moderate thrilling ocean rides, even on a short tour the route can get bouncy so we recommend preventatives be taken well in advance for the motion and we guarantee you may get wet.  Although very active at this time of year, Humpback whales are on the move all the time up and down the island so we do have to look for them and they may not be readily found unless they want to be.

No Smoking is permitted on board the boat, the dock or at the office by law.

For a smoother ride try our catamaran tours.


Passenger safety is our top priority, therefore we take no pregnant women or those with serious health concerns, recent surgery, or history of back, knee or hip problems on any of our ocean tours.
