Holo Holo Ni’ihau Forbidden Island Snorkel

Duration: 7 hr Location: Port Allen More Seasonal Specials

Ni'ihau Forbidden Island Snorkel Cruise

After sightseeing and hearing the history of the Napali Coast you will head across the channel to the “Forbidden Island” of Ni’ihau. You will arrive at Ni’ihau & we’ll choose our forbidden island snorkel spot. The crew will assist and instruct you in snorkeling—relax, float, and watch the comings and goings of the aquatic world. No other place in Hawaii offers you such unique formations,  you will have the opportunity to see Ni’ihau and Lehua up close and personal. Ni’ihau’s old age means it has been shaped and carved by ocean currents and waves the longest of all the Hawaiian Islands. With almost zero annual rainfall the snorkeling off the coast of Ni’ihau is unparalleled.

A 65’ Catamaran powered by twin 430HP diesel engines. Designed for speed & comfort, we’ll get you to the beautiful sights of the Napali & Ni’ihau faster & smoother. Holo Holo’s design is wide enough to eliminate any long side-to-side rolling motion and the hulls are narrow to slice easily through the water, resulting in a smooth ride. She can carry 65, but kept to 49 or less, which means more room to sight-see, snorkel, relax and enjoy all that Kauai has to offer.
