About Kauai Sea Rider Snorkel & Whale Watching Tours
At team Sea Riders we pride ourselves in what makes us different from other companies. Kauai Sea Riders has been providing specialized small group Zodiac Eco Tours on Kauai since 2005. As a Marine Biologist, I have always focused on providing Eco Tours to our guests – focusing on education while at the same time having a great time. All of our staff are professionally trained and share the same passion and reverence for this amazing ocean environment we get to play in everyday! We choose snorkel locations that aren’t over crowded or common, and you will have a Divemaster guiding your snorkel adventure ensuring you have an exceptional snorkeling experience. At the end of the day, our goal is to have our customers feel that they have been expertly cared for, had an experience of a lifetime, and have learned something new about the ocean and its incredible inhabitants.

Super sun ride. Stopped at 2 perfect snorkel spots; one with lots of turtles and one with lots of fish (and turtles). Saw spouting horn and more. Captain and guides were awesome.

We’re so glad we chose the smaller Zodiac boat tour of the Na Pali coast rather than a larger boat with more people. One of the larger boats left the dock right before us and it must’ve had more than 50 people, while our tour only had 14 people. A Zodiac is what the Navy Seals use so it’s fast and agile, which meant that our tour went into some of the caves along the coast while the bigger boats could only see them from a distance. Captain Adam and Emily did a fantastic job showing us around the Na Pali coast and explaining the history and significance of different places to the native Hawaiians as well as the more recent history. We also saw some beautiful fish while snorkeling. We had thought about hiking along the Na Pali coast which we’ve heard is incredible and difficult, but our family enjoyed being able to see it from the boat. We highly recommend taking this tour with the Kauai Sea Riders!

Our family had an amazing time! Bri is super knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. She addressed all of our concerns and the zodiac boat was a smoother ride than expected. We saw SO many turtles and a variety of fish. They definitely know where the good snorkeling spots are! Mahalo Sea Rider Adventures!

This was an amazing tour. If you're susceptible to motion sickness make sure you take Dramamine beforehand. Captain Nick was very knowledgeable and personable and Sonene made sure everyone was included and helped everyone feel comfortable during the snorkeling part of the trip. They both made you feel like you'd been friends for years. The Napali Coast has amazing views of steep mountain cliffs, verdant isolated valleys, waterfalls, and sea caves. Plus we saw lots of dolphins and sea turtles. Nick and Nen pointed out the spots made familiar in movies as well as historical facts. The four-hour tour flew by too fast! My family and I highly recommend this tour and Nick and Nen as your guides!
