    Seeing the humpback whales, snorkeling, EVERYTHING! It was great! Staff was very knowledgeable and kind.
    An amazing boat trip
    Meg_J, Jan 2023
    This trip exceeded our lofty expectations and left them in the dust. Fantastic time with an exceptional crew to magnificent settings. Oh, and I rarely bother with reviews! But… this was too good not to testify.
    Best ever Hawaiian excursion!
    Lynda_P, Jan 2023
    Beautiful scenery! That’s why we scheduled this excursion. Bonus: Dolphins, Whales doing back flips out of the water. Crew so attentive. Captain interacts with passengers. A+++! Organized no delays in getting us snorkeling, feeding us, bringing us anything to drink. If you love to snorkel, don’t skip it because it is slightly cool at 7:30 am.
    Must see experience
    Sean_R, Dec 2022
    Great experience. The crew was exceptional and the views of the Kauai/Na Pali coast are a must see when on the island.
    An adventure to remember!
    Chris_H, Dec 2022
    The whole thing was an adventure - choppy seas, so getting around the boat was a fun challenge. Several seasick passengers, so there's that... Saw spinner & bottle-nose dolphins by the hundreds, plus humpback whales. Na Pali was awesome, of course, although the snorkeling there wasn't that great (too deep and too choppy). My only recommendation would be better snorkel gear - not the greatest. The food was pretty amazing, considering the circumstances. Great breakfast and great lunch. All personnel were awesome - professional, friendly and informative.
    Great time well spent.
    Roger_J, Dec 2022
    The crew were great. Many good stories of past events and historical Hawaiian information. We saw a huge pod of dolphins, whales frolicking. Overall a wonderful experience.
    Take this excursion, no regrets.
    Chris_K, Dec 2022

    Bucket List Excursion

    Captain Kelly and her crew did an excellent job hosting and sailing our charter trip, super friendly, accommodating, and had great island knowledge to share. The sceneries were STUNNING, really no words to describe!! Captain Kelly stopped for dolphin watching, stopped at the waterfalls and cave. We were lucky to experience some sailing.
    Amazing views
    Diego_C, Oct 2022
    Amazing view of the Napali coastline! Service was outstanding and the food was well prepared. The snorkeling was pretty good however visabilty was average as a result of wind and surf
    Wonderful experience
    Shannon_M, Oct 2022
    This was an absolutely amazing experience. My husband and I had so much fun. The crew was so kind and accommodating. The breakfast and lunch that was served was delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed the snorkeling and the time spent by the beautiful Na Pali coast. We highly recommend and would go again!
    Awesome staff made it a fun experience!
    Jeanne_L, Oct 2022
    The staff and Captain Max was awesome. Unfortunately, there was less than preferred conditions, so we weren’t able to snorkel as much as we’d like. Safety first though! Meals and drinks were excellent. Zoey was so sweet and generous with providing us recommendations for the island and we hit almost every one. Would definitely book with them again.
    Sandra_T, Sep 2022
    Captain Kelly and the crew, Chelsea and Gabe were incredible! The food was delicious, the guided tour was fantastic and snorkeling was awesome! Highly recommend Holo holo and I would request capt Kelly 😍
    Eco Adventure!
    Allison_C, Sep 2022
    It took me hours of reading and researching which company to tour with to see the Na Pali Coast and I ended up choosing Holo Holo Charters for their sustainability efforts and unique catamaran, Leila (complete with waterslide), plus breakfast, lunch and complimentary alcohol (after snorkeling). The crew treated everyone as friends and also made sure that we all were safe. A few people hadn't snorkeled before so Zoe was in the water with them to give tips and would reassure them they were doing great and felt comfortable - it was super sweet to see such kindness and compassion. And Captain Kelly is a rockstar with how she navigated the choppy waters and entertained us with her humor, stories and professional hosing skills (haha she sprays down the waterslide when you go down it). After snorkeling (only one stop for about 45 minutes), you'll see a few waterfalls, caves, and stop for photos where the crew offers to take them for you (no selfies needed). It does sound cliche, but this truly is one of those trips of a lifetime that so many people only dream of seeing. Life is about experiences and this one will stay with you forever.
    Totally recommend

    This was an amazing experience. The crew members and Captain made the trip fun and exciting. The food was good and I felt safe and comfortable the whole trip.
    As You Like It
    Steven_P, Sep 2022
    It was fun to sit in the bow and get wet from the spray, while others had room to sit in the more protected cabin. I appreciated that the staff trusted us to move around the boat as we wished, always holding on with care. Captain and staff were great!
    Nice snorkeling
    Gordon_W, Sep 2022
    Great crew, food was very good. Snorkeling was fun. Napoli coast was beautiful and worth the trip. Do not eat until after you snorkel. The ocean was choppy. Bring your Dramamine.
    Experience of a lifetime
    Matthew_S, Sep 2022
    Snorkeling was great, but be prepared for a decent trip there and back. Captain Jess and crew were really friendly and informative.
    Turtles, dolphins, views and food!
    Taelor_H, Aug 2022
    My family and I loved snorkeling with the turtles! We saw a few dolphins on the way! We also loved the food and beverages they provided. They were very prepared with all snacks and food. It was a beautiful day to be sailing! We would definitely do this again!
