Power Boat: The 65’ power catamaran is the largest, fastest, most stable watercraft on Kauai. Designed and built on Kauai for Hawaiian waters, no detail was overlooked in its creation. The structure was built wide and low in order to create stability and contains a narrow reinforced hull shape to slice gracefully through the waves at high speed. Bathrooms are located on the deck, easily accessible by all with walk-in access. A fully shaded cabin with large ventilated windows allows shelter from the elements and storage for your gear. With two large 450 horsepower motors this boat is designed to get you to the fun faster with safety and comfort as the priority. This boat is licensed to carry 65 passengers, but we cap our guest count at 49.


Are you in good physical condition, with no major illness or injury that would allow you to go on a back country boat tour? Although safety records for these types of trip are very good, most water tours bring you far way from medical attention on Kauai. It is important to choose a tour that fits you as an individual.

Are you ready for an adventure? ActivityKauai.Com is a guide run operation and we do our best to get you accurate information. The goal is always to get the right person to the right tour.

As long as you’re ready for the ride, your professional crew has seen it all; safety is their number one concern. Don’t miss this remarkable experience!

Do you suffer from severe seasickness? Usually an over the counter medication, when taken properly, will combat seasickness. But some are just not made to be out on the ocean(there are many great Kauai tours inland that involve water sport). Please be honest about your individual conditions.The crew will do their best to make your trip the most comfortable. No refunds for seasickness.

Do you love boating on the ocean, seeing wildlife, exploring remote coastlines, and adventuring? This is the trip for you. A 7 hour Napali and Niihau tour is an experience of a lifetime for any true water person!
