from Leila Catamaran Tours
Holo Holo Charters offers two exciting and unique tours aboard Leila - a spacious and beautiful 50-foot, Kauai-built sailing catamaran. With her sleek construction and design, Leila slips quickly and smoothly through the waters. The catamaran design allows for level sailing. With no more than 10 degrees of “heel,” you won’t be sailing sideways.

Napali Coast Snorkeling & Sailing Tour
Get ready for an activity-filled morning on Holo Holo's excluisve Kauai snorkeling tours, that take you to Kauai's world-famous Napali Coast. Breakfast, lunch, drinks, and snorkel gear are all included in this fun, exciting, action-packed tour for the whole family.

There’s plenty of room to spread out on Leila; you can sit on the benches, lean on the rails or lay out on the nets (weather permitting). Leila also has two bathrooms, for everyone's convenience.

Napali Sunset Sail
Experience the astounding beauty of Napali's 3,500-foot cliffs, cascading waterfalls, sea caves, secluded beaches, and abundant marine and wildlife. Sit back and enjoy a delicious Hawaiian-inspired meal and celebrate the setting of the sun with a sparkling wine toast to wind down an unforgettable Kauai sunset cruise.

Turning off the motors, setting the sails, and letting the power of the wind move us across the ocean, really puts us in touch with our humanity and satisfies our need to explore and adventure.

When the Kauai dinner cruise bell rings, it’s time to enjoy a locally-made meal — pupus (appetizers) to start, followed by a delicious Hawaiian-inspired dinner to fill you up. In the beverage department, Holo Holo can offer you water, soft drinks, juices, or – if you want to kick it up a notch – beer, wine, seltzers, or our Ginger Mai Tai’s made with award-winning, local, Koloa Rum. At sunset, share in a sparkling wine toast to celebrate the beautiful day in paradise!

You’ll find plenty of room to spread out on Leila’s deck and her nets, and there are two restrooms on board for your convenience.

About Leila
Although Leila’s two-hull design is based on a historical prototype, she truly is a modern, state-of-the-art vessel. The space-age epoxy/glass construction used to build Holo Holo was used in making Leila as well. This composite makes for a strong and safe structure. The mast and sail are of the best quality and modern design.

Leila has two entry/exit points for convenient movement on and off the boat while snorkeling. She also has two heads (bathrooms), one located on each side of the boat and are spacious enough to change from “sailing” to “swimming” attire.

Leila has all the modern luxuries and, at 28' wide, there is ample room for lounging. She’s licensed to carry 45 people but is kept down to 37 to give you plenty of space to take in the views.

Frequently Asked Questions about Leila Catamaran Tours

Is parking provided? If so, what is the fee?

Port Allen Departures: Please park your vehicles in Holo Holo Charters' designated gravel parking lot located on the right side of the road after the Port Allen Marina Center. Come into the office located in the Port Allen Marina Center to check in.

Are there any age/physical/health/etc. restrictions for this attraction?

For safety, no pregnant women or children under 5 are allowed on this tour.

What does it mean to be barefoot? 

The deck has a non-slip surface best fitted for bare feet. Flip flops, shoes, water shoes, etc. can grip too much or not enough.

Are we going to get wet? 

Yes. Minimally, you can expect to get some “sea spray” on Holo Holo Charters' Kauai tours. The farther upfront you are on the vessel, the wetter you will get. The driest part of the vessel will be in the covered cabin area.

Are there restrooms on your boat? 

Yes! Leila has two restrooms down in the hull of the vessel.

If I can't swim, will I be able to snorkel? 

It is not recommended to snorkel for non-swimmers. All the snorkel locations are in areas that are over-head deep, so “wading” or standing up on the bottom isn’t possible. This makes it a danger to non-swimmers.

When is the best time to see whales? 

Humpback whale season is from November through March. Humpback whales do not have a specific time of the day that they are more active, so you can see them at any time throughout the day. 

How cold is the water? 

Water temperatures vary throughout the year but mostly stay around the 70-degree mark.

Will we need swimsuits/wet suits? 

It is recommended that you wear a swimsuit for snorkel tours (bring a towel and dry clothes to change into after snorkeling). Wet suits are not needed on Kauai, but if you are one to get cold easily, you can rent or buy a wet suit from an outside vendor as Holo Holo does not carry wet suits.

How many passengers does your boat take? 

Leila takes up to 37 passengers.

What time do we eat? 

On the morning snorkel tours, the tour starts breakfast just after leaving the harbor, and lunch is served later in the day. For the sunset tours, dinner is typically served one to two hours after departure, depending on the day and tour.

What happens if the weather is bad? 

Tour routes and destinations cannot be guaranteed as sometimes the weather does impact our itinerary.  The captains are knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to Kauai weather and ocean conditions. If at any time there is a concern from the captain, they will come up to the office after check-in to let you know about their concerns.

What about seasickness? 

It is a possibility, especially if you are sensitive to motion. If you are not sure, it is recommended that you take an over-the-counter treatment. Better to be safe than sorry.

Do I really need my photo ID? 

Yes. All passengers that will be partaking in alcohol have a photo ID. Passengers will not be served alcohol if they are not able to show a photo ID upon request.
