The Latest Posts from Captain Tara’s Blog…


Expecting a great Whale Season this year! The calves that were born last winter will be coming back to wean and the whole wonderful process will begin again! We always call the North Pacific Humpbacks that are born here “The Locals” and  these “Yearlings” have already traveled a minimum of 4000 miles with their Mama’s. They are usually the first to arrive in the islands. Why are we different than other Whale Tours on Kaua’i? TWO LOCATIONS: The 2016 “Sea Riders Whale Watch”  will be departing from both the South and West Shores this year!(1) Kukuiula Boat Harbor in Poipu is perfect for our Snorkel/ Whale Watch which departs @ 7:45AM and 11:45 AM. Sunset Whale Watch departs @3:45 PM.(2)Kikiaola Boat Harbor in Waimea cruises “Whale Alley” off the airstrip on the West Side on our 6 passenger Coast Guard “Willard” for 2 hour charters during the day. DISCOUNT: We are offering a discount if booking on line or by phone -before December 20th, 2015. FUN AND EDUCATIONAL: Our Captains and Crew are dedicated to narration and answering questions on our Eco-Charter! Providing the BEST visions of the Whales that nature provides. On our Zodiac RHIB’s the animals are not as spooked by the diesel engines as on  catamarans. HYDROPHONE: Both vessels have underwater microphones which enable us to listen to unique male Whale Songs. Every year the song varies or evolves. Can’t wait to hear this years’ series of clicks and groans!... read more

New Zodiac for Sea Riders

Kauai Sea Riders has recently purchased a new Zodiac!  “Papio” is a 20′ rigid hull Zodiac (formerly a Coast Guard Search Air Rescue Boat) that will be used to run our South Shore snorkel adventures during the summer months while our main vessel, Hookahi (24′ zodiac) is used for Na Pali Coast Tours.  “Papio” is certified for 6 passengers plus captain and crew.  The new boat has shade and pole holders for fishing on private charters which are perfect for families and small groups who want the boat all to themselves. Kauai Sea Riders had an official boat blessing, Nalani Taylor officiating.  It was an awesome event with chanting, a traditional Hawaiian Salt and Ti leaf blessing of the boat, a prayer by Captain Tara and then a whole lot of celebrating!  Kauai Sea Riders is a local small business with an Ohana (family) of support.  ... read more

Working WITH Nature: North VS South

So often we get calls or inquiries about the Na Pali Coast Charters.. in Winter. Please realize that we are a small charter business -intent on quality and integrity of our ocean adventures. It is very difficult  to nail down a day in the winter months, in advance, where the Na Pali is going to be calm enough for the Sea Caves and Snorkeling. So to simplify in planning your Sea Rider Adventure: Summer Na Pali is Epic; Winter Southshore is Steller!! So just call us to see what’s going on with the weather, we get a forecst 7 days in advance. It’s difficult to 2nd guess nature, but here in Hawai’i we are so isolated in the central Pacific, that winter swells from both the North and South Pacific affect the islands in the form of big surf. Come to think of it, the sport of Surfing was first invented by ancient Hawaiians. At this writing, the Northshore surf is HUGE!“Best of Kaua’i” Publication states why our charters have become so popular:” On Kaua’i Sea Rider Adventures, it’s all about the Snorkeling, spending More time in the water than on the boat and on the Whalewatch charter, spending More time with the Humpback... read more
