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.
