Kaua`i Underwater Visions of 2013

Kaua`i Underwater Visions of 2013

We have had several passengers share their underwater photos from their Sea Rider adventures and we look forward to an amazing summer on the Na Pali Coast! Remember that we work with the ocean and will schedule charters accordingly to weather and ocean conditions. We still run our signature 3 hour South Shore Snorkel when the South Swells allow.  In summer when the Na Pali Reefs are accessible we go to a secluded mooring site for snorkeling where you will see more Marine Life then people!  Mahalo for all the Sea Riders who support Research-Outreach and Education!

Teenagers on the Na Pali Coast!!

Kaua’i Sea Riders offers a discount rate for teenagers for the summer Na Pali Charters. As a Mom of 3 I realize that traveling with the entourage can be stressful and expensive! In our normal busy lives it is hard to get everyone on the same page. So when you are visiting the Hawaiian Islands in summer with the family, check out Kaua’i’s Na Pali Coast by Zodiac with Captain Tara and crew! This adventure on the ocean will surely get your kids to smile! The above photo is of Bree, a recent High School graduate, who was lovin’ this vacation with her Mom (Melissa), Dad (Joe) and siblings Dean and...
Na Pali Coast Zodiac Eco Charters Just $125

Na Pali Coast Zodiac Eco Charters Just $125

We are now starting to offer our Summer Eco-Charters to the Na Pali Coast.  Join us in an intimate group on super stable and fast Zodiac vessel with a Marine Biologist as your guide.  On Kaua‘i Sea Rider Adventures, it’s all about the ocean environment and snorkeling.  Our snorkel sites are spectacular and uncrowded, because we go to places most of the other tour boats don’t go to.   Join us for a unique and personal scenic charter of Kaua’iian waters! Due to rising fuel costs, we will have to raise our rates after June 30, 2011 – so take advantage of our spring special of $125 for adults ; $115 for Teens (ages 13-18) and $105 for children (5 – 12). We love  families and know this NaPali Coast tour will be a cherished memory that will last you and your family a lifetime!  Group rates and Private charters are also available. We depart from Kikiaola Boat Harbor in Waimea; a shorter distance than from other harbors and as a result we spend more time exploring and snorkeling on the remote Na Pali Coast. Experience this spectacular shoreline, sea caves, waterfalls and exotic sea life from our 24′ foot Zodiac “Hurricane” known for it’s safe and smooth ride.   And of course, don’t forget that our “3 Hour Tour” – our popular South Shore Kauai Snorkel tour is available year-round, for those who want to spend more time in the water snorkeling than on the boat traveling to the NaPali...

Seariders Helps Deploy Oceanographic Meter Sea Riders was sub-contracted to Sea Engineering a company which specializes in coastal engineering, geophysical surveys, oceanographic and environmental studies, as well as marine waterfront construction and industrial diving.  We assisted in deploying a Oceanographic meter.  I Love anything science!  Jon and Chris are great divers and easy to work with! Will be surfacing meter periodically this year to obtain wave and current data that is on memory card. Awesome technology! The NaPali Snorkeling Season is Coming to An End… We have moved down to the Southshore to swim on the “reef of abundance” with the Sea Turtles and tropical fish.   The Na Pali is getting frisky, with swells which makes for murky snorkeling.  We did our last Sea Cave excursion, snorkel, this week on the Na Pali and an early season North Swell is coming in this weekend 10+feet!!  On  Sundays’ South Shore Snorkel we were blessed with five Dolphins swimming under us as we snorkeled as well as Honu (turtles) –  a fleeting moment that will live forever in the hearts and memories of those experienced it! Night Diving for Lobsters… The crew of Kauai Seariders and I have been night diving for lobsters for sustainability and to share with friends.  Lobster season opened on September 1st in Hawaii.  The Spiny Lobster will molt and mate during summer months. The season includes the months that have an “R” in their name.  Diving at night is a blast!  I think I like to catch them more than eat them if that is possible. It is illegal to spear these crustaceans, because you may...
