rave_photo“Captain Tara of Kauai Searider Snorkel Tours is one of Kauai’s best kept secrets.  Her Zodiac snorkeling tours are small and intimate and of a caliber you just can’t get with the bigger companies.  Captain Tara is a lovely mix of Captain, Marine Biologist, Mermaid, Gracious Host, Mom & the Aloha Spirit.  She’ll keep you safe, fit you for snorkel gear, show you incredible marine life you’ve never seen before and teach you about Hawaii, it’s history and culture.   Somehow she effortlessly manages to make everyone on the trip feel like Ohana (family) and is genuinely dedicated to making every trip a unique and exciting experience for each and every guest.  For a truly unforgettable tour, I highly recommend Captain Tara and Kauai Sea Rider Adventure Tours, you won’t find a captain who works harder to ensure you have an epic time.”
