Your efforts to focus on our interests was truly appreciated.  I was thrilled to be able to see the Spinner dolphins, Monk seals, Brown Boobies, Sea turtles, and all the tropical fish.  It was a biologist’s dream come true.  Wishing you a great summer season.” –Karen and Tony Santiago NOW is the time to cruise and Snorkel Kauai’s NaPali Coast.   The Na Pali is gorgeous right now –  Sea Caves, Waterfalls, Spinner Dolphin and the rain of winter making the Sea Cliffs an emerald green!

Hawaiian Monk Seal

Hawaiian Monk Seal

“Ilio Holo Kai”: The Dog that Runs in the Sea Virtually unchanged for 15 million years, the Hawaiian Monk Seal is considered a treat for visitors on their Kaua’i vacation and a focus of local pride as they are Only found in Hawa’ii. Considered the 2nd most endangered species of marine mammal in  the world. If you happen to encounter a Hawaiian Monk Seal that is hauled -out on the beach and resting, (Or especially if you believe the animal is injured or entangled) usually volunteers will have used ropes and sign to barricade the animal from interference, but feel free to call me Captain Tara @ (808)332-7238 (RAFT) and I will alert the  Hawaiian Monk Seal Conservation Team of Kaua’i. Your interest and eyes and ears are truly welcome and appreciated. Great Environmental news is that along with some moralities of these rare mammals, there have been 2 newborn pups, successfully weaned, tagged and doing well. As you can see in the photo they are a delight to observe from a distance and as I always say when left alone nature does a great job without human interference! Photo by Dr. Mimi Olry and...
