At team Sea Riders we pride ourselves in what makes us different from other companies. Kauai Sea Riders has been providing specialized small group Zodiac Eco Tours on Kauai since 2005. As a Marine Biologist, I have always focused on providing Eco Tours to our guests – focusing on education while at the same time having a great time. All of our staff are professionally trained and share the same passion and reverence for this amazing ocean environment we get to play in everyday! We choose snorkel locations that aren’t over crowded or common, and you will have a Divemaster guiding your snorkel adventure ensuring you have an exceptional snorkeling experience. At the end of the day, our goal is to have our customers feel that they have been expertly cared for, had an experience of a lifetime, and have learned something new about the ocean and its incredible inhabitants.

We had a wonderful morning with Captain Tara and the crew of Kauai Sea Rider tours. Fun, informative, well organised , safe yet a very relaxed feel. We saw plenty of dolphins, thousands of fish and a dozen or more sea turtles.

Our first trip with another company got cancelled and was a blessing in disguise. That was your typical boat, 30+ people, booze cruise style snorkel. This was a small group on a navy seal zodiac raft. The crew was the nicest most personable you can...More
