Snorkeling tours on Kauai combine luxury and adventure, and offer one of the best ways to explore Kauai’s marine life. In the water you will encounter a wide array of tropical fish, green sea turtles (honu), spinner dolphins (nai’a) and beautiful coral reefs. Snorkeling tours will take you through sea caves and marine life sanctuaries, and provide meals, drinks, and entertainment. Here is a list of our top snorkeling tours on Kauai.

Note: When getting in the water and swimming through the reefs, please be respectful of marine life by wearing reef-safe sunscreen and by not touching or removing any coral. We all want to keep Hawaiian reefs and marine life healthy and beautiful for decades to come. Mahalo!
