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.

Captain and mate Christina were great trying to get us to the best spots to see whales which we did. Also saw large number of dolphins who were literally coming up close to the boat. The boat is an inflatable like the Navy Seals use so not as comfortable as others but lots of fun.

I knew that I'd enjoy being out on the water in such a beautiful location, seeing whales close up would be a plus. Captain Sarah was knowledgable, engaging, excited about providing her clients the best experience possible and interacted with passengers easily and well. And we saw many whales! My wife had a similar great experience about 5 years prior.... More

We had an amazing time with whale watching Friday evening (2/3/17) and snorkeling in the morning (2/4/17). We were fortunate enough to have a whale get really close! During the snorkeling trip we saw turtles and all sorts of fish! We were originally scheduled for Sunday (2/6), but they called us and got us in early because the weather was... More

This was a fantastic tour lead by an excellent guide! We were on a smaller boat so were able to get a bit closer but our guide was so respectful to the wildlife out at sea and it was obvious he was passionate about what he was doing and sharing. He was very knowledgable and shared tons of neat facts.... More

I have participated in Whale Watches in Massachusetts and Puget Sound. On each of my three previous adventures, there as been a marine biologist who knew a lot more than the guide on this trip. I appreciate this guide's concern for the whales but I think that he overdid the possibly unwarranted criticism of other enterprises in the area.
