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.

I have used Kauai Sea Rider the last four trips. Always amazing with a great staff. We actually had a Pod of Bottle Nose swim right through our group.

Had a great time with Tara and crew. There are so many tour operators out there but I try and seek out companies that have a focus on conservation and education. This tour did not disappoint, plus, it was a lot of fun!

Perfect Day! The crew at sea riders was awesome, friendly, and made our snorkeling experience one of the highlights of Hawaii. Turtles, spinner dolphin, tons of fish, and then more turtles await!
