The Forbidden Island Snorkel & Na Pali - 1-888-508-9948
The Forbidden Island of Niihau is native Hawaiian sanctuary. It's completely closed to the public. The only way to get close is by taking this 7.5 hour boat tour. You won't set foot on Niihau, but you'll get a great look at it.
The island of Niihau offers some of the best snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands. Holoholo's flagship yacht is the fastest ship in the Na Pali fleet and will go to Niihau weather permitting.
The 7.5 hour tour trip includes views of the Na Pali coast and a likely dolphin encounter. The snorkeling is the difference maker and is held just off of Niihau, next to a tiny island known as Lehua Rock.
The snorkeling is incredible. You can expect crystal clear waters with several hundred feet of visibility. There is plenty of coral and fish to look at. This is a great location to see bigger marine life. Sea Turtles, Monk Seals, Manta Rays, Dolphins and even whales during season can be seen from this spot.
After snorkel, lunch and cocktails are served on the return trip. You should be back in Port Allen by 2pm
