Holo Holo Charters - Na Pali Coast Snorkel & Sail
Climb aboard Leila for true “trade wind” sailing experience. It is a thrilling adventure on a beautiful 48' sailing catamaran. This is truly a breathtaking ride, as it’s not uncommon to ride the wind and attain speeds up to 18 knots!
As we head out your crew will regale you with stories of the Hawaiians who once lived there. Once we arrive at our snorkeling destination you can get in the water and snorkel the beautiful clear waters. The Na Pali coast has 3,000 foot cliffs, concealed beaches, green valleys, secluded waterfalls and hidden caves. The breathtaking beauty of the Na Pali coast is best enjoyed while immersed in the sea.
This incredible tour offers you the coast on a more personal level than you will get with other tour companies. The Leila, a 42-ft aluminum monohull boat is small enough to fit into some of the more inaccessible snorkeling locations such as Nualolo Kai. This means you get a more intimate experience with the land than a larger boat offers you.

- The Leila is a beautiful 50-foot sailing catamaran with ample room for lounging. The catamaran design allows for level sailing. With no more than 10 degrees of heel, you won't be sailing sideways. The Leila is equipped with two heads (bathrooms) that are spacious enough to change from sailing to swimming attire. The catamaran is licensed to carry 45 people, but we keep it down to 37 to give you plenty of space to take in the views.
