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.

Tara and Nick provided a very personal and engaging time. With our limited experience, we were fitted with the right equipment, felt comfortable and were rewarded with spinner dolphins, up-close sea turtles and schools of interesting fish. Tara was in the water with us naming...More

They provided me with a prescription mask, and even put sunscreen on my bald spot. I had not used a snorkel in 50 years. They gave me great instruction. The reefs were everything we expected. The guides were very knowledgeable. It was a great experience.

I am not the expert. I was surprise that we did not see them a couple weeks ago. Late April may be too late.
