The crew of the Holoholo charters boat was incredibly friendly and welcoming. We had a guest who on the way back felt the motion of the ocean a little too much an...d was unfortunately very seasick on the way back. The crew assisted her as much as possible, moving other guests around to allow for the best seats to minimize sea sickness. I recommend taking some anti motion sickness pills before heading to the ride as a precaution, even if you don’t normally get seasick. The views from the boat were INCREDIBLE. we got to see Ni’ihau and Lehua Crater up close and personally, and even got to see a monk seal. She swam up and got close while we were snorkeling which was an awesome experience. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is looking at seeing the Napali coast from the boats, as well as have a little sense of adventure. Read moreRead less
The crew and captain were very capable and went out of their way to be hospitable and helpful on the trip to Niihau. The crew was friendly and really looked afte...r the passengers. I was impressed with it. I've been on many trips like this with many companies. Holo Holo Chartres stood out in a quality way. The snorkeling there was excellent for water clarity. We saw a diverse number of marine mamals on the trip.Read moreRead less
My wife, daughter and granddaughter all had a great time on this long day tour. The setting and snorkeling were spectacular, of course, and it helped to have per...fect weather - about as sunny and calm as it gets. Lots of fish and a few seals during the snorkeling. I would use Holo Holo again for this or other trips. The check-in was seamless. The boat crew was very friendly, informative and very helpful. The food and drinks were plentiful and tasty (but not gourmet). The boat was well maintained, very clean and , I think, just the right size. It was big enough to feel comfortable traveling the channel back from Ni'ihau when exposed to the trade winds, but able to get part way into the caves and get those of us on the bow or stern under a couple of waterfalls. We looked at the smaller zodiac type tours and the larger catamaran tours and felt we made the right choice to go in between. Although we do not usually get sea-sick, we all took dramamine the night before and the next morning and had no issues. People need to understand this tour can be pretty rough at times, so they should always consider the conditions. As my granddaughter said - "a most excellent was to spend the day"!Read moreRead less
