About Us

We invite you to join us on Catamaran Kahanu for an awe-inspiring journey to Kaua’i’s Na Pali Coast. We are a Hawaiian family business sharing with you one of Kaua’i’s greatest treasures, the cliffs of Na Pali. Your voyage takes you to where Captain Lani’s ohana-family once lived. Learn the history and culture of ancient communities that once thrived in these remote valleys. View the majestic cliffs, cascading waterfalls, lava tubes, and sea caves. Enjoy the nai’a (the porpoises and dolphins), the honu (the Hawaiian sea turtles), and the kohola (the humpback whales) during the months of December to April. Swim or snorkel at a pristine reef, then enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch. Book your charter today!

Catamaran Kahanu
Amazing Experience

This is the crew you want to go with, they are so personal and caring. They let everyone on board get a unique experience. They are not like the other charters that take 100 people, this is a family-owned business that cares about everyone that sets foot on board.

Unforgettable Trip

We had such a great time. We saw the breathtaking Napali coast, snorkeled, saw sea turtles, and observed dolphins up close. We couldn’t have wished for a more magical time. I highly recommend. The ship and their crew felt more personal. You will enjoy a beautiful day at sea.

Incredible Sail

This trip was amazing. To start, the captain is extremely knowledgeable and their main concern is your safety. This is a great family experience for all ages. We got to enjoy the beautiful scenery, swam, and saw dolphins. We really enjoyed the Na Pali coast. Beautiful experience.

Fantastic

An amazing outing for our family of 11. Napali coast gorgeous and our guide was quite informative! The catamaran was able to get so close to the shoreline and we saw caves and waterfalls. The snorkeling was great and the equipment was provided. Our captain was outstanding and made our trip fantastic.
