General Information

Traveling aboard a catamaran will allow you to feel the ocean’s power for yourself. That’s an exhilarating sensation. But it can also be distressing for some people. Take anti-nausea medications if you’re prone to seasickness. Remember that the weather can change at any moment. Dress in layers and be prepared to get wet. Each vessel has shaded areas and restrooms.

Most Kauai catamaran cruises offer the chance to snorkel. This is a great way to get up close and personal with the ocean. But It’s best to forgo snorkeling if you’re unsure of your swimming abilities or if you’ve been drinking alcohol. The Pacific is a majestic lady. But she’s also a powerful force that demands respect.

Whether or not you’ll see dolphins or whales during your cruise depends on many factors. Whales are generally most active during the winter. They swim southward to enjoy the warm tropical waters. Check with your tour provider for specific guidance and policies.

Pregnant ladies and those with back, hip, or neck problems should think twice before boarding a catamaran. The same is true for those with heart conditions or who have had recent surgeries.
