The island of Niihau is perhaps the least well known of all the islands in the Hawaiian chain. Lying just eighteen miles off the coast of Kauai it is a jewel in terms of snorkeling having beautiful coral formations. One boat that regularly makes the cruise to Niihau to share its wonders with a curious public is Blue Dolphin Charters. They include the trip to Niihau with their tour to the Na Pali Coast making a day that is both long and adventurous. The island itself is off-grounds to the general public but its surrounding reefs and those of its neighboring island of Lehua are available for all to see provided they make the long ocean trek out to these beautiful areas. Blue Dolphin's boat "Tropic Bird" is one of the few boats in the Kauai fleet of touring vessels that is stable and strong enough to make the trip all the way to the "Forbidden Island".
