Catamaran Kahanu

Do you think you might enjoy a fun and educational boat trip to the NaPali Coast with a true Hawaiian family? If so you should consider one of the wonderful adventures on Catamaran Kahanu with the Hawaiian family of Captain Lani, his son Kamua and his crew. Captain Lani's family history dates back generations to his great, great grandfather Kahanu after whom the boat is named. The family still lives on Kauai's north shore as they did in those days and they bring the charm, spirit and aloha of the Hawaiian culture to each and every one of their special charters. At day's end you'll know the Hawaiian name for all that you've experienced and you might even have a chance to try your hand at some Hawaiian handicrafts such as the making of baskets, mats and hats. There's even a good likelihood you'll be leaving the boat with a special rose made from the natural fibers of the coconut that you wove yourself. Between the dolphins, the reef fish, the whales in season, the spectacular Napali Coast, the great food, the handicrafts and the educational emersion in all things Hawaiian, you're destined to have one of your most fun and exciting days on Kauai. Captain Lani and the Kahanu are also available for dinner cruises, whale watching in season and private charters for your special occasion.
