South Island Zodiac Boat Adventure Dive

Dive Kauaʻi operates a 25 ft. ZODIAC RIB (Rigid hull Inflatable Boat) called the Hokupa’a. Dive Kauai ZODIAC is a US Coast Guard approved vessel for sixteen passengers that takes visitors to areas of marine interest along Kauai’s southern coast. When you’re diving with Dive Kauai they generally have 6-8 divers or less to ensure everyone has a unique and memorable experience.  Dive Kauai is the only company on Kauai that incorporates a zodiac adventure while you dive in the tropical waters off of Kauaʻi’s South Coast.

There is so much to see on these southern coasts in terms of pristine reefs and off-shore caverns that diving in these areas becomes a true pleasure. The fish in these areas are plentiful, the reefs are gorgeous and the weather is almost always sunny and beautiful.

Encounter occasional dolphins, an abundance of exotic Hawaiian reef fish, and beautiful coral formations. Let’s not forget, one of the most exciting creatures you will encounter is the Honu; i.e. the Hawaiian green sea turtle. During the months of December through April, you are also fortunate to hear the sound of Humpback whales singing during Dive Kauai dive tours.

Dive Kauaʻi’s captain and crew look forward to sharing their passion and knowledge of marine life and island history with you.
