The Niuhi is a 30ft HydroCat catamaran style hull powered by twin Suzuki 250 4-stroke engines. The boat carries 6 passengers and provides a quick, stable ride to the many available dive locations on the Pensacola Gulf Coast. The Niuhi is outfitted with redundant electronic systems, VHF radio with built-in DSC locating system, EPIRB, freshwater shower, custom dive ladder, cabin for dry storage, all required coast guard equipment, emergency oxygen, and first aid kits. There is always dive professional onboard during charters to assist customers. Water and snacks are provided on all trips. The boat is named “Niuhi” (ny-u-ee) which is Hawaiian for tiger shark and is the basis for many Hawaiian legends.
Spearfishing in State and Federal Waters
Niuhi’s Federal reef fishing permit allows Niuhi customers to spearfish in federal and state waters. Niuhi customers do not need their own fishing license as they will be covered by the boat’s permit. While most other Pensacola boats are restricted to state waters, the Niuhi can take you further and deeper to where the big fish really are.
