Exploring island adventures
Is anywhere so different and diverse as this? Giant green sea turtles, or honu, swim past your paddleboard. Dolphins play alongside your sailboat. And each spring, the humpbacks return from vacation and to birth their calves. And so the whales too are kamaaina, native born. To the northwest is the iconic Na Pali Coast, accessible only by helicopter or boat. And to the northeast is the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon. Fourteen miles long, one mile wide and 3,600 feet deep, it is home to majestic waterfalls, dazzling red rocks, and lush green foliage on its gorges and crags. This is Kauai, a garden of earthly delights.
AT SPOUTING HORN
Legend has it that a young boy lured a giant dragon into the lava tube at Spouting Horn. As each wave arrives, you can hear the roar of the trapped beast as the blowhole erupts. The beauty of Kauai is that each natural wonder is connected to the myths of the ancients.

WONDERS NEVER CEASE
From the depths of the sea to mountaintops ringed with clouds, this island begs to be discovered. And happily, as the least populated, most unspoiled in all Hawaii, exploration remains a very intimate and personal experience.
