I am Kate, a local Naturalist in the Hawaiian Islands. What is a Naturalist you ask? Someone who can get you out into Nature to enjoy Hiking, Snorkeling, Whale Watching and more! Imagine a hike to a waterfall, or a secluded beach, touring historical landmarks, and the hidden trails of Kauai all while really getting to know the place on a deeper level.
A bit about me: I attended the University of Hawaii for Biology, Marine Science, and Geology. I have worked for Pacific Whale Foundation with Humpback Whales, as a Coral Reef Ecologist, and a Maritime Cultural Anthropologist. I have planted thousands of koa trees and other native plants in Hakalau National Forest as a way to preserve the habitat of our inland native birds. I love to sail canoe, surf, scuba dive, and perform Hawaiian music for fun.
I am passionate being a great tour guide. I love to get to know each group of people and really give them a good experience exploring the island. I create custom tours in line with optimal weather conditions of the day and whatever special things might be happening on island. I strive to bring out the best experience possible for visitors of Kauai by sharing Aloha through music, culture, nature, food, photography, art, and interactions with great people!
We can talk about anything under the sun, or nothing at all! Either way, it will be a great experience as Kauai is one of the most magical places on Earth. I can't wait to show it to you!
E Komo Mai!
A Recent Review of this guide
The tour was excellent. Kate was very knowledgeable of the environment. What really made the trip was how she spent the time with my wife getting her to be comfortable with the water. My wife had not snorkel for some time and Kate patience and presence got my wife to snorkel. We were able to see all types of fish and even a sea turtle. In the 4 hours we spent it was well worth the trip. Thanks Kate.
