East and North Shores of Kauai

Discover Kauai's highlights and hidden gems on a full-day private tour that offer a personal glimpse of the island's local culture and history. Feel the mist from a pair of beautiful waterfalls. Look out to sea from the Kilauea Lighthouse and the world famous Hanalei Bay, and watch for whales and endangered geese at a wildlife refuge. Visit Princeville, St. Regis Princeville Resort and Hanalei Valley Lookout with a largest taro plantation in Hawaii.


Our first stop will be the Wailua Falls, made famous in the opening credits of the TV show "Fantasy Island". Snap photos of the double cascade, which descends 80 feet (24 meters) into the stream below, before continuing on to another stunner: Opaeka'a Falls. From the Wailua River Overlook you will see a re-created ancient Hawaiian village below, used as a set in the movie "Outbreak". After a brief stop at the Kauai Hindu Monastery in a magnificent tropical setting, you're driven through Kapaa Town, passing by 100-year-old coconut trees on the way North.
From Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge you will see beautiful vistas of the Pacific as well as seabirds and humpback whales.
We will stop at Hanalei Town for lunch. Afterward we will visit world famous Hanalei Bay where "South Pacific" was filmed, and take a stroll on Hanalei Pier.
