Kauai's West and South Shores Tour
Experience the best of Kauai on a full-day private tour through the island's scenic landscape, highlights and historic landmarks. Sample locally-grown coffee at the Kauai Coffee Plantation, and visit old-fashioned Hanapepe; follow the footsteps of Captain Cook and take in stunning views of Waimea Canyon. Feel the mist off Waipo'o Falls, watch the Spouting Horn lava tube erupt with towering surf. Visit famous Wailua Falls.
We will make our first stop at the Menehune Fishpond, where you'll learn about the mythical Menehune people and discover rare features of the pond, built on a freshwater river rather than the ocean shoreline.
Next, head to the Kauai Coffee Company, the largest coffee plantation in the country. At the visitor center, sample a variety of the finest local coffee. Leaving the plantation, drive through historical Hanapepe - Kauai biggest little town.
On our journey to the Waimea Canyon we will stop at the 3 beautiful lookouts (one with the Waipo'o Waterfalls).
Your next stop is Kalalau Lookout, which boasts views (weather permitting) of the magnificent cliffs of the NaPali Coast.
Stop at a local diner for a Hawaiian barbecue lunch (own expense). After lunch, you're taken to Kauai's South Shore to see the Spouting Horn. Our last stop will be the Wailua Falls - twin waterfalls from the opening scene of the "Fantasy Island".
