The history of an amazing location

Kapa'a Kauai - The Garden Island

The Garden Island

The Friendly Garden Island of Kauai basks amidst the sparkling blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, about 20 minutes by air from Honolulu. Formed some six million years ago, the island is approximately 550 square miles, and is the geologically oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands. It is home to Mount Waialeale, known as the wettest spot on the planet. With a population of 56,000, Kauai is known as the “Garden Island”.

The temperate climate sees summer temperatures near 90 and enjoys winter evening temperatures in the 60’s. Rainfall varies from 40 inches to 440 at Mount Waialeale. The island is known for its breath taking beauty, and has been the back drop for several major films including; South Pacific, Blue Hawaii, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park.

To visit Kauai is to quickly lose yourself in the quiet majesty of the island’s lush tropical setting and extraordinary natural surroundings. Discover the beauty and Aloha Spirit that abounds in this tropical Garden Island paradise!

Did you know that 80% of Kauai is inaccessible? That means that some of the most spectacular sights can only be seen from the air. The best way to see the island up close and personal is by helicopter. The major highlights of the island are spread out, and it takes a minimum of sixty minutes so see them.

Waimea Canyon (The Grand Canyon of the Pacific), Na Pali Coast (the fastest eroding coast in the world), Mt. Wai’ale (Wettest spot on earth)…just to mention a few of the sights you would experience.

Year round we have fishing charters, windsurfing, surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling and boogie boarding. Romantic sunset sails, too.

In the summer months from May to October the Na Pali Coast is available to view from Zodiac rafts, sailboats or powered catamarans. You can enjoy everything from sightseeing, swimming and snorkeling to a picnic lunch on a secluded beach. You’ll see dolphins, sea turtles and sea birds, sea caves and incredible coastline.

Book before your arrival, as availability is limited.

In the winter months from November to April we like to recommend the tours along the south and southeast coastlines. These areas are calm and smooth. The Kipu Kai coast is a private area and is only accessible by boat. While the winter months can bring big surf on the north coast. You’ll be glad that you’re up close and personal when you see your first humpback whale.

We have 4×4 van tours that take you into the interior of the island’s mountains and canyon. For movie buffs, we have a movie tour that takes you to the locations of the many famous movies that were shot on Kauai.

Not to mention hiking, horseback riding, botanical gardens, the World famous Kilohana Estate, carriage rides and even a cattle ride.

Did you know that Kauai is the only Hawaiian Island with navigation rivers and waterways? You can take a riverboat cruise up the Wailua River to the Fern Grotto or kayak to a trail and hike to a hidden waterfall. You can even hire a ski boat and do a little water skiing!

There are a variety of luaus and special events that take place around the island, depending on the time of year you are going to visit; farmers markets, craft shows, historical sites, beaches to explore, hotels to visit, and plenty of shopping.
