Guide to The Hawaiian Islands : Kauai Travel Planner 2018-2019
26 gohawaii.com/kauai @kauaidiscovery Snorkeling Kaua‘i is a fantastic place to view colorful fish through a snorkel mask. Take a boat cruise snorkeling tour, or explore on your own at a safe, shallow spot. Po‘ipū Beach Park also offers a wide variety of tropical marine life to discover. Be sure to check ocean conditions first...if the surf is up or there’s a strong current, don’t go out! Mountain Tubing An adventure for your inner-child! Take a guided adventure tour that starts with basic instruction where all safety equipment is included. Then you’ll be ready to jump on a sturdy inner tube and float gently down Kaua‘i’s tropical waterways, through open canals and several amazing tunnels while viewing breathtaking scenery along the way. Diving Are you a certified diver? If so, gear up for a dive at some great island spots! If you’ve always wanted to give it a try, there are dive shops and certified instructors who can train you for an introductory scuba dive or prepare you for full certification. Experienced divers can find more thrilling spots on the east and west shores, while beginners should start on the north or south shores. Remember: it’s always best to dive with a local guide who can read changing weather and knows the best spots. Heads up! If you drive to Waimea Canyon or Kōke‘e State Park, or want to take a helicopter excursion or airplane flight, you’ll need to wait 24 hours after diving due to the altitude change. Guarded Beaches All of our beautiful beaches have distinct advantages, but as Kaua‘i’s central Pacific location can provide some of the bigger waves on the planet, we recommend only swimming at those with lifeguards on duty. Be sure to check current surf conditions for important beach and ocean safety information at kauaiexplorer.com. Beaches with lifeguards include: •Kē‘ē •Hā‘ena •Anahola •Keālia •Lydgate •Po‘ipū •Salt Pond •Kekaha •Wai‘oli “Pine Trees”/Hanalei •Hanalei Pavilion KickaWitte Water Activities play > WHEN IT COMES TO PLAYING IN THE WATER, KAUA‘I WON’T DISAPPOINT. Paddle down a tranquil river or cruise along the stunning Nāpali Coast. From a snorkel or fishing adventure to a simple picnic or nap on a white sand beach, you’ve certainly come to the right place.
