This is surely not something to drive to see unless you are nearby. It's just a quick stop and something interesting to see but not very impressive except for the kids.

Not a lot to see - just a spout of water coming up out of the rocks. The noise that it made was pretty cool though.

Impressive natural sight. Easy to get to. Especially pretty at sun set! Definitely worth a fifteen minute detour.

Had to wait for an afternoon rainstorm to stop, so took shelter near the knick-knacks. Hit this place around 1pm, and there weren't too many people here. Got plenty of pics to share when the sun came out. Added fun: Use the Zillow app when you pass the houses. I saw a $3 and a $2.25 million house along the... More

This sight is something that young and old will all enjoy. Not only is it free, but you will want to keep coming back again and again.

The horn wasn't anything I would travel out of the way for, not more than 10 minutes anyway. You see the water spout up like a geyser about 15-20 feet, and that is all.

Didn't know what to expect, but it was fun and pretty view. Waves go into the lava tunnels and blow up and out of the holes

This is very beautiful & amazing how nature creates these sights. Mesmerizing! The kids captured on their phones a bunch of the blowholes, along with the waves crashing along the rocks. Kept their attention....

We went several times & while it was always a sight to see, the spouting just wasn't there. A smaller blowhole was the star this year. Not as high or loud as the other but still a wonder to see & hear. To the right of the spouting( or non-spouting) is a small lagoon....always see multiple turtles there. Nature is... More

We stopped in to see the Spouting Horn as we were staying near Poipu beach. There is a car park and bathrooms and a few local traders selling their wares. It's quite impressive to see the water shoot up and hear the sounds that the Horn makes. Worth a visit if nearby.
