Quite amazing to watch the water spout with such beautiful surroundings. We visited it a little later in the afternoon, and it was very picturesque.

Spouting Horn is a lovely walk up the road from where we are staying, so we walk up there every couple of days. It's interesting to see and hear the horn and how it changes depending on the weather conditions. We've seen high spouts and heard roars like a sea lion with little water action. It's a fun little trip... More

It is as promised, with water spouting through the opening as the waves crash into the rocks....Beautiful!

Nice place to see especially when waves are crashing on the beach and the tide is up. Nice shops in the park.

You will want to see the spouting horn display the water shooting in the air, and the vendor displays are very interesting.

Worth the time...try to go in the afternoon when the trade winds are blowing and the waves are bigger...skip the curios shops hawking their wares...

It is an amazing natural formation and the waves cause it to spout every 15 seconds, or so. If good waves, then bigger spouts. There are little stands there selling trinkets, so it is kind of "commercial", but was great on our last day to pick up little gifts to bring home.

This was a fun little stop to make. We were able to see it blowing pretty high so that was cool. We probably spent 10 - 15 min. there so it's not something that takes much time. If you're in the area, it's worth checking out. I wouldn't drive from the other side of the island just for this though.... More

There are several other blow holes like Spouting Horn in Hawaii such as the Halona Blow Hole on Oahu. If you have seen that one, no need to go out of your way to see this one.

There were many vendors here that gave you a chance to shop. The spout was unimpressive but to be fair, we were there at low tide. I have been told it is much more impressive at high tide. Still, it is worth a stop!
