Unfortunately, we arrived when the tour bus did, but they didn't stay long. To see and hear the water spouting in to the air is very cool. We made this a stop along with a longer trip as opposed to just a destination. Very memorable.

Not that much to see. You park and stand at the overlook (chain link fence). Wait a couple of seconds and a wave will cause the rocks to spit out some water. Take a picture then walk about 40 ft to a covered market. They sell cheap jewelry, kids toys, etc... We spent about 20min here.

This is a great view and a neat thing to see while on Kauai. We were able to see a turtle out in the surf and the ships along the way were fun to look through.

This is amazing to see. Every time we visit Kauai we make sure to drive over to take a look. It's hard to explain, just go see and hear as the water is crashing into the lava rocks and shoots through a hole making a horn sounding noise. The color of the water is amazing too.

This was a fun quick stop to make. Beautiful coastline. Nice variety of birds to see. Facilities were clean. Good amount of parking. There's are a number of vendors in the shade where you can shop - from fine jewelry to inexpensive trinkets.

Spouting horn is a free attraction close to poipu beach. Terrific view and if you go during the swell you can really enjoy an old faithful experience in Hawaii. Some spouts go to 40 feet and sound like a dragon breathing. When taking photos watch the waves coming in and can prep for the bigger waves that will make an... More

Each wave provides anticipation as to how much the main blow-hole will spout. Large spouts of water can produce beautiful rainbows across the lava rock. To the right, most evenings, you can see sea turtles feeding on the algae against the rocks. The only downside is the vista spot is bordered with a chain linked fence which detracts from the...

Spouting Horn is a reliable treat. For a special view try driving to the end of the road and going out on one of the many trails. This is also a good spot to see turtles.

Really a lot like blow hole in Oahu, but pretty ride there and awesome to see the roosters and hens nesting there. There are also some local vendors there during certain hours.
