“Worth the time to stop and check out Spouting Horn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

What is even cooler than the water getting shot into the air from the lava tube formation is the sound of the deep moan of spouting horn. Check the tides, some times are better than others but I think it is best at high tide. Cool to see and doesn't take much time.

“Fun natural experience- great spot for Hawaiian sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Its essentially a blow-hole. Go near high tide for best effect. Ample parking. Nice spot for viewing sunset.

“neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

this was a couple miles from were we stayed so we drove up one afternoon. it's a very neat natural thing to see. check out the vendors. they have all the stuff you can buy in the stores but they are cheaper by far.

“not too impressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I thought spouting horn would be a cool thing to see, but i wasnt too impressed. maybe b/c it wasnt high tide when i saw it. but doesnt hurt to stop by if you're in the south shore/poipu area. there were some nice shops nearby, bought one of those brown seed necklaces, cheapest price for those type of necklaces on the whole island.

“Cool- for 5 minutes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Just drop by to say that you've been here. Blowholes like this are rare, but after 5 minutes its time to head off somewhere else.
