“Much Ado About Nothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I think the spout was off the day we visited. An occasional spume of water came through but not much to write home about. The walk to the viewing area was enjoyable and the seascape spectacular. We also walked around the receiving area for the Botanical Gardens which was nice but didn't take the bus tour to the actual gardens

“Didn't disappoint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Spouting Horn is driven by wave action, which is not predictable. We were lucky and saw good water spouts. The sound is also amazing. Worth a quick visit.

Best prices on the island for gifts for yourself & those you left at home. Lots of choices for your loved ones. I've done Christmas shopping there!

“A cool quick stop!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is one of those places that you really should stop by while in Kauai that will only take a few minutes. It is Hawaii's version of "Old Faithful."

“Wrong Tide at the time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We drove up to Spouting horn to watch it spout...However, it was more like a hiccup, due to the waters being calm. We did buy a nice basket from one of the vendors up there. Wish it was more active when we were there. Can't climb down to it due to rocks.
