....unlike the blowhole on Maui, you cant really get anywhere near this one and it is not as explosive but still plenty beautiful! We saw seals and turtles from the lookout here! Beautiful and worth the visit.

Spouting Horn is a nice stop as you are driving along the south side of the island in your convertible on a beautiful sunny day. The spouting horn was cool to see. I had read the legend beforehand. You could hear Mo'o the lizard hissing because he was stuck in the lava tube. We took some nice pictures. There were... More

I grew up visiting the spouting horn, Still till today I enjoy visiting it. It is amazing and just beautiful. I can still hear the sounds it makes as it collects the ocean and shot it into the air, it is as if the reef is breathing.

My husband and I really enjoyed looking at spouting horn. you could hear it groaning too which I thought it kind of sounded like a whale. It doesn't take long to see. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes for a big wave to make it come spouting out big, but we saw some big ones and small ones... More

This is a breathtakingly beautiful spot. Easy to get to and park. A short walk from the car. There are vendors set up with GREAT stuff. We visited early in our trip and thought we would see lots more vendors other places and really did not. So, I recommend you take your time and make sure to see everything they... More

The family enjoyed seeing the spouting horn again on this trip to Kauai. We stopped at some of the vendor stalls to buy some souvenirs.

Kauai's beautiful coastline offers much to see. We stopped to see Spouting Horn this trip even though we saw it 7 years before when we visited the island. It must have been the wrong time of day because the burst was not nearly as high as pictured in this site's picture. Nonetheless, it consistently spouted and tourists, including my boys,... More
