That's what my son asked after he saw the huge water spout, but I think he was kidding. A natural wonder which is very cool for kids and adults, definitely a bonus since we saw it during a spectacularly beautiful day. It only takes about 10-15 minutes so worth the side trip if you are in the area.

Small but interesting natural site with water spouting from a lava rock hole. Doesn't take much time to see it, but interesting none the less.

There is good signage to find this place and it is popular with a good size parking lot. It is amazing to watch the waves and try to predict when the water will blow up through the hole in the rocks. There are other areas where you can watch something similar happen. The coastline is pretty here at this spot.

Spouting Horn is located just past the Botanic Garden on the south Shore. There is plenty of parking, souvenirs for sale and a nice view. The spouting comes from waves squirting water up through a hole in the rocks.

What a great place. Loved watching the sunsets from Spouting Horn and enjoyed the whale watching. I can't wait to return.

If you are nearby (around the corner from the Allerton Botanical Gardens) then be sure to drop by. Not worth a trek.

A wonderful place to browse vendor wares while you stroll to the main attraction, a blow hole known as the Spouting Horn. It is at the end of the road yet just minutes from Koloa Town. The souvenirs have a local cultural flare and most are moderately priced. You will always see chickens and many times a mamma with her... More

This was only about a mile and a half away from our hotel at the Sheraton. Definitely worth spending a few minutes. Check out the attached photo.

It wasn't very busy when we got there, so we had a good view standing at the fence. It didn't take too long to watch the spout "go". You can almost time when it will happen, by watching the waves come in.

See the water spray up! Also see turtles swimming and whales breaching. Limited parking as this is a major attraction.
