We drove through the park and it was beautiful! A few spots were too cloudy to get a view at the top, but some lookout points along the way are gorgeous showing the canyon and waterfall in the distance.

My boyfriend, the adventurous one, signed us up for the raft boat tour. Although I was nervous and a little hesitant at first I'm so glad I didn't let my nerves win!

A must-see for anyone visiting Kauai! The Na Pali Coast State Park is a bucket list item, whether by land, sea, or air. The hike can be a bit treacherous, so be sure to wear appropriate gear. The views are breathtaking - we kept having to pinch ourselves to remind ourselves that a place this beautiful really exists!

Napali Coast has been one of my favorite locations for many years. The overlooks up above the carved canyons are beautiful and provide an excellent vantage point for photographs. The weather changes constantly with fog rolling in and out so the views change moment by moment. This is a must see place on Kauai as is a boat trip along... More

There is about a 4 hour hike, which is about and hour and a half walking there, then some beach time and relaxing, and then back, that is simply spectacular!!! Some of the most incredible views we have ever seen! It has patches that are a bit difficult (especially if it is raining or muddy from rain) but we saw... More

On our fourth trip to Kalalau, the weather and the condition of the trail encouraged us to turn around at the halfway point - folks who went only into the first river seemed thrilled with their adventure and the first two miles of trail are remarkable better than the trail leading further toward Kalalau!

Our first experience seeing this amazing coastline was by boat. The magnitude of it all was too much to take it as you just stood there from down on your little boat and saw the formations one after another making a pattern that wrapped around the whole western part of Kauai. On the boat it was neat to have resident... More

This is so beautiful that you have to see it to believe it. This is where Jurassic Park/World was filmed. It is simply breathtaking. If you are doing the Hawaiian Cruise, make sure you come on deck to see this.

Took a sail boat dinner tour with Captain Andy's. Scenic views comparable to Fjords in Norway. What's different? see picture accompanying this review, it was taken where the boat turns around to head back. The tour was enjoyable, food was good (do not order vegetarian). The captain put in a lot of efforts to keep the guests entertained. Personally, we... More
