My family of four (two teen boys) are headed to Hawaii for 10 nights. We plan on Kauai for 7 and Oahu for 3 nights.
I have read up on the various communities. We intend to do the following, in no particular order:
2. Hiking (definitely the Waimea Canyon and also other preferably less crowded trails)
3. Catamaran Na Pali (Cap'n Andy - Southern Star)
Maybe throw in Kayaking or helicopter ride (if budget allows)
We are interested in getting a cottage near the water (or maybe a condo), as opposed to staying at a resort. I like the idea of a cottage, as I feel like we will get a better feel for the Island life.
Does Hanalei Bay make sense with our goals in mind if we can find a cottage/house?
How hard is it to get from the north Shore to Waimea Canyon?
If we want to do the Catamaran out of Port Allen is it a problem to get from North shore to Port Allen?
With cleaning fees, I presume it makes little sense to split our time in two places and pay the fee twice.. correct?
Thanks in advance
