With so many natural beauties to explore and breathtaking views to see, it's the ideal excursion for nature lovers and budding photographers alike! Your tour includes an expert guide and private transfer that takes you along the scenic routes of the Tree Tunnel, Hanapepe Swinging Bridge ad two epic lookouts to enjoy spectacular views of the Waimea Canyon and Hanapepe Valley. You'll even get to see water blast nearly 50 feet into the air with a stop at the iconic Spouting Horn blowhole.

Begin your private excursion by meeting your guide at the Kauai pier in Nawiliwili Harbor and then taking a scenic drive on Kauai's west coast through Waimea Canyon--the Pacific's version of the Grand Canyon. This picturesque route leads you to the Hanapepe Lookout, where you'll get to take in the breathtaking views of the lush, green terrain of Hanapepe Valley, that attracted Steven Spielberg to film part of Jurassic Park at this very location. Next, travel to the center of Hanapepe to view the historic Hanapepe Swinging Bridge, a suspension bridge, built at the turn of the 20th century that enabled locals to cross the nearly nine feet-wide Hanapepe River.

Continue your tour to the iconic Waimea Canyon lookout, where you'll get unobstructed views of the Waimea Canyon that's spectacular and camera-ready for the perfect Insta-worthy photos. Next, head to the Spouting Horn blowhole, where you'll get to hear the hissing sounds of this popular attraction that releases water as high as 50 feet into the air from the powerful waves that channel via a natural lava tube. Legend has it that the hissing sounds you hear and powerful spew of water from this epic blowhole are from the breath of a giant mythical lizard that once guarded the coastline and now lays trapped in the natural lava tube. Conclude your tour with a scenic drive through the Eucalyptus tree-lined highway of Tree Tunnel before returning to the pier at Nawiliwili Harbor.

With all the natural attractions and breathtaking views of some of Kauai's scenic sites, this private excursion combines a scenic look at the island and cultural experience for an unforgettable time on Hawaii's oldest island.
