Information on Kauai Outdoor Activities
TIP: Grab literature from the several large kiosks at baggage claim -- while you are waiting for your luggage -- at the Lihue Airport. Its one of the nicest set ups we've ever seen. You can get information on dining, shopping, and all activities.

WHAT not TO SEE -- Occasionally someone will ask what activities are likely to be disappointing. This is a very difficult question to answer because in every sport there are beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels of challenge and excitement. For instance, the Power Boating excursions to Fern Grotto are very 'beginner' and would likely not impress the 'intermediate' -- someone who is more active and adventuresome. This 'intermediate' level should consider visiting Fern Grotto by self paddled kayak. For this person, the Grotto itself is likely to be disappointing as it caters to the 1000's of beginners who arrive by power boat. Nevertheless, the kayaking trip to the Grotto can be very memorable.
the names and places in Hawaii are confusing for first timers and repeat
visitors alike. Click on the "instant map" icon on the left menu-bar to
get a Hawaii map in a separate window that will stay open on your screen
until you close it.
TIP: Also for the do-it-yourself enthusiast, we recommend the website called 101 Things to Do in Kauai. This is the online version of the very popular booklet by the same title available at the airport super-kiosk.
