Kauai: Island of Discovery
Lush, peaceful and awash in vibrant colors, Hawaii’s northwestern
anchor is sparsely populated with people (just 63,000 locals), but
its 552 emerald green miles are awash year-round with cascading
waterfalls, tropical rain forests and rare flowering plants.
Discover the Unexpected
Even first-time vacationers may find themselves unexpectedly familiar with
Kauai, thanks to the entertainment industry’s extensive use of the island’s
unforgettable scenery, from the romantic beach scenes of South Pacific to
the striking red and green hues of Waimea Canyon in Jurassic Park.
For a unforgettable view of the island’s beauty, book a helicopter tour and
send clients soaring over the vast chasms of the 3,567-foot-deep Waimea
Canyon (a.k.a., “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific”), over the ocean for
a spectacular view of the towering cliffs of the 17-mile Napali Coast and
above the dramatic Wailua Falls. A guided Jeep tour through the dense
rain forest is an eye-popping adventure that brings clients up close and
photo-op personal with unique birds, plants and animals.
The island is a magnet for adventure tourists, who can kayak along Hawaii’s only navigable rivers or brave the ocean for an unforgettable trip
along the Napali coast. Other one-of-a-kind Kauai adventures include
mountain tubing through the island’s miles of water flumes or zip lining
above the island’s lush rainforests.

eastern tip), offering non-stop flights from San Jose and Oakland.
