Feel the Power of the Ocean on this Kauaʻi Trail

Smell the salt air as crashing waves explode below you. The compacting of air within the cliffs creates a special surprise. Our Kauaʻi hike will take us to a promontory, where we will see impressive views of Hāʻupu Mountain, Kawelikoa Point, and deep into the Kaua’i Channel in the direction of Oʻahu (which you can see at 108 miles away on extremely clear days).

Maha’ulepu (MA·HA ule·PU) is an area rich in natural and cultural history. Learn about the epic land and sea battle that was fought and won here by the people of Kauaʻi in the 1300s, giving it the name Maha’ulepu which literally means “and falling together.”

As one of the last remaining stretches of undeveloped coastline on the South Shore, the Maha’ulepu area is still fiercely protected by locals, who recognise its unique historical significance and aesthetic value; and fear more resort development.

On Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun, or by special request, our visit will include a guided tour of the nearby Makauwahi Cave Reserve to see Hawaii’s largest limestone cave and richest fossil site! We will also have an opportunity to visit with giant land tortoises that are doing their part to help restore native plants.

Know you’ll be doing your part, as 10% of every Kauaʻi tour will be donated to Makauwahi Cave Reserve and/or Mālama Maha’ulepu.

Snorkeling Adventure Add-On:

Description of image






After the hike, you will be given the option to snorkel at a beautiful South Shore location. Snorkeling will add approximately two hours to tour duration. If you choose this option, please pack a lunch or ask your guide about stopping quickly at a local spot.


For an additional fee the guide will pick up and drop off snorkeling gear for you. Please note that we cannot guarantee fit if you are not there in person to try on the gear (provide us with your approximate foot and face sizes and we will do our best). Add 1.5 – 1.75 hours to tour duration if we will be providing the snorkel gear for you or if you will be arriving with your own gear (we can suggest snorkel gear rental shops near you).
