Kauai Waterfalls, Kilauea Lighthouse, Hanalei, Hidden Beaches

Departing Lihue by private minivan, listen to your guide’s narration about Kauai's history, culture and the natural sights that make up the beautiful Garden Isle. The benefit of a private tour is that information is tailored to your interests, and you can ask any questions you may have. Make your first stop at Wailua Falls, made famous in the opening credits of the TV show Fantasy Island. Snap photos of the double cascade, which drops over 100 feet into the stream below, before continuing on to another stunner: Opaeka’a Falls. Located in Wailua River State Park, this 151-foot twin waterfall flows over basalt into a hidden pool. From the Wailua River Overlook, your private guide will point out a re-created ancient Hawaiian village below, used as a set in the movie Outbreak. For your next stop, you have a choice between the beautiful Smith's Tropical Paradise gardens or the Kauai HIndu Temple and monastery.  Then, you’re driven through Kapaa Town, passing by 100-year-old coconut trees on the way north. Hop out of the van to view the Anahola Mountains, looking for formations that resemble a gorilla, a turtle, a hippo and an elephant. We stop to see a beautiful secluded beach as we head further north. Next stop is the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse. From this cliffside vista point, you can observe seabirds and maybe even get an up-close look at the endangered Nene goose, the Hawaiian state bird. Keep your eyes open for humpback whales, too, during their migration from mid-December to mid-May. On a drive through the historical sugar plantation town of Kilauea, note the buildings made from stones taken from the sugar fields. Then head to Hanalei Town for lunch with options for every taste. (own expense). After lunch we visit  Hanalei Bay where we take a stroll on Hanalei Pier for more breathtaking mountain and waterfall views.  Next we stop for a picture of the historic Waioli Mission Church and take in the views from the Hanalei Valley Lookout. From here we head back to Lihue and along the way we can stop for the best shave on the island or enjoy delicious pure fruit frosties at Banana Joe's Fruit stand. Your memories of this special day will last a lifetime!

I recommend starting as early as possible to enjoy the park before all of the other visitors arrive. You can even choose a start time of 5 AM if you like. We will be exploring the volcano of Kilauea with many stops to include the smoking lava lake inside Kilauea Caldera, steam vents to enjoy the raw power of the heat beneath our feet, Kilauea Iki Crater, exploring past lava flows and amazing scenery. The duration of this tour is an estimate and can change based on how much you would like to explore VNP. Remember, this is YOUR tour and it is my goal to give you an experience of a lifetime.
