Planning Your Trip To Kauai – Things to Consider

planning a trip to kauai

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Kauai is the perfect place for you. This breathtaking island offers something for everyone – from lush rainforests and dramatic waterfalls to world-famous beaches and championship golf courses. To get the most out of your trip, it’s important to plan ahead. In this blog post, we will outline some of the things you should consider when planning your visit to Kauai!

When Should You Plan To Visit Kauai?

The island of Kauai offers year-round warm weather, making it a great destination any time of year. However, peak travel times are generally between mid-December and April. This is also the best whale watching time, so if you want to see these magnificent creatures make sure to plan your visit during this time.

If you’re looking to avoid the crowds (and save some money), consider planning your trip for May or September when there are generally fewer travelers.

Where To Go During Your Stay

There are so many amazing places to see on Kauai! We recommend taking a trip to the Waimea Canyon, hiking the Kalalau Trail, visiting the Wailua River State Park, and exploring the Na Pali Coast. The best ways to explore the Na Pali Coast are by air or boat. If you’re looking to get out on the water, we at Kauai Sea Tours offer a wide variety of boat and raft tours to explore the Na Pali Coast. Make sure to check out our all tours page to find the one that is perfect for you.

Of course, no trip to Kauai would be complete without spending some time at one of the island’s world-famous beaches. Poipu Beach and Hanalei Bay are two breathtaking locations that are worth checking out.

Planning Your Kauai Activities

There are endless activities to keep you busy on Kauai. If you’re looking for some adrenaline-pumping adventure, consider booking a zip line tour or ATV rental. For a more relaxing activity, we recommend taking a Kauai Plantation Railway Tour or booking a spa day.

Not to be biased, but we believe that one of the best activities is a Kauai boat tour or Kauai raft tour. We have a wide range of tours that allow you to explore hidden beaches of the Na Pali Coastline. You can snorkel with the tropical fish and rays, enjoy the majesty of Humpback whale watching, or just relax on a romantic sunset dinner cruise.

No matter what you’re looking for, there’s sure to be an activity that’s perfect for you during your stay on Kauai! We hope this blog post helps plan your dream vacation. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out and let us help you get the most out of your Kauai vacation with a boat or raft adventure.
