Kauai scuba diving is amongst some of the most beautiful in the world.
Kauai is the oldest and most northern of the Hawaiian Islands. A tropical paradise surrounded by the Pacific Ocean's sparkling waters. Referred to as the Garden Isle, every part of the island has lush rainforests and radiant flora. Most visitors gravitate to the south shore or the north shore. The north shore is pure bliss for quiet relaxing. However, if you prefer a more active vacation the south shore is known for its excellent beaches and activities such as Kauai scuba, snorkeling, diving, swimming and just plain lazing about in the sun. Shipwreck Beach has excellent surf also.
When you are ready to pick your towel up off the sand, make your way to one of the eight golf courses that are sprinkled throughout the Garden Isle. Three of the top five courses in Hawaii are found in Kauai, so why not test your accuracy and nerves on a challenging and scenically breathtaking course. Poipu Bay Golf Course, a Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design, brings the ocean winds into play to make for a difficult test of skill while also highlighting any weaknesses in your game. Kauai Lagoons, designed by Jack Nicklaus, is another excellent option whose dramatic cliffs, expansive ravines, and acres of tropical lagoons are designed to throw off the game of even the most experienced players.
The beauty of Kauai was not only meant to be admired, it was also meant to be explored by visitors of the island. There are hiking trails interspersed throughout the island so visitors can venture into the ninety percent of the island that is not accessible by road. One of the first trails any first time visitor should explore is the five-mile Kukui Trail that takes visitors to the bottom of the Waimea Canyon via the shortest route. Beginning off the Iliau Loop Trail, hikers are rewarded with a spectacular swimming hole at the bottom and breathtaking views of the canyon throughout the journey. Kuilau Ridge Trail offers a more encompassing view of Kauai’s allure by taking hikers on a four mile trip past glistening waterfalls and an abundance of flora.
There are many types of snorkeling and diving activities based in Hawaii to cater to all skill levels. Here are just a few:
Kauai scuba diving activities such as all day trips above a 65 foot catamaran heading north along the Napali coast. Pass lush valleys, sea caves and waterfalls while hearing the history of the coast. Then head across the channel to the island of Ni'ihau to choose a snorkeling spot. The catamaran's crew will instruct and assist you with snorkeling, then relax and watch the aquatic world go past.
A raft trip along the Na Pali coast featuring historical and cultural narration with hiking amongst ancient archaeological remains of a Hawaiian fishing village. With diving and snorkeling among a protected beach teeming with coral formations, fish and other marine life.
Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is a great place for Oahu snorkeling, a natural crescent beach in an extinct volcano. Trips from 1 hour to all day are available, and this location suits beginner through to advanced divers and snorkelers.
