Top Kauai

I need to give you these instructions before you can really enjoy this. First upload this video and pause it. Them proceed to this video:  Taking off from Kauai in a powered hang glider and mute it. Now play both videos, the former being the audio and the latter being the visual. This is Top Kauai.

Kauai is a beautiful Hawaiian Island, one of Hawaii’s fourth largest main islands in the archipelago. It’s also one of the oldest main islands being approximately six million years old.

Here are some fun facts that you can ‘wow’ you’re friends with at a bar

  • legendary home of the Menehune, a mythical race of very small people who were expert engineers. (huh…that is so weird, I feel like we should just stop the list here)
  • Kauai is the largest coffee plantation in the US (a big deal here because all we drink is coffee in the office)
  • Kauai grows more taro than any other island. (I love taro!)
  • the only island without the mongoose
  • Kilauea Lighthouse has the largest clamshell lens.
But back to the video, it’s Ryan (CEO of Reserve123) on a motorized hang glider. I don’t know if he’s in orange or blue, but he’s up there. He’s in orange. It looks so much fun, he may still be up there enjoying the sights.

Amazing Views in Beautiful Kauai

Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities
Hawaii has lots of beautiful islands to choose from, but if you can only visit one, choose Kauai.  The oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, the “Garden Isle” has been featured in many movies including the animated film “Lilo & Stitch” and the dinosaur flick “Jurassic Park.”  As you arrive on the island you are sure to be taken aback by the sheer magnificence of it all, and to be certain that you see everything there is to see it is suggested that you take a guided tour.

On one of the many helicopter tours available, you can marvel at the gorgeous scenery from above, which is an opportunity that you do not want to miss.  There is nothing quite like the high you will feel as you soar above the islands and experience them from all angles.  You will have the chance to see Nawiliwili Harbor, Waimea Canyon, and Menehune Fishpond, which is rumored to have been built by leprechauns entirely in one night.  You will also float over Kipu Kai and the Tunnel of Trees, as well as Olokele Canyon and Na Pali.

If you are looking to have your fun on the ground, consider taking an ATV tour and navigating your way through thick vegetation to the Kahili Mountain Range or to the Koloa Plantation, depending on which tour you choose.  With the latter, you may even get to see a spectacular whale show as you travel along the Poipu shoreline.  This typically happens from December through March.  The former features amazing views of a private waterfall which, if you are feeling adventurous, you can go cliff-jumping near later in the day.

Visit Kauai and you will be in for the experience of a lifetime.  Don’t forget to bring extra film for your camera since you will be snapping continuously from beginning to end, and keep an eye on www.kauaitours.net for more exciting options for your Hawaiian vacation.

Sail the Open Sea

Monday, September 29th, 2008

If your vacation brings you to a location where a gentle breeze is common along beautiful smooth waters, then taking a ride aboard a sailboat would be an excellent choice.  No matter where you decide to spend your holiday, taking time out to enjoy yourself on the open water will be one of the best decisions you could make.

From one side of the country to the other, Sailboat Tours offers luxurious rides where you can relax, enjoy the scenery, and add a bit of adventure to your vacation.

One of the most popular tours is the Day Sail on San Francisco Bay.  The boat will take you right by Alcatraz Island where the infamous federal prison is located.  You will receive amazing views as you pass under the Golden Gate Bridge.  Depending on your preference, you can sail in the afternoon and check out all the sights, or drift through the water at sunset and witness the glowing sun set over the sparkling water.

The NaPali Snorkel Picnic Sail of Kauai is another fabulous sailing excursion.  The boat explores the rugged NaPali coast where you will see waterfalls and lava tubes.  The guide is extremely knowledgeable on the area and can let you in on the secret ancient legends of the civilizations that once inhabited NaPali.  Breakfast and lunch picnics are included as well as snorkel instruction and gear.  So not only do you get to take in the sights of the coastline but a chance to explore the crystal clear waters as well.

For a bit of romance during your stay in Key West, the Champagne Sunset Cruise is perfect.  The boat takes you along the smooth ocean so you can experience true bliss as you watch the large orange sun appear to melt into the heavenly waters.  Your seat in front of the breathtaking sunset is to die for. 

In Chicago, you can travel in the evening aboard a large and lavish sailboat in hopes of sighting the largest mammals on our planet.  This whale watching cruise is one-of-a-kind and is a wonderful way to spend time with your family on the open water.  The cruise along Lake Michigan is great place to spot some whales and create memories to last a lifetime.

Hawaii’s Big Island is filled with energy. Polynesian legend claims the goddess Pele gave volcanic birth to the Islands of Aloha. Hawaii’s Big Island is her latest and greatest creation, and it is still warm from its fiery birth. The Big Island is twice the size of its sisters combined, and growing every day as its active volcano, Kilauea, sends new land to a steamy meeting with the ocean 4,000 feet below. There are countless waterfalls feeding rainforests, and the landscape is more like that of a fantasy. There are massive black lava fields that remind you of the island’s relative youth, and the numerous uncrowded beaches let you catch your breath amidst unspoiled beauty.

Lanai Tours and Activities

Lana’i is a place of pristine, primal beauty, Hawaii’s “Most Enticing Island” where you can walk a mile on a beach without seeing another person. The former site of one of Hawaii’s major pineapple plantations, Lana’i has been transformed into a destination known, and coveted, by discerning travelers from all points of the compass.

Lana’i visitors can choose from two world-class resort hotels or unique “local style” accommodations. Golfers will revel in the challenges offered by two distinctly different championship courses. Visit Lana’i and you will find unexpected treasures joyfully shared by a people who are genuine and kind. We provide sightseeing day tours to Lana’i from Maui.
