Loved the Smith family Luau and river cruise to the grotto here. I booked directly through Smiths Kauai. An old and authentic Luau. Great food and show. Transportation is available to the Luau when you book, at a fraction of what the taxi fare is.

Waimea Canyon in the early morning was breath taking! It truly is the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Shipwreck beach was the perfect place to finish our vacation. If you go when the king tides are there, where a one piece, clothing is not optional but the current and tide pull of the ocean doesn't know that! I was in the water for about 15 minutes before I realized nature was winning and wanted my bathing suit bottoms as a trophy.

This was my favorite island. We attended the Smith Family luau. Juan, our tour operator from Gray Line was great! We rode in an air conditioned motor coach bus. The ride up to the Luau was great. Juan gave us a short lesson in the Hawaiian language, the history of Hawaii and he shared many of his childhood experiences growing up on the island with us. We also saw "the Sleeping Giant" and saw wind surfers. It was great! The Luau and show was great and very entertaining. Although I did not watch the unearthing of the pig, I saw where it was buried and saw it being unearthed from a distance. It was served at dinner, and my sister and others said it was delicious. We saw the beautiful grounds while riding on a tram. The grounds are beautiful! Service before, during and after dinner was wonderful. This was one of the best tours I have ever been on.

This was our favorite island! Take the helicopter ride! We did the 6 hr trip. 55 minutes in the air, then a van ride through the island and "Domi" was our guide. He was amazing! Go for it!

This, in our opinion, was the nicest port as it has easy access to everything and rental car shuttle service. It also is one of the most, if not, the most beautiful Hawaiian islands.
