How to Spend 2 Days on Kauai

How to Spend 2 Days on Kauai

With two full days on Kauai, you have time to explore both sides of the island including its pristine beaches, coastal towns, hidden waterfalls, and more. Take advantage of multi-adventure tours and introduce try something new like sailing or paddle boarding. Here’s how to make the most of your two days on Kauai. 

Day 1: Visit Waimea Canyon and the South Shore

**Morning:**Spend your first day on Kauai taking in the sights at Waimea Canyon State Park, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Book a tour of top Waimea sights to skip navigating the steep and winding roads on your own and just sit back and enjoy the scenery. 

**Afternoon:**Head to Poipu Beach, the most popular beach on the South Shore, to laze away the afternoon. If you’d rather stay active, opt for a combo hiking and kayaking adventure on the Wailua River, an ATV tour, or zipline adventure. 

**Night:**Go all out your first night in Kauai with a traditional Hawaiian luau. Dine on a banquet of roast pig, lomi lomi salmon, and other regional favorites under the stars while enjoying live drumming, songs, and dancing from cultures all across Polynesia. 

Day 2: Explore the Na Pali Coast and Kauai’s North Shore

**Morning:**Kick off your exploration of the North Shore with an early morning helicopter tour through the lush valleys and dramatic cliffs of Kauai’s Na Pali Coast. If you’d rather stay grounded, choose a sea kayak, sailing, or snorkeling tour of the coast, or perhaps head out on the Kalalau trail on your own. 

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon in Hanalei Town browsing the surf shops, art galleries, craft shops, and more. Hanalei Bay is a great place to learn how to surf, and stand-up paddleboarding is popular on the Hanalei River. Rent gear in town or book a surf lesson or guided kayak and snorkel tour. 

**Night:**On your final night in Kauai, splurge on a sunset dinner cruise off the Na Pali Coast. Enjoy a traditional Hawaiian feast while taking in the views of the breathtaking Na Pali Coast from the water. Most tours include cocktails, dessert, and traditional Hawaiian tunes.

Are you looking for a Napali Coast sightseeing and snorkeling adventure departing from Hanalei Bay? Look no further! We’re the only company on Kauai permitted to operate raft boat tours from Kauai’s iconic north shore and we’d be stoked to take you out on a wet and wild ocean excursion. Within minutes of departing, we’ll be into the heart and soul of the sacred, historical, and stunning Napali Coast, keeping our eyes peeled for Hawaiian spinner dolphins, turtles, and sea birds. Our boats are small enough to maneuver into sea caves and under waterfalls, and powerful enough to do so safely and with confidence. With forward-facing seating, bathrooms, and a fresh-water shower, our vessels offer more creature comfort than many other raft-style boats. We’ll learn about the coast, swim, snorkel, relax, eat sandwiches, and just generally bask in the glory of the Napali Coast. Join us on this convenient four-hour ocean excursion that wastes no time and packs maximum action into every moment.
