To participate in any of our on island activities, all travelers arriving to Hawaii must complete the mandatory 14-day quarantine, and the most up-to-date information regarding COVID-19 in Hawaii can be found here.

Kauai welcomes families with fun horseback tours, thrilling kayaking, tubing, air tours and memorable waterfall swims. True to its reputation, the island boasts incredible outdoor activities for guests of all ages, at a pace that won't leave anyone behind. Parents traveling with children can rest easy knowing that most of Kaui's major attractions, like Waimea Canyon, the Na Pali Coast and the Wailua River, are safe to enjoy in a number of fun ways.
Pro Tips
  • - Consider renting a car. The downside to Kauai's untouched natural condition is limited transportation options. Having your own vehicle on hand will expand your options enormously, and make it easier to get around with younger children.
  • - Dress appropriately. Although Kauai is safe to explore, you should at least bring a pair of sneakers that can get a bit dirty.
