Just leaving everything else behind and venturing out to the oceans can be such a relaxing, yet exhilarating activity. So, if you’re looking forward to your next vacation or just a weekend getaway with friends and loved ones, a boat tour is something you should have on your to-do list. And, where better to have it all than Kauai Hawaii?
Known as the Garden Isle, Kauai is Hawaii’s 4th largest Island and the 21st largest in all of the United States. Its view is both majestic and breath-taking, with lush landscape and vegetation. However, it is its seascape, colourful water bodies and vast coastline that is the main attraction for thousands of people who visit the Island each year. To get the best of this amazing gift of nature, there are a number of activities you can engage in, such as snorkelling, boat cruise, Catamaran cruise, and so on.
Let’s see some of these activities and a number of tour providers that offer them.
- Explore Kauai Scuba
This heart-racing and mind-blowing adventure is one of the craziest ways to explore Kauai’s vast waters. The tour, usually comprising not more than 6 people, is a magnificent journey through ancient lava tubes and Hawaii’s exclusive Pacific reefs and their fish. The silence opens you up to the life of one of Hawaii’s oldest Islands, often kicked back to reality by the sound of your own bubbles.
