There’s countless ways to explore and take in the garden island. Whether you’re more of a kickback by the pool type, an airborne adventurer or anything in between, here are some new activities to keep you satisfied and occupied.
Maverick Helicopters, a division of Maverick Aviation Group, has expanded its tour operations in the Hawaiian Islands with the addition of aerial adventures on Kauai. Guests can choose from two helicopter experiences showcasing the Garden Island’s natural beauty: the Kauai Explorer and Kauai Discovery tours. Maverick Helicopters operates Airbus EC130 ECO-Star aircraft, which offer a spacious cabin seating up to seven passengers, voice-activated headsets, theater-style leather seating and wraparound windows for superior visibility.
Aqua Kauai Beach Resort is now offering poolside Dive-In Movies every Friday at dusk. Registered guests are invited to lounge poolside and enjoy a complimentary Hawaii-themed or Hawaii-filmed movie while stargazing as the night falls. Movie snacks are available for purchase.
Holo Holo Charters has teamed up with the National Tropical Botanical Garden (NTBG) for its Na Waiwai Garden and Sailing adventure tour. The new, guided land-and-sea tour takes guests on a walk through NTBG’s gardens to learn about the history of Hawaiian cultural sustainability practices, followed by a relaxing sunset dinner sail along Kauai’s south shore. Tickets for the tour are priced at $225 per person, plus tax. Fifty percent of all tour ticket sales go back to the nonprofit NTBG as a donation.
