Day Two: Sunday, January 05 - South Shore Tour
Breakfast: Meal in hotel dining room.

Morning: Visit the eastside of the island. Your Naturalist today will be noted geoscientist, Chuck Blay who earned his Ph.D. in geology from Indiana University. Chuck’s first encounter with Kauai was in the late 70’s and in 1986 he walked and investigated the 111 miles of the island’s perimeter. Chuck co-authored the book Kauai’s Geologic History: A Simplified Guide, which provides a comprehensive summary of the geologic origins of the Hawaiian Island and the island of Kauai. Among other studies he presently investigating the Lithified Sand Dunes of Kauai’s Mahaulepu Coastal Area and the Character of Coral/Algal Fringing Reefs of Kauai. Chuck is one of Kauai’s most noted naturalists and field interpreters. Your day with Chuck will be awe-inspiring and his enthusiasm for the ‘aina (land), culture and history of Kaua’i, will be infectious. Maha`ulepu Beach: This is the site where King Kamehameha I, tried to capture the Island of Kaua’i, but failed in his attempt in 1796 due to a violent storm that forced his retreat. Moir Gardens Koloa Landing: Although, Koloa Landing is now a very popular dive spot, this historic site was – until this century- Kauai’s main port. Whaling ships used to winter here, and all goods brought to Kaua’i came through either Koloa Landing or Waimea.

Lunch: Lunch at Poipu Beach Park

Afternoon: Allerton Garden (Lawa`i Kai) lies between the Pacific Ocean and the McBryde Garden in the Lawa`i Valley, on the south shore. It is a garden paradise, transformed through time by the hands of a Hawaiian Queen, by a sugar plantation magnate, and most significantly by an artist and an architect. A series of garden rooms unfold between the Lawa`i Stream and the cliffs of the Valley. Towering rainforest trees with tall curving roots grow near bronze mermaids, a grove of swaying golden bamboo, a cut-flower garden, and tropical fruit trees. Here the focus is on landscape design, but among the plantings are botanically important species of the tropics, including varieties of palms, ki (ti), heliconias, and gingers.

Dinner: Meal in hotel dining room.

Evening: Introduction to Kaua’i. Tonight, you’ll be introduced to the history, culture and the environment of Kauai. Once known as the land where sugar was king, the island is also affectionately called the “Garden Island”, because this Island, more than any other Hawaiian island, represents the stereotypical “Garden of Eden” with its lush carpets of green and tropical island beauty. Kaua’i has abundant valleys high cascading waterfalls, upland rain forests dense with tropical vegetation and high trees alive with rare birdlife. There are arid desert canyons populated with adapted plant life, mountain ridge trails, rivers and remote interior valleys and tranquil beaches. The coral reefs are filled with tropical fish and other diverse forms of marine life. Kauai’s tranquil island beauty will enrapture your imagination and meet all of your expectations with its intimate beauty and warm community.

Day Three: Monday, January 06 - Waimea Canyon Lookout and West Side Technology Ce...
Breakfast: Meal in hotel dining room.

Morning: Your second full day on the Garden Isle will take you to West Side Technology Center and Waimea Canyon which is the largest canyon in the Pacific. The West Side Technology Center offers a unique opportunity to explore Kauai`i’s engineering history. Using the theme, “Enduring Engineering,” you’ll be able to follow cultural and historic photographs showing the development of engineering on Kaua`i from ancient days to modern times and from the Polynesian voyagers to NASA’s most sophisticated technology. The museum blends history with the near by Pacific Missile Range Facility. The center is representative of the eclectic mix that gives definition to the tiny communities that co-mingle with the military base situated on this end of the island. The Waimea canyon is approximately ten miles (16km) long and up to 3,000 feet (900m) deep and it was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit. The canyon was formed by a deep incision of the Waimea River arising from the extreme rainfall on the island’s central peak, The lines in the canyon walls depict different volcanic eruptions and lava flows that have occurred over the centuries. Even though Waimea Canyon is smaller than the Grand Canyon of Arizona, we think you’ll agree that Waimea Canyon rivals the beauty in Arizona. Make sure you bring some light rain gear because some of the lookouts are among the wettest places on earth. Bring your cameras, too, because this will truly be one of your favorite photo opportunities.

Lunch: Lunch at Koke`e State Park.

The main house is in pristine condition with walls and a staircase made of native Koa wood. Also on the grounds is a wash house, tea house, and guest cottage.
