Kauai is a beautiful island made up of the friendliest people. Combine this with so many wonderful activities and you have an outstanding combination that only results in one thing—a whole lot of fun! Some of the most popular activities include swimming, surfing, sunbathing, helicopter tours, golfing, kayaking, SCUBA, ocean tours, and more. There is so much to do on Kauai that you simply cannot get bored because there is always something new and exciting to do.
Since there are so many activities to enjoy each one will be discussed in detail. That way you can determine which activities you are most interested in and start planning your Kauai vacation in detail.
Keep in mind that you should always book directly with the company providing the tour or activity. Many times you will save money doing this. In fact, you can probably even find a discount or coupon for booking direct and save even more money. There are lots of booths and brokers who go out and about to get you to sign up for different tours and activities. They usually lure you in with free maps or information about the island. Once you get close they will try and book every tour and activity offered on Kauai. You can go this route, but just know you will pay more and booking direct is generally more secure and cheaper.
Also keep in mind that the booths trying to sign you up for activities can become aggressive, offer you free activities for taking a tour of a timeshare, and the like. Believe me, unless you actually plan on buying a timeshare don’t trade a free day of your vacation for a free activity. It really isn’t worth it, that is unless you are actually on Kauai to buy a timeshare. Your time is valuable and you will seriously become frustrated if you get pulled in by these guys. Simply try to book direct with the tour or activity company. That way you are in charge of who you book with, the activities you will be paying for, and will more than likely save your money!
If you do choose to pay these booths for your activities keep in mind the different companies they are recommending. They are more than likely recommending a specific company because that company pays the highest commission and is not necessarily the best company for that particular activity. What you will really want to do is evaluate the different companies on the Internet to see which ones are good, read reviews of past users, and then make the best decision for you. Many times you will choose a different company that works better for you and save money at the same time!
There are so many activities on Kauai that it is easy to get confused and just sign up for whatever you are presented with. However, if you put forth a little effort you will find more activities than you ever imagined and have more fun on your Kauai vacation.
