Video Transcript

This video segment is going to do with the island of Kauai.

The activities that exist there, but primarily the activities that exist as they relate to the specific geography that we have on the island. All of the different islands of Kauai will all have similar types of Activities that you will be able to get a Luau on any them, you'll be able to take a Helicopter or Air Tour, you'll be able to go Scuba Diving and taking a Kayak, ATV Tour. These things are going to happen universally, Zip Lines on all the different islands but some islands, just because of their specific nature as they were formed make particular Activities that you could participate more advantageous.

That's kind of what I would like to focus on the island of Kauai. These are some tours that I think would be really good to do if I'm on Kauai because you cannot find anything better on any of the other islands in terms of these categories of Activities.

Of the major islands, Kauai is really the one of the largest and the first island to be formed. In conjunction with its companion island which is over here, the island of Ni'ihau. The island of Kauai is the oldest, it was formed from a hotspot and the crack in the earth that allowed lava to flow in and it created different islands Oahu, Maui, and The Big Island and so on. It has been extinct now for five million years. The forces of nature which are tremendous in Kauai have carved and shaped it into some beautiful conditions. I guess that should be mentioned at this point that this island, in particular, is the furthest up north of the big islands of the Hawaiian chain and it's the first place that you actually get any kind of real weather, any kind of wave conditions and rain is going to be in Kauai. There's nothing to buffer it, there's no landmass anywhere near from 2000 miles that's going to separate or protect it from the natural elements. It is continuously being buffered by the elements. In the last five million years what that has meant, it has been carved and etched into this incredible sculpture that is just amazing to behold. Essentially but it looks like from the very top here, we've got Mount Waialeale. Generally speaking, this is the wettest spot on earth. Usually around 460 inches a year, but it goes up and down it changes hands with other places in terms of being the wettest, I think in the last decade or so it's actually that award has gone to a place in India. A couple of times it has been Puu Kukui on the island of Maui. It's definitely extremely wet and one of wettest places in the globe.

From here, you've got a peak that comes up and then you've got valleys that kind of go down like ridges to the sea. They are often very shaped and sculpted and has narrow passageways on top that allows a person to walk certain distance but not very far. There's also a lot of pinnacles, just areas that have been eroded away and you've got a spire that you will see. This is typical throughout the north shore of Kauai. This one area that's on the north coast here which is very famous and very beautiful. It is one of the beautiful and most spectacular wonders of the world and that is called the Na Pali Coast.

The Na Pali Coast is inaccessible by any other way but by Air or sea, or actually Hiking in through there. There's a roadway that happens on the island that ends here. You would land in Lihue, you could go this far and you can't go any farther. There's no way to get a road in there, or you could go this way and get this far on this side you've got 11 miles stretch that is not going to able to be entered in any other way but by Air, sea or by Hiking. This is an absolutely spectacular place and a place that we've sent many people to go by sea in one way or another. Let's don't get ahead of ourselves here, the other area that is well-known in Kauai that was caused by all this erosion and so on is the area in here which is known as the Waimea Canyon. This is also called the Grand Canyon of Kauai and it's very similar to the Grand Canyon that you'll find in Arizona, a lot of the layer that you will see and huge depth of the canyon. It's absolutely gorgeous and it's a place that you'll probably want to see at some point in time if you're going to Kauai.

The other aspect of what nature has done with regard to chiseling and making Kauai what it is today is the fact that you've got these giant mountains here, and then this ridgeline here.

This side of it all of the sudden, everything slopes down to this very flat plain area. It's called an alluvial plain, it's where all of the tremendous amounts of water that has carved a way that tops of these mountains have delivered that silk and soil down to this area. It's all come down rushing down to the bottom and then kind of smooths itself out as it goes all the way to the coastline in this alluvial plain. Essentially what you've got is a slightly a flat area, it has a slight tilt to it and you've got this tremendous amount of water that's rushing off on these mountains and then all of the sudden finding itself on this plain area, and it creates rivers. These rivers wind their way very slowly and a serpentine fashioned and finally end up in the ocean.

One of the famous of these rivers is the Wailua River which ends up in the town of Waialua.

Typically, these are quite wide rivers and on either side, they're just completely jungle. As soon as you get on the river and kind of work your way back a little bit, you can't see the coastline anymore. All you could see is the river and the riverbanks, you honestly feel like you're on some place really foreign. You may as will be in Bolivia or somewhere, or in the Amazon. It is somewhere in the incredible rainforest that you might see in South America. ;In any event, it's very gorgeous and the importance of these rivers as it regards to activities that we can provide for people going to Kauai. These are truly the only navigable rivers with a slight exception of a couple smaller ones in Oahu. The only navigable rivers that we have in Hawaii.

Keeping that in mind, you want to look for if you have a chance to go various islands and there are certain things that you want to do on one or another. There are some that you'll really want to concentrate on doing when you come to Kauai. The first is the Helicopter or Air Tours because it is just the most magnificent place that you'll probably ever see from a helicopter. Just gorgeous giant valleys and the ravines and cliffs and the Na Pali Coast, rivers, and just green lush jungle areas. You want to take a Helicopter when you get to Kauai. That would be a great place.

They almost all leave from Lihue and them almost all do kind of a circle. You can see the island is a little bit like a circle, and it's perfect for the hour flights that we have. We do have smaller ones and others that are a little bit longer, but really for an hour flight. It's just perfect You can get from Lihue, you can go all away around the island and then land back at Lihue. The main thing is you're going to go up and you're able to see the Na Pali Coastline.

Helicopters, that's one thing that you want to keep in mind. We're going to do other videos that you'll be able to see that deal specifically with Helicopters in Kauai and we can go on to those in detail, but just remember that helicopters are a good place to do you helicopter flight or Air Tour.

The other thing that is important to remember about the activities as they relate the geography of Kauai is that, you might want to do something on the water that takes you to the Na Pali Coastline.

That might be a Snorkel trip, it might be a Dinner Cruise, a Sunset Sail, a Whale Watch that gets up there.

In some way, this is a fantastic thing to see, something you don't want to miss if you have to, and you'll not find anything like this coastline anywhere else not only in Hawaii, but anywhere else on the planet.

The third thing that is specific about Kauai that you might consider doing is because it has these navigable rivers. You may want to take an opportunity to do one of the Kayak Tours that we have that will take you from the ocean, the mouth of the rivers, head you back up into this beautiful jungles. Usually a couple of miles or so on, and quite often we have in conjunction with the actual Kayaking. You're going to get out and kind of be in a middle of a rainforest in the Pacific, do a little Hiking and maybe up to a waterfall.

That's the geography as it relates specifically the some of the Activities that we have as mentioned. We have other activities, these are not the only ones but if you're wanting to dovetail your experience with activities with the specific geography of Kauai. These are the activities you want to concentrate on.

I just viewed this video made just moments ago and realized that at one point, I have mistakenly mentioned or said that the island of Kauai was the largest of the islands. I have meant to it that point say that it's the oldest. I just want to correct that rather than going back and doing the entire video over for that one error. My apologies.
