(If You're Coming To Hawaii on A Cruise Ship This Page Will Save You Time & Money.)


Although there are a number of cruise ships that visit Kauai we have focused primarily here on the Pride of America cruise ship from Norwegian Cruise Lines because they are the ones that arrive most frequently on the island and on a yearly basis carry the most people. All the tours we have listed below in our Cruise Ship Activity Finder are specific to the Pride of America Cruise. Many of these same tours may be applicable as shore excursions for other cruise line companies but you will need to call us for exact details as the various boats offer completely different schedules and are not always in exact alignment with shore excursion timing.



Shore Excursions for the Pride of America on the island of Kauai.

The Pride of America Cruise Ship leaves the port of Kailua-Kona on Wednesday at 5:30pm and travels all night to arrive in Kauai at the port of Nawiliwili on Thursday at 8:00am. The ship will remain in port overnight and depart for the last leg of its journey back to Oahu at 2:00pm on Friday. Some shore excursions will be available for you for late morning, afternoon and evening tours on Thursdays and some will be available for the early and mid-morning on Friday. You will be able to see below using our Cruise Ship Activity Finder those tours that will arrange for pick-up directly at the ship or within a 5-7 minute walk from the pier and those that will be available to you via rent-a-car.

  • Many tours will provide you with pick-up directly at the boat dock.
    View all shore excursions on Kauai that will pick you up right at the dock.


  • An additional number of tours and activities are available to you while you are docked in Nawiliwili Harbor but will require a rent-a-car to drive to the event. Following is a list of tours that fall into this category. You can book these tours online or over the phone but a rent-a-car must be booked at the same time so you will be able to drive to the departure point of the activity. Please indicate when you make a tour booking that you would like us to arrange for a car. We often have a choice of rent-a-car models to choose from but we will always choose the one for you that is the least expensive price based upon the number of passengers unless you explain to us that you would prefer a price upgrade.
    View all Kauai shore excursions you can drive to if you arrange for us to provide you with a rent-a-car.

    Overnight parking: If you are planning to rent a car on Thursday of the cruise ship schedule so you can catch an early tour on Friday morning you will need to park your rent-a-car near the ship on Thursday evening. For cruise ship overnight parking in Nawiliwili Harbor, there is a secure parking lot at the pier called "Anchor Cove". It is in the Anchor Cove Shopping Center, at 3416 Rice Street - just a very short walk from the Cruise Terminal. It is $20/day and includes in/out privileges. Their phone number is 808 634-9917.


Disclaimer: Tom Barefoot's Tours will not be responsible for cancellation charges imposed by tours that were booked but not attended because of problems regarding rent-a-cars, taxis, shuttle services or any other form of transportation. Charges for missed tours within 24 hours of the departure time of the tour are always the total cost of the ticket. Any complications arising by missing the departures of Pride of America from any port due to transportation issues or any other reason are fully the responsibility of the cruise passengers.
