Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

If you are looking for a ride to a waterfall, Princeville Ranch is the one! Even if you are staying on the South Shore of Kauai this ride is very much worth the scenic drive to the North Shore. The waterfall ride does include a short but steep hike down a trail to get to the stream where you will enjoy a swim and a picnic lunch. This is an amazing, private waterfall with a fern-lined swimming hole! We also appreciate that Princeville Ranch encourages everyone to spread out so that you aren’t always in a line on the ride.

If you prefer a beach-oriented ride with ocean views, CJM is the one for you. They ride to a remote beach that you won’t be able to see any other way. They are located at the very end of Poipu Beach – a few miles beyond the Grand Hyatt.
