Princeville Ranch is one of the oldest working cattle ranches in Hawaii with spectacular views of Kauai’s mountains and offering diverse terrain that includes pastures, rainforest, and jungle. This really is a working cattle ranch that raises their own calves and you’ll likely encounter their herd along the way. Their horses are very well trained and respond well to rider instruction. Princeville Ranch Stables encourages you to take the horses off the trail and spread out so that you get more than just a nose to tail experience, which is something that we really appreciate.

3 Hour Waterfall Tour

Take a memorable journey across their ranch and visit a spectacular waterfall for a picnic and swim. This 3 hour tour is a walking-paced ride, but you are free to take the horses off the trail. The 3 hour ride is available as a PRIVATE ride for a higher rate.

Schedule: 8am, 9am, 12pm, 1pm

Note: This tour also involves a short but steep hike to the waterfall.

3 Hour Private Waterfall Ride

The same tour as the 3 hour waterfall tour, but operated as a private ride for just your group. Private tours may have a faster riding pace than the general tours; the trail guide will assess rider abilities and set an appropriate pace for your group’s abilities.

Note: This tour also involves a short but steep hike to the waterfall.

2 Hour Private Ride

The same riding experience as the 3 hour private tour, but without the hike to the waterfall and lunch. Minimum of 2 riders for private rides.

General Information
Schedule: Monday through Saturday. Closed on Sundays.

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.
