Know More about this tour

Start the day with a pickup from your Poipu Beach area hotel in the morning or afternoon, depending on the day chosen. A professional archaeologist will collect passengers in a comfortable "Tortoise" Ford Transit van, and start with a visually presented background of the south shore of Kauai.

Travel through the old sugar cane fields, to the area of the Makauwahi Cave Reserve. First, tour the cave itself, then have a well earned provided snack. Next, hike to an amazing lookout and see a wide range of native plants and other ecological wonders. The trek will then visit the "weeders", or our tortoises, and hopefully see several endangered animals in the reserve Taro Fields before being returned to your accommodations.
