BRINGING THE PAST TO LIFE
The first humans arrived on the island in the fourth or fifth century A.D. These trans-Pacific settlers are believed to have traveled from as far away as Micronesia in their traditional canoes, navigating by their knowledge of astronomy, and landing their canoes on the virgin beaches of Hawaii.
On Kauai, a string of small fishing villages on the Na Pali Coast were founded. These remote communities relied on harvesting the fish from the sea, and cultivating nutritious taro in the fertile soil. As western settlers reshaped the island culture and industry these villages died out.
Our Captains will share local Kauai History while on the adventures. The stories unfold in an amazing environment with ocean life and scenery unlike anywhere else.
