Ancient Kauai Excursions

Join us for a magical excursion in an incredibly beautiful part of the Garden Island. So many places have been developed and modified, that few remnants of an earlier time remain. Our tour van picks up our guests every day in the Poipu Beach area, and brings them into another world and another time. Professional Archaeologist guides take you through the past on the south shore of Kauai. Enjoy refreshments with us in a truly amazing and natural setting as we help you understand this extraordinary place.

The Makauwahi Cave Reserve is a rare limestone cave and sinkhole system. We tour the cave and surrounding area and learn about the ancient island ecology. We begin 10,000 years ago, and work our way forward. Our private tours allow you to see deeper into this magical place.

The Cave Reserve defines the local history of the south shore of Kauai. Join us as we journey through time, from Ice Ages, to the arrival of the Polynesians, to the historic Koloa sugar mill to today. What is re-wilding? Come find out! Ancient seed types, like those recovered from excavations on site are being grown in the native plant nursery, and are cultivated and planted in and around the reserve.

Trained archeologists lead all tours. This ensures an authentic experience journeying through time! Tour guides are also knowledgeable about native plants and animals, geology and where to find the best poke on the island! Learn about rare native plants, traditional Hawaiian farming techniques (taro loi), and feel the soft sands of ancient dunes. December through April, humpback whales breaching and blowing are a common site from vistas along the tour! Join us for an adventure you will not soon forget!!
