Best Kauai Outdoor Activities

Kauai ATV offers two tours, Kauai ATV Back Roads and Adventure tour as well as the all new Sky Bike tour! Koloa Zipline Kauai has a classic ziplining tour as well.

All three tours are a once in a lifetime opportunity located in the small town of Koala, on private property. Your tour will be an intimate experience with your family, friends, and Kauai’s hidden treasures.

ATV Tour of Kauai Outdoors 

The Kauai ATV tour will take you from mauka to makai on old sugar cane haul roads used in the plantation days. You’ll learn the history of the beloved Koloa town and share in the magic of Kauai.

Our Polaris UTVs will take you into a once-in-a-lifetime off-road adventure deep in the unseen, unspoiled backcountry of Kauai’s south shore.

Rain or shine, you will motor through thousands of acres on historic Grove Farm terrain. For 20 years we’ve shared our Garden Island playground with malihini(New-comers) and kama’aina(Native Hawaiins) alike.

Alongside the old Koloa Sugar Mill you will see classic Hollywood movie locations like Jurassic Park and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Kauai ATV makes Trip Advisor’s top five best atv tours! And has received only five star reviews! You can’t go wrong here. Don’t forget to wear something you don’t mind getting dirty! (Make sure your wearing close toed shoes and not wearing flip-flops)

Zipline Through Kauai Forests 

Koloa Zipline is Kauai’s longest zipline course featuring 3 of the longest lines on island including the half-mile Waita line.

What sets us apart from other ziplining companies is our Kauai’s only Ground School, which teaches you the basics of ziplining before the tour so you’ll be fully prepared before you take the leap.

Another factor is, Koloa Zipline is the only zipline tour on Kauai to offer a custom full torso Flyin’ Kaua’ian Harness which allows you to zip upside down, backward, head first, traditional or any other position you can imagine.

The course consists of 8 lines and lasts approximately 3.5 hours. Zip through the sets of Jurassic Park and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw!

We supply the helmets! Just don’t forget to wear close toed shoes!

Kauai Sky Bike Adventures

That’s right, Sky. Bike. Kauai’s Sky Bike tour brings you into the sky to hover over or race across Hawaii’s horizon. They are the ONLY skybikes in the entire United states. You’ll ride 700 feet across the water and back while suspended 30 feet in the air.

You’ll get to see the incredible views of the, over a hundred year old, Waita Reservoir (also referred to as Hauiki Reservoir, Marsh Reservoir or Ko ̄ loa Reservoir). The reservoir is nuzzled right by Kauai’s Tree Tunnel and Old Koloa Sugar Mill.

The reservoir is an inland body of freshwater and is one of the biggest in Hawaii. It appears as a huge Oasis with the background of the Black Mountain Range and Mt. Haupu in Koloa as seen in Jurassic park. 

The Waita Reservoir was built in the 1900s in an area that was then the Koala Swamp. It’s purpose was to supply water to the sugar cane fields that were in full swing at the beginning of the 20th century.

It was Expanded in 1931 to include 525 acres and it holds 23 billion gallons of water. The reservoir is still irrigating water to farms all over the island, today. Agriculture is very much still alive on Kauai with the help from the Waita Reservoir.

The Waita reservoir is fed from the Waiohai-Kauai Aqueduct system and is home to a host of wildlife such as Muscovy ducks (Koloa), Hawaiian Coots (Alae ke’oke’o), Hawaiian Gallinule (‘Alae ‘Ula), Stilts (Ae’o), Pheasant  (Kalij), Hawaiian boar (Pua’a) and chickens (Moa or Jungle Fowl).

The reservoir also hosts largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Peacock bass, Tilapia, and Koi. The koi found in the Waita reservoir are what remains from the Japanese camp gardens that existed in that region during the plantation years.

The reservoir now sits on private Grove Farm property and can be viewed only by reserving a space on Kauai ATV Tour or Sky Bike tours!
