Learn More about the Island of Kauai

Kauai’s origins are volcanic, the island was formed by the passage of the Pacific Plate over the Hawaii hotspot. At approximately five million years old, it is the oldest of the main islands. One of the wettest spots on earth, with over 460 inches per year, is located on the east side of Mount Waiʻaleʻale. The high amounts of rainfall every year have worked to erode deep valleys in the Kauai mountains, and beautiful canyons with breath-taking waterfalls. The Waimea Canyon, located on Kauai, is often referred to as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific”.

Get ready for some fun weather! Kauai’s weather makes it a perfect tropical destination, with humid and warm weather year round and lots of rainfall to help stay cool. The climate is perfect for many of the rare and exotic wildlife that can be found on Kauai. A trip to Kauai is a chance to experience a unique natural environment and plenty of animals species found no where else!

 

The Legend of Hawaiʻiloa

According to Hawaiian legend, Hawaiʻiloa was an expert fisherman and navigator. While out with a crew of men, they accidentally stumbled upon the island of Hawaiʻi which was named in Hawaiʻiloa’s honor. Hawaiʻiloa returned to his homeland of Ka ʻāina kai melemele a Kane, “the land of the yellow sea of Kane” in order to bring his family back with him to Hawai’i.

He then organized a colonizing expedition with his family and eight other skilled navigators. They settled on what is now the Island of Hawaiʻi, named in his honor. The legend contains reference to his children: Maui, Kauaʻi, and Oʻahu who settled on the islands that bear their names.
