Aloha, Everyone

Like each of us pivoting to cope with the emerging Covid-19 pandemic, foremost in our concern is the safety of our family and friends, our ‘ohana.

Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our team and you, our guests. Therefore we have decided to suspend our daily tour operations until April 15th, 2020. During this time we will be following Hawaii state guidelines and continue to monitor and update our staff and guests as information becomes available.

In the coming days, our reservation team (or the company you booked with) will be contacting you about canceling your reservation. If you booked with us online, you can cancel your reservation at any time.

Mahalo for your support and mālama pono (take care of yourself) in the uncertain times that lie ahead of us.

Local Grinds

In order to get the full experience when coming to the islands, you also have to try the staple dishes craved by locals. These seven staple foods include white rice, lau lau, poi, lomi lomi salmon, kalua pork and chicken long rice. These can often be found together on what’s called a “mixed plate” at certain spots on the island.

Waita Reservoir

The Waita Reservoir is situated next to the Black Mountain Range and Mt. Haupu in Koloa, Kauai HI. Constructed in 1906, the Waita Reservoir was used as the primary water source for the Koloa Sugar Plantation. Expanded in 1931 to include 525 acres, it holds 23 billion gallons of water. The Waita reservoir is fed from the Waiahi-Kuia Aqueduct system and is home to a host of wildlife such as Muscovy ducks, Hawaiian Coots, Hawaiian Gallinule, Stilts, Pheasant, Hawaiian boar, and jungle fowl (chickens). The reservoir also hosts largemouth bass, small mouth bass, Peacock bass, Tilapia, and Koi. The koi found in the Waita reservoir are what remain 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 a tour with Koloa Bass Fishing, Kauai ATV, Acua Park Adventures, or Koloa Zipline.
