ATV Tours on Kauai


You’ve seen those pictures of sunbathing beauties on Hawaii’s white sandy beaches, and you’ve thought, “But doesn’t that get boring after awhile?” You are clearly one of the people who needs to get up and do something now and then. So, for you, we offer ATV tours on Kauai.

Much of the island of Kauai is uninhabited and wild, making it perfect for exploring from the back of an All-Terrain Vehicle. Even if you’re not an experienced ATV rider, you can sign up with a guided tour and get all the instruction and safety equipment you’ll need to have a fun adventure trip through the Garden Isle. Or, if you prefer not to drive at all, there are also dune buggies which seat six people, so as long as someone else in your group is interested in being the pilot you can sit back and relax. Well, maybe not relax…

Each ATV tour on Kauai includes different sights, so make sure you look at what each company is offering to make sure you’re going to get what you want out of it. Some of the destinations included on the various tours include former sugar cane plantations, rain forests with secluded waterfalls, working cattle ranches and points along beautiful valleys. Generally speaking, the tours last several hours and include a meal or snacks in the price of the ticket.

You’re likely to get muddy – this is the wettest Hawaiian island, after all – so dress appropriately. And because your hands will be preoccupied with driving the vehicle, you’re probably not going to be able to be snapping photos along the way. Check with the tour companies before you leave – many will take digital photos during your tour which you can buy at the end of the trip.

A couple of the ATV tour companies on Kauai are Kauai ATV and Kipu Ranch Adventures, and this growing trend should see even more companies offering ATV tours in the near future.

Please note: ATV tours are not advised for pregnant women or people who have back problems. You must be age 16 or over to operate an ATV, and you must be over the age of 5 to be a passenger in one of the multi-person dune buggies.

Location: The ATV tour operators are based in different spots on Kauai; for more information, ask at the front desk of your hotel or at the Kauai tourism office or check out the tour operators’ websites directly.
