Spouting Horn, Poipu
(3.4/5 based on 3,200+ reviews on the web)
Local Hawaii legend speaks of Spouting Horn and its ocean blowhole on Kauai's south shore. Formed by a combination of volcanic lava rocks and erosion from crashing waves, the spout represents the home of a mythical and angry lizard. Waves funneled into the small opening in the rock shelf can blast as far as 15 m (50 ft) into the air from the mouth of the blowhole, spraying the surrounding area. You can take photos of the spout from the nearby viewpoint with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Keep in mind that this force of nature can be dangerous; remain behind the guard rails and obey all posted signs. To visit Spouting Horn and get the most from your holiday in Poipu, create itinerary details personal to you using our Poipu trip itinerary planner.

  • We had the opportunity to see the Spouting Horn from above it as well as passing by on our dinner cruise. 
  • We stopped here quickly, looked around, watched the ocean and had a little stroll. There's a nice little park and a few shops selling jewellery, souvenirs etc. And of course lots of chickens 
  • This is quite a long drive to get to and only about a 10 minute stop. Beautiful view of the ocean, but we were hoping for a bigger spouting horn. Maybe we hit in during the wring time of day?
