Kaua'i is an outdoor lover's paradise, with its breathtaking natural landscapes providing the perfect playground for all sorts of adventures. While popular activities like hiking the Na Pali Coast, snorkeling at Poipu Beach, and kayaking the Wailua River are well-known, there are plenty of unique new sports and activities cropping up that are worth exploring on your next visit to the Garden Isle.

Take to the Skies with Paragliding
Get a bird's eye view of Kaua'i's striking emerald valleys, waterfalls, and coastline by strapping into a paraglider. Several outfitters on the island offer tandem instructional flights, allowing you to soar like a hawk without having to be an experienced pilot. The powerless free flights let you experience the thrilling sensation of flight in the picturesque Hawaiian skies.

Explore the Ocean Floor with Submarine Scooters
Dive beneath the surface and glide along the ocean floor with a self-propelled underwater scooter. These easy-to-maneuver devices let you cover lots of territory while taking in Kaua'i's vibrant marine ecosystems up close. Many tours provide guidance in exploring lava tubes, drop-offs, and coral gardens teeming with tropical fish and sea turtles.

Conquer the Cooling Lava Fields on a Hovercraft
One of the most novel new activities is gliding across the ancient lava fields near Kilauea Lighthouse in a sleek hovercraft. These low-riding crafts use integrated fans to ride a cushion of air just above the lava rock. It's an exhilarating way to traverse the frozen lava beds while learning about the fiery origins of Kaua'i's geological wonders.

Hang Ten by Harvesting Waves with Hydrofoil Surfing
Experienced surfers are always seeking the latest ocean-riding thrill. Hydrofoil surfing has become a new craze, allowing riders to utilize a specialized board and foil to glide above the waves at high speeds. Outfitters in Hanalei offer hydrofoil surfing lessons for daring wave riders to give this advanced sport a try.

Whether you crave aerial, aquatic or terrestrial adventures, Kaua'i continues to push the boundaries with its offerings of unique, adrenaline-pumping sports and activities. Leave the typical beach vacation behind and discover exciting new ways to experience the island's unparalleled natural playground.
