Come and explore Kauai’s lush mountains and majestic valleys with the stunning turquoise blue ocean in the distance through an exciting horseback riding adventure!

Inter-Island Sportfishing is one of the longest running fishing charter businesses in Oahu, and perhaps, the whole of Hawaii. Established in 1950 by an ocean-loving sibling duo, Inter-Island Sportfishing has since assured its guests a great time experiencing for themselves something that is central to the culture of the Hawaiians–deep sea fishing! The Maggie Joe package tour, in particular, is an exciting big game fishing session on board the Maggie Joe, a 53’ Custom Sportfisher, which guarantees a smooth and stable ride in the waters of Oahu. Designed by the founders themselves, the Maggie Joe’s best feature is the spacious fishing deck and the engine room. As they envisioned a fishing boat that has plenty of room on the back deck for guests on-board to fully enjoy the water activities, the Maggie Joe now in fact has one of the largest fly bridges of any sport fisher boats on Oahu Island! The engine room is similarly spacious, with captains able to walk around both engines with complete access to all equipment. The Maggie Joe is USCG-certified, and can take up to 15 passengers per fishing tour, despite its actual space and capacity. Better reserve early as these 15 slots get booked pretty quickly!

This may not be the typical Hawaiian adventure most tourists go on, but this surely deserves the same attention, as the Hawaiian countryside offers a peaceful and relaxing vibe, and be momentarily far from the crowds by the oceanside. On your Kauai getaway, book Princeville Ranch’s Private Kauai Horseback Ride!

Princeville Ranch is one of the longest-running cattle ranches in Hawaii, established many years ago during the reign of Kamehameha III. Thus, when you book any of its tours, you will get to experience Princeville Ranch’s fascinating history, and as well as its vast and well-maintained lands, just as the early paniolos, or Hawaiian cowboys, have done during the ranch’s early years. For this tour in particular, Princeville Ranch’s Private Kauai Horseback Ride is a fun horseback riding package tour that lets you go on a private horseback excursion in its breathtaking 2,500-acre ranch situated on Kauai’s stunning north shore. WIth your horse, which you can be assured is gentle and well-behaved, you will meander through the verdant pastures in the ranch, where herds of cows and calves are grazing freely in the area. Princeville Ranch’s Private Kauai Horseback Ride is definitely a great way to disconnect with the bustling urban life, connect with nature, and experience the Hawaiian countryside like no other.

Princeville Ranch’s Private Kauai Horseback Ride is either a 2.5-hour or a 3.5-hour trip, both of which will take you through the vast pastures and to the top of Pu’u O’ Henui. Once there, prepare to be amazed at the spectacular panoramic views of the Hanalei Mountains, the ocean, and the entire north shore! Kauai prides itself in these natural treasures, all of their beauty you can get to take in by booking this exciting horseback riding tour. When you book the 3.5-hour trip, you and your companion (or companions, if you’re travelling with a group) will get to cap off your adventure with a refreshing swim in a 80-foot waterfall, the sight of which is another breathtaking moment–as if you haven’t had enough from your ride! 

As this tour is a private horseback riding adventure, Princeville Ranch will be able to personalize your ride based on your riding level and desire. Thus, even if you have not had any experience in horseback riding, you are still as welcome to join Princeville Ranch’s Private Kauai Horseback Ride! The guides are all well-experienced and adept in natural horsemanship skills, and will assist you in every step of the way, especially if you are a first-timer, or if you are in the company of young riders. They will also gladly share their knowledge on Hawaii’s history, flora, fauna, and more, during the tour, so you will not only leave happy, but definitely more enlightened, too!
