The Jack Harter no door helicopter tour

The Jack Harter no door helicopter tour in a Hughes 500 is an awesome experience. Our pilot was Spencer. He did a great job of showing us the sights. The mai tais in the bar at Duke’s Canoe Club were a waste of money. No booze in them! We complained and were told that they …

We were in Poipu May 25-31, 2015

We were in Poipu May 25-31, 2015. Our “best bets”: Kiahuna Plantation in Poipu is a wonderful place to stay, with a fabulous beach (but the signature restaurant is closed till July). Keoki’s Palace, right across the street, has really good food, ambiance and service; worth the rather high price. A relative bargain for foodies …

Kalapaki Beach Hut

Kalalea Juice Hale

Went to Kalalea Juice Hale (just below the mountain with that name) at 4390 Kuhio Hwy, Kapaa (actually just off the road in the boonies). 346-0074.

What Readers Have to Say

“Wow, a very big applause to you for writing such an awesome book. Myself, my hubby and our 2 teenagers got a copy of your book before heading to Kauai. We had never been to Hawaii before. I read it front to back before leaving. It was so full of helpful information that it is a must read for anyone going there. Your tips were right on every time. We ate at places that we probably would not have tried if not for your book and loved them. Directions getting around the island were also very, very helpful. Very easy to read directions and the maps are the best I have used. Whenever I hear of someone else heading for the Islands I immediately tell them to get a hold of one of your books and how right on their are… It was our Kauai Bible while we were there. We never went anywhere without it.”
