Scenic Cruising Jurassic Coast

Kauai, the Garden Isle, has more Jurassic Park filming locations than any other Hawaiian island. As you take in the extraordinary views while scenic cruising its east side, you will understand why. Pristine beaches, the dramatic curl and crash of waves, lush emerald cliffs, and gentle waterfalls create an otherworldly setting. Watch for dolphins, whales and rare monk seals. Ho’opi’i Falls, near Kapaa, appears in one of Jurassic Park’s pivotal scenes—the Amber Mine mosquito discovery. Jurassic Park isn’t the only film that spotlights Kauai. Kalalea Mountain, nicknamed King Kong Peak, appears in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Tropic Thunder. The Sleeping Giant is another distinctive slope on the east side. Relax and enjoy as you experience Kauai’s spectacular scenery.
