Too often, we see visitors come to Kauai without booking their activities prior to arrival only to find that most trips have already been sold out. By allowing us to arrange your activities, you can start having fun as soon as you step off the plane.
No charges will be made until the day of your trip. Our activities department will take your credit card number to secure your reservation. Most tours have a mandatory 24-hour notice cancellation policy. Your credit card will be charged if you fail to cancel your reservation within this timeline. Our activity specialists will discuss this with you in more detail when a reservation is made.
Our activity specialists are in constant communication with our activity operator and we only refer our guests to companies with outstanding reputations for providing outstanding service. Many time-share companies offer discounted tours if guests are willing to spend a day in a time-share presentation. We, on the other hand, realize how precious your time on Kauai is and would rather see you riding a horse or sailing along the Na Pali coast than sitting in a room all day. Our rates are competitive with all vendors and by booking through The Parrish Collection Kauai, we make sure that you steer clear of tour operators with poor reputations.
