Create an itinerary including Spouting Horn
Local Hawaii legend speaks of Spouting Horn and its ocean blowhole on Kauai's south shore. Formed by a combination of volcanic lava rocks and erosion from crashing waves, the spout represents the home of a mythical and angry lizard. Waves funneled into the small opening in the rock shelf can blast as far as 15 m (50 ft) into the air from the mouth of the blowhole, spraying the surrounding area. You can take photos of the spout from the nearby viewpoint with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. Keep in mind that this force of nature can be dangerous; remain behind the guard rails and obey all posted signs.

  • Spouting Horn is easy to get to, has plenty of parking, and is a great spot. It's really fun to just watch it and the ocean for a bit. This site won't take a lot of time, but it's worth the stop.

  • Nice place with rest rooms and picnic benches. Lots of roosters around for kids to get excited about. The spouting horn makes good horn noise, the spouting depends on waves sometimes it is pretty big sometimes it is small. So stick around for few minutes to experience large and small fountains.
  • Spouting Horn is a Beautiful Location. Multiple Blow Holes.
