Looking for filler for 9.4.14

Husband and I are on NCLs Pride and arriving at 8am on Thursday, 9/4 in Kauai. We are torn...we have already booked a helicopter tour for the 5th at 830am (finished at 10:30am), but that is all we have planned so far. Our hope was, that with wise counsel here in this forum, advice as to how to fill the first day and after the helicopter tour on Day 2 would be given.

Our thoughts and interests would be:

Smith luau versus an evening sailing dinner cruise on Day one.

Renting a car and self touring the W Canyon on Day one before the evening plans (Day one)

What do we do after the helicopter tour? We must be back on the ship by noon, so Day 2 is pretty much shot.

Help.....what do we do on our Day one??

Rent a car and drive to the North Shore. Waimea Canyon might be too cloudy by the time you get up there.

You could drive to The North Shore and still be back for a luau.

Ditto. Just get a rental car and head north. It's the perfect time of the year to check out the north shore. Not to knock the canyon but the north shore of Kauai is more representative of Hawaii and would offer more to do.

I've never been but did read a couple bad reviews about Smith's Luau. Could be a few disgruntled people though. ;)

I thought this one looked cooler

I'm a South Shore girl, but I would rent a car and drive North. You won't be sorry. :)
