“cool to see but don't go out of your way”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

It was cool to see the spouting water and it did sound like a whale we stayed for about 10 minutes, don't go out of your way to visit but if you are already down in poipu area you may as well see it. There are little jewelry and craft vendors set up as well.

“Beautiful spot to see Spouting Horn”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We took a drive to see Spouting Horn. It is a very nice stop to take pictures not only of Spouting Horn but the surrounding area. Its a nice place to sit and relax and just look at the ocean.

“Worth stpping”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

This was pretty cool to see. It's completely free to stop and look at so it's definitely worth it. My wife and I stopped and spent 15 minutes watching the water shoot up through the rocks. It's pretty impressive. Aside from looking at the waves crash into the rocks and shoot up like a spout there is not much to do so I wouldn't plan on this as a full-blown activity but it's just off the beaten path in Poipu so if you have a few minutes or are in the area, stop by. But don't plan for more than 15-30 minutes.

“Great shopping”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Love spouting horn, I come here whenever I visit Kauai. Jewellery makes nice gifts. And good value. Husbands and children can look at the spouting horn while mom shops.

“Natural Wonder”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Spouting Horn can be deceptive. If ocean conditions are calm, it doesn't perform, but with good waves, it can be wondrous, gushing high into the air. I've been traveling to Kauai for several years and in the beginning the shopping kiosks at Spouting Horn were wondrous too. The reason for my so-so rating is that the shopping now is pitiful with many vacant stalls and those still hanging on have nearly identical offerings.
