If you’ve never been to Kauai, it’s time you check it off your bucket list

If you’ve never been to Kauai, it’s time you check it off your bucket list. If you have, you won’t need our convincing to go back. The oldest of the Hawaiian Islands is home to perfect beaches, towering mountains, beautiful rivers, lush rainforest, and some of the most dramatic, rugged coastline you’ll ever see. A day on the beach or in the surf is almost requisite. You’ll also want to check out the stunning Napali Coast—with cliffs jutting out of the ocean thousands of feet, dotted with lush vegetation and waterfalls—it’s a sight you won’t soon forget. Venturing inland you’ll find hidden gems via guided trips in the mountains and jungles that cover much of the island. You can also spend some quality time on the links, with signature courses framed by jungle mountains, surf, and sand. We’ll set up at the St. Regis Princeville Resort, with lavish amenities and astonishing panoramas that might make it hard to leave your room at all.

Custom-Planned Local Activities To Complement Your Conference

You deserve a break! That’s why we carefully select and plan premium after-class Group Activities for conference attendees and their guests. After all, all work and no play is never a good plan! So join the fun, experience something unique, make new connections, or reunite with old friends. This is your vacation—we want you to enjoy every moment!

Please note: Prices are subject to change. Prices include service fees and taxes, where noted. Activity fees are nonrefundable.

Register Early! Tickets and transportation for our optional Group Activities may be limited and are sold on a first come, first served basis.

Hanalei Bay Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Kauai Paddleboarding

Monday, November 13, 2017

1:30 p.m.–4:30 p.m. | $99.00

If you want to learn to stand up paddle board, this is the perfect opportunity. Stand up paddle boarding is one of the fastest-growing water sports today. Not only does it provide the best workout on the water, it’s just plain fun. Plus, while you’re paddle boarding, you’ll be able to take in the beauty of Hanalei Bay.

Price includes stand up paddle boarding lesson and all equipment. Transportation from resort to surf shop not included.

Helicopter Tour

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Helicopter Tour

2:00 p.m.–2:50 p.m. or 3:00 p.m.–3:50 p.m. | $269.00

Perhaps the best way to see the breadth and majesty of Kauai is by air. On this 50-minute helicopter tour, you’ll experience the magnitude of the Na Pali Coast, hover above the deep chasms of Waimea Canyon, and see the majestic Manawaiopuna Falls that were featured in the movie Jurassic Park. With much of Kauai’s lush wilderness inaccessible by car, an aerial tour is the perfect way to fully appreciate all of Kauai’s hidden natural wonders.

Price includes 50-minute helicopter tour. Transportation from resort to helicopter not included. Weight limit of 290 lbs.

Smith Family Garden Luau

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

4:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. | $129.00

Kauai Luau

Join us in paradise near the sacred Wailua River, a place once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. Receive your shell lei and take either a narrated tram tour or a leisurely stroll around the lush 30-acre gardens. During the imu ceremony, we’ll learn about the Hawaiian cooking method called kālua, where a kālua pig is wrapped in ti leaves and cooked in an earthen imu oven. We’ll enjoy cocktails from the open bar while listening to the Smith family sing Hawaiian songs. Then the feast will begin with traditional flavors and island favorites, such as kālua pork, beef teriyaki, chicken adobo, and sweet-and-sour mahi-mahi. After dinner, the Rhythm of Aloha Show will feature colorful, authentic performances in the torch-lit Pele Amphitheater.

Price includes transportation, dinner, show, cocktails, tax, and gratuity.
