Limahuli Garden has reopened following more than a year of flood recovery efforts and is accepting reservations for self-guided and guided tours. The garden closed in April 2018 after historic flooding closed access to the garden and damaged infrastructure, trails, and plant collections. The garden’s hours of operation remain Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 to 4:00.
In order to manage traffic and reduce the impact vehicles have on the garden and surrounding community, reservations are now required for self-guided tours at Limahuli Garden. Hawaii residents with a valid driver’s license and North Shore Shuttle riders are exempt. Hawaii ID or North Shore Shuttle ticket must be presented at check-in for visitors without advanced self-guided tour reservations. For more information about the North Shore Shuttle, please visit their website at https://kauainsshuttle.com/.
Adopting more sustainable tourism practices will allow the Garden to benefit the community, the areas natural & cultural resources and our visitors who come to engage in this very special place. Actively engaging in the solutions to take care of our places is a reciprocal responsibility all of us share equally. These measures are steps we will take to preserve our rural community, enhance our visitor experience and ensure our places are resilient and prosperous for generations to come. We are hopeful as we step forward towards a future of sustainable tourism, that we all work together to support and honor our communities, places and each other. Make a tour reservation now.
