Sunset Cart Tour at the Princeville Golf Course - Kauai, Hawaii

Published on April 16, 2019 by Rae-Marie May

Here's a unique way to watch the sunset! On the Sunset Cart Tour you will drive around the beautiful Princeville Golf Course on one of their cushy golf carts capturing incredible photos from various stops along the 18 hole Makai course. The best part is that you don't have to be a golfer! And, no reservations are needed so you can wait until you are pretty sure the weather is going to cooperate.

Two hours before the sunset, people start gathering at the Princeville Golf Shop.  First stop is the Makai Grill where guests order a few refreshing beverages, at Happy Hour pricing, to fill their on-cart ice chests. Then the carts are doled out and and guests jump into their designated cart for the one and a half hour late afternoon experience.

The line of carts, led by a Princeville Golf Course pro or employee, meander through the course, designed by Mr. Robert Trent Jones Jr., on smooth paths, stopping at five especially scenic spots. The guides (Tom, Randy or Andrew) talk story about the north shore flora and fauna, including the many different kinds of sea birds soaring over the ocean. Queen’s Bath, The Kilauea Lighthouse, Puff the Magic Dragon, Anini Reef, numerous North Shore beaches including Secrets, Lumahai, Haena, Anini, Hideaway, Waikoko and Hanalei Bay will be pointed out along the way. The Hawaiian state bird, Nene, and the seasonal Laysan albatross with their chicks, are extra, visual treats to see on the golf course. Photo opportunities abound.

As sunset nears, the last stop is at Hole 7 where many months out of the year guests will watch as the sun sinks directly into the Pacific Ocean with a view of Makana Mountain, better known as Bali Hai. If one is lucky enough to have a clear horizon, a green flash is even possible!

Here is what one couple had to say about the Sunset Cart Tour:

Others have offered their reviews of the Sunset Cart Tour on Yelp. Here are three examples:

"Pristine course! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We did the Sunset Cart Tour, and it was delightful. We learned plenty about the area and got to take in all of the breathtaking views."

"We did the sunset golf cart tour with Tom. He was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. He also had everyone's name in the group memorized before we set out! This is $60 well spent. Gorgeous views, fun drive in comfortable carts. And you can grab a drink before you get going. Perfect for all abilities. Beautiful course. Tom will teach you island lore, botanical facts, and even take photos for you. Highly recommended."

"My husband and I did a sunset golf cart tour here. The tour was awesome - golf cart was comfortable and modern, tour guide was friendly and funny (Andrew), and the views were awesome.

We did not play golf on the course, but my husband is a golfer. He thought the course was very well maintained!

I highly suggest the sunset golf cart tour. You get beautiful views from the comfort of the golf cart, and there are numerous stops along the way to really take in the view!"

My husband and I fell in love with Hawaii in the early eighties when we made our first trip from San Diego to the islands. In 2000 we chose Kauai as our home. We love the small town feel, great weather and beauty. We couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
