Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge on Kaua’i changed the days it is open to the public in 2014 – so make sure before you plan your itinerary when visiting the north shore of Kaua’i that you make note of these changes so you will not be disappointed. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reduced the days Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge is open to the public from seven days a week to five days a week – specifically Tuesday – Saturday from 1000am – 400pm except most major holidays.
Due to declining budgets, the department felt this move necessary to be able to continue necessary work on the sanctuary – this change was to be evaluated at the end of a one year trial period – so will post later if this changes again.
The Kilauea refuge was established to preserve and enhance seabird nesting colonies and is home to some of the largest populations of nesting seabirds found in the Hawaiian Islands. Visitors often have the opportunity to view spinner dolphins and monk seals, native Hawaiian coastal plants and the Hawaiian state bird the endangered Nene Goose. Probably most well known is the historic Daniel K. Inouye Kilauea Point Lighthouse which sits on the northernmost point of Kaua’i allowing visitors to view a piece of history as well as the many bird colonies on the cliffs.
