Beautiful mountains of inland Kauai.


Tread Lightly Kauai provides  guides,  sightseeing and  hiking tours for all interests. Let me guide you as you drive. 


Let me be your tour navigator. I can direct you to easy car rentals. I have a good idea of what to do on Kauai ( I had one period where I did not leave Kauai for 14 years.) I will ride along in your vehicle ( I do Not drive) and I will guide you to Kauai's best. As soon as you "book" me by paying a small deposit I will send you a personally created guidebook to help you cut through the hassles of where to go and what to do.

About Jay

Jay Dorrance is a full-time Kauai resident for the past 20 years and has been guiding clients since 2011.

His parents moved to Oahu in the early 70's presenting a great opportunity to explore Hawaii, (with his dad's suggestion). 

His father, the late William H. Dorrance is the author of several books relating to Hawaiian history and was a long time columnist for an Oahu newspaper. He made sure to pass his love of Hawaii, it’s people and it’s history on from father to son.
