KAPA'A, HI--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2012) - Experience adventure overdrive in Kauai, Hawaii: heart pumping, muscles flexed, adrenaline rushing, sweat dripping, wind in your face -- kind of adventures. The Garden Isle's mostly untouched landscape and natural wonder create the perfect combination of awe-inspiring thrill seeking; making it the adventure of a lifetime. From lush rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls, jagged cliffs overlooking the expansive Pacific Ocean, to secret beaches and everything in-between there is no shortage of exhilarating activities.

In order to get guests to the excitement faster, the Courtyard Kauai Resort at Coconut Beach has created the Adventure Overdrive Jeep Package. Guests who book a minimum four-night stay using promo code XPK* will receive:

"We understand and appreciate the adventure traveller. This package puts adventure in overdrive by helping guests get the most of their experience while on Kauai," states general manager Bently Kriewald. It doesn't hurt that Kriewald, a thrill seeker himself, takes his Jeep to remote places on the island, accessible only with four-wheel drive.

Director of sales, Damon Lockrem says, "The Island has a lot of opportunities for adventure. [Kauai] offers a myriad of opportunities for all audiences, from ultimate thrill seekers to adventure sight seers."
