During this combination tour, cruise down the Wailua River on a scenic boat ride amidst a lush rainforest jungle and take a relaxing stroll to the Fern Grotto. You will journey to one of the world’s most inspiring geological wonders, the Waimea Canyon and be amazed at the expansive peaks, valleys, and deep gorges.
Kauai has many natural wonders and unique adventures to offer - experience must-see highlights on this immersive tour experience. From a scenic lookout point, peer across the valley at one of Kauai's largest waterfalls, Opaeka'a Falls which is named for the opae (shrimp) that once inhabited the turbulent water below.
Board a spacious, open-air boat and cruise down Kauai's Wailua River encircled by miles of lush trees and tropical plants. Cool breezes lull you as the captain shares stories of ancient Hawaii when the river was flanked by multiple Hawaiian heiau (temples). Stroll on a paved path to the fern grotto, where ferns drip from a natural lava rock cave. A popular backdrop for weddings, talent entertainers sing the Hawaiian Wedding Song in your honor.
A full-service, dine-in lunch is included at Puakea Grill. Select from a pre-fixe menu that incorporates fresh, local produce.
Next, journey through the heart of Kauai’s countryside where you’ll ascend a vast mountain via a meandering road engulfed by trees and endless fields to reveal what Mark Twain aptly described as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” It’s hard to believe that the immense cliffs and deep gorges of the Waimea Canyon could exist on an island – you’ll be mesmerized by its scenic beauty long after your vacation.
We then visit sprawling Kauai Coffee Plantation and learn the coffee production process, from the initial blossoming and harvesting to the final roasting. Sample the exclusive line of estate‐grown Hawaiian coffees while relaxing in the warm sun.
Transportation included from Poipu, Lihue, and Kapaa hotels and resorts.
