What to Expect
Join us for a Kauai excursion that includes a visit to Waimea Canyon and a cruise along the Wailua River. You’ll see the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” and visit many of the places made famous in movies and TV series on your Wailua River cruise.

We’ll travel to Waimea Canyon by State Road 550, and your guide will point out a number of interesting sights along the way. You’ll be able to see the island of Niihau, just a short distance to the west of Kauai, as well as the Poipu Resorts on the south coast, Queen Victoria's profile and Nawiliwili Harbor.

We’ll continue our adventure with a cruise along the Wailua River to the famed Fern Grotto, a natural lava rock amphitheater covered by ferns. You’ll also see the cascading Opaeka`a Falls, the backdrop for many movies and TV programs, and Coco Palms, which featured in Elvis Presley’s movie, “Blue Hawaii.” The birth stones are located here as well. This is an ancient site sacred to Hawaiians, as they considered it an important place for all Kauai kings to be born.
