Waimea Canyon & Wailua River Tour on Kauai

Waimea Canyon & Wailua River Tour on Kauai

Explore Waimea Canyon - often referred to as "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" - over 10 miles long, over 3,000 feet deep and a mile wide. The canyon was formed by erosion and the collapse of the volcano that formed the island of Kauai. This popular tourist attraction provides a wilderness area with many hiking trails and beautiful vistas and breathtaking views.

The scenic drive along route 580 provides outstanding views of the Wailua River. The tour makes several 5-10 minute stops for photos and restroom breaks providing chances to stretch your legs and enjoy the natural beauty of the “Garden Isle.”

You will also visit Kauai’s “biggest little town,” Hanapepe Town - very busy during WWII and the 1950s with soldiers and sailors training. It's also been a filming location for many TV shows and movies.

Your sightseeing adventure continues along the southern coast on the way to Poipu, a beautiful resort getaway and the home of the Spouting Horn - a natural wonder created when water rushes in under the lava shelf and bursts upward through a small hole in the surface.

This scenic adventure then heads back to the Wailua River for a relaxing 40 minute Wailua River Cruise on a long flat-bottom boat (admission included) - the ONLY river boat trip in Hawaii!
