What You Can Expect
Hike up to the Waimea Canyon Lookout for breathtaking views of this natural geologic wonder. Formed by the movement of water through the island’s red lava rock over thousands of years, the jagged mouth of the canyon stretches 1 mile (1.6 km) wide and more than 3,600 feet (1,097 meters) deep. Stop at several vista points along the way to admire different views of the magnificent red canyon.
Back in the comfortable coach, take a driving tour of Kauai’s southern coast. See the town of Waimea, where British explorer Captain Cook first made contact with Hawaii in 1778, and the site of historic sugarcane plantations at Old Koloa Town. Visit the Spouting Horn blowhole to watch ocean water spray up as high as 50 feet (15 meters) through a natural opening in a lava shelf.
Finally, enjoy a leisurely cruise down the scenic Wailua River as you soak up the lush tropical scenery and admire passing views of Opaekaa and Wailua Falls. At the end of your cruise, take a guided tour of the picturesque tropical gardens and cave at the Fern Grotto before being transported back to your ship.
Worry-free Shore Excursion:
OMG the Waimea Canyon is sensational - I would recommend it for this alone! The river tour was very relaxing and a lot of fun and the grotto is beautiful.
The tours were excellent! We had very friendly and informative guides which made the experience both fun and educational. Both the canyon and the fern grotto were beautiful. The canyon, of course was spectacular. Having the Hawaiian wedding song and entertainment on the river cruise was fun. The fact that we went back to the ship to eat was fine. It gave us a change to rest for a few minutes and regroup for the second half. All in all a very good double tour.
Larry was an excellent guide!
Loved this excursion. Doing the Waimea Canyon in the morning - then taking a lunch break back at the ship - and continuing the tour on the river in the afternoon was an excellent idea. It broke up the trip. Wonderful tour guide.
Awe inspirering Grand canyon of the Pacific, well worth the bus ride. Commontary was very good as well. The river cruise and fern gardens are also a worthwhile part of the trip. too bad it rained while we were in the fern gardens, but when your in the land that has 600 inches of rain a year what else can you expect.
Great tour. Enjoyed the blow hole, Waimea Canyon very beautiful and the Fern Grotto was great. I would highly recommend this tour when visiting Kauai.
this tour was brillant and worth every dollar coach on time all staff helpful and most informative even taught us to dance Highly recommended Ann and Mike Henton
Great trip. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and professional. We think it is unfair that a few complained and they no longer make a stop for lunch but return to the ship for lunch. Since there were 2 buses on this tour, one should stop for lunch and one could return to the ship. Because Noni was born on the island, she was able to share history of the areas that some of the newer tour guides aren't aware of. We would do the tour again and ask for Noni if she was allowed to make the lunch stop.
I have nothing negative to write about this tour. The guides were personable, funny and knowledgeable. We saw more than we expected to see and learned so much about the history and local lore of the island. We had a great time! Money very well spent.
Roberts Hawaii has the most knowledge tour guides. I liked that they split this into two tours and had us eat lunch on the cruise ship. Those who bought this tour from the cruise ship paid alot more and the only difference was a box lunch.
