Menehune Fish Pond Tours

Menehune Fish Pond
The Menehune Fishpond is scenic—set amid lush jungle where craggy mountains are close enough to frame the edges of a killer sunset photo shot. But this giant pool of green-brown water has been attributed mythical qualities that are evident even in its name. Menehune is a mysterious race of little people—some say they’re like Hawaiian leprechauns—that have been credited with building sites throughout the Hawaiian Islands swiftly and stealthily. Legend has it they built this particular 39-acre loko wai (freshwater pond) by passing stones to each other from the village of Makaweli more than two dozen miles away, damming up the Hule’ia River with walls 900 feet long and five feet tall. In a single night. To get up close and personal with the work of the Menehune, join a kayak tour of the Hule’ia—it’s the only way to gain access into the otherwise off-limits Hule’ia National Wildlife Refuge that surrounds the pond. Fishponds like this one are found throughout the Hawaiian Islands and were used to store and easily retrieve fish for the alii or ruling class. And, the Menehune Fishpond is one of the best preserved examples of a Hawaiian freshwater fishpond still in existence today.

Practical Info

The best place to see the Fishpond quickly is from the Alekoko Scenic Overlook off Halemalu Road, about ½ mile from the Nawiliwili small boat harbor and just outside of Lihue. Kayak tours that visit the fishpond also often include a short hike to Hidden Valley Falls.

8 hr, Personal, private, guided sightseeing tour by car. South and West side

star-3
My tours are tailored to your tastes and interests. It's only your party. I go further into the Canyon than the big buses can and I know where all the bathrooms are!! If you're a professional photographer or a cell phone snapper I can stop anywhere. I've had people wanting to fly their drone, people interested in Botany, all the movies filmed here, most just want to see the beautiful sights Kauai has to offer. When we first start I will ask you what do you want to see? Sometimes there are traffic or weather situations that have made the day unique. A lot of times as people plan for their once in a lifetime trip they hear about something they must see from their cab driver or the person sitting next to them on the plane. I can take you there, it's your tour. I had to take someone to urgent care for a diagnosis and then meds but we continued the tour because it was just them.
