One-Day Kauai "Garden Isle Island" Tour
Believe it or not, it's possible to behold Kauai's most famous sights in just one day. This tour captures all the highlights including a visit to awesome Waimea Canyon, Hawaii's "Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Eucalyptus trees, yellow ginger, and mokihana berries rise up the 3,500 feet well-pleated cliffs.
As if in a dream, a boat ride up the Kauai - Blow HoleWailua River will take you to the enchanting Fern Grotto, said to be the most romantic place in Hawaii. As you cruise down the river, a fern-lined lava cave comes into view. You can almost imagine a couple exchanging vows there, as Hawaiian paddlers sing their sweet song...and they do.
Lush valleys, dense rainforests and hidden streams fill your day, while a 40-foot waterfall makes its cameo with Makaleha Mountains and a restored Hawaiian village as the backdrop. Watch as sea water shoots through the air with each incoming wave at the popular "Spouting Horn" blowhole. Spy on whales and dolphins along the coastline. Spectacular lookouts, sacred sites and historical landmarks are also part of the tour, including a Russian fort with an interesting tale, so be sure to bring your camera.
Let the beauty and splendor of Kauai envelop you, take in the fascinating narration along way, and it's sure to be an incredible day on Hawaii's "Island of Discovery."
