This Kauai adventure tour will take you on a scenic trip around Waimea Canyon State Park. Waimea Canyon is over 10 miles long and over 3,000 feet deep and a mile wide, and is often referred to as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” 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. We will make several 5-10 minutes stops for photo opportunities and restroom breaks providing for chances to stretch your legs and enjoy the natural beauty of the “Garden Isle.”
We will also visit Kauai’s “biggest little town”, Hanapepe Town. This little town was very busy during WWII and the 1950’s with GI’s and sailors training. This little town was also used as a location for many shows and films.
We continue our sightseeing adventure continues along the southern coast on our way to Poipu, a beautiful resort getaway and the home of the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes in under the lava shelf and bursts upward through a small hole in the surface.
As we conclude our scenic adventure tour, we head back to the Wailua River for your relaxing Wailua River Cruise (admission included)! This is the ONLY river boat trip in Hawaii! The trip up the historic river takes about 40 minutes one way on a long flat-bottom boat.
