Full description
Experience the beaches of East Shore, the striking geology of Fern Grotto and the lush Waimea canyon. This tour shows you the spectacular sights of Kauai. Follow your guide for a journey on land, by water, and in the air to see the island's beauty from every angle.

Your day starts as a friendly tour guide picks you up on Kauai's North or East Shore. The comfortable, air-conditioned touring van offers large viewing windows on all sides for you to admire the beaches, mountains, and waterfalls. So make sure to have your camera ready!

Arrive at the Wailua River and step aboard a spacious open-air riverboat for a leisurely journey to the Fern Grotto landing. A short walk through the rainforest brings you to one of Kauai's geological wonders, where ferns grow upside down in a natural amphitheater of lava rock. This is the perfect location to be serenaded and entertained by Hawaiian musicians and hula dancers. Also take an amazing optional tour of Kauai by air. See the spectacular views from the sky of Waimea Canyon, Napali Coast, and amazing waterfalls all over the island.
