Waimea Canyon



Polynesian Adventure Tours - Waimea Canyon & Wailua River Tour

Experience the natural, pristine beauty and splendor of Waimea Canyon – the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific” - and take in all the breathtakingly gorgeous scenery along Kauai’s Wailua River with Polynesian Adventure Tours!

Go sightseeing through Waimea Canyon in roomy, air-conditioned comfort aboard Polynesian Adventure Tours’ Premier Mini Coaches. The fully narrated tour includes stops at many of the “Garden Isle’s” most popular attractions – the historic ruins at Russian Fort Elizabeth (built in 1816!) Spouting Horn, a famous blowhole that gets its name from the loud groaning sound that accompanies each jet of water (they sometimes soar as high as 50 feet into the air!), and, an absolute must-see for first-time visitors to Kauai, gorgeous Opaeka’a Falls!

And if you’re coming from Lihue or Wailua, you’ll pass by Nawiliwili Harbor and the historic Koloa Sugar Mill, the very first sugar plantation in Hawaii!

That’s not all! You’ll hop on board a river boat for a scenic cruise along Kauai’s Wailua River. There are plenty of amazing photo opportunities as you follow the gently winding curves of the river, so be sure to bring plenty of film along for the ride!

You’ll stop at one of Kauai’s most famous attractions - Fern Grotto, a natural lava rock cavern that’s covered in - you guessed it – an abundance of luxuriant tropical ferns! A sort of natural amphitheater, Fern Grotto boasts some amazing acoustics. Once you arrive you’ll be serenaded by the sweet, acoustic sounds of traditional Hawaiian music played by local musicians.

Let Polynesian Adventure Tours take you on a journey of discovery you won’t soon forget!
