After landing on Kauai, meet our friendly, knowledgeable driver-guide and climb aboard our luxury, air-conditioned mini-coach for a magical sightseeing tour of the island.

On this inter-island sightseeing adventure tour on Kauai you will enjoy a day filled with natural beauty, legends of Hawaii's "Garden Isle." Your adventure will allow you to view the breathtaking vistas of Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain called "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific." The canyon is 10 miles long, 1 mile wide, and more than 3500 ft. deep. It was carved thousands of years ago by rivers and floods that flowed from Mount Waialeale's summit and the collapse of the volcano that created Kauai.

Waimea Canyon State Park encompasses 1866 acres and is one of the most popular tourist attractions on the island. There are many nature trails and beautiful wilderness to see. Enjoy the drive along Route 580, which provides gorgeous views of Wailua River. We'll make several 5-10 minute stops to capture those once in a lifetime memories, and stretch our legs and plenty of chances for a bathroom break.

We will continue along the southern coast and drive through Pipu, a beautiful resort getaway, and home of the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface, with a hissing sound and reminiscent of a blowhole.

After all of this, we head back toward the Wailua River for your Wailua River Cruise (admission included)! This is the only riverboat trip in all of Hawaii! Sail up this historic, sacred river and enjoy the natural beauty of the island. This little river cruise takes about 40 minutes (one way) on a long, flat-bottom boat.
