Kauai: Full-Day Tour with Fern Grotto River Cruise

1. Kauai: Full-Day Tour with Fern Grotto River Cruise

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. Your day starts as your 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. 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 – the perfect location to be serenaded and entertained by Hawaiian musicians and hula dancers.

Full day tour! The river experience was nice and saw some lovely flowers at the Grotto. Our Tour Guide Steve, (who missed his calling as a stand up comic) filled the day with interesting facts on the areas we visited, the culture of Kauai and choose a great place for lunch. He had our entire tour team laughing all day long.

Steve was a great tour guide. We enjoyed everything from start to finish. Great day!

We were picked up in a luxury van at our resort and it just kept getting better!
