Oahu to Kauai - Waimea Canyon & Wailua River Tour

This tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Oahu Tours and Activities page for other available options.

From Oahu, fly over to Kauai for a day of island sightseeing. This tour takes you to Kauai’s most beautiful attractions. Visit Waimea Canyon and see why it is also known as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Its multi-colored rock walls are truly a spectacular sight, contrasting beautifully with the lush vegetation that grows in its deep crevices. If you’re lucky you may even see a mountain goat.

The drive to the canyon and back down is very scenic, featuring gorgeous views of Kauai’s south shore. Keep an eye out for the neighbor island of Ni'ihau on the horizon. The tour continues to Spouting Horn blowhole that shoots water up into the air when the ocean forces water into the lava tube.

Continuing on to Kauai’s east shore, you’ll reach Wailua River, the only navigable river in Hawaii. Enjoy a tranquil boat cruise up the river. Located along the river, amongst the emerald foliage, is the tropical leaf draped Fern Grotto. This lava rock grotto has both historical and cultural significance and forms a natural amphitheater, which has hosted many ceremonies.
