Tour Details

Called "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" by Mark Twain, this fascinating Waimea Canyon tour offers spectacular views that rival its mainland cousin yet with an island personality all its own. For example, a stop will be made during the excursion to see the Spouting Horn. The Poipu surf channels into natural lava tube here and releases a huge spout of water during large swells. Listen for the hiss and roar; local legend tells of a great lizard that long ago got stuck in the tube.

The actual canyon is bursting with ever-changing color, yellow ginger, and eucalyptus trees. Kauai's own mokihana berries grow right up to the 3,500 foot elevation. We take you up to 3,400 feet to the canyon overlook and provide a visual history along the way. A short walk from the transportation takes you to the overlook.

Waimea, located on the western end of Kauai, offers a rich history and plenty of adventure. The town's claim to fame is as the landing spot where Captain Cook first set foot on Hawaiian soil in 1778.

On the return drive you will pass through Old Koloa Town. Established in 1834 and situated in the heart of Hawaii's first sugar cane plantation, quaint old buildings have been carefully renovated and restored and are now home to unique shops and restaurants. As you drive by, your guide will share fascinating stories about life in the plantation era.

Reviewer: Susan Hackett  
WE ENJOYED THIS EXCURSION VERY MUCH. OUR GUIDE WAS BORN ON THE ISLAND AND KNEW ALL THE HISTORY OF EVERY SMALL VILLAGE, TOWN, OR CITY THAT WE WENT THROUGH. SHE HAD A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR AND MADE SOME STOPS FOR US TO TAKE PICTURES. THE CANYON IS A MARVEL OF NATURE AND SHOULD NOT BE MISSED.
