Journey to Waimea Canyon

Labeled "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" by Mark Twain, this fascinating Waimea Canyon tour in Kauai offers spectacular views that rival its mainland cousin yet with an island personality. For example, a stop will be made during the excursion to see the Spouting Horn. The Poipu surf channels into a natural lava tube 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 up to 3,500-foot elevation. We take you up to 3,400 feet to the canyon overlook and provide a visual history commentary 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: marks the 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.

We took this tour the first day in Kauai. We were picked up at the ship at 830. On the way we stopped at Sprouting Run, which is similar to the Blow Hole on Oahu Waimea Canyon is amazing. Great weather and photo opportunities. The driver provided historical information and pointed out sites along the way. He was also a very courteous and safe driver.

We were so pleased with this tour. A great tour director/bus driver and were able to spend ample time at a variety of places. Wish we would have booked more through Shore Excursions instead of only through the cruiseline.

It was a good tour. They met us at 8:30 and we got on a bus that took us to see the Spouting Horn. Then to the canyon which was beautiful. Got back to the ship at 1:00 and had time to get on a bus going to the shopping center

We joined this excursion in Kauai and had a wonderful experience. The us took us to the breathtaking Waimea Canyon, the blow hole and to the coffee plantation. The Waimea Canyon is very wide, long and deep with breathtaking view. It is really a splendor of natural wonder. It is why it is considered the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific". This trip is highly recommended.

That Roberts Tour Bus driver did an exceptional job on the curves up to and down from the canyon. I'm glad he was driving! Kauai Coffee was a good stop.
