    On this Kauai tour you will enjoy a day filled with the lush beauty, legends and saga of Hawaii's "Garden Isle."

    Journey to the majestic Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain called, "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific". Over 10 miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep this marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. Enjoy the drive along Route 580, which provides gorgeous views of the Wailua River. We will also visit Hanapepe Town. This little town was very busy during WWII and the 1950's with GI's and sailors training. This little town was also used as a location for many shows and films.

    As we cruise along the southern coast, we'll drive through Poipu, a resort getaway for those in the know and home the Spouting Horn. This natural wonder occurs when water rushes under a lava shelf and bursts through a small opening at the surface, making an eerie hissing noise.

    Afterwards, head back toward the Wailua River for your Wailua River Cruise before we conclude our tour and return to the departure points for dropoff.
