Overview
See the best of Kauai’s east and south shores without renting a car on this full-day tour that takes you from the colorful ravines of the Waimea Canyon to the emerald caves of the Fern Grotto. A driver and guide handles the island roads while you enjoy the colorful landscapes, stopping at attractions like the Spouting Horn blowhole, old Koloa Town, and Captain Cook’s Landing. Trade the tour van for a boat on an included cruise down the Wailua River, an area rich in Hawaiian legend.

There are many places to pull over and view various scenic vistas along the route. It is truly amazing and worth travelling to. But be patient if the weather changes. Sometimes the clouds may come in, but give it time and you may even be treated to a rainbow!

Take your time and drive the entire length and past the canyon. Many places to pull off to take in the beauty and take your pictures. Once you pass the canyon, keep on driving as you can go to the end of the road and view the ocean from high above. Take a lunch and enjoy!
