  • Sweeping Views and a River Cruise

    The combination of spellbinding scenery and engaging history will immediately capture your heart.

    On this adventure you will…

    • Take an included, 25-minute interisland flight from Honolulu International Airport to Lihue Airport. Transfer to an air-conditioned minicoach.
    • Travel a little more than an hour up a winding road, to the lookout at Waimea Canyon State Park. At 3,400 feet, you'll enjoy incomparable, panoramic views of the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific”—the myriad colors that represent its diverse terrain of eroded volcanic rock and rain-rich vegetation.
    • Leave the canyon, on the way to a lava rock cropping known as the Spouting Horn. The Horn is a natural salt water geyser that sprays plumes high into the air when the surf washes into a lava tube and is sucked upward through the coastal rock. The gush may reach as high as 60 feet, depending on the size of the waves.
    • Proceed to picturesque Wailua River, where you'll board a river boat for a delightful cruise to Fern Grotto. The river has deep historic significance as the landing place of the first Polynesian migrants and the former home of Hawai‘i's royalty. The grotto is a natural amphitheater, with superb acoustics for the live bands that often perform there.

    The combination of spellbinding scenery and engaging history will immediately capture your heart.
