Designed to evoke the grandeur of the postcard-perfect splendor of Kauai, this all-day adventure showcases the best that the "Garden Island" has to offer. From the pier, your small group will see splendid sights such as Opaeka'a Falls and Poliahu Heiau. Next, you'll embark on a leisurely boat ride up the Wailua River to Fern Grotto, which offers a natural amphitheater of lava rock and tropical vegetation. Back on the touring van, you'll travel along the North Shore to the Kilauea Lighthouse and National Wildlife Refuge & Bird Sanctuary. Stop by Anini Beach as well as Hanalei Pier to see Hanalei Bay, voted America's best beach in 2009 by Dr. Beach. Visit Hanalei town for an island-style picnic lunch. Return to the ship at the end of the tour with a wealth of island knowledge and the satisfaction of seeing some of Kauai's finest scenery.

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 5 years. Kilauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge is closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays. Guests will be taken to the viewing area where they can take pictures and view the lighthouse but the grounds will be inaccessible.
