Waimea Canyon Experience

 This Kauai adventure tour will take you on a scenic trip around Waimea Canyon State Park. Waimea Canyon is over 10 miles long and over 3,000 feet deep and a mile wide, and is often referred to as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” The canyon was formed by erosion and the collapse of the volcano that formed the island of Kauai. This popular tourist attraction provides a wilderness area with many hiking trails and beautiful vistas and breathtaking views.

 The scenic drive along route 580 provides outstanding views of the Wailua River. We will make several 5-10 minutes stops for photo opportunities and restroom breaks providing for chances to stretch your legs and enjoy the natural beauty of the “Garden Isle.”
