Island hop for a day and explore the Garden Island of Kauai. Enjoy Kauai's lush beauty, ancient legends, and fascinating history as you journey to the Waimea Canyon, stretching over 10 miles long, one mile wide, and over 3,500 feet deep, this magnificent marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. Throughout the day, stop off at some of Kauai's most famous locales including the Spouting Horn, and then cruise the peaceful Wailua River to the island's famed Fern Grotto.
