Wailua River Boat Cruise & Fern Grotto Sightseeing Tour

The Best of Kauai Tour continues with a visit to the Wailua River Marina where you will board a spacious, open-air river boat for a two mile leisurely journey to the Fern Grotto. At the Fern Grotto landing, you’ll enjoy a short nature walk through the rainforest to the lush Fern Grotto. The Fern Grotto is a geological wonder of Kauai where ferns grow upside down from the roof of the grotto. A natural amphitheater of lava rock and tropical vegetation are the perfect backdrop as you are serenaded and entertained by Hawaiian musicians and hula dancers. The Wailua River is Hawaii’s only navigable river and is also a popular place for water skiing, kayaking, canoe and stand up paddling.
