This introduction to the 'Garden Isle,' features two of the area's most dramatic natural attractions - the 2,857 foot deep Waimea Canyon and a riverboat ride up the Wailua River to the famed Fern Grotto. Your adventure starts with a drive to a lookout point at 3,400 feet above sea level. From here, you'll have an unsurpassed view of the rainbow colored canyon with its reds and browns from exposed volcanic rock and blues and greens from lush tropical vegetation.
Next, you'll board a riverboat for a cruise up the Wailua River to the Fern Grotto. This beautiful lava cavern forms a natural amphitheater with excellent acoustics. At the grotto, keeping with island custom, a chorus will serenade you with the traditional Hawaiian Wedding Song.
