Hike in the rainforest, paddle a kayak and learn how ancient Hawaiians lived in harmony with nature. This river kayak adventure takes you into the Huleia National Wildlife Refuge, home to many of Hawaii’s native wetland birds and plants, and not open to the general public. You’ll paddle a comfortable, stable, sit-on-top double kayak. Listen to the legend of the Menehune Fishpond as you float past it. This ingenious pond was built to catch fish nearly 1,000 years ago.
Take a one-mile guided walk through the rainforest and learn about the unique plant and animal life of the area, and how the ancient Hawaiians lived in harmony with nature. See film locations from Raiders of the Lost Ark. And with Indiana Jones in mind, take a leap off a rope swing for a refreshing dip in a cool mountain pool. Stop for snacks and cold drinks at a fern-shrouded waterfall and make the return trip aboard a super cool, twin-hulled, powered Hawaiian canoe.
