Kauai Kayaking & River Tours:

Paddle Your Way To Plenty Of Fun


Kayaking is a national pastime in Hawaii. Across this tropical archipelago, there are many venues for kayaking, but Kauai holds some of the very best. Whether you prefer a group tour or a solo adventure, this island's shimmering waters are ideal for boat lovers.

Yes, We're Near Fern Grotto!

Without a doubt, Fern Grotto is one of Kauai, Hawaii's most beloved attractions. Formed by volcanic rock, this magical grotto is overhung with thick, beautiful foliage from ferns and tropical plants. It's only accessible by the Wailua River, but lucky for you, we're just across the street from Smith's Fern Grotto Tours. These boat cruises along Wailua River are known for their energetic sing-alongs and enthralling storytelling. You can even get lessons from hula dancers during the trip! It's great fun for all ages.

More Kayak Tours:

If you'd prefer to rent kayaks, our hotel is a short walk from Alii Kayaks, Kayak Wailua, and Ancient River Kayak. These companies paddle up the Wailua River to Secret Falls, a mystical hidden waterfall. For guests with cars, we recommend Princeville Ranch, which takes kayakers through lush rainforest, and Kayak Hanalei, a combined boating and snorkel tour to a secret beach.
