Cruising Along The Wailua River at Kauai Hawaii

If you are heading towards the beautiful island of Kauai in Hawaii USA, a must-thing to do and see is a relaxing river cruise along the Wailua River with boat destination towards the Fern Grotto, which is only accessible via the river.

There are few ways to go to the Fern Grotto, the most popular and highly recommended ones are the boat river cruise or the kayaking. A definitely worthwhile way to see the Wailua River with a visit to the Fern Grotto is by a boat tour, a family-owned and family-operated business by the Smiths Family, where they have several open air wooden boats cruising along the river at different times of the day. For around $20 per adult, you get a ticket aboard one of the Smiths river boat, enjoy some local Hawaiian songs and dances as the boat cruises along the river, get to see beautiful hidden views with narration that can only be seen along the river, and a worthwhile guided tour to the Fern Grotto. While cruising along the river, you also get to see those people who are kayaking in the river as they paddle their way towards their own destinations.

At the Fern Grotto Park, there is a boat docking area there where visitors can disembark and walk few minutes inorder to see the Fern Grotto itself. The developed walkway path towards the Fern Grotto is a treat in itself because you have the chance to see some exotic tropical plants that are native or some common only in Hawaii, that you may have never seen in the mainland USA. Although the super long ferns are now replaced with new growths due to weather or storm, you will noticed that there are a lot of ferns hanging around the cave with a waterfall above it.
