About Waimea Canyon Tour
This tour takes you right up to the rim of one of the most awe-inspiring sites in Hawaii—Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” Thousands of years of erosion have turned the canyon walls into a multi-hued canvas, where shadows and light produce a never-ending show. This tour also offers a spectacular view of Kauai’s western coast.
