Natural beauty on Kauai is everywhere you look, from the vibrant tropical plants to the emerald mountains to the vast ocean. The ‘aina (land) and kai (sea) are not only sources of unimaginable beauty, but also important parts of the ancient and contemporary Hawaiian daily life. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Garden Isle while simultaneously understanding this special place at a deeper cultural level through the Na Waiwai Land and Sea Tour, one of the best Kauai sea tours, hosted by a partnership between the National Tropical Botanical Garden and Holo Holo Charters.
Descend into a lush, tropical valley that is home to one of the largest collections of native Hawaiian plants currently in existence. Situated in a pristine mountain and valley setting, these florae have been carefully cultivated to reflect their natural habitat. Enjoy a short stroll to the bottom of a gorgeous waterfall, making you truly feel like you are experiencing paradise to its fullest.
Just when you don’t think it could get any better, you will be treated to a private hula show performed by Halau Ka Lei Mokihana o Leina’ala. Experience the ancient Hawaiian lifestyle by visiting a home created with local materials according to Hawaiian customs and learning more about the kalo (taro) crop, which is still a vital staple in contemporary Hawaiian cuisine. Experience the early discovery of Hawaii by Polynesians through the storytelling of their voyaged with a star compass and canoe plants over 1,000 years ago.
Of course, you aren’t truly experiencing Kauai’s beauty without some time spent on the ocean. The Na Waiwai Land and Sea Tour ends with a sunset dinner cruise along the island’s south shore. Local dishes, cocktails, and Hawaiian music are all enjoyed with the breeze in your hair and the sun dipping down below the horizon, closing the day with an unforgettable display of colors.
