We particularly enjoy plants. It was interesting to see those indigenous to the area. There is a cave , and although you can no longer go inside, the view was beautiful. It was very tropical and included a nice waterfall.
It is a short, easy...More
Upon docking you walk ~200 yards on a paved path through the jungle to a large viewing platform. From here you learn a bit about the cave's history and get a performance of the Hawaiian Wedding Song. On the way back to the boat there...More
We visited as part of a tour and generally really enjoyed the trip. The short boat trip was pleasant as was the walk through the forest to reach our location. However, on arrival I was a little underwhelmed, possibly because we have been blessed with...More
We were expecting a lot more so were rather disappointed. We thought that we would walk into the grotto and not view it from afar. It was pretty, but not a a memorable experience. Would I recommend it? Probably not.
This trip takes a couple of hours, a short boat trip down the river for about 20. Theres live music on the boat which was a nice touch and interactive with a dash of humour. Then you disembark and its a short walk to the...More
OK. To be fair...I knew what I was going to get before going...a total tourist experience right down to "Tiny Bubbles" on the boat ride but as far as in total...it is a peaceful boat ride, the entertainers are entertaining and the Captain gives you...More
We have been going for years and when we come to Kauai we always make a trip to the grotto. In the old days when we would come to the grotto, you could go up into the grotto, but due to major landslides, it is...More

We started slightly up river at Kamokila Hawaiian village. From there, it was maybe ten minutes. If you start at the other kayak rental places at the mouth of the river, it will take you longer. There isn't much to see in that section so you're better off starting further up river; plus, it's a lot cheaper.
