The river trip is nice and the boat comfortable for the 20 min. trip to the Fern Grotto. The Grotto was damaged in a hurricane 30 years ago and is growing back but close - able to enter, is no longer available.

We have done this tour twice on two separate trips. We’ve taken our kids & they enjoy the singing & dancing & learning to hula. The grotto is pretty, but I find the boat ride to be the best part. It’s on the affordable end of the activities to do on the island & it only takes a short portion of the day. Bring mosquito repellent to put on before you walk from the dock to the grotto.

You must take the river cruise to get to the grotto. It is a short walk from the dock. There you will see beautiful vegitation from the viewing platform. It takes about 30 minutes for the entire visit.

Took a river cruise and visited Wailua River State Park. Walked about 200 ft of muddy Wailua Heritage Trail to see the fern grotto. The place is not much to see if you are an outdoor person. The tour guide tried his best to make it fun and talked about a lot of ancient stories. A lot of people were come and go.
