Kauai Water Adventures

Although Kauai is known for its lush scenery on land, the waters of Kauai are also the venue for truly unique adventures. Kauai is the home of the only navigable rivers in Hawaii. The three rivers are the Hanalei River, Huleia River, and the tranquil Wailua River, which is the most popular for kayakers. The breathtaking cliffs of the Napali Coast are best photographed from the panoramic views of a boat tour. For the less adventurous, Kauai’s magnificent beaches offer plenty of activities from swimming, snorkeling and surfing lessons. For an off-the-beaten-path adventure, you can even go mountain tubing in the plantation irrigation ditches of Lihue. Be prepared to wear out your bathing suit in the warm waters of Kauai.

50 miles of white sand beaches surround Kauai, offering nice spots for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.
