This is a lovely boat ride with some historical information and some touristy entertainment. If you are adventurous a kayak tour may be more interesting
The Fern Grotto is a truly magical place and really Hawaiian. As part of a tour, we had a small cruise on the Wailua river, and then headed to the Fern Grotto. Along the way on the boat, we had a family which formed a band, and was wearing traditional Hawaiian costumes, who were playing typical music, whilst one of... 更多
I think it was about $18 or $20 / person for about 1.5 hour boat trip. It was a rainy day, so nice activity to do. They play music and sing in one direction, then give guide information in the other. You stop at the Fern Grotto area, walk on a good path into a viewing platform for the grotto.... 更多
We took this tour after visiting the Waimea Canyon. The river ride and visit to the Fern Grotto was a great way to wind down a busy day of sightseeing. They provide a very scenic ride up the river and the grotto walk is not very strenuous so it was perfect. We would recommend it to everyone.
If you have nothing else to do, then this could be something. I didnt feel it was WOW, but just another river cruise. Nice Music played by the staff and hula lessons

You get there by river boat on the Wailua River Cruise. From... 更多
This is a great value to leisurely walk through the Grotto. The plants and trees are labeled. If you have an interest in tropical plants,it is a good way to spend a couple of hours.
We took the Smith Family boat up the Wailua river to the fern grotto. Cost of tickets were $18/person, this for about a 11/2 hour trip. It was a pleasant trip up the river with commentary from the helmsman. Upon arrival at the grotto landing we were greeted by other members of the company and guided to the grotto along... 更多
The visit to the Fern Grotto was wonderful. The history behind the Grotto was vary interesting. Access to the Grotto area is accessible and an easy walk.
Took my wife and two sons ages 5 and 10 on the boat ride to fern grotto. Probably about an hour and a half excursion. Just long enough to get a sense of the Wailua river and to see the beautiful grotto. On the way up the river there is live entertainment on the boat. Ukulele music and brief hula... 更多
