Renewing our Wedding vows at the Wailua River and Fern Grotto

We took another Roberts Hawaii tour while on Kauai, this time we enjoyed a drive through Lihue Town and headed north along the coastline to the Wailua River.  At a marina, we boarded a flat-bottom motorized barge for a journey up the river. After a 30 minute cruise, we arrived at dock in the lush rain forest, and a short walk brought us to the Fern Grotto. This natural lava rock cave and grotto is lush with ferns and tropical foliage. We renewed our wedding vows there, on my 65th birthday, and then back on the barge for a cruise back. Then we boarded the bus and continued a bit further into the valley of the Sleeping Giant. From here, a short walk to Opaeka’a Falls, one of the island's most popular waterfalls.  Just another day in Paradise.
Our cruise barge
Heading up river
The Fern Grotto and waterfall
We renewed our vows with other couples
A dance to celebrate our wedding vows
The music played for us
Heading back down the Wailua River
Opeaka'a Falls in the drizzle
