Ka Waimakai Walk

This pleasant walk takes you through the Orchid

House and down a flight of steps to our Wild Forest

path. As you descend into the cool, woodsy Kuliha’ili

Canyon, enjoy the towering trees, fragrant flowers and

interesting foliage along a meandering stream. At the

bottom of the Canyon savor time to stroll at Kaluakai

Beach before boarding the Garden’s bus for a ride to

the Formal Gardens. Here you will delight in a variety

of life-size bronze sculptures, our Hedge Maze and the

3/4 acre Ka’ula Lagoon featuring fountains and a

plunging waterfall. This tour is limited to 9 guests per guide.

2½ hours

Tuesday, Wednesday

& Thursday



Whatever the season, expect to be entranced as you tour our gardens, by foot or on board one of our covered, motorized carriages. Na ‘?ina Kai offers only guided tours which are conducted by knowledgeable volunteer docents. Depending upon the tour you choose, you will travel to one or more of the diverse destinations. Soon you will understand why we say that each garden, indeed every spot along the way, has its own personality and mood, and seems worlds away from wherever your journey to Na ‘?ina Kai began.

Tours are offered each Tuesday through Friday throughout the year. Tours range in length from 1½ hours to 5 hours.

All tours are guided and suitable for children 13 and older. Children younger than 13 will enjoy one of our “Under the Rainbow” Children’s Garden Family Tours. Family tours must be pre-arranged.

Reservations are highly recommended; however, we are happy to accommodate drop-in guests on a space-available basis.

 Na ‘?ina Kai’s Orchid House Visitor Center and Gift Shop is open each Monday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.; and Fridays 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Na ‘?ina Kai is closed to the public on weekends and holidays.

Please contact us by phone or email for detailed information and to make reservations for the walking or riding tour that suits you best.
