WAIMEA VALLEY TOURS
History of Waimea Valley
Take a casual walk on a paved path through our World Class Waimea Botanical Gardens and Historical Sites 3/4 of a mile one way or 1 1/2 miles round trip from our Ticket Booth (where you pay Admission into the Valley) to our Waterfall area.
There have been 78 Ancient Hawaiian Archaeological Sites identified including religious sites and shrines, house sites, agricultural terraces, and fishponds. The 150-acre Botanical Collection contains more than 5,000 kinds of tropical and subtropical plants including native and endangered Hawaiian plants. Several native and endangered birds including the alae ula are found in Waimea Valley. All five species of o'opu, a native freshwater fish can be found in Kamananui Stream. Because Waimea Valley and the Waimea Botanical Gardens are home to so many endangered plants and animals, we do not allow any domestic animals to be brought in, (this includes birds, cats , and dogs, with the exception of service animals).
Cultural activities visitors to the Valley are invited to participate in several free activities (with paid admission) including Hula Implement demonstrations, Hawaiian Games, and Crafts, Music & Story Telling with Kūpuna.
The Waihī Waterfall is an attraction of great interest and enjoyment – it is the Waimea Valley’s 45-foot waterfall. Waihï is approximately 3/4 of a mile from the Ticket booth.
