Before leaving Hanalei, we stopped briefly at the Huleia National Wildlife Refuge where we saw taro paddies and quite an impressive array of rare birds including Hawaiian Stilt, Pacific Golden Plover, Hawaiian Moor Hen, Hawaiian Koot, Hawaiian Duck, and Hawaiian Goose.

We went on a half-day trip with a group that left from the Nawiliwili Harbor. You first paddle the Huleia River for an hour or so, then walk through a short part of the refuge. They take you in vans to a spot where you hike down to a private waterfall, which was gorgeous and refreshing. Then they feed you... More
