Kahana River + Huilua Fishpond

 It doesn't get much better than kayaking down a gentle river on a beautiful day. 
Kahana River is the rain run off from the mountains, so there is not really any fun things in it (turtles) because it is mostly fresh water, but it did have amazing views. 

 The river runs into Huilua Fishpond.
There are a few ancient fishponds left in Hawaii.
This one is declared a U.S National Landmark.
It was severely damaged after a tsunami, but you can still pretty much see all of the 500-foot rock wall.
The 7 acre enclosure was made to raise fish. The rock-wall would let the fish enter but not exit.

End to a great day!
