Kauai: Waimea Canyon with a stroller; sailing with a 3 year old?

Heading to Kauai this week with my husband and three-year-old son. Staying in Poipu at the Hyatt. It's been 15 years since I've been to Waimea Canyon. We'd like to drive up and take a short trail that we can manage with a jogging stroller. Any suggestions for our day trip?
Also, husband wants to do a snorkel catamaran trip -- any suggestions for a good company or type of excursion with a three-year-old?
Thanks in advance for your input!

From my trip report

First on our schedule was a boat ride along the Napali coast. I chose to schedule this first in case there was bad weather and we needed to reschedule. But the weather was fine. We chose Liko Kauai (www.liko-kauai.com) for two primary reasons. One, it left from the Kikiaola boat harbor, just west of Waimea and is therefore the closest to the Napali. This means less travel to get to the main area of interest. Two, the boat is of a size which would allow it to go into the sea caves -those with a mast are unable to do so. Another factor that might influence some is that small children are allowed. There were a 2 year old, 6 yr old and 8 year old on the trip.

I think Captain Andy's allows smaller children, check with them about age limits. Heard good things about Liko and was booked with them one year but had to cancel due to a head cold. They were very nice and refunded my money.
