What You Can Expect
Get outfitted with safety equipment and a kayak, then push off to explore the Hule'ia National Wildlife Refuge, dedicated to the preservation of Hawaiian water birds. Float past the the Alekoko (Menehune) Fishpond, a living archaeological site that shows the aquaculture methods of the ancient peoples. Get views of the Haupu Mountain Range, a 2000-foot (600-meter) shield volcano looming over the river.
Stash your kayaks and set out on foot for a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) nature walk through the pristine rainforest. At your destination, called Hidden Falls, explore the series of pool-drop waterfalls and the swimming hole. Hear the legends of supernatural beings who inhabit this area and the movies that have been filmed in this scenic location. Enjoy some snacks and cold drinks while enjoying the scenery before heading back down to the river for a fun trip back in a double-hulled powered canoe.
Please note: Participants should be comfortable with a 60- to 90-minute kayaking journey and a 1.5-mile (2.4-km) hike.

We had a great time hiking and kayaking. Very relaxing and at our own pace. Two thumbs up!!
This is an extremely casual trip. i expected the waterfall at the end of the hike to really be something special but it was not really a waterfall at all it was a stream rolling over a few higher rocks, certainly not what one thinks of when you think of a waterfall or see them in the pictures of others on Kauai. Lunch was a C-. The guide was a pretty cool, fun kid and very knowledgeable. But overall the trip was just "OK" and definitely over-priced
Definitely not a 'water fall'. More like a stream.
