What You Can Expect

Wailua River Kayak and Hike Adventure

This tour is recommended for all travelers who love nature

Explore the east side of Kauai as you kayak down the Wailua River, Kauai’s only navigable river for boats larger than kayaks. This 20-mile-long (32-km) river once wove through seven different ancient temples and is considered one of Hawaii’s two most sacred places. As you paddle down the river with your partner in a double kayak, take in views of the expansive, untamed landscape.

After kayaking for 45 minutes, hop out of your kayak and follow your guide on a 1-mile (1.6-km) hike through the dense forest to a remote, 200-foot (60-meter) waterfall surrounded by flowers, brooks and ferns. Stand in awe as you watch the water cascade down into a pool, and cool off by taking a dip in the water!

You are then picked up at Hanalei Bay and driven back to your start location.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This was my favorite excursion of all. The gentle 2 mile kayak followed by a little over a mile hike led to the beautiful falls. At one point all the other groups left and our small group had the falls all to ourselves for about 15 minutes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Our tour was awesome. Our guide was very good with telling us about the area's flora and wildlife. I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
