Great trip guide was very cool and did not rush us @ all. There is quite a bit of rowing involved up and down the river- while there are typically two to a canoe, if both of you are not rowing, makes it difficult to traverse the distance.

Brian was our guide and he was awesome!!!! Wonderful day kayaking, hiking and spending time at a beautiful waterfall!! Brian was very informative and since it was only 4 of us on tour it was like a private tour.

One of the best tours of the Island. Our tour guide Brian was the nicest guy and he really made the whole trip special. We loved the kayaking! My daughter 12, had a blast on this adventure! The hike was quite muddy but super fun! The waterfall was absolutely breathtaking!
Be ready to paddle and hike! Round trip 5 miles of kayaking and round trip 3 miles of easy hiking!
A definite must! We will do it again if back! Thanks Brian again for taking our photo in the rain!

Matt was a great guide! His energy was fun and his guidance made for a safe and magical experience. His tidbits of information before, during and after the excursion made the experience even more valuable. The river, the landscape the water fall...all of it was stunning!I don't be afraid to get a little muddy! It's part of the experience. The kayaking tour is a Must Do adventure while visiting Kauai! It is a unique and engaging way to experience the garden island!

This is a fun and beautiful tour. Kayaking the Wailua river is scenic and easy. The hike to the secret falls is not difficult and the reward at the end is well worth the effort. This was one of our favorite activities on Kuaui.

The kayak and hiking tour were really a lot of fun. The only issue we had is that we were not informed of the level of difficulty it would be. After it was over the guide said we went about 8 miles. I would think about 7 miles of that was 2 per boat kayaking and 1 mile of hiking. This kayaking wasn't so hard for us less than in shape people, other than navigating around trees and branches in and out of the water and rocks near the top, and my arm muscles didn't hurt as much as I anticipated the next day or two. The hiking was the really difficult part. There was maybe 1/2 mile each way of hiking through steams, rocks, small hills, lots of roots and branches crossing the trail, and most of all lots and lots of mud. It's a rain forest, and the wettest island in Hawaii, so expect it to be muddy most of the time. I managed not to fall, but my wife fell three times and banged up her legs a little. It helped that our guide brought walking sticks obtained from forest tree branches to help us keep our balance. The waterfall was amazing. It's coming off about a 60 foot cliff that wraps most of the way around a pool at the bottom. Going into the pool and behind the waterfall literally takes your breath away. I may not have done this if I'd known the level of strenuous activity involved, but I'm not at all sorry I did it. It was a big accomplishment and we had a great time and met some new friends, including some that came from within 30 miles of our home.
