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!

This was our first kayaking trip and it was magnificent. Tyler was our guide and he was fantastic. Easily one of the best parts of our kauai trip. Highly recommended!!!
It is an easy and great hike. So worth it to do it. The waterfall is beautiful and you can swim in it.
This was a wonderful and beautiful excu. Our tour guide Tyler was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the trees and plants and very engaging. Great young man!!
The weather was perfect and Tyler our guide was amazing. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an adventure.
This trip didn’t disappoint at all. Bring your sense of adventure and your Texas or water socks. There was mud on our day but all in all it added to the fun part and the memory. Scenery is beautiful and you’re well taken care of.
Truly amazing tour! Great guide with lots of local knowledge. The hike was moderately difficult, but so worth it to see the beautiful falls at the end. The lunch was great, too! Kayaking was lots of fun. I recommend this tour to everyone who visits Kauai.
Tyler was out guide for the trip. Very good explanation for proper kayaking techniques. Very knowledgeable of the area and safety was his primary concern. The kayaking was great. Once to the waterfall, it was perfect. Nice lunch provided. A definite must in Kaua’i.
We had a great time. The river was calm, peaceful, easy to kayak. The hike was interesting, Phil was knowledgeable about the island, the trees, the water. Had a great time at the waterfall, it was COLD when you first got in, but got used to it quickly. Great pictures were taken. THEN DISASTER. The rocks were slippery, I fell, cracked my head on the rocks, caught my wrist between two rocks. All of the guides were at my side immediately. No blood, just lots of pain. One of the guests was a paramedic, he helped them splint and wrap my wrist properly. Ice and pain meds were given, i made my way up the hill, had a bit of lunch, and hiked back to the kayaks. Needless to say, I could not use the oars to get back. Phil had me move to his kayak. Left on plane the next day, got x-rays, yes wrist is broken, Surgery is Thursday to put a plate in my wrist to hold bone in position. Great excursion, horrible ending, but it was MY FAULT, not theirs. Enjoy yourself, but be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best thing I did on my vacation. Great tour guide Kelly who added lots of interesting facts along the kayak and hike portion.
Great introduction to the beauty of Kauai. Our guide was wonderful and we had a great group. This is a good outing for people without a lot of hiking or kayaking experience. Highly recommend
Saw way more than I thought I would see. Our guide was great and was very informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants to see the true beauty of Hawaii. The hike can be a challenge just bring proper footwear.
This is an awesome adventure but need to be somewhat of good physical shape.
This tour was fun and informative. Our tour guide was great. The tour was muddy and got slippery at times. However, we got a walking stick was really helped.
My husband and I visited Kauai for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! One of the highlights was kayaking the Wailua River. Our guide, Phil was professional, laid back and a lot of fun. The Wailua river is absolutely beautiful. We also enjoyed the short hike to the waterfall where we had a light lunch. We would love to do this again and will recommend it to our friends and family!
There were 3 of us ranging from ages 18 to 58. We all had a fantastic time! The hike was challenging but not too challenging. I highly recommend water shoes because the trail was very muddy and it included walking through water. Lunch at the waterfall was a nice surprise. Brian is an absolutely wonderful guide. He made sure we were safe while we were having fun.
Our guide, Josh, was awesome. He gave an entertaining tutorial about how and how not to paddle and steer a kayak. We had an awesome lunch by the beautiful waterfall--can't beat that scenery!
Had a great time. Kayaking was fairly moderate except when the wind kicked up but not to strenuous. Hike through the rainforest was very beautiful. The falls were amazing! Be forewarned though, if they tell the the trail is muddy, that means you will be up to you lower calf in mud, not just a little slippery here and there. Be sure to have footwear that washes easily or that you don't mind getting rid of afterwards.
Great little adventure, tour guide was great, route was challenging enough and even in the muddy terrain we had a great time. Lunch was sufficient and fresh. Would definitely do this again.
Our family had a fabulous time! Our 11 and 13 year old boys thought it was great and even the 16 year old daughter had a good time. Our guide Trevor was informative and fun. Bring shoes that you can get wet and hike in. The hike is muddy. Keen closed toe shoes worked well.
