There is a reason Kauai is considered the garden isle – lush jungle, scenic waterways and cascading waterfalls surrounding dramatic volcanic mountains create the perfect image of a tropical getaway. While there are many ways to explore this incredible gift of natural beauty, kayaking offers a special opportunity to experience the many facets of this island paradise in one fun adventure
You kayak exploration of the Wailua begins with a two-mile paddle up Kauai’s only navigable river. Your friendly, local guide will help you find the best routes as you pass through the Kamokila Village and towards the north fork of the river. You’ll learn stories of some of the earliest Hawaiians who first paddled up the river more than 1,500 years ago. You'll hop off your kayak for a moderate hike through lush rain forest along the secret falls trail head until you come to a 120-ft cascade plummeting down a mountain cliff.
Once you complete your hike, it’s time for lunch. Choose from a variety of healthy and delicious options, including vegetarian, as you picnic along the river and enjoy the good life. After you’ve finished your meal, it’s time to shake off the lethargy and paddle back to your starting point to finish your tour, share photos, and prepare for your next adventure.

We really enjoyed this tour. Kayaking up the river was easy, then a hike up to the gorgeous but cold falls. Trail was muddy so make sure you wear water hiking shoes, like Merrell H20 Hiking shoes. You could prob do it on your own, as its well marked, but you wont learn nearly as much as if you go with someone who hikes it regularly. Our tour guide, David, was quite a character. His dog Lilo went along with us, we loved her!!
