Overview
See multiple sides of Kauai on this guided kayak adventure to Hidden Valley Falls. Paddle along the Huleia River with views of the Haupu Mountains, and hike a forest trail to a waterfall. Cool off with a refreshing dip in a swimming hole while listening to your guide’s stories about the history and legends of the area. A motorized canoe allows you to relax on the return trip.
Highlights
  • Get a close-up view of Kauai by paddling through the heart of the island
  • Hear little-known stories about the area from your guide
  • Relax on the return journey in a motorized canoe
  • Lunch, snacks, and soft drinks included
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at the prearranged time and location—it’s advised you bring swimwear, a towel, insect repellant, sunscreen, waterproof camera, and sturdy footwear suitable for wet conditions. After being outfitted with safety equipment and selecting your deluxe two-person kayak, you push off and explore the Huleia National Wildlife Refuge. Paddle past the Menehune Fishpond, an archaeological site that shows ancient aquaculture methods, and soak up the views of the Haupu Mountain Range. Pull your kayak up to the shore then head out for an invigorating 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) hike through pristine rainforest. Splash around in the pool-drop waterfalls of Hidden Falls and listen as your guide recounts local legends. Enjoy snacks and soft drinks before heading back down to the river for a return trip in a motor-powered canoe. Bid your group farewell as your tour concludes back at original departure point.

We went in 2019 and it was absolutely fabulous. Sorry, I wrote the review two years late. ;) Our family had 3 kids (7, 5, and 2) and 5 adults. There were also other people in our group, too. Elvis was our guide, and he was fantastic. He kayaked with our middle (5 year old), and

This was very fun. We really enjoyed the guide, he was fun and informative. The scenery was amazing. Swinging out on the rope swing into the pond was especially fun. I would highly recommend this activity.

We did the kayak upriver and hike to the “falls”. Our group of 6 people had 1 guide, Elvis, who was knowledgeable and helpful. It seemed odd to easily paddle upstream but we had the tailwinds helping to push us! We were essentially the only people on the river since this

Response from Outfitters-Kauai, Guest Relations Manager at Hidden Valley Falls Kayak and Kauai Hike Adventure
Responded 12 Mar 2020
Aloha davisfamily, Thank you for sharing your vacation with us. We do offer tours on the Wailua River to Secret Falls. It's much more of a workout than the Hidden Falls Kayak tour you chose. There is no motor boat ride back against the afternoon headwind. For your convenience we offer check in at our Kayak Shack at the Nawiliwili small boat harbor. This saves you the extra driving time and does make the tour a bit shorter than the check in at our Poipu office. We have something for almost everybody. Please come back again and try our trip on the Wailua River. It's definitely a day to remember.

Dan was great at teaching 1st time kayakers. When our steering skills failed us, he was nice enough to stay behind and coach us away from the bushes along the banks. The hike was invigorating and the hiking sandals they recommended were perfect to overcome the extra muddy spots.
