About
A Safe and Tranquil Taste of the Wailua River This three-hour guided tour is a wonderful paddling adventure for the whole family, idyllic paddling on the Wailua River Great panoramic scenery with the landscape and natural history genuinely and safely explained by your water borne guide. The Wailua River became the center of activity for early Hawaiians and is known as one of Hawaii’s two most sacred places. At night, it is said that one can still hear ancient drums thunder in concert with the nearby surf. This tour is perfect for those who want a “taste” of this wonderful river.

Afternoon kayak trip on the Wailua River
Feb 2020
We booked a kayak tour for Tuesday, Feb 4. When we got there we were the only couple booked for that time, so we basically had a private tour with Jay. We had a great time on the river, it was a beautiful day with a bit of rain on and off. Jay is a great guide! He gave us a lot of information about Kauai and his life on the island. His pride of living in Kauai was very evident....we enjoyed listening to his stories as we paddled and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. When we got back to the dock, Jay brought us some wonderful pineapple to snack on. We will recommend Kayak Kauai and Jay to everyone we know going to the island. We also look forward to coming back again! Lee and Susan

Aloha Lee and/or Susan, Glad you enjoyed your guideJay on your Wailua River Paddle. I personally love paddling in the rain with the moods changing with the sun, clouds, and rainbows. We all love living on Kaua'i and folks like yourselves make it possible to not only share our love but to remain on this beautiful island called Kaua'i; thanks! Thanks for taking the time....and until our wakes cross. Stay active. A hui hou,

Very Enjoyable Paddle, Guide Jay was Great!
Feb 2020
We really enjoyed our paddle up the river. It's a beautiful area, very lush, and some rare bird sightings along the way. Our guide Jay was fantastic - very knowledgeable and very easy-going allowing us to set the pace and decide how we wanted to spend the time. Would highly recommend!
