The river and surrounding scenery was beautiful and tour guide provided a few interesting facts but mostly kept pretty quiet. I went with my two kids, ages 11 and 8. On the way to the falls, I shared a kayak with my 8 year old and it went well. My 11 year old son had a single person kayak and... More

Our tour guide TC was amazing, along with his little companion dog. He was very informative and entertaining. Even to the end, when I couldn't do my kayak anymore, he towed me in. His little dog leading and I waived in like in a parade. We had a wonderful time and would love to return. Thank you TC!!

It had rained just prior to our arrival, so the path was very, very muddy. My son and his friend had the best time ever. I was a bit nervous because it was so slippery, but overall a very positive experience. Wear lots of bug spray, though. I used some, but it wasn't enough!

Awesome venture. Enjoyed an all day filled with kayaking, hiking and experiencing an awesome water fall while picnicking.

My family & I loved everything about it. It's beautiful scenery all around. Although it is a lot of work in the arms lol and it started raining a bit on the way back, nonetheless it was amazing and such a fun experience. The guide was a nice funny guide also.

During our honeymoon on Kauai we heard of this tour by word of mouth and managed to book it for our last day on the island. The kayak/hike to the secret falls was magnificent. Our guide, TC and his companion Pepe were the best! TC was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had about the local traditions,... More

Beautiful kayak and hike in Kauai. The kayak portion was a few miles down a pretty river. The hike was also scenic, with a great waterfall at the end. Solid value!

I had been to Kauai before a few times and was excited to take my husband on his first trip to the island. I took him paddleboarding and hiking, but I had never been kayaking before, so we decided to check out this trip. The front desk help was super friendly and knowledgeable. They answered all of our questions thoroughly... More
