I've done a lot of different things in Hawaii - and this was hands down my favorite! The whole family (mom, dad, 8 & 6 year old) did the kayak/hike to the waterfall. We were on Kauai over a VERY rainy Thanksgiving week, so the added rain made the adventure a bit of a nail biter due to high water... More

Our family loved this. Our guide Chris was laid back and knowledgeable. You need to be in halfway decent shape as you kayak quite a ways. My family had not kayaked before, but we all enjoyed it. The hike was fun, and really MUDDY due to all the rain lately. All the mud was worth it to get the waterfall,... More

We had a great guide, the people in the office have great customer service and they were very patient and informative especially since this was me and my families first time kayaking. We did the Wailua river and secret falls tour. My wife and I along with my 2 kids 15 and 11 year old. The hike was not difficult... More

Our family (mom, dad & 2 boys) had a great time kayaking & hiking to Uluwehi Falls. Our guide, L'ono (I think that's how it's spelled) was a native of Kaua'i and entertained us with stories about the island's history. He was fantastic with the boys who think he is the coolest guy ever. You need to be mildly in... More

Kauai Kayak gave us the most amazing adventure on Hanalei river with our petite powerhouse guide, Lisa L. Don't let her size fool you because this woman can sling kayaks off a truck and launch without batting an eye! Right away we felt her energy and enthusiasm about our trip. Very good vibes from the start. Lisa was incredibly knowledgeable... More

Our family (parents and three children) did the Wailua River Kayak and Hike to Secret Falls. Phil was our guide, he was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the area, we learned a ton from him along the way. The kayak segment was a couple of miles, then we hiked to Secret Falls (I'm guessing over a mile). The hike had a... More

We did the Wailua River Kayak and Hike. So much fun with guide, Jamie, who was extremely knowledge about everything Kauai,.... plants, animals, insects, frogs, surfing, kayaking....... Definitely wear hiking sandals/water shoes because your feet will get wet and/or muddy. Also, lots of bug spray because those Hawaiian mosquitoes like the fresh tourists.... The Secret waterfall was gorgeous! Lunch and... More

My husband and I did the Hanalei Paddle & Snorkel trip (advertised as the "Hanalei Blue Lagoon Paddle & Snorkel Tour" on their website) in late October. It was nothing like what was described or shown in a video on their website. What they describe as "5 hours of kayaking and beach time" actually included a 1-1/2 hour van ride... More

This is a unique kayak trip because you go up a river and back then out into the Hanale Bay and out into the Ocean to a private beach. It is a longer kayak trip but well worth it. We saw sea turtles and once we beached we snorkled and had a wonderful lunch. The staff was friendly, professional local... More
