I had a lot of fun on this trip. The mud was a little bit of a surprise, but definitely worth it. I chose Wailua Kayak because they had the most convenient departure times and provided coolers and dry bags. Thanks Lisa for the great tour and especially for the advise and help with the rest of my stay!

Lisa was a fantastic tour guide and my whole family had a wonderful and memorable family outing. A word of warning though, there is a TON of mud on the hike inland from the kayak drop off point. Don't let it deter you though! The waterfall is beautiful and a great place to eat your picnic lunch, but be sure to wear close-toed tied on shoes. If you don't, just go barefoot. My six and eight year old kids made the trek and both had a blast and were best friends with Lisa, the tour guide, by the end. We will tour with them again if we ever come back!

If you are looking for an exciting adventure involving kayaking on the Wailua River and hiking through the forest to the Wailua Waterfall - this is it! Be ready to "embrace mud" as our fantastic guide Lisa thought us, and you will be awarded by an awesome view of the Wailua Waterfall and swim under the 107ft of its falling water.

A friend recommended this experience as a 'must do' in kauai. We googled the providers and chose Wailea Kayak as best price and convenient departure times for our group trying to avoid sparrow fart starts. The kayaking was pleasant and easy paced on the way there as we found our paddling skills. The trek involved mud up to the ankles squelching in borrowed shoes, thank goodness, gave way to knee deep muddy water which left us with fashionable brown bermuda sox for the photos. Impressive waterfall at the end rewarded the trekkers. Our guide Kawaki was a knowledgeable skilled Hawaiian guy catering for all ages and capabilities. Our only suggestion is for the website and better placed information on what to bring and what to wear. We overlooked the need to confirm by telephoning prior and just accepted the short email as confirmation, we turned up 15 mins late and badly shod! Fortunately they had a supply if old trainers for the mud slide slip.

An interesting trip. Our guide Lisa Lucas was fun and knowledgeable and was always looking to keep us safe and happy and comfortable. Even the rain didn't slow us down.
