“Why skip Kauai Kayak’s tour of Wailua River and Waterfall?”
Reviewed 27 August 2007

Why skip Kauai Kayak’s tour of Wailua River and Waterfall?

· River was crowded with speed boats; it smelled like sewage
· Our Guide “only doing this for 3 weeks” lacked the insights, knowledge, and experience to make up for this dull adventure
· Hike consisted of a nose-to-tail walk on a trampled path to Secret Falls. The path featured rotting mangos and swarming fruit flies.
· “Secret Falls” was neither - more like an old shopping-mall fountain with crowds looking for a deal.
· An oily slick of sun tan lotion and bug spray covered the pool at the falls

· Guide was “Eco-Brown” – after lunch he threw the lunch food scraps to the hoards of chickens - the only birds you’ll see
· Lunch on the chicken-poo covered rocks next to the ”falls”
· Our final reward, upon returning to the launch site, was to carry and load the kayaks onto the trailer.

Spend your $85 doing something else. Kauai is beautiful. We enjoyed other more scenic and pristine sites by ourselves (Secret Beach and Lava Pools, Waimea Canyon).
