Kawika was an awesome guide. He stopped to tell us about local culture, different types of vegetation, and made sure we had a great time. Loved being able to split our time in the kayaks and hiking to the falls.

We just returned from our tour with Kyle and can not say enough great things about his care for our group. He was a wealth of knowledge with history of the hike we took as well as a botanist explaining all the interesting plants, trees and shrubs. We even sampled some purple flowers that tasted like mushrooms and Kyle brought... More

Had a good trip with Kayak Wailua with Dontes as our guide. It was fun and we felt we were taken care of. Dontes was knowledgable about various plant life and kept the mood upbeat with jokes and tidbits of information. The kayaking was fairly strenuous, so be prepared to paddle with arms upraised for 45 minutes, and if you... More

Today we were guided by Forest to Secret Falls. A big Mahalo to Forest for his witt, entertaining style and mostly for the knowledge he dispensed on the hike. We learned a lot about the history, flora and fauna at a pace that was relaxing and enjoyable. Forest is extremely knowledgeable on a plethora of Hawaiian statistics and brings the... More

We had a nice time kayaking and hiking to the falls. As fairly active people, it was a nice easy excursion before we headed back onto the airplane home. Lisa was a great guide, and gave us some good food recommendations as a bonus when we took our time packing up. Thank you!

What a great and memorable experience. Sean was our tour guide and very personable and enthusiastic about making our kayak excursion exciting and fun. He is very patient and helpful with his navigational skills so we were able to return unscathed from our trek through the jungle to the breathtaking waterfall. Highly recommended this outing and Sean as your tour... More

This adventure is not for the faint of heart, but with Lisa, the angel of the Hawaiian wilderness, you can't go wrong. A serene kayak maneuver leads to a long and somewhat tricky path to an epic waterfall that you'd never find on your own. Lisa's insight, experience and positive can-do attitude really helped whenever a challenge arose. We travel... More

Our family of 4 had so much fun on this tour while in Kauai. Very friendly guide and everyone else works for the company. We really enjoyed the muddy hike to the waterfall, what an experience!!! Be sure to wear a pair of shoes with good grip and be prepared to step into ankle high mud puddles Highly recommended!!!
