This excursion we had not planned before going to Kauai. We saw the brochure at the car rental place. We did 3 other excursions and this was by far the best one. It was affordable and really fun. The kayaking was great because we were a party of 3 and they had a kayak that fit us, and we enjoyed... More

My children (ages 11 and 13) and I did this for my birthday and it was absolutely wonderful! Not only was the trip itself a fantastic adventure, but our guide Marty was phenomenal. He was attentive to everyone in the group and shared so much information with passion about his island. This was such a special time for us to... More

This is a very fun way to spend time in Kauai! Ho’okele (aka Marty) was our guide and we were truly very fortunate to have the chance to share the tour with him. He was extremely and genuinely kind and good-hearted. He shared much information with us about the environment and surroundings we were in, the island geography, film history,... More

This was a fantastic tour and the perfect ending to our trip. Kyle was an awesome guide! He was knowledgeable and fun without being intrusive or pushy. This is a must do and I would recommend requesting Kyle as your guide.

Highly recommended!! Cannot say enough. The kayaking was chill so you could enjoy your surroundings & the hike as well. Waterfall & swimming hole...... Killer!!! But to be honest it was our guide Ho'okele (Marty) that was all the difference. The island is beautiful & and has so much to offer & he made it clear that it is the... More

Took the Wailua River Kayak trip. Great half day activity. Paddled then hiked to the waterfall. Our guide Lisa was great. She's a great guide and very friendly. Filled in on history of the river and the sacred land.

Awesome service and great place for a relaxing trip down river to Hanelei bay or up river through the forest and along the farm land!

Beautiful day. Started at 8am, took a quick van ride to the river, 45 min kayak, short muddy hike to the falls, enjoyed a cold swim, and then made our way back. Not too strenuous. Our guide, Kyle, did a great job.

We actually didn't take a tour with Kayak Wailua. We rented a kayak on our own. But when we got to Secret Falls, we really wished we'd been been brave enough to bring our camera with us. Fortunately for us, one of Kayak Wailua's guides, Dan Fisher, was there, and offered to take our photo and email it to us... More

One of the best outdoorsy deals on the island! We rented a kayak for 85$ for 5 hours (nobody is strict on this). We paddled a tandem kayak to the secret falls and then to another swimming hole. The falls were incredible and the poorly marked trails made this an incredible journey.
