This adventure is easy enough for most people to paddle and hike but it's a 5 hour trip where you paddle, hike, have lunch and a swim at the falls and hike and paddle back. Beautiful paddle down the wide and majestic Wailua River. Then...More

We booked the private tour with a guide, so all the equipment were provided. Sorry I didn't remember how much it was.
How much do these tours cost?

I think it was $85 per person. It included the kayaking, the hike, and one extra day for the bike rental. It also included the lunch at the waterfall. It was worth every penny for us.
