Beautiful 4 mile round trip kayak trip and a really lovely and easy 3 mile round trip hike through gorgeous Hawaiian jungle to a stunning waterfall! What more could one ask for? Except maybe an awesome guide through it all. Nathan was full of great information at each point along the way and he even introduced us to a bird friend along the hike that meets him every time! He even hand feeds him worms! You will be glad you booked this tour!

Aloha Kathy, We are so happy to hear that you had a delightful kayak adventure with your guide, Nathan. Guests kayak 4 miles roundtrip on the Wailua River and hike 2 miles round trip through lush jungle to experience the majestic Uluwehi Falls. Nathan loves to share his knowledge of the island to his guests. The local bird that the guides trained, is an added bonus to this trip. Thanks for coming out with us!

The Kayak Adventure was a great experience and a lot of fun. Our guide, Gabriel Blencher was fantastic. He was very attentive, knowledgeable and made the day even more enjoyable. It’s definitely not a leisurely day. Between the kayaking and hiking, you are spent by the end of the trip. The waterfall is beautiful and definitely worth it though. I highly recommend doing the Kayak adventure.

This was an wonderful day outside kayaking on the Wailua River. Our guide was Erickson who grew up on Kauai and shared real history of this valley. He was kind and truly cared for the group. He found and abandoned chick and kayaked it all the way home on his lap. It was hard work kayaking a 2 person boat - take your time, communicate and enjoy.
