An adventure, kayak, hike in mud when wet, rushing water to go through with a rope to hold. Secret Fall to swim in, then hike back in some mud and kayak back. It was a lot of fun. Not safe for children or any leg issues.

Matt was excellent in providing knowledge about the forest and trail we traveled along to get to the Secret Falls. An experience no one should miss during your visit to Kauai.

The trip would be recommended to any couple with reasonable fittest. Annie was an excellent guide. The weather was good to us having the day before was wet and therefore it was still a bit slippery. Definitely, if it is wet have shoes with good grip, able to get muddy and wet.

The guide was very cool and savvy about his job. It was well planned not too long not too short. I would recommend to be a little more generous about the food/sandwich, may be better quality bread or more than one small sandwich would have been appreciated.
