My husband and I decided to spend our last day in Kauai kayaking and walking up to the falls. We weren't very good at paddling so took up last place in our group, both going up and coming back down - but Brandon, our guide, was very encouraging and patient. He was a wealth of information about the flora, fauna,... More

Our guide was Kyle, and he did an excellent job guiding our trip. He was knowledgeable about the area, and gave us a lot of great ideas about things to do while on Kauai.

Our very personable gude Kawika shared his expertise & fun facts with everyone in our group. Although we all had different skill levels everyone had a great time. Best entertainment on Kauai at a bargain price. Do not miss this adventure!

My husband, two kids (ages 9 & 15) and I had a fantastic time on our kayaking trip! Our guide was Joe, and would definitely recommend him! He was a very friendly, social, down to earth, funny guy! It was our first time kayaking, and he made us feel very comfortable. The kayaking part was easy and tons of fun.... More

Our guide was Forest and I highly recommend requesting him. He is lively, knowledgable, and extremely good humored. The kayaking was fun and beautiful. The hike wasn't too bad albeit a little slippery from the mud and it was well worth it to the see hidden waterfall. Prepare with a bathing suit and a towel for sure! I would do... More

Our guide, Lisa, was outstanding and fun. She was very patient with us beginners while kayaking, and a good teacher. Good sense of humor. The prices were great, and water shoes were $15. Also, they provide water/snacks for a price. Life vests are optional to use. Lisa spent time teaching us before our journey on how to kayak, and what... More

We had a day we will never forget with Rene and the folks at Kayak Wailua. We took our 4 and 7 year olds, in a 4 person kayak. The kayaking and hike were amazing, and the waterfall was gorgeous. Rene had the perfect balance between giving us great tidbits of information and letting us relax and enjoy. Great great... More

It was a great tour, super reasonable price and just relaxing day. It's all about the guides with these trips. It seems like they have all great guides but if you can chose pick Kyle. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and super laid back. He just makes sure you are enjoying yourself and will go out of his way to... More
