We were looking to book an excursion that was worth the cost and we found it. We got there 30 minutes early and easily found the place right off the main street. Parking was well organized which made for a quick exit on our return. They have a whole lot of shoes that you can borrow that were donated by... More

My husband and I booked a trip with Kayak Wailua on our recent trip to Kauai. I read many reviews on Trip Advisor and chose this company for all the great reviews it has received and was not disappointed. I booked my reservation online prior to our arrival. Our guide David was knowledgable and helpful and made a point to... More

My husband and two girls (17 & 19) went on the excursion and had an amazing time! I was a bit nervous because I had never kayaked before, but it was great fun and not scary at all. I won't go into a lot of detail about the trip because another reviewer has described it very well already. Our guide,... More

Did the helicopter trip, snorkeling, ziplines and this kayak trip. Wife and son voted this best based on our guide, the scenery, the fun of kayaking, and the hike. Kawika was our guide and did an excellent job working with people of all abilities and speeds. He was super personable and tried to mix some island knowledge in with good... More

Our tour guide Kyle did an amazing job at making this trip something never to forget. We felt like part of his family. He made it feel as tho he was excited to share his treasures with his family and we benefitted!! The young pregnant receptionist was very talented at jungling those who arrived on time and those guests who... More

We booked a 4.5 hour kayak trip with Kayak Wailua. We had an awesome time and enjoyed kayaking the Wailua river. The kayak route is rustic at times but it adds to the coolness factor. We kayaked 4 miles total and hiked 2.5 miles but it didn't seem too strenuous and since we are 51 and in mediocre shape this... More

We had a good time with kayak wailua. Our tour guide, Forest, was fun and informative. We kayaked for about 45 minutes, hiked for about an hour to Secret Falls. The tour was laid back and easy going. The water fall was beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves!

For those of you that are unsure of which company to choose for this kayak trip to secret falls, I highly recommend Kayak Wailua. The kayak up the river is very fun and relaxing, and the mile hike up to the waterfall is beautiful. Our tour guide, Kyle, was fantastic and knew the area very well. He really knew how... More

We have actually never been kayaking before this and really enjoyed it. It was a great experience. I would highly suggest great shoes with good tread. The falls are worth the kayak and hike there. David was a great guide and new the terrain very well. He waited for the group and made sure everyone was safe. This is a... More

My family of four had the pleasure of doing this kayak/hike the afternoon of August 11, having rescheduled due to the tropical storm Iselle. All of our interactions with this company were excellent, from scheduling with Pete to the one and only Forest as our guide. What a fantastic value and great way to spend 4 or 5 hours. Forest...
