Bonus! The tour guide that goes by the name of Forest will tap into your soul as much as the beauty of the island. Not having a clue what to expect, we were more than pleasantly surprised by the up-close island exploration kayaking up the Wailua River. We were even more enchanted by Forest- the hilarious, pigeon talking tour guide.... More

Absolutely loved this trip! One of the highlights of my vacation. It's 4.5hrs but went by so fast. The kayak view up the river was breathtaking. The hike was a little challenging because of the mud but worth every step to get to Secret Falls. Swimming under a waterfall?! Ridiculous!!! Kyle was an incredible guide. Very informative. Very attentive. You... More

This is an easy kayak up a calm River with a hike that would be classified as mild except for slippery sections due to mud and roots on trail. Pick a day when it has not been raining. The falls are beautiful.

This adventure was great fun! We were given dry bags and insulated bags for our lunch before we got our kayaks. Our guide was Lisa, she was great at telling us all about the flowers along the trail and their medicinal properties. She also had a drum which she beat through the jungle trail. The secret waterfall, which is not... More

I researched prices all over and hands down this was the cheapest one by half! We paid $100 for 2 of us, the other companies were $85 per person. We drove into this cute house with a gated front yard! We were immediately greeted with the Aloha spirit! We were supplied with dry bags (which were a life saver) and... More

A truly magical trip along the river guided by the expert Dave. The memory of paddling along the river with the hibiscus flowers littering the water will stay with me forever. Really professional, efficient and knowledgeable outfit. Our guide Dave, was full of local knowledge.

The operation is well run and the equipment is higher quality. You can pay $5 more and get a high-back seat for the Kayak - highly recommend. Our guide Forest (best we could tell was his name) seemed a little crazy, but he was just trying to help us have a good time. The kayaking is beautiful but the hike... More

We did the kayak/hike/waterfall on Friday, September 5th. Absolutely GREAT excursion. Our guide was Kyle who was Fantastic! He provided helpful suggestions on everything from kayak paddling to the best "technique" for trekking through the ankle deep mud and made sure to spend time and assist everyone. The trail is very muddy so come prepared to march through more mud... More

We are 4 co-workers from germany and found this trip online. We didnt really know what to expect when we first got there but as soon as our guide Kyle showed up we felt welcome and in good hands. The trip on the river was simply amazing and the waterfall was even better. Just stunning. The whole time Kyle took... More
