We went on the kayak experience up the Wailua River. Brandon was our guide. It was about 5 hours. We kayaked, we hiked up a very cool mountain to a hidden 100 foot waterfall. We got to swim under the waterfall. Very cool. All along the tour Brandon was giving us little bits of Hawaii facts in a most humorous... More

This is a great small family business that doesn't gouge you on price. Relaxing kayak trip up the Wailua River and trek through the woods to a beautiful secret waterfall. I really appreciate that they had all gluten-free snacks to provide to the group once we got there. Our tour guide Troy was awesome. He has great insight on the... More

I highly recommend taking the trip with our tour guide, Lisa, and her daughter Kaya. They are so much fun and extremely nice and informative about this trip. I took it with my family and they all loved it. If I had time, I would do it again on this trip. Thank you so much Lisa and Kaya for making... More

This adventure included kayaking the Wailua River, a muddy hike, a stream crossing (knee high water), and a swim at the Secret Falls. Our guide, Cole, was quirky and....well, AWESOME! He was patient and set a pace that worked for everyone in our group. He kept up a steady narrative throughout the trip, pointing out various items of interest along... More

This was our second year using this great group!!! We used a guide our first year (highly recommend) and then we used the Rent-n-Go option this year. What a beautiful river and great fun for the whole family. This is really a great day on the island for not a lot of money!!!! My wife was at first very concerned... More

We brought a group of six adults and our 16 month old grand-child and were escorted along with three additional couples by our guide Cole. Cole was attentive to the needs of all members of the group. Our squirmy toddler grandson rode in his mother's lap in the kayak and on her back in a carrier during the hike. Cole's... More

This is the first outdoor adventure in a week long family vacation in Kauai. My husband and I, together with our two teenage daughters were excited to kayak for the first time. Our guide, Daniel, is very considerate, helpful and patient with us. Because the hike trail was muddy, Daniel suggested we do more of the kayak than the hike.... More

This was a wonderful Hawaii experience! We went on the first tour, prepared for kayaking, hiking and some mud. On arrival, we were told, there would be mud up to our knees. The owners checked our foot wear and offered other free options if what we had was inadequate. We were given dry bags, were driven to the river, given... More

We came home covered in mud, but were smiling about the fun experience. The owners were gracious about our being tardy (some other company gave us some bogus directions to get there). The best part of the trip was our guide Cole. He was fun and had a wealth of historical facts, not just about the trail, but about Hawaiian... More

We had a terrible experience and the owners basically told us not to go due to mud in trail. It wasnt the message but how she said it. Wouldnt suggest it to anyone.
