Wailua Kayak Adventures does an excellent job throughout the entire excursion. I especially appreciated that they keep each group small for increased mobility and speed; and the early departure to beat the crowds at the falls.

Eden was our guide. He is very patient and we took the afternoon tour and when we got back to the dock, it was almost 6:30. He told us a lot about the plants along the way and some history as well. The river is really calm and very good for beginning kayakers. We had to cross streams which is... More

We had a great morning kayaking up the Wailua River, taking our mile long hike to the falls, our swim, our hike back and our kayak back to the launch point. Our guide Judah was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about what we were seeing on the river, and the history of the area. And you really can't beat the Hawaiian... More

We chose this company over the others because it was about half the price of the other kayak rental companies. We were very pleased with the service provided by this company. Because it's down the road from the base yard, you do have to put the kayak on your car and haul it down there. For a $40 savings,this didn't... More

Awesome! Well worth the money. We went with a 5 year old in tow and it was great all around. It does get very muddy and slippery in some places but the walking sticks they provide REALLY helped - our guide, Judah was fantastic. We never felt rushed during the kayaking, hike or during our time at the waterfall. Do... More

Had a wonderful time on this kayak hike to the falls. Our guide (Captain Kyle) was not only highly informative, but enteraining also. I would recommend this trip to anyone. A bit of advise to the management.... If you know your kayak seats and back supports are uncomfortable, upgrade them on all your kyaks. Don't nickel and dime your guests... More

I chose Wailua Kayak Adventures after reading a lot of reviews of many different tour companies on Trip Advisor. I selected this company because they had a trip leaving at 7 AM (worth it to beat the crowds) and they provided everything you might need (dry pack, walking stick, nice kayak). The office folks and the guide (Cole) were friendly... More

We had a fabulous day due to the organization and efficiency of Wailua Kayak Adventures. We took the 7am trip. I highly recommend this. Beat the crowds, beat the heat. Our guide was Cole, he did a great job. The kayaking was effortless on the way out, slight wind at our back. The furnished dry bag was great. From our... More
