My wife, son and his girlfriend took this trip on 23Sep14. Our ages? 67,65, 29, 29. We took the 7:00 a.m. trip. This was a spectacular trip so make sure you take your camera. At check-in, because it had rained hard the night before, we were worried about our shoes and asked each other whether it would be better to... More

My fiance and I went on the secret falls tour in September 2014 and it was Amazing! We did the 7am tour which was a great idea since we were the very first ones to the falls (we saw about 100 people heading with other tour groups heading to the falls on our way back). Judah was our tour guide... More

We just had such an amazing experience with them yesterday. And it's such a reasonable price. The owners and our tour guide, Judah was just amazing. We did the 6:45am one and we're so glad we did the morning one. We were the first one to get on the river and to secret waterfall. We went early on a low... More

Matt was our great guide for this. We were lucky in that the trail was not that muddy. It's not really hiking as much as it is walking around and through tree roots and holes and a fun stream crossing. The weather was great for our trip and I think my wife and I have finally learned to paddle together!... More

Because of the excellent reviews on another site, we decided on the spur of the moment to try out this trip with Wailua Kayak Adventure. (Main office is on Ulu Street in Kapaa, in case you get confused with another company with a similar name.) It was one of the best experiences of our trip! This was our second time... More

Our guide was Justin who provided fun info on the area and even local plant life. Excellent instructions and cautions for the few things to watch out for. Lunch was provided along with the best pineapple I have ever had. Couldn't stop eating it, and I hate pineapple. Standing under the waterfall was awesome! You will get wet, shoes will... More

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
