Troy "led" our family of 4 (two adults and two kids ages 10 and 13) on the afternoon guided tour. Unfortunately, we were the only inexperienced kayakers in the group, so after a very brief explanation of the do's and don'ts, everyone was off while we lagged behind figuring things out on our own. For the most part, we remained... More

We selected this company based on a couple of items - and were not at all disappointed in our discovery - first rate organization! One was that they were a family owned and run business, everyone works hard to pitch in. Second was because of their ability to get out on the river first and thus guide us kayakers up... More

This company is the first one on the river and therefore the first one at the falls. The guide is great and everybody can go their own speed. Well worth it!!

My family of four took this tour and had the pleasure of meeting Cole. He was very knowledgable about the history and island of Kauai. This was a 2 mile kayak and 1 mile hike to the Secret Falls. There are plenty of other tours like this one, but I chose this one because for one, prices were very reasonable... More

We opted for the 7:00AM morning tour and it was well worth it. Temperatures were still low and we were the first group to make it to the falls. We had the place mostly to ourselves for about 20 minutes before it became a frenzy. The owners are genuinely awesome people who love what they do and there are all... More

Our family enjoyed the friendliness and quality of the secret falls morning tour. Cole was a fun and informative guide. All the employees were welcoming and caring. Great family-run business.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the river. We have two young children, so our guide suggested a four person kayak. The paddle up and back was really beautiful, and definitely the most challenging part of the trip. The hike to the falls was easy, although I think we were lucky to have the pathways so dry. Our girls easily... More

Nice narrations of the area and its residents. Beautiful trails to hike with ease. Hidden falls pond pretty chilly.

We picked up our double Kayak at Wailua Kayak around 7am and were the first to leave and get to the falls it was a great adventure, the kayak was decent price a little higher than others around but they are close to the water which does save time. Leaving early we were able to miss a lot of the... More

Judah was a great guide on our family adventure up the Wailua River to Secret Falls. His concern for safety and fun were greatly appreciated by our family of 7. The trail to Secret Falls can be a little challenging but Judah taught us how to "embrace the mud".and he was very patient. By leaving early, we beat the crowds... More
