We rented a two-person kayak for $90.00, and you can get a 5-hour tour for 50.00 per person, so renting yourself doesn't save much. We didn't want to be with a group. The guy renting wasn't there when we showed up at our assigned time, and he was of little or no help with the most nonchalant attitude we've ever... More

There were twelve of us in this group and we all went on tandem kayaks. Our guide was "Kyle" and he was the greatest! The river view was awesome and the waterfall was spectacular. They provided a dry bag and a cooler so we had our lunch at the waterfall. We will definitely do this again and recommend this as... More

This review is somewhat overdue as we did the trip in Novmeber 2013 and I am still catching up on a lot of reviews from a 2 month trip. We went on the kayak/hiking trip to the Secret Falls with this company. As per other reviews, this company has the first slot of the day - so it is possible... More

This wasn't our most favorite excursion that we went on, and here's a few reasons why: -kayaking is much harder than you think. Not that it's difficult, but going a few miles when it's warm out is difficult and your arms get tired (and we are in shape) -there are people everywhere! It's definitely not a peaceful and quiet kayak/hike... More

I have to say - i was not at all excited about this adventure... even before we got there. The kayaking both ways was hard (2.5 miles each way...and over old fallen trees and debris at one point) - and i'm in decent shape. And the hike to the falls was at least ankle deep in mud.... then our return... More

The family had a great time at this adventure. After a two-mile kayak up the river we had a two-mile hike to the secret falls which was a beautiful spot. After a swim under the falls we returned to where we began. While you do not have to be super-fit to enjoy this adventure, you do have to have reasonable... More

Since 2002, I tried Wailua River Kayak total 5 times. Two times were guided tours. I recommend a guided tour and hiking to secret falls. It's about 5 hours trip (half day activity) worth money and refreshing day hike if you are acompanied by a good kayak tour operator.

We went here on a referral from our B&B in Maui. The setup and expectations were great. Kyle was our guide and was incredibly friendly, funny, helpful and entertaining. He had been all over the world and gave us a lot of great recommendation and places/restaurants to go on the island. At the beginning, they got us together to let... More

My wife and I had kayaked before so navigating the Wailua river wasn't an issue. We decided to signup for the tour however because of the guided hike to Sacred Falls. We arrived in the morning to be greeted by the owners. They provided shoes for those that didn't want to get theirs dirty as we would be walking through... More

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
