Our tour was really fun! Amazing sites to see on the tour while not only Kayaking on the river but hiking to the beautiful falls. I would recommend this to anyone. The paths on the hike were muddy and slick but we had a blast.

Aloha JoshkR1, So glad to hear you had a blast on your tour! Thank you for recommending our tour on Trip Advisor. Yes, the trails are definitely muddy and slick during our winter months when we receive lots of rain on Kauai. The sights and waterfall is worth the hard work of kayaking and hiking to see.
