I booked this excursion for my wife and I as part of our honeymoon trip to Kauai. What a waste of time! The kayaking was enjoyable but like others have mentioned, there isn’t anything about the river that’s worth viewing. Our guide Davie is definitely...More

Our tour guide was over an hour late and the only reason he showed up for the tour was due to our persistent calling to find him. When he arrived, no apologies. He also had strong "odors" and seemed half with it. He tried to...More

After not being in a kayak for months, northern indiana weather, it was great to get my paddle on. Beautiful land, muddy hike, fun waterfalls.

Somewhat boaring kayak scenery, a total mud-slog up to an average waterfall with lots of tourists taking selfies...sorry I can’t be as enthusiastic as everyone else but giving out five stars for this trip is a bit over the top

Firstly, this is not recommended for first-time kayakers. The river was calm, yet deep. The hike to the waterfall was brutally muddy, so prepare proper footwear in advance (or borrow an old pair from the shop...but be warned: the shoes are disgusting) The waterfall made...More

Loved it! I recommend when you see the pile of walking sticks at the beginning of the hike, pick up one or two! Expect a muddy, slippery and challenging walk. The waterfall is beautiful. Our guide was wonderful.

I'm thinking you could probably rent kayaks and do the river on your own. There is also the Wailua river where you can go kayaking, and if you can be there when the sea is calmer than on our last trip, there is always Napali... More
