On Tuesday August 23rd, I took my brother and parents on the Kayak Wailua excursion. My parents being new and afraid of kayaking in the river were extremely slow and cautious. Our tour guide, Forest stayed with them for the majority of the trip helping them with their confidence. Also, because of a little rain, a lot of the other... More

David Phillips is truly a fantastic guide. He entertained us with his fun personality and informed us all along the way with a vast amount of knowledge about the history of Kauai and the natural surroundings. David made it great. It was an adventure with a good kayak ride, river crossing, hike and enjoying the beauty of the waterfall at... More

My Wife and I were on our Honeymoon and wanted to have an adventure so we booked kayaking based on tripadvisor reviews. Jamie was our guide she was GREAT. She was funny and definitely gave us plenty of historical information about the sites we visited. I would say that the kayak and hike is not for the faint of heart,... More

We took this tour with our two boys 7 and 9. It was a great day of paddling, hiking and swimming at the falls. Our guide was extremely interactive and did a great job of including our two boys throughout the day. Much thanks to Kawika as he made it one of the highlights for our boys and taught them... More

We went with a large party of 21 people and got two guides, Lisa and Kyle. They were amazing and very friendly. I actually struggled a big with the kayaking and Kyle took my kayak aside and tied it to his, and he was able to then assist with the kayaking. My wife and I weren't into hiking to the... More

Our family of four (kids age 12 and 13) took the trip to the falls with Dan. We all had a great time. Hiking was extremely muddy and slippery. Therefore, slow going even though the hike to the falls is only 1.1 miles. Dan was awesome - took care of the whole group and made sure no one was left... More

My mom, my 7 yr old son and I did this tour today and we loved it. Brandon was our tour guide and he was great. He took the time to explain things we were seeing in detail. He made sure we were following the group since we had to move a little slower because of my little one. He... More

My family (husband and I in our 40s and 2 teenagers) took this tour almost 2 weeks ago. Lisa was our guide, and all I can say is that she is Wonder Woman. In addition to my group of 4, she lead a group of 4 men who needed to be at a wedding later in the day, and a... More

My husband and I went with my sister and her partner, each couple in double kayak. We are not experienced kayakers but they were, and David was happy to give them some guidance so they could go ahead of the group. He was a great guide - calm and encouraging, extremely knowledgeable about the plants and the local area, having... More
