On the recommendation of other travellers, this little adventure is well worth the effort! Kayaking - even as a solo - was a breeze and the river and surrounds are fabulous. Through a little offshoot, you will then hike to a gorgeous waterfall! The hike will be muddy no matter what due to the sheer number of people making this... More

We had a great kayak trip and hike on a beautiful day. (My niece and her hubby treated me because they were staying with us.) Perfect pace, great service, and they allowed the use of their tennis shoes instead of ruining one of my pairs. Thank you for providing an assortment of shoes for free use! Dan was our guide...

My wife and I had a great adventure up the river and on the hike to the waterfall with Kyle as our guide. First off, the environment is amazing, and the kayak to hike excursion is a really fun mix! Also, Kyle was a great guide - very knowledge about the different birds, animals, trees and plants on our way!... More

Renee was our guide and she was fun and informative. Understand that this is not an easy tourist walk. You have to Kayak 2 miles and hike through a jungle like environment. I loved it! Renee would stop and point out different birds and tell you the history of the area. The waterfall was well worth the trip.

We're not the sportive type, yet the tour was absolutely manageable for us. The trip up the Wailua river and the hike to the waterfalls has beautiful sights, we strongly recommend this one. Highlight of our tour was the guide team: Lisa and her side kick Jamie (almost 9 years old). Both had interesting stories to tell about the nature... More

Yesterday my family and I enjoyed an excellent paddle with Kayak Wailua. We went ont he last tour of the day at 1 pm, and ended up with no one else in our group. Fewer other paddlers too. Sean our tour guide was great, explaining plants and local history. The combination of exercise and beauty was a welcome change from... More

Had a great time paddling and hiking on the Wailua River. Kawika, our guide, was fun and great about telling us of the natural history of the area. The falls were incredible and a great break for lunch.

Dan was our guide and was really patient, attentive and nice. The river was really calm which made paddling smooth and not too difficult. As I was visiting all the way from Ireland, it was cool to see some local culture, there were some local people paddling outrigger canoes on the river. Dan lead the walk through the forest at...

My wife and I visited Hawaii for two weeks starting on Maui and ended on Kauai. On our last full day here we booked a tour with Kayak Wailua and had the good fortune to have Mardy as our guide. As a native Hawaiian who truly embodies the spirit of Aloha, he provided us with the kind of unique experience... More
