Izzy was a great guide. The kayak trip up the Wailua ultimately leading to a hike to The Secret Falls was outstanding!

Our river and hike guides were exactly what we were looking for: gracious, knowledgeable, attentive, funny, and chill. They have deep love and respect for the land and traditions and it shows. I cannot recommend them enough for a way to spend a day doing an easy kayak trip and a hike through beautiful country to spectacular waterfalls.

Our guide, Izzy was great. She told us about native Hawaiian culture, plants and birds. The kayaking was not difficult and a nice experience. The waterfall was beautiful and we were able to spend enough time there. Overall, a wonderful experience! Izzy rocks!

We had a great time doing the kayak & hiking tour to secret falls. Our tour guides, Kamu (?) and Kai (?) are super fun and courteous. Live music accompanied us the whole time!

Do not hesitate to book a tour with Alii Kayaks - especially with guide Kai! After kayaking down the Wailua River and then hiking to the waterfall, I accidentally dropped my phone in the waterfall. Incredibly, Kai went back the next day with goggles and ACTUALLY RECOVERED my phone from the bottom of the waterfall!! Miraculously, it still worked after 24+ hours underwater (it was in a plastic case, but still!). I could not believe my luck. My phone wasn't backed up, and it had so many memories on it...so this meant the world to me! Thank you, Kai!
