We had a Great Time on the Kayak Tour. Our guide was friendly, kind, very helpful crossing some of the harder hiking areas & a pleasure to be with. Should I return to Kauai I would take another tour with our guide. Lots of Fun

Awesome day with Nathan and Rainbow Kayak Tours. Great location, quick drive to the boat launch. 2 mile kayak is a good distance and the hike is beautiful. Summon the courage to go behind the waterfall and you won’t regret it!
