Very lovely. Would do it again. It was a small group which was a plus. The tour guide was very nice a knowledgeable. Lots of people there once we got to the fall but the view was worth it.

Sierra was awesome and very knowledgeable. She went at a good pace and was very friendly. The waterfall was beautiful and well worth the trek!

The kayaking tour was wonderful! Our guide was personable and knowledgeable. With her local knowledge and effervescent personality, you can’t beat this small group tour by a lesser known business. Would highly recommend!

Katy Parry was amazing. We were SO lucky to have her as our adventure guide. She shared fascinating facts about nature, kept us organized along the river & hike and did it all with a patient and cheerful attitude. She was … perfect ! As was our day ! This adventure requires that you’re in shape due to the physical activities. Wear shoes that have a rubber sole & can get wet.

Zach was our wonderful guide on this super fun hike/kayak trip. He was funny, patient, and helpful as our family of four (and the other 8 participants) navigated our way up the Wailua River and then trekked through the jungle to the falls. It rained non-stop! Even with that, it was still just gorgeous and one of our favorite things we did/saw. None of us our super hikers or incredibly athletic (I’m 53 and walk regularly/SUP occasionally but that’s it!) so this trip is very doable. As for the hike, as long as you are careful with your footing, wear proper footwear (we all opted for old tennis shoes that could be tossed afterwards!), and don’t mind getting muddy, then you’ll love it. The kayak part was not difficult but does take some effort on the return trip with a headwind. With all the rain, we only did a quick dip in the falls then wolfed our well earned sandwiches down, then headed back. Soooo lovely and fun. Can’t recommend this trip enough!
