About Outfitters Kauai
Outfitters Kauai has been making vacations awesome since 1988! Offering you a wide range of activities, including HAWAII’S LONGEST ZIPLINE; Exciting Ocean and River Kayak Tours; Waimea Canyon Downhill Biking Tours; SUP Tours; along with hiking and swimming options for many of our guided adventures. Zipline Tours: On May 1, 2017, Outfitters Kauai launched their newest additions... the 3/4 mile long FlyLine Kauai Zipline, and the Kipu Ranch Visitor Welcome Center. The result is improved and reconfigured Zipline Tour packages, and a new, convenient check-in location. Each zipline tour is unique as our lines vary by size, skill-level, and terrain. Fly with us over lush valleys, tumbling waterfalls and forest canopies — landscapes made famous by movies like Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Indiana Jones. Kayak Tours: If you want to explore the secret beaches and hidden waterfalls of Kauai, Hawaii, look no further than our kayak tours. Outfitters Kauai offers both ocean and river kayaking. Each tour is unique and combines kayaking with additional activities like hiking, snorkeling, swimming, and wildlife viewing. See the famed Na Pali Cliffs, or take a Poipu Whale Watch tour (seasonal). Paddle-Boarding Tours: We invite you to take a standup paddle along a tranquil jungle stream, ringed by the majestic Hau’pu Mountains. The adventure starts with a quick SUP lesson, then you’ll be fitted with a paddle and board that is just the right fit. Outfitters Kauai provides paddlers with top-quality equipment, so you can paddle with ease and get the most out of your adventure. Downhill Bike Tours: Our bike tour takes you alongside what is called “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” at 3,600 feet on the west side of Kauai. As you wind your way down this geological wonder, you will enjoy panoramic views of crested buttes, amazing waterfalls, rugged crags and deep valley gorges. From the main lookout point, there are dramatic views of Kauai’s lush interior and dazzling ocean coast. Think of this as a nature walk on two wheels, complete with refreshments and information about the culture, history and folklore of Kauai.

Thank you outfitters for hosting such a great adventure. We have created life long memories by taking the zip line safari tour. From the kayaking down the river, to swimming in a watering hole, from beginning to end, the trip leaders were kind, informative and funny! I recommend this adventure to anyone visiting Kaua’i.

This was a great adventure to a beautiful hike and waterfall. Our guide was Brian and he was hands down the best guide we have ever had on a tour anywhere. He called and kept us informed regarding his arrival time (we met the group at the docking area). He was relaxed, knowledgeable and kind. But most importantly we felt safe the whole time. In fact, another guide we passed on the adventure said "oh you're with Brian, he is the best guide there is." We definitely felt that. There were two people per kayak and the adventure started with kayaking up the river. It was relaxing but with the wind there was some work. We then made it to the "beach" area where we stopped to start our hike The hike is over rocks and uneven terrain. While we saw families with young children, I would advise those with physical limitations and with young children to be prepared. The river crossing is dynamic. Per our guide, the depth and flow of the river changes depending on how much rain. Because of this, I honestly wouldn't do the hike with my young children. The area is also prone to flash flooding during rain season, so I was happy to hear our guide was monitoring river conditions and had access to an alert on his phone if flash flooding was a possibility. Once past the river, the hike is fairly easy due to nice boardwalk that was put in during the 2020 pandemic shut down. It is narrow so time was spent standing aside as other groups passed. The waterfall was amazing. We swam in it and Brian took some fabulous pictures of us. Lunch was good. After the kayaking and hike, we were starving so I would have used more food, maybe some chips or something. Because of this, I would highly recommend bringing snacks. Overall we had a great experience. We learned a lot and had fun. We would definitely do it again but only with Brian as our guide. One last note- we did many guided adventures during our trip to Kauai. Island time is real. This is so different than tours we have done on the mainland- which start on time and end on time and are fast pace. This tour was relaxed. We never felt rushed and really got a taste of "island time". But this also resulted in the tour being longer than 4.5 hrs. So just be aware so you don't over book yourself. There are other tour companies that do a few tours a day, so the pace is faster if that is something you need.

We did the safari trip with kayaking, zip lining, hiking, and rope swings. Kids ranged from 8-21 and all had a great time. Mitch and Keegan were great guides.

We enjoyed all three parts of this tour. The kayaking was a fun paddle up the river. Hiking to the Hidden Valley Falls was an adventure and two of the tour members actually used the seat swing! The motorized canoe ride was a welcome finish to our tour. I recommend this tour!!!

We really enjoyed our kayaking, hiking, swimming tour. The tour guide was knowledgable and funny, and he answered all additional questions we had of him. I only wish the kayaking portion was longer. Just when I felt like we got into our groove of double kayaking, it was over. Overall, though, a really fun experience.
