This is one of the best guided hikes I have ever taken, and the value for price was outstanding. Kawika was our friendly and helpful guide for the paddle and hike to a120 foot waterfall, where we swam and lunched. The kayaking was on the smooth Wailua River, with no strong current in either direction. Then a generally level hike along the river to the falls. Muddy trail, but that's hiking in Hawaii! And no bugs. Don't miss this when you are in Kauai!

The tour itself is well designed. A bit of kayaking, a bit of fun hiking through the mud, a swim at Secret Falls. It is perfect. The trip asks a bit of you physically, but you don't feel strained and the tour never felt rushed. David was a wonderful guide - helpful, fun, and easy-going. Having grown up on the island, he was very knowledgeable about the plants we passed and gave us a ton of insight on the surrounding areas. Today will rank as one of the best on my trip! I recommend it to beginning as well as advanced kayakers and all nature lovers.

My husband and I booked the night before and they were so accommodating. Our guide Lisa was amazing. Seriously. So full of information. The kayak portion is beautiful and tranquil. She tried very hard to keep us off the beaten path. The walk to the falls was challenging but well worth the effort to see the falls. Make sure you swim right up to it. So exhilarating. Then we had a little snack and were serenaded by a beautiful drum that Lisa brought in with her. As far as I am concerned this is one of the best experiences for the money imaginable.

Lisa is amazing!! She taught us how to kayak and made the whole experience full of excitement! Her knowledge of flora and fauna is incredible and very educational. We went all the way up to the falls bare feet like Lisa. Thank you Kayak Wailua for making us happy on our trip : )

Our kayak tour was absolutely amazing! My husand and my 2 children, 5 and 7, recently went on a tour with Lisa and couldn't have had a better experience. Definitely ask for Lisa when booking your trip! She was sooo nice and helpful and a walking encylcopedia of Hawaiin culture and customs. She knew the names of every plant and tree we walked by and it's heritage as well as many old Hawaiin traditions to go with it! It was like hearing a Hawaiin Story book! She was full of energy and had a great sense of humor to keep the kids laughing. The hike itself was wonderful and perfect for ourselves and our children and the waterfall was beautiful! On the whole the staff was extremely friendly and courteous to our needs and we felt very well taken care of! We would definitely book again and of course with Lisa!
