Had a great trip out on the river with our guide Troy. He was very knowledgeable of kayaking techniques, and I especially appreciated all the historical information he knew of the area. Will definitely need to work on my upper body strength before kayaking again, but this trip was so fun.

We went with a group of eight people including three kids (11, 10, and 8), plus four strangers, for a great kayak tour, hike, and waterfall swim. Half of us had never kayaked before, but our guide Kyle gave us good quick instructions and was able to coach us when things weren't going quite right. The kayak trip itself was... More

Great trip with a great guide! We appreciate the patience in dealing with us being on the slow side. It definitely is strenuous, but manageable. Definitely recommend. And Sean, our terrific tour guide said he didn't care how you spelled his name, but appreciated being mentioned. So, I spelled his name backwards in the title.

I highly recommend this trip do anyone that's on Kauai. Safe and comfortable kayak on the river , 5 miles round trip. Fairly easy hike to the waterfall and back , 2 miles round trip. They even have racks of old shoes that you can borrow for free because sometimes the trail can be very muddy and you do walk... More

Excellent trip down the river with our guide Kawika. He made sure everyone knew what they were doing with the kayaks, then let us go our own pace up the river. Throughout the hike to the falls, he shared some fascinating details of the natural surroundings and Kauai history. I'd recommend Kayak Wailua over the operator we used the last... More

We took this trip on January 9th, towards the end of our stay in Kauai, and wish we had done it sooner. Kyle gave us a lot of information about things to do and restaurants to visit and this would have made our visit a lot more enjoyable. This is a great company. Their before trip information was thorough. When... More

Had a great 1/2 day kayaking up the Wailua river a bit, then a hike to a lovely waterfall, led by our wonderful guide Lisa. She is trippy and fun, and played a drum as we walked, but also explained various sights and plants along the way. Highly recommended. Bring a snack - they provide backpacks and dry bags, and...

I wasn't sure that I'd be able to go on this journey, as I have a chronic illness that limits my stamina. Kawika, the tour guide with our group, offered to ride with me, and do most of the paddle work, to make my desire to see the river and secret falls, a reality. I so appreciated this, as the... More

Wow! This was the best excursion that we have had. We enjoyed the kayaking. The hiking was nice. The waterfalls was spectacular! Brandon was an excellent guide! He made sure we were alright when we were a little slow on the trail. He explained things along the way. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip. We will be back to enjoy... More

Kawika was an awesome guide. He stopped to tell us about local culture, different types of vegetation, and made sure we had a great time. Loved being able to split our time in the kayaks and hiking to the falls.
