Beautiful kayaking onvthe river followed by a slippery, muddy, fun hike to the waterfall. Rewarded with a cool swim under the falls. Enthusiastic, informative guide.

Reasonable priced. Bring hiking shoes, very muddy, but worth it. Pack water and snacks you burn a lot of calories.

I'm going to be by myself. Do you have single kayaks or can one person use a double? Thanks

Can you do this tour if pregnant? Also, we have our 2 year old with us. Would my husband be able to kayak with her and then hike with her in the hiking back pack?
