We took a morning tour to kayak & hike up to the secret waterfall! It was pretty calm on the river so easy paddling- the hike to the waterfall was a bit muddy in parts, the trickiest part of the hike is the very beginning at the stream. The waterfall is amazing!! I went under the waterfall- chilly but awesome!!... More

Best activity on the island. After kayaking our group became educated on the beauty and strength the island had to offer. Also I learned to let go and embrace the mud.

This was a great tour for my friend and I. We wanted something a bit adventurous but not too strenuous and this was the perfect fit. The falls at the end were amazing and I was happy with the time we got to spend there. Our guide was very knowledgeable in Hawaiian history and current affairs in Hawaii. He told... More

The river and surrounding scenery was beautiful and tour guide provided a few interesting facts but mostly kept pretty quiet. I went with my two kids, ages 11 and 8. On the way to the falls, I shared a kayak with my 8 year old and it went well. My 11 year old son had a single person kayak and... More

Our tour guide TC was amazing, along with his little companion dog. He was very informative and entertaining. Even to the end, when I couldn't do my kayak anymore, he towed me in. His little dog leading and I waived in like in a parade. We had a wonderful time and would love to return. Thank you TC!!

It had rained just prior to our arrival, so the path was very, very muddy. My son and his friend had the best time ever. I was a bit nervous because it was so slippery, but overall a very positive experience. Wear lots of bug spray, though. I used some, but it wasn't enough!
