Kept you going from start to finish. If you like to kayak and hike, this trip is for you. Be ready to get muddy!

This was a great adventure combining easy kayaking and hike that ended at swimming in Secret Waterfall. Our guide, Matt, was also spectacular. Highly recommend for ages 7+ and any fitness level.

Good combo of kayaking and hiking with a beautiful waterfall reward. Hiking trail is greasy muddy at times so wear proper footwear. Great guides, knowledgeable about the flora and fauna along the way.More

Planning on being there in March 2016. Are the kayaks one person or two person? Is the return trip out, the same hike/kayak as into? And we didn't want to book too far in advance, weather depending. What is the ideal time out for booking a trip? Thanks..

The Kayaks are 2 person, the kayak trip is the same, sometimes the guide will take a slightly different route on the way back during the hike, as far as the weather is really hard to say. It well worth it and worth the... More

We are arriving in Kauai mid-March with 20 year old twins who want to kayak and hike. It looks like Kayak Adventures offers just what we are looking for and your reviews on line look great! What type of shoes do you need? Water shoes for kayaking and hiking shoes also? Do you come wearing your swimming suit under shorts? In general, how do you dress for this? Do you pick up at the hotel? Do you bring your own lunch? How soon do we need to make reservations? Is it too early now? Thanks.

We have a timeshare with the Westin Villas in Princeville so we stayed there for two glorious weeks - every other year.
