I would highly recommend that you do this activity on your own. The kayaking is easy and fun and there are rentals very near the put in. The price is a little steep for the easy kayaking and snorkeling right off the St. Regis resorts...More

We did the 5 hour tour! Kayaked up the Wailua River. Hiked to the Bridal-Veil Waterfall. Enjoyed lunch at the waterfall. Tubed back down the river to our kayaks. Then kayaked back down to the starting point. It was AMAZING!

Andy was awesome, we fed wild horses, visited a waterfall, and did some jumping off a cliff into the Waimea river. About 6 miles of kayaking total.

Sporty but unique day. Brian is incredibly positive and gives good energy for everyone to take it to the end of this long kayak trip. With a bit of motivation and vitality, the 17 miles are challenging, but more doable than it may seem. Unique...More

You won't get dirty necessarily. However, we went to the Marriott and they let us use a hospitality suite for $30 to shower and change. There are other hotels close by that may have the same deal.

Cliff jumping is precarious on all Hawaiian waterfalls. Rotten rock and shallow pools. If you do ...make sure you buy a wheel chair in case you survive. Micco
