Half-Day Kayak and Waterfall Hike Tour in Kauai with Lunch

The kayaking part was really fun, smooth waters and taught me a lot about my questionable steering abilities. The hike was beautiful and offered a variety of different sceneries. Waterfall was amazing, would highly recommend getting into the water to feel the full power of it. Pro tip: If you plan on going behind the waterfall, bring with you a set of goggles if you want to see anything (think fire hose to the face). Would recommend highly! Zack was a great guide too!

All of it! Kayaking on a beautiful river, intense hike and definitely waterfalls worthy of the trip! Our guide Zack made it all fun, explained each portion of the trip in details, so we felt safe and secure even on the muddiest and slimiest parts of the hike

Wonderful trip through the gorgeous Kauai forest, and a cool and relaxing kayak voyage along the Waimea river. Loved it.

The half-day adventure is an excellent way to explore a beautiful piece of Kauai. Our tour guide was professional and a great story-teller. After a short van ride to the river, our group of eleven guests selected 2-person kayaks and paddled 2.5 miles up the Wailua River. After landing on a sandy river beach, we hiked 1 mile to the falls along a lush path. The recent rains made the trail muddy, so we took care to avoid slipping on wet rocks. We wadded across a shallow river tributary and arrived at the falls ready for a swim. The pool at the bottom of the falls was cold and refreshing. On the pool banks, our group enjoyed an excellent lunch brought in by our guide. We then retraced our steps and paddles to return to our van. All of us had a great time!

The tour was more physical than expected. Our guide Allan went above and beyond. I had no idea I had hip problem but found out sitting in the kayak. Allan helped us out by towing us. The 1 mile in was only hard because of my hips. The water fall was a bit of a disappointment though. Allan again helped us back. I felt useless. He deserved the $50.00 tip. Next time I’ll read the explanation of what we were doing.

Great half day tour - our guide Thomas was fantastic. I would recommend going early if possible because it gets busier mid-day. The kayak and hiking portion was great. The waterfall at the end was a bit underwhelming just because it was cold and fairly shallow, but that could be just the time of year we went. Our kids are 8 and 9 and it wasn't too difficult for them at all, overall a fun family experience.

Very scenic trip with an amazing guide. Zach clearly loved his job, was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. The water paddle up the river was nice but could be a bit strenuous for some. The hike was overall manageable but had some technical sections. We had children down to 11 years old and it wasn't too hard for anyone. Highly recommend this tour.
