Know More about this tour

Paddle deep into the heart of the island on this kayaking Kauai adventure, all the way to the shadow of Mt Wai'ale'ale. After an easy paddle upstream, you'll tie your kayaks to a tree and take a somewhat rugged and very beautiful 1 mile (1.6km) hike to a dramatic 100' (30 meter) waterfall. Sit on some big basalt boulders at the bottom of the pool and savor a delicious picnic lunch while enjoying the stunning scenery that surrounds you. Then, hike back down to the ruddered tandem open cockpit kayaks for some more fun paddling!
As you pass through this spectacular and interesting valley by kayak and on foot, your guide will be sharing the mana'o (knowledge) of the island. You'll be filled in on the history of ancient Kauai and how the Ali'i (royalty) and Maka'ainana (common people) lived and played here long ago. You'll learn about the unique and unusual medicinal and food plants that inhabit Kauai's Wailua River Valley, as well as identifying many beautiful ornamental plants, both native and introduced. All this will take place as you get to know each other and have some laughs in this incredible setting.
The return part of this kayaking Kauai tour is downstream, but into the trade winds, giving you a bit of a workout on this leg of the journey. If you don't mind a bit of exercise, this tour will be the one for you! With swimming holes and native exotic botanical wonders, the Wailua truly is a fantasy world of Hawaiian deep jungle scenery.

  • Meeting the group at the launch site was confusing we were asked to park well away from the boat ramp at an unrelated business to meet the driver who had us get in the van to drive to the other end of the parking lot together. The guide was nice, but we had to pull information instead of having it provided. Seeing ducks wag their tails at the excitement of pending feeding was novel, but should a guide really be demonstrating feeding wild animals? Beyond that, the beautiful waterfall destination was very crowded at one point we counted 6 different tour groups bathing.

  • This was an unbelievable experience, and worth every cent. The Kayaking was a first time event for the three of us, and the climb to this breathtaking waterfall was not to be missed. This had to be our favorite event of our time in Kauai. Thank you to our wonderful guide Tristan, who took such good care of us, We will be back

  • Great Kayak down a beautiful river with a nice cool dip at Kauai's secret waterfall over packed lunch. The paddle home was pretty strenuous for us against the current and wind, but everybody made it safely.

  • Breathtaking! Elvis was great, we traveled as a family...kids still saying, well...Elvis said....

  • Loved this tour!!! Relaxing yet adventurous!

  • This tandom kayaking and hike trip up the Wailua River and the Valley of the Kings was very enjoyable and quite stunning. The guide was very informative regarding the extended history of the Hawaiin people and their habitation of the area.The adventurous walk on the jungle path was beautiful.

  • Fun day!!

  • We had a great time! Great tour by Adam! The company was very friendly and accommodating. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because there were so many other groups going to the waterfall at the same time. It was overcrowded when we arrived and paddling back. Overall a great tour.

  • We were picked up at our Hotel by our guide Kevin. He had lunches and extra drinks packed in waterproof bags as advertised. THe trip was great! Kayak trip was about 2 miles, very pleasant. The hike to waterfall was only a couple of miles as well. Kevin was very knowledgeable about local flora and history. Waterfall was gorgeous. Trip out was great too. We did not need our bug spray, Overall trip rating 5 stars!

  • Our tour guide was amazing! His personality made the whole day fun! My wife and I have never kayaked before, and this first experience was awesome. Food was great. The guide made this adventure an educational experience and also took out time with each couple.
