Description

This half-day trip of hiking and paddling on the Wailua River is a must-do activity while on Kauai. With an easy-going voyage in a tandem kayak and a moderate hike to a beautiful waterfall, you can truly appreciate the diversity and stunning beauty of the island, an outdoor enthusiast's paradise.

Enjoy the serene surroundings of the Wailua River as you paddle in a tandem kayak. Your local guides share the rich Hawaiian history and legends of the Wailua River Valley while serenading you with a ukulele or sharing local music. After paddling up the river’s North Fork, begin your moderate 2-mile (3-km) hike through a tropical rainforest.

Make your way along the muddy trail and admire the views of the sacred valley lined with scenic waterways, Hawaiian ruins, and native flora and fauna. Then get an opportunity to swim and eat lunch at the beautiful 120-foot (36-m) Uluwehi Falls, also known as Secret Falls. After enjoying the view at Secret Falls, this eco-adventure concludes.

We had so much fun! Vance was an exceptional leader, teaching us safety as well as the rich history of the island. His fun and playful manner encouraged conversation and comfort spending the day with 8 other strangers. We loved every minute!

Fantastic day. 1.5 miles kayak + 2 miles relatively easy hike (could be a little challenging if raining or very muddy). Then lunch at the falls and then retrace hike and kayak. The scenery is right out of Indiana Jones - literally the river where they filmed Indiana escaping to the plane. It is a magical location. Past the Queen’s bath and to the 130 ft waterfall that fills the clear pool at it’s base. Swam / walked (only 4-5 ft deep) to stand under the waterfall. Fantastic. Our guide, Kai, was wonderful. His stories of his native Hawaiian family and his knowledge of the plants and history added another dimension. At one point he stopped, dug for grub, then called a wild bird to eat it from his hand. Can’t say enough about him. Only caveat is: expect to get wet feet. You will cross a stream with a rope guide and other small streams that require wading to knees. Wear the right shoes and as Kai said, “embrace your inner catfish” by feeling your way across.

We are 2 62 year old southern ladies and we had a ball on this tour! Our guide was great and made each of us a souvineer from vines and leaves as we hiked to Secret Falls. The kayak portion of the trip was easier going than coming back and our group of youngsters were very patient and kind waiting on us to finish. The hike was fun and in the woods with major stumps and rocks to climb over along with several 12" + streams with rocks to hike through. Wear your water hiking shoes, your hat and take some bug spray and have the time of your life!
