What To Expect
Wailua River State Park
Paddle the majestic Wailua River for 2 miles each way (4 miles total round trip), original home of the first Hawaiians, who paddled 1500 miles from the Marquesas Islands to Kaua`i almost 1500 years ago. Hear the legends and learn about the flora and fauna of Kauai`s most sacred area.
Secret Falls (Uluwehi Falls)
After hiking 1 1/4 miles through the rain forest our guides will take clients to Secret Falls also known as Uluwehi Falls. This beautiful waterfall cascades 110 feet into a refreshing swimming hole, where they can go for a dip and enjoy a terrific lunch! You will then hike 1 1/4 miles back to your kayak (2 1/2 miles of hiking round trip) Bring Closed Toed Shoes / Reef shoes / Teeva Style Sandals

It's about five hours, from getting in van to getting back. They shuttled us over to the launch (great group!) had lunch and had some fruit available. It's not a pleasure cruise. It's about 4 miles of paddling (round trip, with decent exertion. Up-river there (no current) down river home (but into the face of a decent wind.) You will work. The hike is more like a 1.25 miles one-way, with a river crossing. You will get thigh-deep wet. The waterfall is excellent, had a chance to swim (we had good weather, a day or two after a few days of rain.) We had an excellent guide (Alan). Highly recommend. We've been to the island 4 times, had never done this, and we're so glad we did.

This was first time in Kauai and this tour was the highlight of my trip. From kayaking to crossing rivers to hiking on muddy/rocky terrain, you will definitely feel accomplished once you reach the waterfalls. Zach was my tour guide and he kept the trip really entertaining. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone looking for some added adventure on the island.

It's definitely worth the kayak and the hike. We really enjoyed the tour and our tour guide was awesome. Loved it!
