Getting prepped and loaded up on our kayak was quick and easy after a short tutorial with our excellent guide Jordan, who was also a pleasure to have guiding us and he was incredibly kind and knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. We stopped a few times to talk about the horticulture, and the history of the land as it was used by the royal families. You can’t help but be in awe of such a beautiful place

Fantastic, fun and stunning beauty!
Carla_J, Sep 2023
Absolutely fantastic trip. Kayaking was awesome! Reese was the best guide- patient, informative and genuine! 5stars++ The hike was beautiful, waterfall stunning. Would do again! Highly recommend!!!
Not what I was expecting.
Ramona_M, Sep 2023
It was a hard paddle up and down the river and the waterfall was packed with people and the pool was brown, that water did feel nice and after the paddle it was refreshing. Lunch was water, chips and a sandwich that was awful. Not something I’d sign up for twice. Guide was informative. Might have been more fun in a smaller group.
Awesome adventure

Had a great time combining the kayaking with the hiking. Can be difficult at times if not able to walk over rocky areas but its a great tour for those who are able bodies. We had a wonderful time!
Post how hard this your is on your website
Monica_W, Sep 2023
Your website never mentioned the difficulty of this tour. 3 miles of strenuous hiking through slippery terrain and rocks for people who have back issues should have been advised. If I had known how difficult the whole 7 mile tour was, I’d never have booked.

Due to rain the prior night over safety concerns were not able to complete the waterfall hike. The kayaking experience was great…
Adventure secret falls
Todd_M, Sep 2023
Our tour guide Helm was very adept at his job. We were impressed by the relationship he had with the animals. I called him, Tarzan we loved how he called the bird and whistled back and forth and then dig in the dirt with his toes to feed the bird. Crossing the little river was probably my least favorite part yet a great adventure. The hike to the Falls was definitely worth that beautiful view. I would definitely recommend this to friends.

Learning about the animals and plants, swimming in the water and the waterfall. It was a great day all around.
Awesome energetic experience!
PATRICIA_O, Sep 2023
Thomas was a wonderful, friendly and informative guide! He looked after our whole group and showed genuine interest in each member. This tour was a bit challenging for me at age 71, but the walking sticks provided for the hike part were invaluable! I would highly recommend this adventure!
Great experience
Antonette_H, Sep 2023
Katie our guide was fun, friendly and kept us safe. This kayak and hike trip is beautiful and you get different experiences between being on the water then hiking to a water fall. Loved it
Don’t miss this adventure!
Jean_W, Sep 2023
This was a fantastic adventure that gave me and my family a vacation we will never forget! There is nothing like having a guide to teach us about the island and Reece, our guide, is a native of the island so he was able to give us more information than we expected!
Fun Active Adventure
Marika_l, Sep 2023
Fun day if you are looking for an active adventure. River had a mild current so it was a fairly easily paddle and beautiful surroundings. Hike was muddy and involves some climbing over rocks but so worth it for the waterfall. Our guide Alan was extremely knowledgeable with plant facts and Hawaiian history. It was one of our trip highlights and loved the experience.
Helm, was super...
Chelsey_N, Sep 2023
Helm, was super informative about nature and the local wildlife. His laidback personality really made the experience made it feel like we were with family.
Incredible tour to a secret waterfall!

I loved kayaking on the river. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We had a great tour guide--Katie. She did a wonderful job. And the waterfall was stunning!
Would definitely do it again.
Steve_K, Aug 2023
The guide was great. He knew a lot about the plant life and explained what different items would do to help people. He was very helpful. The hike to the waterfall was great.
Relaxing river kayak

Kayak on the river was so peaceful & relaxing. The hike was very adventurous & little difficult, but thankfully our guide had walking sticks which was very helpful in the slippery muddy parts of hike. Absolutely loved our excursion!

This was an absolutely awesome tour!! I loved it!! The kayaking was so much fun! The hike was so interesting and I learned so much about local flora.
