Alii Kayaks Reviews
My husband and I were turned to Ali'i Kayaks by my sister and brother in law because they had such a good time a couple years back and our tour exceeded all of our expectations! Blake was our incredib... more »
Vance was super knowledgeable of the area and a great tour guide. My only criticism would be that i felt rushed on the kayak. It was like everyone was in a race! more »
What a great day. Upon arrival, they provided a dry bag to stow our stuff in. After shuttling to the marina we had a beautiful paddle up river. Our guide, Rocky, was an awesome tour guide. He shared loads of local knowledge and history with us. As we hiked to the falls he pointed out so many things we could have missed out on all while making the hike safe and enjoyable. The waterfall was amazing. This was a high point of our trip.
To be clear I do not blame for the weather but there were several things that could have been different to improve the experience. We had a 5 hour kayak and secret falls hike scheduled for 9:30am. I called at 8 to confirm our reservation because it had been raining and our prior day tubing adventure had been cancelled. They confirmed the reservation and that the tour was going out. So we drove the 40 minutes from where we were staying to the meeting spot. Upon start time we were told it was cancelled. We rescheduled for the next day and were told to call before driving in. So I call at 7:30 and 7:45 while we are on the road, no answer. Arrive at 8 for our 8:30 tour, check in, everything seems fine. Wait till after 8:30 to find out from our tour guide (who could have been Matthew McConaugheys younger brother) who really seemed to prefer that we not go on the tour, that the tour is again cancelled due to weather. They did give us a full refund, but the other company who cancelled our morning tubing tour called us 2 hours before hand to cancel. The weather was not able to be helped and they did offer a shorter adventure without the waterfall, but not receiving until after our tour was supposed to start both times could have easily been fixed. The girl at the front desk was nice. We don't plan to attempt to book with them again.
