Kayaking / Canoeing · Boat Tour
Your Kauai kayak tour begins with an inspiring 2-mile paddle along the tropical waterways of the Wailua River with the safety and expertise of your guide. Paddle past Kamokila Hawaiian Village where the movie Outbreak was filmed. From here we will bank our kayaks and begin our 1 mile journey through the tropical rainforest which was once reserved for Hawaiian royalty. The tropical rain-forest is a very sacred and special place to the Hawaiian people -- and we would like to share it with you!

Along the hike, your friendly and knowledgeable guide will show you ancient Hawaiian sites and will point out the various flora and fauna along the way. In addition to the vast history of the Wailua Valley, your guide will show you remains where the first Hawaiians lived in the area 1,500 years ago.

The grand finale is a short hike to the beautiful 125ft. Uluwehi Falls (Secret Falls) where you can take pictures, swim, play under the waterfall and enjoy a deli lunch. Perfect for Family Fun!

  • We got a rental and not a tour. Unbelievably affordable and easy, even with a smaller Chevy vehicle they helped us strap a 2 person kayak on top no problem.

  • These folks are so friendly, honest and ensured we were safe even when it wasn’t in their best business interest! Super honorable and cool of them. We’ll definitely be back
