Did the river Kayak and Snorkel. Great experience...please note if you have snorkeled a lot, the snorkeling is not that great...there are better spots on the island to snorkel. The guides were super nice, kayaking was beautiful on the river and the ocean.

Perfect activity for almost anyone on any day. The wife and I have done this before with the organized tour, which is outstanding. This time we just rented for the afternoon and went up and down the river finding painted turtles and fresh water fish up river and then large green sea turtles by the mouth of the Hanalei river...

This was our third visit to Kauai, and I had a couple of things I wanted to scratch off my "bucket list" - SUP was #1 on my list. I am not a good or strong swimmer at all so I have always been wary of sports that involve going into water above my head. I love snorkeling but like... More

My husband and I went for three surf lessons. They were all awesome. Kolo was the bomb!! You won't be disappointed going here.

Most memorable time of our vacation was definitely this kayak/snorkeling adventure. We had a small group which was great because we were all inexperienced and our guide Kolo was very patient and gave great guidance. He was so informative about the history of the island, and he provided a mini luau on the beach and serenaded us with his ukulele.... More

We rented tandem kayaks and spent a few hours on a lovely river. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt it was time and money well spent.

My husband and I rented single kayaks for a 24 hour period! We had such a great time exploring the Hanalei river and bay. We did a self guided tour of the water systems and then ate our lunch on a sand bar looking out at the bay! We walked in without a reservation and had no trouble renting kayaks.... More

My friend and I enjoyed our time kayaking and snorkeling. Kolo was the best! Very knowledgeable about the area culture and sharing with us. And was very patient with the two of us.

My husband and I rented stand up paddle boards during our recent trip to Kauai and had a great experience with Kayak Hanalei. The staff was knowledgable and helpful. Equipment was in great condition. Good pricing. Great location. Since this was our first time, we spent some time on the river getting the hang of it. We then ventured down... More

We rented stand up paddle boards from the shop and started our adventure up the river. Before we started the staff gave great tips and instructions to stay dry and handle the board. The views of the river are wonderful, but it does take some effort to go up stream against the current. The cost was very reasonable. We had... More
