We had an awesome time kayaking and hiking yesterday. Jamie is the best tour guide we have had on all of our tours since we have been in Hawaii. We recommend her and Kayak Wailua for a great time.

We enjoyed kayaking up the river at a leisurely pace, hiking through the jungle, and then swimming in a waterfall! It was a "bucket-list" experience! Brandon was an awesome, knowledgeable, and funny guide!

We have visited Kauai 3 times and this was the first time we tried the kayaking. We were tempted to try kayaking without a guide but are so glad we didn't. The experience was much more enjoyable having a knowledgeable guide with us. He was very entertaining and great with our kids. I especially appreciated him asking each of our... More

Lisa was a wonderful guide showing us a lot along the path to the Secret falls. She made sure one lady in the group that had a knee issue was doing well and everyone enjoyed their time at their own pace. It was not rushed. It had been raining quite a bit so the path was very muddy. It is... More

Our kayak trip with Kayak Wailua was awesome! Jace and Kawika were very informative and entertaining. Instead of meeting on the river we met at their office which was both near where we were staying in Kapaa and close to the river. Very convenient! I would absolutely hire them again next time I am in Kauai for another kayak adventure.

First time to The island so we read a lot of reviews. We were excited because for such a reasonable price and all the good reviews. When I called to book I told them we are traveling with at 60 plus year old woman who never has been in a kayak and we are worried about hike to falls. He... More

Thank you very much for your review of your experience with Kayak Wailua. The trail conditions can vary drastically from one day to the next. Your local guide, Kawika, has guided this tour more than 1000 times. Our guides do get annoyed when their recommendations are ignored. Water shoes which you choose to wear are inadequate when the trail is... More

Our family of 5 adults thoroughly enjoyed our 5 hour adventure with Kayak Wailua. My husband and I (in our 60's) were a bit apprehensive and almost didn't go because of reading past reviews. We're so happy we decided to "bite the bullet" and go. If we hadn't we would have missed a fabulous day. There was mud and some... More

We had a really great guide- Brandon. He was friendly and was great with the two little kids that were in our group. The kayaking and hiking were fun and we arrived at the waterfall before all of the other groups. I would definitely recommend doing the morning tour! They were probably only 4 or 5 other people at the... More
