It rained during our whole tour, but that didn't spoil any of the fun or the beauty of the landscape. Doc was a great guide! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an outdoorsy experience in Kauai!

We booked the private tour with a guide, so all the equipment were provided. Sorry I didn't remember how much it was.
