Had perfect weather for a trip up the river to Secret Falls. 45-60 minutes of kayaking up river, with a nice tailwind. Beached the kayaks and hiked for 30-45 minutes. Easy hike, but it was dry. Lots of spots that would be tough on a...More

A fun trip up the river. Then an adventurous hike through the jungle before reaching the water fall. Our guide was very informative and fun to be with.

This was our first time kayaking-we had a great time. The river was very calm and surrounded by beautiful greenery. The hike was also a lot of fun- a bit muddy though but was expected as we read other reviews earlier. Bring water-proof shoes preferably...More

This kayak-hike tour is beautiful, physical, messy and fun. It would be a difficult adventure, though, for anyone with physical limitations (especially shoulders, knees and legs) or issues with mud! But if you decide not to care that you are sloshing your way up to...More

I'm thinking you could probably rent kayaks and do the river on your own. There is also the Wailua river where you can go kayaking, and if you can be there when the sea is calmer than on our last trip, there is always Napali... More
