Great trip up and down the river and hike out to the falls. The falls are the highlight of the trip. Mike, our guide was great in telling us about the area and all during the trip. Great guide. All in our group had a great time!

Took the kayak, hike trip to Secret Falls. We are a family of 4 (kids 12 and 13) and we all had a great time. The hike was really muddy, but that just added to the experience. The kayak portion is about 4 miles round trip and you definitely get a workout. This is a really good tour to take... More

We had beautiful day to glide down the Wailua River (2 miles each way). We have canoed before but it really took some getting used to for the kayak paddling. There were only 4 of us plus the guide so that was nice. I think our guide could have been more helpful. He didn't seem particularly interested and at times... More

Did the Hanalei Bay kayak/snorkel tour with my family (kids 9&11). It was a lot of fun, we felt like we had a good chance to see some of the area, enjoy the kayaks, and enjoy the beach/surf/snorkeling. Drive your own vehicle up and you'll be able to stay and play on the beach or eat dinner or...whatever. It's Kauai.... More

If you are of average fitness or above, you should do this tour. Our guide Chris was wonderful, knowledgeable and kind, the equipment was well maintained. Here's my take from the adventure: *we are here in the first week of March, it is technically still winter. Weather is spontaneous and unpredictable. We left the falls a little early as there...

We used them as outfitters and transportation for our Kalalua hike. The tent we rented was in good shape, no missing parts or tears. The transportation was efficient and on time, especially on the return trip when we were tired and dirty! Nicely appointed shop too.
