Kayaking and Waterfall Fun

The trip was amazing. Kayaking was a lot of fun and the hike to the waterfall was excellent. The waterfall will not disappoint. Our tour guide Brian was informative with a great sense of humor and made the trip even more memorable.
Wailua River/Hidden Falls Kayak tour
, Feb 2020
My husband and I enjoyed an adventure-filled day of paddling and hiking with Duke’s kayak tours, paddling 4 miles (total) on the Wailua River, then hiking a 3 mile loop to the Hidden Falls and back to our kayaks. We got to splash in the pool of cold water beneath the falls & meet our guide’s many forest friends, and hear lots of legends and stories. Brian was a blast! My only complaint is that we booked the tour through Viator, and found out we paid $20 more per person than others who simply picked up a brochure at the airport and called the number. For the same tour, this didn’t seem reasonable. Next time we’ll do our homework, and not simply through an online agent.
So fun

We had Brian as our guide and he was entertaining, energetic and informative throughout. He was like a real life Disney Princess - singing songs and had many feathered friends!! Definitely recommend.
Secret Waterfall Kayak Fun
, Feb 2020
Brian was charming, funny, musical, and knowledgable. We thoroughly enjoyed our kayak and secret waterfall experience! If Brian hadn’t suggested and explained, I would not have gone behind the falls. He also took videos! Mahalo!

Incredible day !
, Feb 2020
Incredible journey. Brian, our guide, was the most amazing person we’ve ever met and he made our day ! He was so helpful and informative. The kayak was great and the river is beautiful, just like the hike afterwards. And the fall is really worth the journey ! But yeah, the highlight of this tour definitely was our guide, his stories and his generosity. Incredible person leading an awesome tour ! Thank you.
Kayak and waterfall

If you sign up for this you won’t be disappointed. You need to be active and fairly sure footed. Unsteady terrain, very muddy in Feb you will cross river multiple times. Wear sturdy shoes, that can get wet and muddy. Kayaks was double and river run is smooth and flat, you need to be able to paddle consistently for 45 min each way. Waterfall is beautiful and you’ll be able to cool off with a swim. Brian was a fun guide.
Wailua River and Secret Falls tour
, Feb 2020
We booked online the morning tour at 7am and meet at the pineapple store . 5 min in a van to the river, 45min in a kajak and than you will hit a muddy trail (45min one way)with 3x knee high river passes. There a lots of roots, rocks and deep puddles all the way to the waterfall. Make sure you wear the right shoes. ( water shoes or hiking sandals might be good) and shorts. Brian is a good guide and he was taking pictures from everybody under the waterfall and send them to you. We never got ours , even we phoned and left a massage in his van next day. 🙁 I guess we didn't tipped him right. The trail got really crowded on the way out. Overall it is an ok tour , but if you can ,rent just a double kayak and do it on your own, what will safe you some money and you can go your own pace. (Go early)
Swimming in the falls

We had a great time and highly recommend this activity! The trail was extremely muddy, but the waterfall was a great sight and a lot of fun to swim under. Our guide Rob was great as was the rest of our group.
