Paddle along the Huleia River, hike from the riverbank to waterfalls, travel across ranch-lands on a wagon and zip through the forest for a thrilling flight!

Description

Paddle. Ride. Fly. Take a fun downwind, two-mile kayak trip on the beautiful Huelia River. Then, take a short nature walk to the waterfall and swimming hole! After a refreshing dip, a covered wagon takes you across Kipu Ranch to Kamapua'a Falls, the trail head for a short stroll to an incredible picnic spot. Following lunch, take the option for an impossibly long center dismount tandem zipline ride over a waterfall and river, or return to the river bank on foot via an 80-foot suspension bridge for a ride back to the dock on a Hawaiian double-hulled motorized canoe.

Eceeeded our expectations and had a great time.

It was awesome but too short. Actually it was perfect and the guides where all awesome. Vegas, Alex and Jeff, thanks you all!!!!... A definite do over once out again. The Tabars more

Brian and Nikki Tabar

LOVED Milo and Dee! Great times! Lots of wonderful local information and stories too.

Naks

My friends and I can't say enough good things about the staff at Outfitters Kauai. We had a blast with the staff during our ...kayaking, hiking, swimming, rope-swinging, truck riding. Everyone, from Rachel to Lauren to Nate were all very pleasant, humorous and overall good people. This excursion is absolutely recommended for anyone and everyone looking for an overall great time. This is absolutely the first thing that we will be looking forward to on our next visit to Kauai. more

C2O

Overall this was a great trip. It would have been a little nicer to have a slightly smaller group (we had 20 people and they told... us it was one of the largest they had ever done), but otherwise excellent. Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable and it was a LOT of fun! more

Mr. Anonymous

My husband and I have different ways of looking at the world. If you are familiar with the left brain/right brain descriptions, th...at's us. He is logical, likes order, and is an analytical thinker. I am creative, naturally chaotic, and a brain storm kind of thinker. We both loved this tour. We are a little above average fitness-wise, however, we haven't had many outdoor adventures. The way this tour was set up we were given instructions and guidance so we could experience the beauty of Kauai without the experience neccessary to do this on our own. The kayaking was so much fun my husband and I agree we would both like to learn more about it. We weren't sure about the ziplining, but that was a lot more fun then we expected. The swim around the waterfall was awesome! One of the guides led us under the falls and it was beautiful. The staff was great! They did everything they could to make our day fun. I would highly recommend them and this tour. more

Mr. Anonymous

WOW! This all day activity was one of the highlights of our Kauai family vacation! A little bit of everything. Beautiful scenery, ...great variety of information from the guides (nature and entertainment-wise), lots of fun. Especially enjoyed the kayaking, hike and swims. We would definitely do this again. (Family of 4 - 2 teen-aged girls). more

Mr. Anonymous

If you want to do something off the normal "Lounge Chair Larry", this is the trip to take. We met wonderful friends, enj...oyed the whole day, and tested our mettle to boot ! I'd do this again, and would put on the bug spray as soon as the kayaking is done. I even loved the turkey sandwiches and pasta salad !Great team with Adam and Kaite and both should get a raise !!! more

Bruce

My boyfriend and I had a really great time on this adventure. Our favorite part was the ziplining. We wish there were more lines! ...I'm scared of heights but enjoyed it so much I can't wait to do it again! The kayaking was nice despite the rain. We saw a few "movie spots" during our ride down the river. Also, saw some really beautiful sceneries. The hiking was not strenuous but there were a few times where you really had to watch your step. Also, for those very prone to mosquito bites, be sure to put it on! It was pretty windy so the guides said we probably wouldn't have to worry about the mosquitos but I ended up getting bit 6 times before I was able to put some repellant. Overall, a really great experience. This is a great tour if you want a piece of everything. more

Mr. Anonymous

We absolutely loved this outing! It was a little bit of everything. The view from the kayak was amazing and the hikes are no where... near as strenuous as they note. The ziplines were more than we expected. There are two zips and the final one being tandem and nearly 1800'. Awesome!! The guides were extremely friendly and make the experience enjoyable and informational. We will definitely do this trip again!! more

Ed

We had a wonderful time. The scenery is spectacular, and everything we did on this excursion was fun and exciting! Highly recommen...d it. It is strenous though so keep that in mind. We did our trip on March 19, 2010, my husband and I are over 50 years old and my daughter and her friend 19 years old. Hope to do it again one day! Thank you to the staff, they are wonderful! more

Cheryl Doherty

Definately worth it.

Jenn

This adventure was absolutely fabulous. My husband and I loved the kayaking. It was our first time to zipline and we both would ...love to do it again. We are in our forties and felt like 25 again. The swing at Kipu Falls was a blast. Definately recommend to everyone! Our guides were fabulous! more

Texas Couple

I had such a great time on the Safari tour. I had Alex, Maggie and Adrienne as my tour guides and they were FANTASTIC! Our group... laughed so much and I felt really safe having Alex and Adrienne there to explain what we were supposed to do during the zipline and jumping off Kipu falls. I had a blast and was totally pumped up after I left for the rest of the day. I would recommend this tour to everyone who's going to Kauai! Thanks so much for the fabulous adventure! Allison more

Allison Cook

We just returned from an awesome trip to Kauai and this was by far our favorite activity! It had a little of everything...kayakin...g, hiking, ziplines and cooling off in a stream fed pool. I was a little concerned about our kids, ages 9 and 11, but they handled the kayaking, hiking and ziplining with ease. We thought it was definitely worth the money. The 1800' zip was the best! We would do it again in a heartbeat! more

Mr. Anonymous

My husband and I were island-hopping on our honeymoon when we participated in the Zipline Safari with Hiking and Kayaking in Kauai.... One of our guides said he felt it was his job to make us fall in love with his island, and this tour certainly helped us do that. The price was fair for all of the inclusions of the tour, and the lunch provided was more than enough food. We had never been kayaking, but the river was very smooth and calm, so we were able to keep up and didn't have any issues. The hikes, swimming spots, stories, and "history lessons" were amazing. I have never seen such a beautiful forest. The Zipline was awesome as well and our guides took every safety precaution necessary to make us feel at ease. I would definitely recommend this activity for anyone looking for a more physical adventure. Be sure to wear a bathing suit, sunscreen, and bring hiking sandals or water socks because you should definitely get wet! more

Jessica

My wife an I are both empty nesters (read that to mean at or near 50.) We've both been travelers and everywhere we go, we sc...hedule events that expose us to the area we are visiting and the people and history of the area. This event was so much fun and at no time did we feel anything be valued as being in the care and guidance of Dida and Danny. You will meet people from all corners of the world. Eat a good low fat breakfast the morning of this event. Water is provided, and take advantage of it. Our personal thanks to this outfitter for giving us a memory of our visit to Kauai we will never forget. more

Steve and Maria

Kipu Zipline Safari was a blast!! The tour is packed with 7 hours of fun activities. Although little pricey, but there is no othe...r tour package on the island that can rival the Kipu Safari in terms of excitement. The tour guides are very knowledgeable about the island and extremely friendly. They're also very careful in handling our food. However, for those of you whose ideas of fun includes relaxing and sunbathing at the beach, this trip is not for you. But, if you're interested in little adventures and learnings and don't mind getting wet and muddy, this trip is not be missed. more

William

Fantastic trip--very unique. Great guides-Danny and Arem made the day very enjoyable. They were funny, informative, and very hel...pful. more

Jan Seiler

We had a great time. Guides were amazing!! Would highly recommend this excursion.

Stevens Family

Knowledgeable, friendly, considerate and safety concern

Lilia alcantara

We had an amazing adventure with the wonderful staff at Outfitters Kauai. The zips were so fun, and we felt very safe. The kayak i...n was a fun little adventure and the hike in wasn't tough at all. The staff were so wonderful. We felt like there us no way we could have had so much fun for a whole day deal for the price. Nick, Mitch, and Golden were so funny and personable. Bring a camera with a wrist strap, your swim suit for the two swimming holes (one with a mini zip), sunscreen, water shoes, and big spray. Mahalo, Outfitters!! Ya'll are the best! more

Leddon

This was amazing & worth every penny. The hike was challenging because of the slippery, muddy, sloping terrain, but everybody... in the group managed it without a problem. We had a blast. The staff were super! more

Jenny

Fantastic experience with professional and fun guides. We booked this activity due to the diversity of the kayak-swim-zipline act...ivities offered, which we thought would be perfect for our group of 6 ranging in age from 11 to 68. We were not disappointed. Easygoing and fun tour guides, great activities and a relaxed and fun atmosphere, coupled with a great lunch made for an overall epic day. Book it! more

Erik

Highly recommend this tour. Guides were great and everything went good. Only downer was they are kinda in a drought. Waterfalls an...d streams were down on water. But as far as the tour went, it was a great time to be had by all. more

Bruce and Jan

This was a wonderful activity. The guides are knowledgable, patient, and friendly. Be sure to wear your bug repellant on the hike.... It takes a little time to get going, but the tips for proper kayaking/zipping and safety are well worth it!! A special shout out to Mahow (Heavenly Mist) and Aaron, you're AWESOME. more

Kelly, Scott Maxwell

From kayaking to hiking to zipping our day was fantastic. Julio and the gang were top notch and we learned the mysteries of the c...hickens. more

Matt L

My husband and I had an amazing adventure zip lining (for the first time ever!) kayaking, hiking and swimming on the beautiful isl...and of Kaua'i. Our tour guides, Dan, Flip, and Matteas were incredible. SO fun, supportive, informative, and upbeat and really put Me at ease with the things that were more "scary" for me. They are true professionals with a fun-loving spirit and made me feel safe and secure while laughing a LOT! They also know the history, botany, and many interesting facts and stories about the island, so we learned a lot. Now I know what leaf to use As a natural insect repellant! I highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants to get out and truly experience Kaua'i up close and personal! more

Alicia D

This is a must for anyone visiting Kauai. The staff were exceptional and the tour was too. It was my favorite part of the vacation.... more

Crystal

One of the highlights of our trip. The guides were fantastic!

Tricia

This is a day-long somewhat physically challenging adventure, with a little bit of everything for the physically active adventure ...seeker. There is a lot of uneven hiking terrain involved, so just make sure you're physically up to the conditions. more

Gail Shirley

We had a great time and the activities were so enjoyable! The staff and guides were very friendly. Overall, it was a nice and mem...orable experience. Suggestion: Please have better food options for vegetarians. :) more

Priyamvadha and Venkat

This was an awesome excursion! The combo of boating,zipping, and swimming in the weird zip line area, the drive and views made thi...s trip great! I would definitely do this again! It was so much fun! Definitely wear water shoes or something though it is very wet and slippery. more

Hulala

Good trip overall, but took awhile to get started. Kayaking and hiking was easy and fun. The 2 ziplines were good and long. The ...lunch they provided was o.k. There are several places to get wet during the hikes that were fun. If you can't decide on what kind of adventure you want to do then this is a great mix. more

Travel4fun Group

There was a mixup with our reservation. We reserved through Veltra for a Thursday. Veltra confirmed that it was for Thursday. We s...howed up and no one was there. We called Kauai Outfitters who let us know that we were on the books for Friday. I contacted Veltra afterwards and they apologized and offered a partial refund, which I appreciate. I would suggest calling Kauai Outfitters to double check that the dates are right, to be on the safe side. We went back on Friday and had a great time. The guides were wonderful. The tour was great. The zip line was so amazing. We were bitten by mosquitoes, so bring bug spray. We were in a small group of 10 people and 4 guides, so it was a personalized experience and we had tons of time to talk to the guides. We would definitely do another tour with Kauai Outfitters. more

Carolyn

While we stopped in two muddy holes for swimming, there was no waterfall swim as announced. Kayaking was really nice and peaceful.... While the zip lines are long there are only two of them (not the three as described). Also a special note for the lunch, best lunch from all the activities we did, that has been improved since the previous reviews. more

Beleu

A little crowded with decent food. The line to get in was a little much.

Jenn

We were in Hawaii for our 25th anniversary and this was our first trip we had booked. My husband was really looking forward to th...e kayaking and I was really looking forward to the ziplining. Unfortunately because of the weather (nothing the staff could have done about it - they were really great people!), but we ended up kayaking down a mud river in pouring rain. Hiking through a muddy forest. Lunch was great (sun came out and beautiful spot), but we were super disappointed that there were only 2 ziplines and then the waterfall swim was more like a mud puddle splash. Unbelievably...the weather got worse and we hiked what seemed like 5 miles out of the wettest, muddiest conditions we've ever experienced and took an open boat ride back. Soaking wet, really cold with wind blowing on you from boat ride. Our whole group all tried to keep our spirits up, after all, we're in Hawaii, but you could tell that everyone just wanted it over by the end. An unfortunate shame...probably would have rated it a 4 if it had been a sunny day. more
