spoonerock

Josh was a great guide. He was very patient with our lack of skills with a kayak and he provided a lot of interesting information... about the area, vegetation and history, etc. We were the only participants on our tour and we felt like we had our own personal guide. The kayak was top quality and even had a rudder to help with controlling the vessel as we rowed. more

Virg

We had a great time on this tour. It is a 2.5 mile kayak and about a 2 mile hike to a spectacular waterfall. We went in March with... our 9 yr old son. These are two person kayaks that you cannot have children in the middle. I ended up pairing up with another mom who came with her family. Our guide was very knowledgeable and able to tell us all about the trees and plants around us and other things along the way. We hiked to the waterfall where we had lunch and able to swim under the waterfall. This is definitely something to try. more

The Desio's

Kayaking ride was just the right distance and hike was just perfect distance. Waterfall area was beautiful.

Britt

They took great care of my two neices. I felt secure that they were in safe hands. What fun personalities the staff have...we wou...ld recommend it to families and anyone that is looking for something new. The Staff really made an fun tour into a truly unique experience! The Jacobs Family more

Jacobs/Danielle Ms

Kayak Kauai Outbound makes this trip an experience not to be missed. Kelly was an extraordinary guide, enthusiastically sharing h...is knowledge and passion for the land, the local history and ancient culture. He went out of his way to make the hike interactive and interesting. He has a real gift for this. The operation, overall, is very laid back. You're made to feel comfortable with every aspect of the tour. We highly recommend Kayak Kauai Outbound and will surely be returning on our next visit to the island! more

Rob M.

This was a great tour because it covered three (3) sports in one (1) tour. Our tour guide Jamie was very good in all respects. I w...ould just say be prepared to get a workout. For those that don't exercise, you might want to consider something else. You don't have to be a marathon runner, but if you are a couch potato this might be a stretch for you. more

Cameron

Tour was a wonderful experience, my friend and I had a grand time! Our tour guide was great he informed us as well as kept us safe.... I would recommend the tour to anyone planning on visiting the island of Kauai. more

Rose

My wife and I made reservations online through VELTRA. I knew nothing more than the reviews posted on here (VELTRA/hawaiian activi...ties) and a travel guide book. We enjoyed our morning paddle hike and tour so much! A great adventure that would not have been accomplished so smoothly on our own. It was our first time down the trail. It rains in Kauai, a lot, so the trail was mostly muddy. The guide for the trip kept us safe and informed about how to get there best. He also lead us on hawaiian time for the return trip. Allowing us all more time at the falls since our group was composed entirely of families. I appreciated that very much and a thank you to anyone from the company who reads this. Do not expect that though on your trip, we were lucky that no tour group was scheduled in the afternoon. Our stay on the island began the last week of April, until the first week of May. You don't have to help the guide, but its friendly to do so. I bet you'll get a better trip out of it. more

We had a great adventure. Mark was great. Our kids really enjoyed this adventure. They said it was the best adventure of our tr...ip! Thank you Mark! Sandi Harris more

The Kayaking was a good workout!! The hike was so beautiful and felt like we were truly seeing the inner island jungle. The waterf...all was beautiful and we had an over all great time!!! more

Amy

Tremendous experience! It was a great mix of kayaking and hiking. Not too hard, not too easy. We had a wonderful time!

Rob K.

Because we were off season my husband and I were the only ones that signed up for a kayaking tour - so we got a private tour with ...a guide. Our guide, Christian, was very friendly, familiar with the area and so helpful to have along. Being I had never kayaked before he went over safety features and the easiest way to get in and out of a kayak! The kayaking was easy (gorgeous views along the river), the hike was fun (mud up to my knees) the waterfall at the end was beautiful. It was a very successful trip and would very happily do it all again. more

Susan Swanberg

My husband, 18-yr-old daughter,and 20-yr-old son completely enjoyed everything about this day adventure. I was unable to particip...ate -- I have a bad knee and wear a brace, and it was recommended that it would be risky for me. Afterwards, my husband said that that was the right decision -- there's a bit of hard work in getting through the mud to the falls. The guide shared interesting local information throughout the day, it was beautiful, fun, active. would do it again. Thank you! more

Ellen

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Great tour!! Our guide Kelly was awesome. He felt a little embarrassed when he wiped o...ut in the mud, but what a great time. A definite must do in Kauai. more

Chad

This tour was the highlight of our trip. My 13 year old son and I had an awesome time. Our tour guide Amos was very knowledgeable..., friendly, and my son talked about Amos and the hike the whole ride home. We will definitely do it again! more

NessaMarie

Wonderful tour guide, knowledgable and hilarious. The workout was respectable, but offered great sights along the way that kept us... interested, and an interesting hike through the Hawaiian woods. At the end the jump off a cliff into the river was tons of fun. I would definitely recommend this trip; a good mix of fun, beautiful sights, and physical exertion. more

Carl S

I would have to say this place was the best !!! They were very helpful and accommodated my wife's gluten free issue. Cole ... our tour guide was the best ,funny, patient and very informative.If we ever come back and do this again we will request him. more

Mike Elsken

Great tour and guide! Justin, our guide, was fun, informative and very patient as we were first time kayaking. The scenery was be...autiful and we would recommend this tour to everyone! Thanks again for this awesome experience!!! more

Sherri & Tom Boehm

This was one of the highlights of our trips. Being able to Kayak on a river and then being able to be under a waterfall. Definitel...y a rememberable experience. Would recommend this adventure to everybody. Best way to experience nature! more

Oahu Ohana

My husband and I had a great time on this excursion. We were the only ones signed up for our particular day and time so it ended ...up being a private tour which was a bonus. We had the morning tour (check-in at 7:45 am) which seemed a lot less crowded than the later tours. There were a lot more people hiking in on our way out. The activity was very scenic and not strenuous at all for us moderately in-shape people (my husband more so that me!). Jamie was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable in the flora, fauna, and area, but also personable so we weren't talking shop the whole time. Lunch was also more than adequate: fresh pineapple, deli sandwich on a good roll with cheese, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard, a bag of chips, 2 Kauai cookies, a drink, and 2 bottles of water. Since we took a guided tour this time, the next time around we'd probably opt for renting kayaks on our own and making our way to Secret Falls without a guide. We definitely want to do this again with our children when they are a little older (at least 5). However, for first timers we highly recommend Kayak Kauai with Jamie as your guide! P.S. I would not recommend this tour for children younger than 5. It is very rocky, muddy and wet with lots of tree roots on the trail and by the waterfall. We saw another tour group with young children and several of them were crying because they fell on their way down to the waterfall. One small boy fell and hit his head on a rock, poor thing. more

lorely81

This was a great combination of exercise and adventure. It was listed as easy/moderate which I would think would be appropriate fo...r slightly older, non-athletic people, but it included wading through muddy rivers with slippery rocks and hauling up a couple of steep and narrow muddy paths. I kept thinking I was glad I was with my fit husband instead of my healthy mom...she would never have made it. The description also mentioned something about "air conditioned vans will take you back to your car". This never happened...you hike and kayak all the way back. Again, I LOVED it and wouldn't have wanted it any other way...I just thought the advertisement was way off of what the actual experience entailed. more

Kirsten

This is an adventure that everyone must go on. Our tour guide was informative, patient and hilarious! Being a first time kayaker, ...he took the time to get me comfortable paddling before heading out. The hike was great and the waterfall was breathtaking! So many things to see along the way, all of which our guide pointed out. I would highly recommend this to everyone who visits the island. Thanks for the great memories. Be back soon! more

Kayaking was easy. Hike was nice and the waterfall gorgeous the water was cold. The lunch provided was yummy. The guide was kind i...nformative and patient. more

Had a great time with family raced back but we lost. Waterfall was pretty and lunch was filling. The guide was kind and informativ...e. more

Lis

While this is rated Easy to Moderate, when it has been raining, it is much more Moderate than Easy! The rain brings mud and many ...in our group were slipping and sliding quite a bit! It is still a lot of fun and well worth the Moderate journey. The kayaking is smooth and the hike is exciting enough while still being safe if you watch your step. Brian was our guide and he was very helpful and had great stories for us. The meal was OK, but you are not going on this journey for the food. The waterfall is a great site to relax and spend time with the chickens. It's Kauai, so of course there are chickens! Would highly recommend this and I plan to go again when I next visit the island! more

3Dean

Thank you so much! Had a great time! The guide Philip was great!

Brb

My boyfriend and I had a blast. It was so much fun!

Harriette

Had a great time with this activity. The kayaking was fun and leisurely; the hike a comfortable jaunt; the falls isolated and bea...utiful. Go early to reduce the number of visiting groups at the falls, and ask if you can have Jamie as your guide...he was really great. Not a tasking activity if the weather is moderate...if it's hot or wet, it could pose a different sort of adventure. more

Kevin

Such a wicked day which was enhanced by Lono and his approach to the group and how he chatted with us about all & sundry. He h...ad such a vast knowledge of the land which was an added bonus :) Would definitely recommend the tour. The whole experience was wicked!! more

Megs

We had a great time. The hiking was great, the waterfall was gorgeous, and the water was a great temperature. While reasonably e...xperienced kayakers, we had a little trouble keeping up with the rest of the kayakers on the upriver return, due to being older and out of shape. Dillon (our guide) did a great job of making this an enjoyable adventure. Due to a camera mishap, the pics he took of us and shared are the only ones we have of this adventure. Thanks, Dillon. more

Bruce Cariker

It was very fun and i had fun cuz it was fun. It seems kind of funny cuz it was so fun. Our kayak weighed a ton but it was still... fun. And we went hiking. the end more

The Sacred Falls Adventure was just perfect for my husband and me. The sites were beautiful! Our tour guide was informative about ...plants and birds on the way to the waterfall and made our adventure more special! more

A MUST-DO....be prepared for mud...it's a rainforest!

Really cool tour, our tour guide was very cool and made the whole experience so much fun! The trek up to the waterfall was quite f...un to hike because there was so much mud:) And the kayaking is also lots of fun, not too much of an exhaust ;) more

Fantastic! Jesse was a terrific guide The brows were outstanding!

Sharon

Beautiful, got some exercise, learned about the island and the things around us on the trip. Kelly was calm, knowledgeable, fun. H...ad a great time. You should do this. more

gracie

This was by far the best day of our week. The kids loved it! The kayak trip on the river was amazing, nice and relaxing, beauti...ful scenery. Advice- have one experienced kayak-er for the 2 person kayak. The hike through the forest was so cool, it was exactly what we had imagined. We were filled with history and information along our hike which was really inviting! Once we got to the falls, delightful! Although the water was cold, it was the neatest things we had experienced! The lunch, the surroundings, the tour guide, all amazing! Don't second guess, Just do it!!! more

Deb

This was an amazing experience. it was so pretty and the hike was fun. would do this again.

Nicole

There are some amazing views and creatures to see. The guide was awesome. We took two kids in the front of our Kayaks (which means... we did all the rowing) therefore the groups with 2 adults per boat went way ahead of us. Don’t sign up for group activities if you expect the world to evolve around you. The group we went with seemed to rush through everything and we were trying to enjoy the trip and views. more

Sharilynn

Due to the flooding on Kauai we couldn't do the full tour. The tour company called and asked if we wanted to still do just th...e kayak tour for a lower price, which we did. T our guide was great and we made the best of the modified tour. more

Christi F.

We enjoyed the kayaking and hiking both. The Scared Falls were well worth the hike. I recommend good water shoes for the hike. ...I did it in flip flops and it was a bit tricky! Jesse was our guide and he was great, very energetic and knowledgable. more

Tim and Christie

Our day for this adventure was sunny and warm. The ten of us were excited to get underway and see the secret waterfall hidden amon...gst the trees. The kayaks we were given were ocean kayaks and were very comfortable and easy to use. After a very muddy hike, the cool clean water of the pool by the beautiful waterfall was very much appreciated. The hike was much muddier than expected, and at times we were slogging through muddy puddles where we could not see our feet. It was dangerous at times. Perhaps a little more preparation for those participating would be beneficial. The guides are used to the conditions and may forget that us regular folk from snow country may not be as accustomed to mud and such. Our guide was well-versed in the natural plants, and even made us bracelets from the leaves of a tree. He was patient, and very knowledgeable. Lunch was good and nutritious, and we were all hungry by the time we got to the waterfall. We would do this trek again, but might check in first to see what the mud factor is! more

Reid Family

This was really a fun and beautiful experience. Jessie was our guide, and he did a wonderful job. We were late starting, but tha...t was because in the group prior to us he had a blind man and two elderly. It shows his patience that these three were able to complete this adventure. Let me state this is not for those who are not moderate to fit. The paddle can be tough if the wind is blowing (which it normally is). And the hike is beautiful (but can be muddy and you have to watch your step). We would highly recommend this trip for those up for the adventure. Again, Jessie is your man! It is beautiful, he is knowledgeable, and it was very fun! more

Mamick

This was a great adventure and our guide was very good! I do think one should be warned a little more of how muddy the trail to ...the falls is, but even with that it was beautiful and fun. I would recommend this to anyone younger and in decent shape...if you have bad knees or are excessively heavy you would be much more prone to injury on the hike. Overall experience was fabulous! more

Julia

Felt a bit rushed through the whole trip, our guid stopped once for pic before reaching the water fall, very nice experience and h...ad lots of fun more

Mohamed

it was fun paddeling up the Wailua river and hiking to the waterfall. Very good instructions and guided tour. The guide showed us ...a lot of things and explained to us. It was awesome to swim in the warerfall pool but also pretty cold! Great tour - I recommend it to everyone! more

Franziska

We enjoyed this trip so much but I caution that the hike is a lot more rugged than I expected. Lots of rocky terrain to navigate, ...wear good footwear that can get wet. more

Ruth

The kayaking part was nice, not too difficult. The hike was a nice hike, not quite a casual walk down a straight path but also not... too difficult. I enjoyed having our guide Jesse there to explain things to us as we hiked, he was a good guide. He got stuck talking to just one individual of our group a few times and it was hard to hear what he was saying sometimes. The waterfall was nice, there were a lot of boulders in the water so be careful! Lots of other people from other tours on the same path made it a bit crowded. more

Trevor

We had 3 athletic families attend this trip with adults and teens. The kayaking was BEAUTIFUL on the way 'in' to the hik...e (current and wind assisting). The hike itself was a bust and we all like to hike. Our guide left us to our own devices for most of this trip and was of little guidance. Even wading through the water to the hike our guide took us the more difficult route. We know this because on our return to the kayaks a couple of us followed a different guides route across the river which was so much simpler and safer! The hike was muddy and slippery despite having good water/hiking shoes. We had adults/kids fall many times and one significant injury. Others had already slipped in this location yet our guide offered no help or alternative. In early July, unfortunately the waterfall yielded little water. The hike not worth the end result. We did enjoy the 'work out' aspect of the kayak trip back. It was beautiful but challenging going against the current if you aren't a regular kayaker. At a minimum: I'd rate this a moderate adventure and challenging for individuals who aren't regularly very active. more

NorCal

I took this tour with my 8 year old and I wouldn't call this the highlight of our trip. I consider both of us in fairly good ...shape, and kayaking up Wailua was still quite challenging, especially with the wind. The tour guide seemed to be in a hurry so it added to the stress. The hiking part was quite difficult with rocks, roots, steep climbs and descents. Here again, our tour guide rushed through the forest, not even waiting for some of the slower group members. The "scrumptious" advertised lunch was awful - a stale deli sandwich and a pre-packaged cookie. The waterfall was the only redeeming moment of this tour. All in all, unless you're an adventurous young couple in good shape, I would not recommend this tour. more

Anonymous

The waterfall destination is spectacular, our guide, Web, was very good - and barefoot!. Well-fitting hiking or sturdy aqua shoes ...are a must for the average hiker. The kayak trip is easy in a wide river. The hike is often along narrow pathways along a dropoff area with no barriers. The ground is very muddy, uneven and you're stepping between roots of trees much of the time. Good foot placement, patience and balance are requirements. When we arrived at the falls, a thunderstorm dumped a lot of rain decreasing the time at the falls and created an extremely wet and muddy return trip on the path back to the kayaks. Puddle depths were unknown leading to many slips and falls and very slow and slippery going. While no one was hurt in our group of 12, I'd advise this trip only for the very adventurous, and very careful! more
