The trail was muddy and slick in places but the previous nights rain def played a factor, however a slightly challenging hike. It was a phenomenal total experience that I would recommend to any visitor who enjoys the... More

This was a great trip, our guide, Matt, was very informative, laid back, and it was very apparent that he really enjoys his job. He handled a stressful situation with a sense of urgency but kept everyone calm.

Kayak adventures treated us well and showed us a great time. Always wanted to swim under a waterfall and finally got to. First getting to kayak up the river 2 miles a great hike then reaching the waterfall. I was with my mother who's 72 and myself 50 and had no problem keeping up on this trip

A two mile kayak trip and then a 1 mile hike on flat terrain to get to 125 ft. waterfall was worth it all! Was one of the things I wanted to do on Kauai and glad I did.

Dave was an exceptional guide who gave us good instruction on kayaking, had walking sticks waiting for us (very helpful because the trail is rocky & it would have been very challenging if it had been muddy!) and shared his knowledge as we hiked to the falls.
