This was a terrific adventure! The only thing I thought could have been better is if our guide would have had us introduce ourselves. Other than that, he was fun, friendly and knowledgeable. He and the adventure were certainly a highlight of our Kauai vacation!

Hats off to Austin! We had a great time. The whole experience is well worth it. The trip is perfect. You get experience on the kayak, hiking the trail and the finish is a magical waterfall.

The trip is great! Short (2 mile) kayak trip, a short hike, and then the trip home. Beautiful through and through. Thomas was our guide and did an exceptional job. He gave us great Kauai and Hawaii facts throughout the journey; and prepared a beautiful lunch- ringed with wildflowers he collected along the way.

Sound's like you had an adventure! Don't forget not everyone is able to pull it off with bad knees or any type of surgery. Especially being that the conditions on the trail can change at any time and become very muddy, slippery and slick. Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience. Have an amazing day and god... More

Our guide, Nathan was friendly and very accommodating for those in our group that found it difficult to keep up. My husband and I enjoyed the views during the kayak and hike. Would definitely recommend it!

A little too treacherous terrain for an old person, I actually slipped, skinned both knees and jarred my finger. It had rained the day before, so slippery.
