Dave’s is a great guide. He is very knowledgeable and personable. The trail to Secret Falls was closed due to the flooding, but the kayak trip was beautiful.

A nice combination of kayaking, hiking and swimming, this tour easily fills a half day on Kauai. Our guide, Thomas, was friendly, knowledgeable, and oversaw our group for safety the whole time. This does require a certain level of physicality and the hiking portion requires...More
