Paddle down the Wailua River, a beautiful and historic jungle stream, deep into the heart of the island on a kayaking Kauai day trip. This Kauai hiking tour takes you through lush jungle on a hike up the valley to a 100-foot (30 meter) waterfall, swimming in the pool below and enjoying a delicious picnic lunch. Delight in the native and exotic botanical wonders in a fantasy world of Hawaiian jungle scenery!
Paddle deep into the heart of the island on this kayaking Kauai adventure, all the way to the shadow of Mt Wai'ale'ale. After an easy paddle upstream, you'll tie your kayaks to a tree and take a somewhat rugged and very beautiful 1 mile (1.6km) hike to a dramatic 100' (30 meter) waterfall. Sit on some big basalt boulders at the bottom of the pool and savor a delicious picnic lunch while enjoying the stunning scenery that surrounds you. Then, hike back down to the ruddered tandem open cockpit kayaks for some more fun paddling!

As you pass through this spectacular and interesting valley by kayak and on foot, your guide will be sharing the mana'o (knowledge) of the island. You'll be filled in on the history of ancient Kauai and how the Ali'i (royalty) and Maka'ainana (common people) lived and played here long ago. You'll learn about the unique and unusual medicinal and food plants that inhabit Kauai's Wailua River Valley, as well as identifying many beautiful ornamental plants, both native and introduced. All this will take place as you get to know each other and have some laughs in this incredible setting.

The return part of this kayaking Kauai tour is downstream, but into the trade winds, giving you a bit of a workout on this leg of the journey. If you don't mind a bit of exercise, this tour will be the one for you! With swimming holes and native exotic botanical wonders, the Wailua truly is a fantasy world of Hawaiian deep jungle scenery.

Fun day!!

Reviewed by: Mike D, January 2011

We were picked up at our Hotel by our guide Kevin. He had lunches and extra drinks packed in waterproof bags as advertised. THe trip was great! Kayak trip was about 2 miles, very pleasant. The hike to waterfall was only a couple of miles as well. Kevin was very knowledgeable about local flora and history. Waterfall was gorgeous. Trip out was great too. We did not need our bug spray, Overall trip rating 5 stars!
