Kayak Kauai offers kayak rentals, kayak tours (including many out in the ocean and the Wailua River Sacred Falls Tour which includes kayaking down the Wailua River), and camping and hiking tours. It’s the perfect place to schedule a tour if you’re an adventure lover visiting the beautiful island of Kauai!

During my trip to Kauai, I definitely had to check out the Wailua River Sacred Falls Tour with Kayak Kauai. On a normal tour, this is a five-hour guided adventure that starts with kayaking down the Wailua River and ends with a fun, moderate to challenging hike to Sacred Falls. There’s a quippy, knowledgeable guide, a packed lunch, and all the adventure you could ask for in this gorgeous jungle-like backdrop. Unfortunately, when we visited for our early-morning adventure, the water level was too high for us to safely hike across the river (as it had rained the night before), so the hiking portion of our tour was cancelled. While we would have loved to have done the hike, we appreciate the team having our safety in mind first and foremost!

You know, we didn’t mind the cancellation at all. We still had a nice 4-mile kayak session down the Wailua River and back with Dustin, our personable and knowledgeable guide. The pace of our hike was relatively laid back, and as two people who don’t kayak frequently, we could absolutely handle ourselves the full four miles without much issue. Dustin pointed out the filming locations that have been used around the Wailua River. In fact, it is regularly seen on the big screen in place of the Amazon River since it really can look like it, but it’s also, of course, much safer than the Amazon. This kayak adventure really was one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever seen with lush greenery all around. Dustin was fun, funny, and really made out experience fantastic. We didn’t seem to miss the hike much, as we still had a great time and got to enjoy some delicious pineapple once we got back. We can’t wait to make it back out in the future to get the full tour experience out to Sacred Falls soon.

But if you love kayaking and hikes, definitely check out Kayak Kauai!
