Kauai Kayaking Excursion Reviews

Kayaking in Kauai is a great way for the adventurous traveler to see the island.

Best excursion of the trip. Highly recommend. Waterfall was great. You get to climb a ledge and go under and "behind" the falls after a great rainforest hike. Kayak was about 2.5 miles long up a river. Great fun. I would definitely do this again. Read Less

I believe this tour was called hidden valley kayak.
I believe this tour was called hidden valley kayak. It started with an easy, downstream 4.5 mile paddle and then went into a 1 mile leasurely walk through the forest. It was very relaxing and enjoyable.

This was ok.
This was ok. Too short for the money. Only kayaked 2 miles. Hiked a bit and then we were done. Should’ve chosen something else.

Never kayaked before.
Never kayaked before. It is down river so can float for awhile if arms get tired. Also included was a hike to a waterfall and lunch. You will get wet and shoes muddy. Totally enjoyed it. If a senior, should be in reasonably good shape. ... Read More

Very enjoyable.
Very enjoyable. Obviously, cruising with the river current, and with wind at our back it made for an easier experience. We had no problem keeping up but one should be in reasonable shape to do this....because after the kayak is a ... Read More
Very enjoyable. Obviously, cruising with the river current, and with wind at our back it made for an easier experience. We had no problem keeping up but one should be in reasonable shape to do this....because after the kayak is a beautiful but not-easy walk down a natural path to a waterfall. What goes down must go up. After viewing the waterfall and spending time in the natural pool, it's time to walk back up. The path is narrow and has some difficult footing, often slippery and uneven terrain. Read Less

Too much heat and humidity for me.
Too much heat and humidity for me. I did not finish the excursion but my sisters did. They were exhausted after 5 hours in the heat but had a good time. I would say this is for those under 50 years of age.

We kayaked for about 2 miles and then were told we had to hike through the forest to the waterfall. This would've been ok if we had had our own rucksacks but they gave us a waterproof rucksack with our lunch in and whatever belongings we wanted to take. There were two of us in our party so we put out thins in not realising we had to carry it. If I had known we had to carry it I would've put our rucksacks I the waterproof bag and left the waterproof bag at the kayak and hiked with our own bags. The waterproof bag was so heavy and I had a back injury. The lunch that was provided was pathetic. A turkey and cress wrap which tasted disgusting. Pasta with olives and capers which I also didn't like. I saw that out lunch bag had two bottles of water and two cans of soda which is obviously what made our bag so damn heavy! When we were at the falls I looked around and people on other tours had a much nicer lunch than us. Our tour guide gave us no information whatsoever. We didn't even know how long the kayak or hike was going to be. He didn't offer any information fromthesecknd we got in the van to the second he dropped us off. Disappointing all round really.

It was a great experience for us on both days! We enjoyed the kayaking and the tour group really looked after everyone and made it very enjoyable. Lots of bug bites but other than that loved it.

It will say water shoes recommended.
It will say water shoes recommended. Should be required. And they will need to be pretty sturdy.

Nice scenery along the river and trip to the waterfall.
Nice scenery along the river and trip to the waterfall. Keep in mind, this is not a leisurely kayak trip to look at scenery. Was very active tour.
