Fairly easy 2mi kayak and about a 1mi hike through the jungle to a beautiful waterfall. About 10% of the hike is pretty challenging especially when raining and slippery from mud. Bring shoes you don't mind getting wet. Jordan, our guide, was great at keeping the group together and shared some stories along the way about the trail, and some of the wildlife and plants. I highly recommend this trip.

We really enjoyed our adventure but we think the company needs to do better to either have more staff helpers or check that every person will be able to handle the slippery hiking. My hubby ended up working to assist a lady who needed help. We also recommend the company website add a video of the conditions and list walking poles in the list of what to bring.

Our guide, Christian, was fantastic. Had a ton of knowledge about Hawaii and Kauai, and even brought his ukulele to play music as we hiked!! Beautiful and easy river to Kayak on, and the hike to the waterfall was fairly easy, even us non-hikers. Getting to swim under the waterfall was amazing, but chilly! Gives you a nice rush of adrenaline. If you're looking for something to do for a few hours, do this. I would recommend doing the morning session. It's early, but worth it as there isn't anyone on the river going to the hiking portion.
