Kauai Kayak River Tour in Hawaii

If you're heading off for a cruise to Hawaii, and you're checking out your shore excursion options, there are all sorts of things to see and do on the islands. If you've always wanted to try kayaking, here's a tour that takes you up a river and through the rainforest to a hidden waterfall.

Kauai Kayak River Tour

Paddle two miles up the north fork of Wailua River to a trailhead where we begin a ¾ mile hike through the rainforest to a 125 foot waterfall."

The excursion has lunch at the waterfall before heading back downriver.

If you've never kayaked before, this sounds like a good trip for beginners: "Now if you are thinking of 'river kayaking,' white water and rapids, on a scale from 1-5 Wailua River is a '0.' So it is a nice calm way to get out on the river and enjoy kayaking and hiking to a secret waterfall."

Available through your cruise or from Aloha Tours (you can often get better rates if you book independently from the cruise ship, though you'll be responsible for finding transportation to the take-out spot).

This kayak trip was one of the greatest adventures I experienced in Hawaii. I definitely must note this is a must do!
