Secret falls was beautiful! We got really great weather and a great guide. The paddling was fairly easy too.
This tour was great! So much wonderful scenery and great info provided about the area from the tour guide.
We had a fantastic time at Alii kayaks! Beautiful river, very knowledgeable and fun guide ,who played the ukelele for us and showed where to cliff jump! Thanks Christian! !
Great tour w/live music and a chill dog. Highly recommend.
Had a great time. Our guide Justin was very entertaining. The kayaking, short hike and waterfall was perfect. There are quite a few people doing this outing with other companies so it gets a bit crowded at the waterfall. All in all Alii kayaks is a very proper, informative and safety conscious outfit.0
Our guide was awesome and knowledgeable. The falls were fantastic and the hike was fun. I did however notice (in the general loading area where we started our hike) a 12"high x 1" dia. rusty, ragged steel pipe in the ground where people could trip over. Somebody needs to remove it . Overall a 5 star outing!!!!
This was a nice tour with low impact kayaking. I thought current may be an issue since it was on a river, but it was easy kayaking in both directions. The guide did a great job of providing interesting information walking through the rainforest to the water falls. It isn't really a secret falls, other groups are there, but there is plenty of room and time to enjoy a swim in the pool under the falls. Close-toed sandals you are willing to get muddy is the best footwear option.
Worth it! Our guide, Kana, was SO knowledgeable and helpful for our tour. We loved the combination of kayaking, hiking and swimming. The sights were so worth it. We wish we were expecting such a long and muddy hike but it was totally doable. Enjoyed and recommend it!!
My husband and I really enjoyed our tour! I had never kayaked before, but I didn't do too badly. And getting to swim in the waterfall was amazing. I highly recommend it!
