Secret Falls Tour

Paddle the majestic Wailua River, original home to the first Hawaiians who came from the Marquesas Islands to Kauai almost 1500 years ago. Hear the legends and learn about the flora and fauna of Kauai’s most sacred area. After paddling past numerous Heiau (sacred shrines), view ancient Kamokila Village, the sight made famous in the jungle scene of the film Outbreak. Heading up the north fork of the River, paddle leisurely through one of Kauai’s most beautiful jungle rivers until you come to the trailhead for the hike to enchanting Secret Falls, an 80-foot fall that descends into a refreshing swimming hole. Enjoy a picnic lunch and beverages and a cool dip before heading back down river. Enjoy the Wailua with the safety and expertise of Kauai Guides.
