KAUAI KAYAK TOUR
Hidden Valley Falls and Hule’ia River
Paddle. Explore. Cruise.
This enchanting half-day Kauai adventure package is perfect for kayakers of all ages and abilities. Take a two mile downwind paddle tour on the gentle Hule‘ia River through the beautiful solitude of the surrounding National Wildlife Refuge. Hule’ia is best known as the site for filming a wide range of major motion pictures including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Lost World. Hike lush jungle trails through a fern-covered valley to the secluded pools and waterfalls. Finish your adventure with a relaxing ride back on a motorized canoe through this treasured area, which is listed on the National Register of Historic places. Easygoing fun and excitement for everyone without a whole lot of work.
Food & Drink:
This tour includes a great lunch. Your choice is either a turkey or veggie (roasted bell peppers) del-style sandwich with provolone cheese and a build-your-own buffet of condiments such of lettuce, onions, jalapenos, sprouts, tomato, onion, and black olives, along with mayo and mustard. Make it just the way you like it… served with fresh garden vegetable pasta salad and a delicious fresh-baked brownie. Cold bottled water and Hawaiian Sun fruit drinks are available throughout the day.
What to wear and bring:
We recommend you bring a swimsuit, shorts, t shirt, windbreaker or light rain coat, and footwear with aggressive tread for muddy conditions.
