On this 2 mile (3.2km) kayaking Kauai adventure, you'll travel through the Hule'ia National Wildlife Refuge, a place for the preservation of endangered Hawaiian water birds. You'll paddle past the living archaeological site of Alekoko (Menehune) Fishpond, and get a taste of the ancient people's fishing and aquaculture methods that are still utilized today. The backdrop is the magnificent Haupu Mountain Range, a dramatic and majestic 2000' (600 meter) shield volcano that looms over the river. The destination is a series of 3 pool-drop waterfalls with a swimming hole known as Hidden Falls.
The area is steeped in legend and your guides will tell you exciting stories about the supernatural inhabitants who resided in the valley long ago. Hule'ia has been the site of filming for a wide range of major motion pictures including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and its sequel, Lost World.
You'll leave your kayaks behind and set out on a 1.5 mile (2.4km) round trip guided Kauai hiking nature walk through a pristine tropical rain forest containing many different communities of plants, birds and aquatic life. You'll stop along the way at swimming holes with rope swings before reaching Hidden Valley Falls, a captivating series of pool-drop waterfalls cascading over black lava rock. Here you'll have some snacks and cold drinks while enjoying the scenery before heading back down to the river for a fun trip back in a double-hulled powered canoe. It's cheating, but who cares?
Restrictions: You must be able to walk 1.5 miles (2.4km) & kayak 60-90 minutes.
