Outfitters Kauai - Hidden Valley Falls Kayak Adventure
This enchanting half-day Kauai adventure is perfect for kayakers of all ages and abilities. Enjoy a 2-mile downwind paddle on the gentle Hule'ia River through the Hule'ia National Wildlife Refuge, a place for the preservation of endangered Hawaiian water birds. Hule’ia is also known as a filming location for a wide range of major motion pictures, including Jurassic Park, Lost World and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
This adventure also includes a 1.5-mile roundtrip nature walk through a fern-covered valley to a series of 3 pool-drop waterfalls with a swimming hole known as Hidden Falls. Along the way you’ll also enjoy views of the magnificent Haupu Mountain Range, a dramatic and majestic 2000-foot shield volcano that looms over the river. The area is steeped in legend, and your tour guide will tell you exciting stories about the supernatural inhabitants of the valley in days gone by.
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. This tour is easy-going fun and excitement for everyone without a whole lot of work.
