Kayaked a mile and a half on the Wailua River, then hiked another mile on a muddy, slippery trail to then finally reach the Secret Falls. Mind you, this was only one-way. It was fulfilling, after the fact that is was exhausting!
We booked with Wailua Kayak Adventures to guide us through the river and to the waterfall. Great staff, equipped and inexpensive. Plus, this company takes only a handful of people at a time, that way it's not too brimming. Our guide was Juda. Since Atis and I were rowing right next to him, he'd tell us all the great places to eat, shop and sightsee on Kauai. From time to time, he'd also give us a history lesson about Kauai. Perks of being one of the stragglers in the group hahaha!
I've kayaked once in my life before kayaking the Wailua River, and it wasn't bad. With that in mind, booked this kayaking activity thinking it'd be the same experience. I was surely mistaken. Within ten minutes, I was worn out! And we probably had an hour left to go. Luckily, Atis was able to pick up my slack kekeke.
After kayaking, we all hiked up muddy terrain. I was wearing water shoes that the mud kept trying to take from me, literally! Sucking it off my feet! It's as if Pokémon Grimer and Muk were existent and messed with you along the way.
Finally, we reached the 136-foot Secret Waterfalls. After all the slipping and sliding on the mud, and constantly trying to avoid falling on my face, it was comforting to see the waterfall and to greet us at the end. 'Twas definitely an adventure, one I'd go on again, having more insight kekeke.
