Wailua River
4.48
The serene Wailua River flows down the east side of Kauai, past lush jungles and cascading waterfalls rushing from the wettest spot on earth, Mt. Waialeale. A paradise for kayakers, with relatively calm water and plenty to see along the way, the Wailua River attracts leisure travelers and adventurers alike.
Pro Tips
  • - Bring bug spray. The Wailua River winds through heavily forested areas in one of the wettest places on earth, but a quick spray before departure will make for a much more enjoyable trip.
  • - Some tours will also let you dock your kayak and embark on a hike to secret waterfalls tucked back into the rainforest.
