Sail Away

Posted on: 2014/01/06

This tour had two main components. The first was the actual experience of sailing on the ocean. This was fantastic! Most of us loved the waves and wind, while a couple not so much. The crew were attentive and kind to our seasick companions. We listened to our competent crew tell stories, and share their knowledge. Lunch was outstanding. Fresh salads, make your own sandwich, and homemade cookies for dessert.
The second part is seeing the Na Pali shoreline, which we were unable to do so due to the great swells in the North. Despite this, it was still a neat experience to see the same areas on the South shore that we had visited by land. We were able to see whales.
Snorkeling was not the best I have done, but we did have a sea turtle swim under us. We had to stop in an area that was not the usual, due to the windy weather, and this may have been a factor.
Overall, this was a very good experience with a competent crew, enjoyable scenery and good food.

Reids were 'Reid-y' for anything!

Posted on: 2014/01/06

Our day for this adventure was sunny and warm. The ten of us were excited to get underway and see the secret waterfall hidden amongst the trees.
The kayaks we were given were ocean kayaks and were very comfortable and easy to use.
After a very muddy hike, the cool clean water of the pool by the beautiful waterfall was very much appreciated. The hike was much muddier than expected, and at times we were slogging through muddy puddles where we could not see our feet. It was dangerous at times. Perhaps a little more preparation for those participating would be beneficial. The guides are used to the conditions and may forget that us regular folk from snow country may not be as accustomed to mud and such.

Our guide was well-versed in the natural plants, and even made us bracelets from the leaves of a tree. He was patient, and very knowledgeable.
Lunch was good and nutritious, and we were all hungry by the time we got to the waterfall.
We would do this trek again, but might check in first to see what the mud factor is!
