A Few Words from Our Guests
“Amazing Adventure on the Wailua River”
Alii Kayaks has to be one of the best kayaking experiences on the Wailua River. We had a great time kayaking and hiking through the beautiful scenery to the waterfall. What a fun adventure! We found we were provided everything we needed for our comfort including waterproof bags and life jackets. We were impressed with our guide, Bryceson, who really enriched our experience with interesting facts and playing the Ukulelehe. He was super friendly and took great care of all 11 of us, including providing each of us with our very own walking stick, which was super helpful on the muddy trail. Highly recommended.

“Highlight of our visit”
Our family had a great experience kayaking on the Wailua river and hiking to the falls! The price was very reasonable, and the base office was easy to find. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable, and we enjoyed every moment of the trip, even the mud on the hike. I would definitely recommend this adventure!

“Awesome guide, great equipment, amazing scenery”
Dantes(sp?) was a fantastic guide! Knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and just fun to be around. The kayaks and other equipment were all excellent. The adventure up the river and to the waterfall was unforgettable. My husband and I went with our 4 sons ages 7 to 14 and we all loved every second!

Back in 1946, Walter Smith, Sr., and his wife Emily, laid the foundation by establishing Smith’s Motorboat Service on the picturesque Wailua River. They were the trailblazers, introducing river boat tours to the renowned Fern Grotto. Fast forward through four generations, and today, Kaleo Smith proudly continues this enduring family tradition. With a passion for Kauai and a dedication to preserving its cultural heritage, Alii Kayaks ensures the spirit of the Smith family’s love for the island lives on.
