The Kayaking: This is an easy going delightful downwind paddle which is about 2 miles. You'll use a two-person, open-cockpit type kayak, which is very stable and easy to get in. Kayak through the Hule'ia Natational Wildlife Refuge, which is a place for the preservation of endangered Hawaiian birds.
You will pass the Alekoko Fishpond, which is an example of the ancient Hawaiian’s fishing and aquiculture methods that's still used today. In the background of this Hawaian tour is the Haupu Mountain Range, a dramatic and majestic 2000-foot shield volcano that towers over the river. Huliea has been the site of several movies, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, and its sequel Lost World.
The Wagon Ride with Outfitters Kauai: Ride on benches in a custom covered farm wagon. It's a journey that will take you back in time on a narrated hayride across Kipu Ranch, a 4000-acre working cattle ranch! Bound for waterfalls, you'll be spotting wild boar, peacocks and pheasant as you journey through this Ranch.
Kauai Zipping (Optional): Three thrilling 800-foot ziplines over waterfalls and rainforests. State-of-the-art equipment make for a 100% safe "extreme" experience. If you decide not zip line, you can jump on the wagon to the hiking trailheads.
Hiking: On the Kipu Ranch Adventures tour, you'll hike on three different jungle trails, which takes you to hidden waterfalls and swimming holes. Each of the Kauai hiking tours are conducted as a nature walk, through tropical rain forests which consists of different plants, birds, and aquatic life.
As you enjoy this Kauai activity, you'll be stopping for dives into beautiful pool-drop waterfalls cascading over black lava rock cliffs, swings on ropes tied to tree branches high over the mountain pools, while hiking through the fern forests of this Hawaiian Island.
Canoe Ride: While on the downriver return trip, you can kick back and soak up the sun and scenery on Outfitters Kauai big, double-hulled Hawaiian Canoe.
