Three out of five people had fun. Our super-guide, Terry, tossed some kayaks in the river, said, 'Hop in...uhhh, do you guys know how to swim?...uhhh, okay.' and we were off. We paddle a mile or two up the river, hiked a mile or so to a waterfall. Stayed there and swam round in it for a little while, then headed on back. Two folks in our group were a bit PO'd because there was no instruction or guidance, I enjoyed this excursion because it wasn't so 'guided'.

while in Hanalei, go to the community center in Hanalei, to hear a Hawaiian Slack key Concert. Sandy & Doug McMaster are the m/c-preformers of the concert. Great fun and oh so nice to listen to. I have several of their CD's and we play then while we go to sleep.
The Oh-so-secret-falls off the Wailua River

Downtown Kapa'a had alot of little restaurants and shops. Its about two or three blocks long and you can find tons of places to eat here. Its very convenient if you are staying around here.
