Maui: 5-Hour Waterfall & Rainforest Hike with Picnic Lunch
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 5 hours
This was absolutely fantastic for our family of 5! We were with another family of 5 (kids ages 17, 15, 12, 9-all girls!) It was a beautiful hike through the rainforest learning about the history of land, plants and animals. The waterfalls were spectacular! We got to jump from the cliffs/rocks and swim under the waterfalls. Beautiful swimming holes/lagoons and our guide, Gail, was SUPERB. By far the best guide out there! So knowledgeable, outgoing and super positive! Our 12 yr old was afraid to jump off of one of the cliffs and she held her hand and jumped with her! Food was simple but great, hike was great crossing over streams and through a small cave with water up to your thighs, through the trees and over river rocks! (note: not easy for elders in some places). I highly recommend this super fun experience with friends and/or family!!! A great way to see Maui!
Exceptional tour with our guide Sarah. She was knowledgeable and helpful throughout the tour. She prepared us for everything we would see and experience, so nothing caught us off guard which was appreciated in an unknown area. We learned of many of the plants and wildlife that lived in the rainforest and waterfall areas which was a definite bonus. There were some more strenuous parts of the hike involving steep rocks and slippery surfaces, but with Sarah's guidance and the support of the rest of our hiking "ohana", we made it without issue. Definitely would recommend this experience to anyone and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Definitely a more challenging hike than I anticipated, but the guide was excellent and encouraging and really made me comfortable even thought I had never attempted to cross streams or climb up rocks before. Be prepared to get wet, but also to have a fantastic time and learn a ton. My guide Sarah N. was extremely knowledgeable about the plant life and its cultural significance to Hawaii, and really made this a special and educational experience. Highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Maui, and I would 100% do it again!
just got done with our hiking tour and it was great! Nick, our guide was awesome, very nice and welcoming since the moment he picked us up. The hike was beautiful so glad we chose the longer 5 hour tour, we were able to see and swim in several water fall areas. we booked at the last minute and were not prepared but your feet/shoes will get wet and muddy as walking through the rainforest. They provided ponchos for rain, backpacks and plenty of water which was great!! Thanks Nick and Hike Maui.
This was the funnest activity we did. The hike was challenging but our guide, Sarah N, was amazing. She made sure everyone was safe while encouraging us to have fun and take advantage of the experience, Her instructions on how to cross the waters and where to jump off the waterfall was helpful. We learned a lot about the islands while we were riding in the van and hiking along the trails. Great experience. Wonderful guide! Thank you Sarah N for a great day.
