We drove northward from Waikoloa along Hwy 19 to junction 250 then took 250 north to the quaint little Hawaiian town of Hawi (great shops here for browsing as well as a coffee/pastry/ice cream shop). If you continue along 270 you will come to Pololu Valley Lookout, a scenic view of the ocean. From Hawi take 250 south to Waimea... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip! As soon as we entered, the staff was so accommodating and tried to settle my nerves. They had some free storage so we could leave our keys and things behind. They are very focused on safety and I never once felt like I was in any danger. They had a "lesson"... More

Ewokian adventure high in the trees for two hours with expert guides, this is it. Our guides, Anthony and Dave, were terrific and thorough in preparing us for some pretty awesome zipping! I especially loved the bits of local history that they shared. The forest had been previously cleared by native Hawaiians but you would never have guessed it as... More

We were excited to try it out and we were told the time from start to finish would be approx. 4 hours. We were greeted by friendly staff and introduced to our guides Ezra and Jessica. Our guides were great in explaining what... More
