Kohala Waterfalls Small Group Adventure Tour
From US$195.00
Low Price Guarantee
See the highlights of Kohala in a day on this small-group adventure tour. Cruise along the cliffs and over rugged landscape in an ATV, reaching the Kohala Mule Station to enjoy the sweeping views. Visit a historic sugar plantation, and hike along tunnels and aqueducts to the seven Kohala waterfalls, cooling off with a dip at the final one. A picnic lunch and hotel transport are included for a hassle-free experience.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with an early morning pickup at your Kona, Waikoloa, or Kohala Beach hotel. Drive up the coastline to old Kohala Mule Station, looking for marine life such as dolphins and humpback whales.
You reach your next adventure via sturdy military ATV for a brief, bumpy off-road ride along the cliffs to the Kohala Ditch Trail to a 100-year-old sugar plantation.
Hike approximately 2 miles (3 kilometers) on a trail built in the early 1900s to irrigate the plantation. Pass by tunnels, ditches, and an old aqueduct while your guide shares the history of the plantation.
Make a stop for a picnic lunch (included). Then, hike past the seven Kohala waterfalls, stopping at the last fall for a chance to jump in the refreshing pool and cool off under the cascade.
After the hike, the tour ends with a ride back to your hotel.

No. And you probably wouldn't know you were on a sugar plantation if you weren't told.

I didn't get an individual ATV. My tour guide drove a 1970s military jeep to get to the hills.

I doubt they have an age limit. If you have any concerns definitely give them a call. And they will pick you up. Sweet van too!
