Nice, but not a must do activity on Big Island

We took a 3-hour 'de luxe' ATV ride. Guide Keli'i is entertaining and very friendly, and the ride itself (which is not very tough) is quite scenic, but let's face it, the most... read more

We took a 3-hour 'de luxe' ATV ride. Guide Keli'i is entertaining and very friendly, and the ride itself (which is not very tough) is quite scenic, but let's face it, the most spectacular views on Big Island are from the air (helicopter tours), or from heights (Mauni Kea), so this is more for the fun of riding an ATV...

My partner and I did the Deluxe Ocean & Waterfall Adventure Tour with JC and Travis on October 27, 2014. My partner rode his own ATV and I did the passenger tour. I kind of regret not having my own ATV because it looked like a lot of fun! The tour started with about 20 min of equipment fitting, safety... More

We went on the morning waterfall ride and had a great time. The guides and equipment were good. The ride went thru a variety of terraine from grassland to forest with some great views and waterfalls. I don't understand the negative reviews. If you don't want to get dirty an ATV ride is not for you . I would highly... More

I read the negative responses before booking our experience. We do a lot of off-road adventures, and have done some ATV rides where we found ourselves ready to turn over. That would NOT happen under ATV Outfitters ' watch. Derrell and JC were very safety aware and assured the group had an excellent time while making certain we all returned... More

These people take your safety seriously. They really watch during the trial runs before sending people out on the ATVs. I have a lot of experience, but, there was another woman on my tour that they asked to please ride along with the guide. I was impressed that they did that, it's no fun for anyone if someone gets hurt!... More

We had an absolutely awesome ATV trip. Great equipment, personable tour guides. We spent time up front practicing on a course to make sure everyone was prepared for the 22 miles, 3 hour deluxe ride. They took pictures of us along the way. Stopped at some beautiful landscape, ocean and waterfall sites. Checked everyone along the way to make sure... More

I would personally like to thank everyone at ATV Outfitters for our amazing adventures with you. We took the Deluxe Adventure Ride on 9/29/2014 which just happened to be my birthday. Our guide, Keli'i was absolutely wonderful. We had a private tour with him and everything was simply amazing. The tour and sights were beyond anything I had imagined. So... More

Riding the Kayaks down the irrigation ditch is an experience not to be missed. You float trough many long tunnels and some beautiful scenery. Well worth the drive out to their place of business.

We had a great time with Darryl Kapeliela and Kelii Paaoao. There were 6 in our group and these 2 guides did a fantastic job on the history and the surroundings.
