7.5 Hours
Tour Times
Best Of Hawaii

Hug Maui’s rugged coastline as you kayak in the calm morning ocean. Snorkel off your kayak among colorful fish, coral, and inquisitive sea turtles. Then hike our trails on the “Short Waterfalls Walk,” where you’ll have an opportunity to swim in and jump from two waterfalls. It’s a memorable day packed with activities to stimulate your senses.

Do it all – ocean kayak and snorkel, waterfalls, and rainforests – in one 7.5 hour trip. On the ocean: 2.5 hours kayaking along South Maui’s dramatic lava-covered landscape. Snorkel with Hawaii’s large green sea turtles. After kayaking, we drive from ocean to rainforest for the “Short” hike. Hike one mile roundtrip to two waterfalls and pools where you can swim and jump from safe rock ledges. Hike Maui’s kayak/snorkel partner is Kelii’s Kayaks. Nutritious lunch and snacks included.

Shoes to Wear on our Tours

  • For the waterfall / rainforest hikes: Running shoes or sports sandals (like Tevas, Chacos or Keens).
  • For the Four-mile Crater Hike: Running shoes are perfectly suitable. There’s no need to bring hiking boots unless you want to (they do take up a lot of suitcase space).
  • Your shoes may get muddy, dirty, and/or wet on any of our hikes.

Clothing for our Tours

  • For the waterfall / rainforest hikes: Shorts and short-sleeved shirts or t-shirts are best. If mosquitoes really bother you (your guide carries repellent), you could wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. Also, you’ll want to wear your swimsuit so you can swim in the waterfall pools (optional).
  • For the Four-mile Crater Hike: The weather is often cool or cold (the altitude is 10,000 feet); then it can warm up as you hike. So layered clothing is best, including a jacket, down vest, sweatshirt, or sweater. You guide will also carry extra jackets.

Additional Items to Bring for the Day

  • Towel: Waterfall trips include swimming (optional)
  • Sunscreen: Helpful on any tour, but essential on the Haleakala Crater trip
  • Camera & Phone: Please bring a Ziploc or a plastic bag to prevent any damage from moisture
  • You are responsible for any personal equipment you choose to bring along
