Hilo-Hamakua Heritage Coast
Valleys and Waterfalls Beautiful Akaka Falls

Our Valleys and Waterfalls tour showcases our amazing Hamakua Heritage Coastal region with its diverse scenery from 400ft waterfalls to its bridges crossing deep cleft valleys each with entirely different vegetation patterns in wild variety. This tour is designed to take advantage of both seasonal and daily weather changes as well as varying passenger loads from one to a van full, and may take smaller numbers for an intense look at the beauty within 14 miles of Hilo including the Scenic Route and Akaka Falls...or for larger numbers, a long ranging tour as far as Waipio Valley. We will honor even one reservation by running the tour with no minimum number for a shorter duration and more intense enjoyment of the area as far as Akaka Falls,.for larger numbers we may take in more of the coast. In this way we can serve those who choose not to rent a car or those who realize that they will see more and learn more in a guided tour. During seasonal heavy rainfall, waterfalls within a few miles of Hilo become spectacular cascades and the tour may morph into seeing those falls then getting you out of the rainfall or even to the other side of the Island. There is no set route nor list of sites as each tour is as different as the guides who lead it, some with stories of family growing up in the villages you will pass through .

*The tour does do a store stop where you are able to pick up breakfast, lunch, snacks and liquids.

BRING: Covered footwear, swim wear, sunscreen, water, towel, light jacket and snorkeling gear if snorkeling is desired.

* * The above tour description is a generalization of average activities, the actual tour may change in response to weather, seasons, daylight and guide preferances. This tour may be shortened or lengthened in response to passenger numbers as we attempt to accomodate even small number tours. There is so much to see within 20 miles of Hilo that content compensates for distance. No specific attractions are implied and no refunds will be given.

Reservations, to be confirmed must be guaranteed by credit card or advance payment. 48 hours notice of cancellation is required and you may be charged if an otherwise full seat is left empty because we turned others away.
