Beautiful Waterfall Hike and Swim

Our group of ten had an incredible time with our guide, Taro! He was very knowledgeable and accommodating to what we all needed. The hike was amazingly gorgeous and the lunch spot was even better! Well worth the money and we all highly recommend this trip!

Beautiful hike!
Beautiful hike to many small waterfalls. Our guide, Mark, is a native Hawaiian and could tell us history and about the native and invasive plants. We sampled wild-growing fruit, swam below a waterfall and had lunch while enjoying a spectacular view.
