Tour Description:
Kipu Ranch Adventures Waterfall Triple Trail Expedition holds nothing back. Here you’ll find well-maintained top of the line ultra-smooth suspension vehicles. Capping this tour at a maximum of 8 vehicles for less of a crowd, and at nearly double the mileage of our signature tours in just 3 hours; we look forward to showing you top quality adventure touring at its finest. A well thought out and crafted route is where great expeditions begin; we have mapped out just that. Traversing the best open view, mountain, and jungle sections of all three of our trail systems combined into one epic trip.

Experience first-class tropical 4×4 off-road adventure aboard our “top shelf” Kawasaki TERYX KRX 1000, our well maintained Kawasaki TERYX4 , or our Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT with room for the whole family.

Our experienced guides will lead you through our expansive 3,000-acre trail system on a working cattle ranch, which is full of breathtaking scenery, blockbuster movie hits, cultural history, and Hawaiian legends. You will navigate your own vehicle throughout the different trails and obstacles to our private waterfall, bamboo jungles, and much more! All vehicle features and terrain obstacles are exciting enough to challenge and thrill beginners to intermediate levels of off-road enthusiasts. Spend a few hours with us and see why we’ve been recognized as “Best Tour Company in Hawaii” by USA Today.

This is also a swimming tour, so be sure to pack towels and a swimsuit. We provide helmets, goggles, and bandanas as well as a light snack. Bring a swimsuit, towel, and water shoes if you want to swim. We recommend reef-safe sunscreen and natural locally made insect repellent as well.

Please note: Waterfalls and stream conditions are subject to the weather. Heavy rains can make swimming unsafe and droughts reduce water flow considerably.

You will not regret it. Do it!
Total blast! Kai and Ryan were great guides-took our safety seriously, but made it really fun. Also, they love sharing about their Hawaiian heritage and history which made the trip even better. I wasn't sure I wanted to do an ATV trip at first, but would do it again in a heartbeat. Plus, we were graced with a perfect day and the scenery on the ranch is absolutely breathtaking! I highly recommend this tour and you will not be disappointed with Kai and Ryan. You are able to request them if interested.
Note-you can opt to upgrade to a fancier ATV with possibly better suspicion. We chose not to as it was $50 more. Our ATV was great-not sure why you want the more expensive one. Suspension was fine. Remember to bring cash to tip-the island has suffered a lot during the pandemic and having been shut down for much of it.

1000 percent book this dont even think twice
Definitely a. must when on the island! This tour was priced well for the time and tour of the whole thing. Most tours are boring but this was very short to the point and fun the tour guide Owen was also very knowledgeable and made things very short and sweet when explaining the history and also on how to drive the ATVs for beginners. If you are thinking about doing this don't think any longer and just book it now!! If they were not booked until we left we would probably do this again!! Only thing i would do different is wear a lot of bug spray lol but i would get bit again even more times to experience this again ( didnt get bit until the very end)
