Ocean Cliff Trail Hawaii ATV Tour - 1 ½ hours
The views are magnificent, the trail is fun and easy for all skill levels. Ride among towering ocean cliffs and beautiful mountain streams, then touch the mighty Pacific at a remote, private pebbled beach once favored by the great King Kamehameha. The guides will share the local history all along this very scenic Adventure in pristine Kohala, also known as the Hidden Hawaii. Offered twice daily.
15-Mile Waterfall Adventure - 2 ½ hours: Our most popular tour. We start at 300 feet and ascend to 3000 feet, high in the oldest rainforest on the Big Island. The scenery is spectacular as we ride under canopies of local forest trees, through lanes of wild ginger and cross several mountain streams. See plants that grow nowhere else on the planet. We will visit a beautiful waterfall and take a short hike to the pond at the foot. This is a very private and exclusive adventure with lots of fun riding and awesome panoramic scenery to behold.
22 Mile Deluxe Waterfall Adventure - 3 hours: Our newest adventure is filled with spectacular views from start to finish. Ride along the beautiful Kohala Coastline cruising on top of 200 foot Majestic Ocean Cliffsides. Your journey leads you to a private and secluded bay (once property of King Kamehameha) where there is a bird's eye view of an 1930's lighthouse. Our native Hawaiian guides share genuine history and let you enjoy the special beauty. Travel high to the mountains through a cool Eucalyptus rainforest and brisk mountain streams. We will make our way up to 2000 feet elevation of the oldest volcano of the Big Island and stop at two waterfalls. We provide refreshments and all of the fun.

Hopefully we can do some more trails next time
The best and plan to do this activity on our next trip to kona. Worth it. Kaeo and kalani and staff were just amazing.
Our tour guides were very friendly and helpful. Their knowledge of the island and it people was very impressive as well. The ATV trail we followed was a blast and we hope to repeat next year!
Better than ATV ride "around the rim" these guys let us drive faster
The guides were very watchful. Maybe recommend to the guests to not slow down for corners or puddles as I had to brake EVERY time for the 3 people in front of me whenever there was a corner, puddle or top of a hill and it took away from my experience. Obviously I backed off to keep my experience fun and DIRTY!!!!
Stop for pictures with the cows by the ocean
It was great ! The only complaint was that it wasn't long enouhg. :)
I would highly recommend this activity. The guides were awesome and the ride was a lot of fun.
If you could get closer to the light house it would make a great addition to the ride
JUST WISH THAT IT WAS LONGER AND THAT WE HAD MORE TIME AT THE WATERFALLS.
we saw some beautiful scenery that would like to have been able to stop and take pictures of. other than that we had a great time.
