Feel the power of the ocean and smell the salty air as crashing waves explode below you and your friends on this private hike of the South Shore. Add snorkeling to your tour to get the best of both sea and land.

Description

Walk along the edge of lithified limestone cliffs, feel the power of the ocean, and smell the salt-infused air as you climb from the heights of the South Shore cliffs down to the cool caves facing Oahu. The compacting of air within the cliffs creates a special surprise, which you really shouldn't miss on your trip to Hawaii.  Hike with your friends and family to Maha'ulepu, an area rich in natural and cultural history. Learn about the epic land and sea battle that was fought and won by the people of Kaua'i in the 1300s, which has given the area its name of Maha'ulepu, literally meaning 'and falling together.' After the hike, you will be given the option to snorkel at a beautiful South Shore location. Snorkeling will add approximately two hours to the tour time.  As one of the last remaining stretches of undeveloped coastline on the South Shore, the Maha'ulepu area is still fiercely protected by locals. Your local guide welcomes you to join them in the fight to keep the land pristine. Take a guided tour of the nearby Makauwahi Cave Reserve to see Hawaii's largest limestone cave and richest fossil site. You will also have an opportunity to visit with the giant land tortoises that line the shore. Rest assured knowing you’ll be doing your part, as 10% of every tour will be donated to Makauwahi Cave Reserve and/or Mālama Maha’ulepu. This wonderful journey is suitable for all levels of fitness/experience, from beginner to advanced. This is a private tour — it will just be you and your private group. Because of this, you are free to go at your own pace and hike as much, or as little, as you would like for the duration of the tour you have selected. Your guide will contact you before the start of your tour to help plan a custom itinerary.
