This beautiful hike takes place in a unique valley, and it is the most popular. You will experience a variety of waterfalls ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet on two different streams. Under each of the falls, there are clear and large swimming holes. For additional thrills, there are several areas where you can safely jump from rock ledges into the waterfall pools down below. This makes for an excellent photo opportunity! The naturalist guides will teach you about Maui’s wonders. You will end the hike under a Hawaiian waterfall for a natural “shower”. The largest of the falls has ferns draping down from a huge overhanging ledge, and you can walk completely behind it!

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

I am often asked “why go on a hiking tour? Can’t I just go and experience the same thing on my own?”

The answer to that question is a definitive “no.” You could walk down the same trail on your own, and your experience will be completely different. The presence of a knowledgable local guide who loves the “aina” (land) can make all the difference in your understanding and appreciation of everything that you see. You’ll learn about plants that have uses that you never imagined. You’ll taste fruits that are foreign to you. You’ll learn of history and geology of the area that offers insight you wouldn’t get going there alone. Hike Maui, the company that organizes these tours, likes to refer to their guides as “the secret ingredient for your experience.”

Obviously a guide also knows exactly where these places are so your day in the magical rainforest or volcanic landscape is maximized. No hunting for that elusive waterfall … you’ll go straight there and have more time to soak it all in. A guide who knows the “aina” will help keep you safe, and provide support if you need it. Would you like to jump off a cliff into a waterfall pool below? Doesn’t it sound like a good idea to have a guide who can tell you where it is safe to jump and where there a rocks hiding below the surface???

The East Maui Waterfall Hike is the most popular tour. This is the event that will truly make you glad you had a guide with you. As you hike through an “off-the-grid” farming area you’ll taste fruit you’ve maybe never seen before. Your guide will impress you with his or her ability to take plants from the jungle and demonstrate uses you’ve never thought of. You’ll probably learn what a tapioca plant looks like (yes, it comes from a plant … not from a jar with the Gerber Baby on it).

If you are really into hiking, you might consider doing two of these tours … either the Hana Waterfall Hike or the East Maui Waterfall Hike on one day paired with the Haleakala Crater Hike on another.  If you want to do a quick one, check out the Short Waterfall Walk.

A word about gratuities … it is traditional for guides in such a service industry to rely on gratuities for a significant portion of their income. This time-honored tradition promotes excellence in service and you might want to bring along cash in case you want to express your appreciation to your guide in this way. Please note that for larger parties of 7-10 people this tour operator asks us to include a $150 gratuity for guides in our billing for your tour.
