Be a part of the only true off-road adventure with the staff of Kahoma Ranch ATV & Waterslides! On the slopes of the West Maui Mountains and through cattle pastures, ride your own two-seater Polaris Ranger ATV on private roads and trails. Enjoy the magnificent views of Kaanapali Resort, Lahaina Town, and the islands of Molokai and Lanai on the horizon.

After checking in, a 4 wheel drive vehicle shuttles you to the ATV baseyard at foothills of the West Maui Mountains. You will receive a safety briefing and instruction, and then get suited up with your helmet and goggles for your adventure!

As the trail climbs higher up the slopes, you’ll pass an ancient pu‘u (volcanic cinder cone).  The spectacular overlook across the Kahoma Valley is part way up the mountain and you can see deep into the heart of the mountains.  There is a fresh water reservoir at the top of the trail.  This is a historic network of diversion ditches that were built a century ago to supply water to sugar cane and pineapple fields.  Now you can get get “wet and wild” at this reservoir and enjoy them as waterslides!

7:30am ATV Tour

Approximately 90 minutes of ATV riding, with a brief photo / rest / snack stop at the overlook. This tour does not include waterslides but offers more ATV time.

Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

ATV’s are a LOT of fun to drive, and this tour is particularly well suited for couples and for families with children who are 5 years and over. Two seater ATV’s are more fun because you have someone to talk to and laugh with during the adventure!

And just think.. if you wear a WHITE t-shirt at the beginning of the tour, it will be a RED DIRT shirt by the end of the tour! The terrain here is often dry and dusty at the bottom of the course, and noticebly wetter and muddier as you get higher up on the mountain. Showers are also more frequent at a higher elevation and this tour takes you up to 1800 feet above sea level. You might get dirty at the beginning of the tour, have all the dirt washed off by a rain shower during the middle of the tour, and then be dirty again before the end of the tour. A towel to sit on … or better yet a change of clothing before getting back into your rental car … are ways to avoid a cleaning fee when you get back to HERTZ/AVIS/DOLLAR/BUDGET/ENTERPRISE/ALAMO at the end of your vacation.

The waterslides add a unique touch to this tour, as they have a COMPLETELY different feel than the ones you find at the resort swimming pools. I like to describe these slides as “rustic” … they are basically troughs carved out of the side of the hill and lined with slippery slidey plastic liners. Copious amounts of water are funneled down these slides and into the reservoir, which has a very natural outdoorsy feel. There are more bumps, bends, twists, and SPEED on these slides … and just WAY MORE excitement than the predictable concrete and fiberglass slides that plop you into a chlorine-laced hotel swimming pool.

Because these vehicles hold 2 people, it works really well for couples … and they do allow drivers and passengers to trade places during the tour as long as both of them presented a license at checkin. If two adults are sharing a vehicle the cost is $129 per person. If an adult is driving and a child is riding along, it is $129 for the driver and $65 for the child. The “driver only” rate of $199 applies only when an adult driver is alone in the vehicle.

Where it gets a little tricky is when you get larger parties with multiple kids or odd numbers of people. If you have a party of five adults, four can fit in two vehicles at $129 a person, and the fifth person can either pay the $199 to drive a vehicle alone, or pay the $129 rate and ride along as a passenger with a guide or on an ATV driven by someone in a different party. A mom, dad, and three kids between 5 and 12 would need one of their children to ride along with a guide.

Occassionally two people travelling together will each want their own vehicle rather than either one being a passenger. If that’s the case, the rate would be $199 per driver. If this is your desire, simply select 2 “solo drivers” and 0 “shared adults.”
