Kevin's Activity Tips:
This combo adventure is a good way to squeeze in two completely different events in one day, and works well for those who only have one free day in their schedule. The waterfall portion of this tour is the same as the "Waterfall Walk" tour, a shorter version of the Waterfall Adventure offered by Hike Maui. If only have one day, this tour gets you out on the water for some snorkeling with sea turtles (yes you will see them ... there are MANY of them and they aren't hard to find when you've got a kayak guide telling you where to go and where to look. The afternoon gives you a glimps at the very beginning of the Hana rainforest and waterfalls. If you've ever wanted to jump off a rock ledge and into a waterfall pool, this is your chance!
The only downside to doing both of these events as a combo in one day is that you don't get to see ALL the waterfalls in this valley. The very best of them is a longer hike than is done on this short tour. If you want to do kayaking with the sea turtles and then do the full Waterfall Adventure that includes the whole valley you've got to order them indivually for two different dates.
