Up until now the only way that you could visit the National Park (7 Pools) on one of my tours is to take the Reverse Tour and have me drive your rental. (Let's face it, a lot of people didn't like the idea of taking their rental on the back road). Now you can visit the National Park by taking the winding road to Hana IN MY VEHICLE OR YOUR RENTAL for the same price as my Hana and Beyond Reverse Tour.
Make the most of Road Trip to Hana !!!
How would you like to really enjoy what the Hana Highway has to offer in one day, WITHOUT HAVING TO DRIVE YOURSELF UP AND BACK OR BE ON A SCHEDULE WITH STRANGERS?
In honor of celebrating my 5th year doing Private and Exclusive Tours and listening to what my customers and repeat customers have to say, I have designed a tour that will allow you to see and do WHAT YOU WANT TO DO . . . without DRIVING YOURSELF UP AND BACK ON THE WINDING ROAD OR BEING ON A SCHEDULE WITH STRANGERS . . .
INTRODUCING HANA BEYOND FLYBACK TOUR . . .
To begin, clear your other plans. Don’t schedule a luau for later that night or make dinner reservations, and devote the entire day—or trip—to experiencing Hana’s beauty. Be sure to pack a swimsuit, and a change of clothes, so you can stop and swim at waterfalls as a way to break up the drive. ALSO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH CASH. Once you reach Hana some merchants accept CREDIT Cards (if they have cell service) There are a couple ATM's (but not always working)
Though Hana is the alleged destination and perceived end point of the road, thousands of visitors are befuddled each year when they pull into it and realize it’s simply a village of churches and homes. Many visitors rush the journey here, reach the sands of Hana Bay and decide there’s nothing to see. THE BEAUTY IS THE JOURNEY THE PEOPLE AND THE FRAGRANCES !!!
You and your party would meet me at KMart at 6:30 am on the day of your tour and then drop your vehicle off at the airport, so it is waiting for you when you fly back at the end of the day.
Or if you are on a cruise ship coming into Kahului Harbor, I would meet you near the harbor. When you flyback from Hana you are about 5 minutes away from your ship by taxi or Uber.
During the day, you will explore the 30 miles of winding road, stopping for pictures and swimming. Once we reach Hana, we will continue the winding road to Kipahulu, where the Pools of Ohe‘o, or “Seven Sacred Pools,” spill their way down to the sea. There you can either stop to swim (if available) or take the 1.5-mile trek to the 400 foot Waimoku Falls. Accessible via the Pipiwai Trail that weaves through groves of bamboo, the waterfall is arguably one of Maui’s most mystical, magical spots (You would drop me off outside and go in on your own) This will be the TURNAROUND POINT.
On the way back to Hana you will have a chance to take a dip at 200 ft Wailua Falls. I will provide a cooler with ice and water; you can bring your own lunches (to save time)or we can grab a hot lunch at a food truck and put together an impromptu picnic you can enjoy at Hamoa Beach, a utopian, white sand cove tucked away three miles past the town.
In the afternoon, you can check out downtown Hana, stop at a fruit stand or pick up a Shaka Pop. Then the late afternoon can be spent entirely at the Black Sand Beach, or it can be split between the beach and the Lava Tubes. The tourist who decided to drive themselves will be headed back on the winding road by then so they can get back before it gets dark and you will have the place basically to yourselves.
Finally, at 5pm, I will drop you off at the Hana Airport and drive back on my own. At 6pm you and your party will take a quick 20 minute Cessna Flight and see some of the hidden waterfalls on your way back to your car that is waiting at the main airport.
NO OTHER COMPANY (PRIVATE OR GROUP) WILL OFFER YOU AS MUCH IN ONE DAY !!!
NOT INTERESTED IN DOING A FLYBACK . . . BUT STILL WANT TO BE ABLE TO STOP AT THE NATIONAL PARK (7 Pools)?
INTRODUCING HANA AND BACK PLUS TOUR
You and your party would meet me at KMart at 6:30 am on the day of your tour and then either use your rental or mine.
Or if you are on a cruise ship coming into Kahului Harbor, I would meet you near the harbor with my vehicle.
During the day, you will explore the 30 miles of winding road, stopping for pictures and swimming. Once we reach Hana, we will continue the winding road to Kipahulu, where the Pools of Ohe‘o, or “Seven Sacred Pools,” spill their way down to the sea. There you can either stop to swim (if available) or just take pictures. You would have 1 hour at the park. Entrance fee is $20 per vehicle. (You would drop me off outside and go in on your own) This will be the TURNAROUND POINT.
With this tour YOU DO NOT have the time needed to take the 1.5-mile trek to the 400 foot Waimoku Falls, known as the Pipiwai Trail. On the way back you would stop at 200 ft Wailua Falls for pictures and have a chance to swim at Wai'anapanapa Black Sand Beach and Pu'uakaa Falls in the afternoon, before taking the road back to the otherside.
Because the National Park is trying to regulate the amount of large vans that have entrance to the park, there are only a few companies that still offer that stop; but you are limited to the amount of time you can spend because they are on a time schedule.
On the day of your tour, we can discuss your plans in more detail to make the most of your HANA EXPERIENCE !!!
LET'S FACE IT - THE ONLY WAY TO SPEND THE ENTIRE DAY AT THE NATIONAL PARK IS TO DRIVE YOURSELF . . . BUT I FEEL THIS IS THE NEXT BEST OPTION.
YOU CAN STILL USE ANY OF MY SPECIALS OR
DISCOUNTS WITH THIS TOUR (if you QUALIFY)
IS IT WORTH IT . . . YOU DECIDE
