This excursion is totally worth it. We swam in three waterfalls and saw an additional one on our way back to the bus. I’d estimate at each waterfall, you get about 15 - 20 minutes of swim time. It felt like just enough. Two of the waterfalls were not open to the public and we didn’t really overlap with any other tour groups, so we had them to ourselves. The water in Nov was cold—not unbearable, but it probably shortened how long we spent in the water. We weren’t sure how our seven-year-old child would do, but he loved it. I don’t know if this was intentional, but we were in the same group as another family with younger kids, so that made for a better experience for him. Our guide Shelby was really friendly and knowledgeable. She also took pics of anyone who wanted them at each of the waterfall stops. The lunch was good, nothing fancy but you’re not there for the food! I’m 43, never imagined I’d jump off a cliff into a rainforest pool but I’m so glad I did!

Boyfriend and I had so much fun in this hike! We got to swim in 3 waterfalls and crossed 1 river. In our second waterfall I got to jump from 15ft up into the water below. It was such a thrill! We got to sit and eat our lunch there as well. Best picnic ever! It was such a fun hike! We got to learn about trees, plants and flowers in the area during our walk. We got to eat several edible flowers and a guava straight from the tree. So good! Our guide Dave was amazing! We had so much fun because of him. Hike Maui saved us about 20mins of driving time going to the meet up spot since we are staying near the area of the hike. They suggested to pick us up instead and we really appreciate that. Overall it we had such a blast! Probably the best thing we did in Maui!

First and foremost- Be sure to have proper footwear for a muddy, slippery hike! I had water shoes on which worked well but you really need to be mindful of where you are walking. Nicole was our guide and she is extremely knowledgeable. She talked about everything we were seeing and doing really well. There was a very inquisitive 8 year old girl on our tour. Nicole was so good with her explaining every question asked and posing questions to the girl as well. I really enjoyed their interaction! My husband and I loved the tour. It was just enough without having to try and find our way along with all the other tourists in search of waterfalls on the road to Hana. Will definitely recommend this tour.
