Join our waterfall guru who will lead you to the best backcountry waterfalls (and who knows the best jumping spots too),

canyoneer, or waterfall rappel, on Oahu,
or brush with the wild side as you swim with prehistoric-looking 25′ manta rays in the nighttime water off Hawaii!
Paddle the tallest sea cliffs in the world on Molokai,

or go spelunking in the volcanic lava tubes.
Pause to consider the battle of WW II at Pearl Harbor, then top it all off with a thrilling doors-off helicopter ride!
Like to hike?
You can hire a guide for a safe but mind-boggling Hot Lava Walk,
meander up the 7 Sacred Pools trail, soaking in waterfalls along the way,
or strike out for an overnight at Kalalau on the famous but rugged Na Pali trail!
To experience the arid side of Hawaii, check out Kauai’s Waimea Canyon or get in the lottery for a CCC cabin, deep in the caldera of Haleakala crater.
Food-lovers! Let us share with you our adventurous food crawl around Maui, starting at the Surfing Goat dairy and ending at the vintage noodle shop, with every sort of Hawaiian delicacy and street snack in between.
Hawaii’s food scene has gotten quite sophisticated, so you’ll want to explore some fine, but well off-the-beaten-road, dinners, as well as Honolulu’s monthly street food fest Eat The Street. And you’ll be impressed by dockside eateries, scattered around the island chain, inspired by local chefs who are embracing the farm-to-table scene is the most outstanding way!
You would probably love a luau, but what about the Hana smoothie shop where you pedal the bicycle to power the blender?
